Why do I need a fuel tank filter?

Once stored fuel can easily become contaminated by numerous factors such as dirt, small metal particles and other abrasive components. These particles in your fuel can cause damage for your pump as well as serious engine problems and result in costly downtime, repairs and inconvenience. This fuel tank filter will help prevent all of these from happening because it filters the dispensed fuel and separates the particles. As part of the fuel filtration, you should also consider water contamination. View our water tank filters here.

How long should a fuel filter last before I need to replace the element?

Unfortunately, there is no exact answer to this question as it all depends on the level of contamination in your fuel. The dirtier the fuel in your tank, the quicker the filter will get full. We advise that you always have a spare filter element on site so that you experience no downtime if your filter is full and blocks.

If you’re experiencing your filter elements blocking a lot quicker than usual, then this may be down to changes in the bio content of diesel. Read our article to find out more. In this case, we recommend considering fuel tank water absorber such as Aquafighter that removes both free and emulsified water directly from the fuel tank.

How can I extend the life of my filter element?

Filters need replacing when they have done their job by filtering out impurities from fuel. Therefore, the dirtier the fuel that passes through them, the quicker they will get full and need replacing. One of the tips we can give is to fit the cleanable, stainless steel GoldenRod mesh filter element.

By fitting this inline first, it is able to catch any large contaminants, leaving the paper one to filter out the smaller yet still damaging bits, therefore protecting it from having to be replaced as often.

Why is it important to know your pump flow rate when choosing your filter?

If your pump is too fast for the maximum flow rate of the filter, the filter will keep blocking leaving you unable to dispense. This may also result in the pump running in partial bypass, causing premature wear on the pump vanes and windings. In extreme cases where you have say a 50lpm filter being used with a 150lpm pump, it may even blow the filter element inside rendering it useless. Therefore, if your pump is 70lpm, your filter must be able to cope with atleast that.
