What Can Cause a Microbial Contamination in Fuel?

There are a wide variety of different reasons why your diesel has become contaminated with microbial bugs. A faulty tank and condensation are two of the more common causes. It’s also possible that you have done everything you can to prevent contamination but your fuel supplier has brought you fuel that already has microbial contamination.

Quite often, water is the source of bug problems in fuel. When water is able to form in puddles at the bottom of the tank, it starts to separate from the diesel. When this happens, bugs can start forming in between the two substances.

How do Diesel Bug Treatments Work?

If we discover that you do have a diesel fuel bug, then we will begin the process of separating the bug from the fuel. To achieve this, our fuel polishing services will ensure that any harmful contaminates are removed from the fuel along with any water and sludge at the bottom of your storage tank.

The process starts with a pick-up tube that reaches the very bottom of the tank. This tube then takes fuel out of the tank and puts it through the fuel polishing machine. Once the fuel is clean, it is returned to the tank through another pipe.

How Can I Prevent Contamination from Happening Again?

The best way of avoiding any form of contamination again is to get annual checks from a specialist. They will be able to run quick tests to see if your fuel needs treatment again. It’s also important that you make sure that your tank does not have any signs of wear and tear, as this is one of the most common causes of contamination.
