Bulk Filtration sequence and product positioning
Sans 342 recommends that fuel leaving the refinery should meet an ISO 4406 cleanliness code of 18/16/13 however this fuel is contaminated through the supply chain and normally will be 4 to 8 times dirtier than this. Therefore a mine using 2 000 000 litres of fuel per month would have to remove more than 20 kg of dirt each month from this fuel. This operation requires large capacity efficient filters to bring the fuel to a standard that will not swamp the on board filters.
