Cold temperatures often slow or stop diesel fuel flow during start-up and in daily operations. When it is cold enough to cause gelling in the fuel, equipment and vehicles can become disabled. This includes over-the-road trucks, heavy machinery, automobiles, generators and other equipment that must operate in low temperatures.
The diesel fuel gelling plugs the diesel fuel filter preventing passage of the fuel. The only solution to this problem is to raise the temperature of the fuel until the fuel can flow again. This may sometimes requires towing the equipment to an indoor location or bringing a heater to the equipment site. The costs related to diesel fuel gelling can become expensive when you add up downtime and related repairs.
The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater offers a simple solution. The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater is a thin, flexible, silicone/fiberglass heating pad, that easily wraps around the filter housing to maintain full contact and to evenly transmit heat to the filter housing helping to avoid the risk of diesel fuel gelling. The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater is an electric blanket for the fuel filter housing that helps to keep the fuel flowing and to reduce unnecessary downtime.
When it is time to change the filter element, the Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater is easily released for transfer to the new filter housing. Diesel fuel gelling and related problems are avoided.
The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater is available in 12vdc, 24vdc, 120vac, 240vac and a dual grid model combining the option of powering with direct current or alternating current in the same Preheater.
The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater can also be used to preheat the lubricating oil filter housing and the hydraulic oil filter housing. The added heat to the filter housing helps avoid filter bypass in the warm up stage and contributes to a faster equipment warm up and quicker full flow filtering. The Universal Diesel Fuel Filter Preheater carries a three year materials and workmanship warranty.
