IPU Diesel Defence DDM3 fuel polishing unit

The first in our range of heavy-duty systems, the DDM3 Fuel Polishing Buggy offers exceptional filtration efficiency, higher flow rates and an extensive range of filter inserts to cater for the most challenging cleanup applications.

With exceptional flow rates of 150 l/min and high capacity fuel filter housings, the DDM3 Fuel Polishing Buggy provides all the extra power you need to protect your fuels and get the job done in the shortest possible time. In addition to both solid and bacterial contamination being removed down to a cleanliness of ISO 18/16/13 or better, the introduction of a series flow path allows staged filtration and exceptional water removal.

Problems with water contamination? The unparalleled performance of Filtasorb2 cells removes all free water and 99.9% of entrained water to a phenomenal 100ppm or less.

For more complex applications, a full range of additional options are also available. Particle counters can be included for analysis, as well as bacterial fuel conditioners, flow meters and more. Whatever your application, we have an option to ensure your system is fully compliant to industry specifications.

Perhaps you need on-site verification of cleanliness level. Practical quick connect fittings allow for instant plug-in to the Particle Pal fuel cleanliness analyser, allowing real time results in ISO/NAS/SAE in a matter of minutes.
