Even with good fuel housekeeping procedures, water and particle contamination can get into storage tanks through the atmosphere. Night-to-day temperature changes cause tanks to slowly inhale and exhale. As biodiesel is hygroscopic it absorbs water from any new air it comes into contact with. The inhale-exhale process also enables dust and other wear particles to come into contact with your fuel. To protect your diesel, we recommend installing an IPU Vent TRAP (Thermally Reactive Advanced Protection) tank breather which removes moisture from incoming air and, during the exhale cycle, passes dry air through the vent trap purging moisture from the filter.
An IPU Vent TRAP tank breather provides:
By fitting a Vent TRAP you are reducing the risk of water entering your tank. The Vent TRAP will remove up to 97% of water from moist air as it enters the tank. The IPU Vent TRAP provides longer life, lower maintenance and superior moisture-blocking when compared with standard desiccant filters.
The Vent TRAP breather removes moisture from incoming air. During the exhale cycle it passes dry air through the vent trap, purging moisture from the filter.
