Micfil International - Slogan: it's time to go green!

Keeping your diesel fuel free from water
and other contamination is fundamental to
ensuring the life of the engine in your equipment


Micfil Water Separator

Contaminated fuel can be incredibly damaging to diesel engines, especially those fitted with the latest generation of high pressure fuel injection systems. Water is especially troubling as it will cause serious performance and reliability problems.

The Micfil Water Separators (WS) will remove free water and solid particulates from even the dirtiest, most contaminated fuel.


Major engine benefits

  • Avoid fuel/water related breakdowns
  • Remove solid/semi solid contaminants such as dirt, rust and sludge
  • Maintain exhaust emission standards
  • Extend engine rebuild period and life
engine - saved by micfil water seperator. No water in engine oil


How good is the quality of the fuel being used in your equipment?

Water in Oil - seperate water from oil with the micfil water seperatorIf you are hiring out generators, pumps or plant, can you be sure of the condition of the fuel going into your equipment? If you are using fuel provided to you on site, can you see that it is contaminated?

Poor fuel storage, bad fuel transfer and housekeeping practices, or simple human error, can easily result in water, sand, grit, rust etc in fuel, all of these can harm your engine.

If you cannot be sure of the quality of the fuel going into your tractors, excavators, generators or pumps the engines that power them could be at risk and you could end up with expensive repairs and downtime.

By fitting extra levels of protection on your vehicle or equipment you can reduce the risk of costly damage due to contaminated fuel.

The micfil Water Separators (WS) will remove free water and solid particulates from even the dirtiest, most contaminated fuel. When fitted in conjunction with a conventional fuel water separator, they will work together to ensure that your engine is protected from harmful water and particles. The WS acts as the ‘first line of defence’ removing slugs of water and dirt, sludge and grit allowing the filter/separator to filter the fuel unhindered.



How the micfil water separator works

Workflow-Micfil-Waterseperator When the fuel enters the unit the baffles in the system immediately induce a swirling action, which causes water and solid contaminants to separate out of the fuel. The contaminants sink to the base of the unit where they are retained - the contaminants are simply drained and disposed of when the system is full. An optional sensor with buzzer can be supplied to indicate this.
