Although marketed especially for diesel, the De-Bug magnetic filter can also treat any gas liquid or powder suffering contamination. They can be used to reduce bacterial contamination in oils and other refinery fuels such as kerosene. They have been tested and found successful in reducing the presence of Legionnaire’s Disease bacteria in Water Cooling towers and reducing bacterial contamination in Emu oil. They can be used to treat most fuels including heavy oils and Bio-Diesel.
Product Specifications – Materials & Construction
De-Bug fuel treatment units are manufactured from special engineering materials which are carefully chosen for their resistance to diesel and their adaptability to cope with various applications, such as the marine environment, the mining industry, and agricultural applications amongst others.
In general, external housings and the internal centre stud are gravity die-cast marine grade, corrosion resistant aluminium alloy or stainless steel. These are particularly resistant to salt water and other environments. Larger units are manufactured to order from coated mild steel, or stainless steel.
The magnets are manufactured from ferrite metal in ceramic. They are magnetized such that the South Pole is on one face (top) and the North Pole is on the other (bottom). The magnets are stacked such that the North Pole of one magnet always faces the South Pole of the adjacent magnet. This ensures that the magnets are attracting at all times so that the magnetic field strength is maximised between them.
The magnet spacers are manufactured from Acetyl M90 plastic. This type of plastic is particularly resistant to environmental stress cracking and numerous chemicals usually associated with diesel fuel. It is also capable of withstanding extreme temperatures.
The spacers have two functions with the De-Bug Fuel Treatment Unit.
The first is to separate the magnets so that fuel passes between them at the desired flow rate. The second is to act as flow directors so that the fuel flows between the magnets and through the centre of the middle magnet in the Tri-Mag stack. This is unique to the De-Bug fuel treatment unit and is one of the reasons for the units effectiveness.
Careful design resulting in maximum performance.
