What's your fuel density/temp/cSt?

Oh, I assumed it may have been HFO.
Anyway, reel it back a lil
It shuts off on water overflow alarm...
Is it overflowing water or fuel or is t actually overflowing anything at all?

Hi Big Pete,

At first I am sorry for very late reply.
You got the real picture. We recollect the fuel oil same way you described. We do all the changeovers by manual valve and diaphragm pumps.
Our LO purifiers are working excellent. We faced the problem for only HFO purifiers.

No, shortening de sludge interval not solving the problem. Other way our HFO quality is good, sludge product rate is less. So there in no point to shorten the de sludge interval.

Thanks.

hi guys

I hve a problem with osd60-0136-067 hfo purifier. Our sludge production increase suddenly and there is water in clean oil. We already changed seals and gaskets yet the same outcome. We also observed that there is pressure in sludge port. Anyone can help me out?

Thanks
Brian

If the sludge production has increased suddenly: -
1) Has the quality of the fuel changed? i.e. have you started using a new batch of Bunkers, or maybe your new Bunkers are not compatible with the previous Bunkers and the reaction between them is creating this sludge.
2) Is the purifier actually discharging Sludge or is it discharging water or clean oil all through the sludge discharge?
3) is the Purifier running at the correct speed? or are the clutch pads/drive belts slipping, causing oil to discharge out of the sludge discharge.
If your purifier has a Gravity disc, is it the correct size for the density of the oil your are purifying?
4) Is the Purifier running at the correct temperature, 98C for HFO 95C for 4 stroke engine Lube, 90C for slow speed 2 stroke engine Lube.

Good luck and report back.
