Fuel filtration new development challenges

New regulations like INOVAR AUTO, global development and customer behavior are driving new requirements and technologies. New engines have low fuel consumption, low pollutant emissions, development teams in different countries and low maintenance costs.

As consequence, fuel filtration has also been challenged to new technology levels. Low fuel consumption and low pollutant emission require new technologies like turbo, direct injection and downsizing. These technologies require higher contaminant filtration efficiency for smaller particle size and higher burst pressure to survive in higher fuel pressure lines. Global development teams leads to global specifications and markets. For instance, temperature application range is increased and need to achieve high and low temperature conditions. Maintenance cost is a customer decision making factor. In this way, fuel filters need to have extended dust holding capacity (DHC) to fulfill longer service interval.

This paper presents these new market trends and fuel filtration technology directions. New materials, new production process and new product design concept are discussed and a novel fuel filter developed is presented.
