SAFEGUARD YOUR DIESEL ENGINE AGAINST WATER AND PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

It’s easy to think that fuel contamination is something that happens “in the bush” but this is simply not true! Did you know that 72% of all diesel fuel injection system failures are caused by water and fuel lubricity problems? Direction-Plus™ Diesel Fuel Pre-Filter Kits protect late model common rail diesel engines against costly injector failure.

Installing a Direction Plus™ Pre-Fuel Filter kit between the fuel tank and the O.E.M fuel filter will remove the majority of water and particle contamination.This leaves the O.E.M fuel filter to do the final and finer filtration. This ensures you are maximising the protection of your diesel fuel system.

For the ultimate front line defence against water and particle contamination, investing in a Direction-Plus™ Diesel Fuel Pre-Filter Kit will protect your investment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

BENEFITS OF FITTING A DIESEL PRE-FILTER KIT:

  • Reduce wear & tear and avoid repair costs that can exceed $10,000
  • 95% water separation and superior particle removal
  • Ability to separate emulsified water from ULSD
  • Clear water drainage bowl to easily identify removed water
  • Keeps critical engine components clean
  • No filter bypass – contaminated fuel will not be sent to the fuel system even when the filter is blocked

Why are pre-filter kits so important to common rail diesel fuel injection systems?

Designed specifically to cope with our extreme weather conditions and poor fuel quality, they are the perfect choice for drivers in Australia and New Zealand.

From the humidity of Northern Queensland to the dry cool climate of South Australia and all the way down to frosty Invercargill in New Zealand, the Direction Plus Diesel Fuel Pre-Filter kit will remove water and other contaminants from our Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD).

ULSD is more susceptible to water emulsification, that is water molecules suspended in diesel which is harder to remove than in traditional diesel fuel. This is why old technology like sedimenters work relatively well removing whole water, but struggle with emulsified water, the contaminant you can’t see.

How do you know if your vehicle has water / particle contamination?

  • Loss of RPM / power
  • Blows excessive smoke
  • Has a foul odour
  • Shudders and shakes at all speeds
  • Suddenly stops while driving / hard to start

PROTECT YOUR DIESEL ENGINE AGAINST COSTLY OIL & SOOT CONTAMINATION

Direction-Plus ProVent oil separator kits protect your modern diesel engine by substantially reducing the amount of oil entering the engine from blow-by gas in the crankcase ventilation system.

By not fitting a Direction-Plus ProVent system, it is likely that your engine will experience a progressive reduction in performance. Direction-Plus ProVent systems, are specifically designed to separate and redirect oil and air from blow-by gas produced from within the crank case. They also provide the option of returning the oil back to the sump.

For the ultimate defence against oil and soot contamination, investing in a Direction-Plus ProVent oil separator kit will protect your investment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

BENEFITS OF FITTING A PROVENT OIL SEPARATOR KIT:

  • Prevents oil and soot contamination entering the clean air intake
  • Excellent protection for turbocharger
  • Minimises oil consumption*
  • Prevents oil buildup in intercoolers
  • Regulates crankcase pressure
  • Keeps critical engine components clean
  • Reduces exhaust smoke and odours
  • Saves you money

*Only in installations where the oil is returned to the sump

PROTECTION AGAINST COSTLY REPAIRS AND POOR PERFORMANCE

The blow-by gas problem is compounded by modern engines fitted with exhaust gas re-circulation systems (EGR) whereby a proportion of the exhaust gas is routed back into the engine. With the presence of oil from the crankcase ventilation system, the oil collects the exhaust particles. This combination of oil & exhaust particles from the EGR builds up to a point where it blocks inlet manifolds and valves, resulting in reduced engine performance or failure. The images below are typical examples of the build-up in engines not fitted with a Direction-Plus ProVent system.
