Alternative fuels require the selection of stable, suitable materials

Modern engines and the injection systems require highly efficient fuel filter systems, which can react with extreme sensitivity to non-standard fuels. Fuels with high biomass content and some alternative fuels have high potential for developing aggressive contents under certain storage conditions. In addition the blow by gases emitted by alternative fuels will alter the lubrication oil of an ICE internal combustion engine. Analysis of the suitability of filter materials (filter media, elastomers, plastics, etc.) therefore requires new test methods that have to be successfully passed. A state of the art fuel filter includes more functionality than retaining dusts and particles.
