Dewatering unit targets contaminants

MarShip's Diesel Dipper MarShip's Diesel Dipper removes free water and contaminants from the bottom of fuel tanks

MarShip have launched a static dewatering and fuel polishing unit.

The Diesel Dipper removes free water and contaminants from the bottom of fuel tanks with a 12v DC pump. The water and sludge is then drained off in a tank separator before the clean fuel is returned back to the tank through a 40 micron washable stainless steel filter, which polishes the fuel.

MarShip said the unit is designed to keep fuel in good condition and prevent filter blockage. It pointed out that as sulphur levels in fuel fall, the risk of diesel bug increases.

The pump operates regardless of whether the engine is running and is suitable for any size engine.

The Diesel Dipper should be connected to the drain plug, however, if there is no drain plug users can use MarShip’s tank top ‘Dip Tube.’

This is attached to the top of the tank where a 10mm draw pipe is pushed through to rest on the bottom of the tank.

MarShip said its research showed that up to 50% of boat and yacht owners have experienced problems with diesel bug or water and contaminants in fuel at some time.
