Minimize the impact of low-sulphur fuel’s fluctuating properties
Today’s new fuels keep you compliant with the global sulphur cap, but their behaviour in your fuel line is anything but certain. Whatever the specifications say, the actual properties of low-sulphur fuels can vary dramatically from bunker to bunker. To secure your engine’s uptime, your fuel line must be prepared for the challenging fluctuations in viscosity, density, temperature and cat fines. Read about the issues to the right or explore below for Alfa Laval service solutions that maximize your engine’s protection.
