Prior Diesel Volvo Penta Action Service Engineer Assists Piling Company

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

TAD1373VE - Volvo Penta Engine RepairOur Volvo Penta trained engineers have been on site in London again this week. A key client contacted us with urgent maintenance work needed on his Volvo Penta system. The engine had developed a water leak and was out of action. Our workshop co-ordinator discussed the ongoing problem with the end user and quickly discovered that the leak was coming from the water pump housing to cylinder block joint. Parts were ordered and our engineer mobilised to site the next morning.

After completing a site induction, the engineer inspected for leaks. The coolant was drained from the system and associated hoses and components were removed without causing any environmental contamination.

Once the water pump was removed, it was evident that the seal had become damaged and was the cause of the leak. Genuine Volvo Penta Parts were used to complete the repair, including Volvo VCS coolant.

Following completion of the repair the system was tested to ensure the fault was rectified.

 

Whilst on site, our engineer carried out a full system diagnostic check-up to ensure no faults were developing and also to check if any outstanding campaigns or upgrades were available.

Having completed the repair within 24 hours, our client was able to continue with his piling project and still meet his critical deadlines.

Prior Diesel Fuel Polishing Service – Diesel Bug Crisis

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Fuel PolishingPrior Diesels’ fuel polishing experts have been out on the river this week attending a fuel contamination crisis on board a marine leisure vessel.

Our client had been carrying out his 250 hour engine service and found his fuel filters were severely contaminated with “Diesel Bug”. “Diesel Bug” is usually a result of excessive water within the fuel system, allowing micro-organisms to feed and build colonies, resulting in a thick sludge. If the contaminated items are left unattended this can cause serious fuel damage.

Our fuel experts attended the site and carried out fuel analysis using our highly sophisticated sampling unit, which allows us to read fuel contamination ISO levels as well as water content in PPM.

The standard for Diesel fuel in the UK is 18/16/13 and a max 200ppm water. Upon testing the vessel was found to have fuel levels exceeding 400ppm water and an ISO reading of 25/23/20.

Once the contamination types were confirmed, our fuel polishing expert set up our custom fuel polishing system to eliminate the problem in the most efficient way, using up to 1 micron high efficiency filter bags and water removal filters.

During polishing our sampling unit was constantly monitoring the tank for changes. Upon completion the fuel levels were recorded at 18/14/10 with 186ppm water, which far exceeds the ISO standard.

If you would like to know more about fuel polishing, give our service department a call on 01493 441383.
