Default Fuel Analysis

Before and after separator results from a fuel analysis we had done at Texas Oiltech Laboratories.

You failed to list the water and ethanol content.

Water info is listed by "Water and Sediment" towards the bottom of the picture.


We did not test for ethanol in the analysis. Do you have issues with ethanol in your diesel?

Get it, the "thewholetruth" Still requires filtration...link to other discussion: Filter-less diesel separator

Cost - Do you know your total fuel flow rate? Or let me know what type of engine(s) you have and I can find out. Cost depends on what size you need.


Life span - The units come with a 10 year warranty. They are built to last.


There is no filter inside, nothing to change out. The only maintenance would be to every so often take a small wire brush(or something similar) and poke around the sump a little bit to clear it out. Very easy to do and would be very seldom unless you get a really bad batch of fuel.


Also, they come with an optional sensor/alarm that lets you know when the sump is getting full.

So the microscopic ( 10-15 micron ) particles that Trpntj pointed out in his post are still building up and are not being filtered out by your separator.
Is this correct?

If in fact that is correct, is it also fair to assume that one must still rely on the OEM or aftermarket filtration to take care of these and other particulates?

The 10-15 micron particles in the "note" were found examining the separator after running the contaminants through. So the separator did it's job, the particles were found IN the separator not downstream. This is why we left that part out of the Fuel Analysis picture we posted - it's confusing.


That being said, we don't recommend removing any filtration devices you already have in place, it's good to have multiple stages of filtration. Also, with any OEM or aftermarket filters you have, you can look forward to the filter elements staying cleaner longer with a CES separator installed upstream.

What exactly is the filtration rate? 10 microns? 5 microns?
