BOLL FILTRATOR: Efficient CAT fines filtration 

What are Cat Fines?

Cat fines, short for catalytic fines, are abrasive particles found in fuel oils that can cause serious damage to engines and equipment. These fines are a byproduct of the refining process and can lead to increased wear and tear, decreased engine efficiency, and even catastrophic engine failures if not properly addressed.

The BOLL FILTRATOR Type 8.64/8.72 is particularly suitable for the filtration of catalytic fines (CAT Fines) from HFO MDO and fuel oils generally.
Targeting particles in the 5 to 10 micron range helps to increase reliability of components. Wear of pistons, piston rings, cylinder liners, injection pumps, nozzles and measurement/control equipment is reduced.

Advantages of the BOLL FILTRATOR Type 8.64/8.72

The BOLL FILTRATOR is specifically designed to tackle the challenges posed by cat fines filtration in fuel oils and ensures:

  • Clean and high-quality fuel
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Optimum performance of the engines
