Fuel purifiers play a crucial role in the merchant navy, where ships rely on diesel or heavy fuel oil (HFO) for propulsion and power generation. These fuels, although essential, can contain impurities that can lead to engine damage, reduced efficiency, and increased maintenance costs. Fuel purifiers are designed to remove these impurities and ensure the smooth and efficient operation of marine engines.

This course aims to provide comprehensive knowledge about fuel purifiers used in the Merchant Navy. You will learn about the types of fuel for purifiers, the distinction between clarifiers and purifiers, the centrifugal separation process involved, heating requirements for different fuel types, applications on board ships, as well as the operations and maintenance of fuel purifiers. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of fuel purification systems and be equipped with the necessary skills to ensure efficient and effective operations on merchant navy vessels.
