Cold Filter Plugging Point / Pour Point
The wax-like solidification of fuel when exposed to low temperatures determines its temperature usability boundary
The increased use of Marine Gas Oil because of the MARPOL-Regulations the CFPP gets more important
CMT has developed a simple Test, to provide fast and cheap a reliable result.
The wax-like solidification of fuel when exposed to low temperatures determines its temperature usability boundary. The relevant indicator for that is the CFPP (Cold Filter Plugging Point). Usually determination of this point requires a costly lab analysis. Due to the MARPOL regulations usage of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) has increased significantly. Depending on the date of delivery, suppliers and place of delivery the delivered fuel has varying properties. To prevent that the fuel blocks filters due to insufficient cold resistance it is important to know the CFPP.
Our test kit allows a quick and easy determination of the temperature boundary above which it is safe to use the fuel and that on site.
