Fuel Oil System

Suction Filters, Supply Pumps and Pressure Control Valve



Before the fuel enters the supply pumps a suction filter removes any particles which could cause damage. There are two filters, one for each pump. Made from a fine metal gauze, they can be cleaned as necessary and reused.


The supply pumps raise the pressure to about 7 bar. To keep the discharge pressure constant, a pressure regulating valve is used.

There is also a manual bypass which can be used should the regulating valve develop a fault.
