    Abstract

    Due to the changing quality of heavy fuel oils, especially with respect to density, traditional purifier and clarifier cleaning plants are being operated near their limits to ensure sufficient cleaning of these fuels. The ALCAP separation system was developed specifically to operate on high density fuels, thereby guaranteeing optimum cleaning efficiency for the fuels of today and tomorrow.
