Why can't plastic buckets be filled with diesel?

- May 27, 2019-

1. After the diesel oil is stored in plastic drum for 3 days, the gum content is increased by more than 10% compared with the initial period; after 9 days of storage, it is increased by 30%. Glue easily forms carbon deposits, film and sludge in the diesel engine, which affects the normal operation of the engine.

2. The diesel acidity value will increase. After 7 days of standing in a plastic bucket, the acidity value of the diesel oil increased by about %. The increased acidity will accelerate the erosion of the precision parts of the diesel engine supply system.

3. Will increase the carbon residue of diesel residue. After the diesel is stored in plastic drums for a few days, the residual carbon in the residue is more than doubled, which seriously affects the quality of diesel. In short, there are many oil damages in the plastic drum storage rack, and it is easy to store with iron shovel. The iron drum for storage should be free from rust and debris, and then painted with lacquer or epoxy or galvanized to ensure oil quality.

4. The diesel distillation range will be significantly extended. The storage of diesel in plastic drums will prolong the distillation range, which will affect the starting performance and work balance of the diesel engine, and will prevent the diesel from burning completely, forming carbon deposits and increasing the fuel consumption per unit.
