Abstract
Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA) has been involved, since 1984, with research into the control and/or elimination of microbiological contamination (MBC) in distillate fuels and fuel systems. The purpose of this research is to determine the most effective and environmentally friendly way to combat MBC. The research included long term laboratory trials to determine the most effective biocide available, the investigation of alternative chemical, mechanical and physical methods of control and the design and development of an innovative flow-through ultrasonic system for the control of microbiological contamination in distillate fuels. All the above control methods will be discussed with particular emphasis on the use of biocides and ultrasonic energy in terms of efficacy and environmental impact.
