UK Company Marine 16 eliminates Diesel Bug

The Diesel Dipper will remove water and sludge from the very bottom of your fuel tank.

Gloucestershire based company, Marine 16, have produced a water and sludge separator designed to end diesel sludge problems.

Aimed at all boat owners the Diesel Dipper removes all water, sludge and contaminants from the very bottom, or floor, of the tank. Used when underway whilst the contents at the bottom of the tank are sloshing around it will effectively scour the tank bottom of all debris.

The Diesel Dipper is a permanently installed bypass system, fitted with a 12v pump. It sucks out all water and contaminants via the drain plug, into the patent pending “Tank Separator” where, separated from the diesel, they fall to the bottom and are simply removed by opening a drain valve. The clean diesel is then returned to the top of the tank after passing through a 40 micron Stainless Steel washable filter that adds fuel “Polishing”.

For boats without a drain plug they supply a “Dip Tube” .This simple flange is fitted to the top of the tank with 4 self tapping screws and allows a 10mm pipe to pass through to enable the dipper to scour everything off the bottom of the tank.

“Used in combination with our Diesel Fuel Treatment we would guarantee an end to sludge related diesel problems – A bold statement indeed” Says Peter Weide, Managing Director, but adds that by removing water you remove 90% of fuel related problems whilst remaining issues are addressed with Marine 16 Diesel Fuel Complete that helps prevent other sludge issues and protects the engine.

Made in the UK, the Diesel Dipper is available to purchase on line or at Force 4 Chandlery and other selected independent and national retailers. A full list can be found on their website

Marine 16 are manufacturers of Fuel Treatments, used by the RNLI and Royal Marines.
