The ULTRASAFF (ULTRASonic Automatic Fine Filter) System was developed by the Finnish company Acomarin Oy. The application of the system to the filtering and treatment of heavy fuel oils is described. The objectives underlying development of the system were the improvement of the mechanical strength of the filter elements; more thorough automatic cleaning of fine-meshed filter elements; fuel homogenization; water emulsification; and the application of ultrasonics in the filtering system.
