About Microbial Contamination

Unique Flow Path Design of De-Bug

Maximising Magnetic Flux Density

 


Micro-organisms

Once bacteria, moulds and yeasts in fuel have grown to be visible their colonies consist of millions of individual cells. Very simply stated, all micro-organisms are single-celled with a membrane surrounding them. The membrane physically contains the cell and the proteins needed for survival while maintaining separation between the internal cell and the external environment. Ions, which are electrically charged, travel across this membrane and their movement is essential for the organism's life.

When micro-organisms are placed under the influence of a changing magnetic field, the ability of the cell to maintain the electrical and chemical potential across the cell's membrane is greatly affected, resulting in the cells death. Both "Tri-Mag" and "Multi-Mag " are unique paths of fluid motion produced inside a De-Bug that produce the relative changing field necessary to kill single-celled organisms.
 


What De-Bug Does

The De-Bug Fuel Treatment Units are not a filter nor do they supply any chemicals to destroy micro-organisms. Instead, De-Bug Units are a static magnetic inline device that create an optimum magnetic flux field density directly responsible for destruction of the cell membrane. Exposing the microbes to a strong, changing magnetic field will ensure maximum destruction of the cells. This patented design of multiple ceramic permanent magnets located within the unit, when properly sized and strategically placed, have been shown to have a 97.5% efficiency rate in destroying the damaging micro-organisms within a single pass.

De-Bug is a cost effective, one time, permanent installation, with no moving parts, no electrical hook-up, and maintenance that may require only an occasional cleaning. And unlike chemical biocides, micro-organisms which have been destroyed by the De-Bug unit do not collect at the bottom of fuel tanks. Instead, the debris stays randomly suspended in the fuel and due to their sub-micron size easily pass through engine components. They are then burned with the fuel and leave no build-up in tanks. Remember, if you have to clean the fuel tanks once, you will most likely pay more than installing a De-Bug.
