Diesel Fuel Desulfurization Filter 2007-01-1428

The molecular filtration of sulfur components in ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel is described. A comprehensive screening of potential sulfur removal chemistries has yielded a sorbent which has the capability to efficiently remove organo-sulfur components in ULSD fuel. This sorbent has been used to treat ULSD fuel on a heavy duty engine equipped with NOx adsorber after-treatment technology and has been shown to lengthen the time between desulfation steps for the NOx adsorber. The fuel properties, cetane number and aromatics content, etc., have not been changed by the removal of the sulfur in the fuel with the exception of the lubricity which is reduced.
