Are all bio-diesel fuels for industrial engines made the same?

One of the number one questions we get with our diesel engines is, “can I run bio-diesel?”  Engines have what we call Elastomers- soft parts which are the rubber hoses or “O-rings”.  If an engine is not set up correctly to use bio-diesel, then this fuel can cause an adverse reaction with the Elastomers.

What Is Friction Loss?

If you do not know what your friction loss is, it is very difficult to come up with the final term or final pressure in relationship to the pump application.  Friction loss is defined as the total drag on the fluid on the pipe of the fluid that you are pumping.  For example, if we
