Cat fines are hard, extremely abrasive particles of aluminium and silicon oxides, a by-product of the cracking processes used in fuel distillation. Low-sulphur fuels often contain higher levels of catalyst fines ("cat fines"), the scouring action of which can cause extremely rapid wear on an engine's moving parts with potentially catastrophic consequences. Claims against insurers derived from cat fines are on the up. See the most up to date BOLLFILTER CIMAC presentation.
