LIGHTEN THE LOAD

Heavy machinery, trucks, and construction vehicles are regularly under tremendous stress. They are susceptible to high idling times, long hours of operation, and heavy weights. These conditions can lower RPMs, buildup deposits of carbon, increase emissions and regenerations, and wear down and foul injectors.

In the marine industry, there are many regulations ranging from what kind of fuel you can use and where you can use it — ULSD and EN-590 diesel fuel versus gas oil/bunker etc. Combined with an environment surrounded by water this is a blueprint for problems. Excessive emissions,  lack of lubricity and water contamination are just a few of the issues that can cause massive headaches in today’s high technology engines.

The overuse of these vehicles combined with today’s Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel and bio-diesel blends can cause an array of issues that can slow production, damage engines, and cost your business time, money, and clients.

It’s no question that in the fuel world, fuel additives are fundamental for a smooth operating engine and fuel system.

Common fuel issues in the trucking, transportation, & heavy machinery industries

Water

Water is the key component for initiating phase separation and corrosion, degrading the quality of fuel, or complete and total engine destruction.

Injecting water with fuel can cause your engine to cut out, create irregular idling, or produce gums, sludge, and varnishes which can cause injectors to malfunction.

Darkened fuel, as well as black or white smoke can indicate a significant level of water in your fuel.

Fuel Ox™ is prepared to protect against water in your fuel and passing through the engine. It was designed with a demulsifier that will filter water out of fuel and disperse it into the engine’s racors, separators, or filters. Fuel Ox™ also contains anti-corrosive properties to protect against the corrosion from water from your fuel.

rEGENERATIONS

Diesel vehicles made after 2007 struggle with the dreaded regeneration cycle. Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are a hassle; they slow you down, eat up your fuel, and create costly downtime. Fuel Ox is proven to reduce regens by over 60% by improving combustion so that there are less unburnt hydrocarbons being expelled into the filter, resulting in less regenerations. Additionally because of the cleaner burn, your EGR valves remain much cleaner too.

 

Fuel Ox™ contains a patented catalyst that ignites fuel at a lower temperature while prolonging the burn. Diesel burns cleaner and more productively. This thorough combustion allows for less buildup of soot which means less regens, less bakeouts, and less DPF replacements.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

ASPHALTENES

Most of today’s heavy duty engines employ a high pressure fuel injector system where pressures are routinely greater than 30,000 PSI. As the fuel passes through the engine, it is heated and the combination of this heat with the high pressure cooks the fuel and creates little pieces of tar approximately two microns in size — asphaltenes.

Asphaltenes can be identified by little black particles or discolored fuel or they can become a black coating of sludge on your filters.

 

They can cause filters to plug, decrease fuel economy, and increase the need to clean and replace filters and injectors.

Fuel Ox Asphaltene has all of the same benefits of our flagship product, but it will also inhibit the formation of and break down any asphaltenes that have already formed in the fuel.

lubricity

Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, or ULSD, refers to the process of removing the sulfur in diesel fuel.

While reducing the amount of sulfur in fuels does provide less expensive and “environmentally friendly” diesel, it has one major drawback: reducing the amount of sulfur reduces the lubrication necessary for an engine to function properly.

Sulfur is a natural lubricant when added to the fuel, promoting an efficient and smoothly operating fuel system.

However, removing the sulfur from diesel causes a significant decrease in the lubricity for injectors and upper cylinder heads, causing corrosion and wear on the pumps, and ironically an increase in emissions.

Fuel Ox™ replenishes lubricity that is lacking in today’s fuel.

GELLED DIESEL

Cold weather brings with it a threat to your fuel system. When the temperatures drop, diesel can become clouded and gel-like due to the paraffin wax found in diesel. This transition known as “cloud point” can cause the diesel to not combust as well while also plugging filters.

If the temperatures drop low enough, the fuel can hit it’s “pour point.” Diesel will freeze all together and no longer flow, becoming unusable until the fuel re-liquefies.

Fuel Ox Cold Charge™ has all of the same benefits as Fuel Ox, but will reduce the effects of wax by lowering the pour point by 15° – 20°F.

Common Fuel Issues in the marine transportation industires

EMISSIONS

No one likes soot and smoke. Not only is it unsightly on your transom but it also looks unprofessional and  everyone knows its bad for the environment.

Thankfully, Fuel Ox Marine™ has been shown to substantially lower CO2, NOx, and many other types of emissions.

Fuel Ox Marine™ contains an organometallic combustion catalyst. This patented catalyst lowers the combustion point in diesel by over 95°C and generates a longer burn.The incorporation of this unique technology enhances Fuel Ox™ by providing the user a cleaner, more thorough combustion.

Due to this more efficient combustion there is a significant reduction of unburned fuel and emissions such as soot or smoke being diffused into the atmosphere.

WATER

When it comes to your boat, water can be your best friend and then quickly become your worst enemy. Water is the key component for initiating phase separation and corrosion, degrading the quality of fuel, or complete and total engine destruction.

Injecting water with fuel can cause your engine to cut out, create irregular idling, or produce gums, sludge, and varnishes which can cause injectors to malfunction.

Darkened fuel, as well as black or white smoke can indicate a significant level of water in your fuel.

Fuel Ox Marine™ is prepared to protect against water in your fuel and passing through the engine. It was designed with a demulsifier that will filter water out of fuel and disperse it into the engine’s racors, separators, or filters.

Fuel Ox Marine™ also contains properties to protect your tank and other metal surfaces against the corrosion from water in your fuel.

FUEL ECONOMY

Getting the most out of your fuel becomes a priority with unpredictable trends in fuel pricing. With Fuel Ox Marine™, you can be confident knowing your money will stay in your pocket, and out of the pump.

Fuel Ox Marine™ contains a patented combustion catalyst that creates a more thorough burn of the fuel, resulting in about 7-10% better fuel economy.

 

This catalyst promotes a more complete burn of the fuel, so the user is getting the most out of the fuel as possible. The less fuel that is wasted, the further a tank full of fuel will go. This also results in more power and responsiveness.

STABILISATION

Both gas and diesel can begin to degrade in three weeks, In fact, with today’s Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel it can be become unusable within one year while bio-diesel blends have a lifespan of only half of that.

With bad fuel, comes corroded fuel injectors, clogged filters, an increase of emissions, loss of power and lower RPMs, even engine failure.

Degraded fuel can be identified dark or murky in color, creates slimy filters, sludge buildup, floating particles in tank, as well as an increase of smoke and soot. Not to mention, expense of having to pump out bad fuel can be painful

Fuel Ox Marine™ keeps fuel stable and prevent fuel degradation for up to two years.
