Performance Fuel Economy

PERFORMANCE DIESEL FUEL ECONOMY 
   
    The high cost of today’s diesel fuel poses many disadvantages that the equipment operator must overcome.  Diesel fuel additives that will improve performance or reduce costs is welcome, and highly desired by the equipment owner.  If it does both it is even better.  If a diesel fuel additive reduces costs, improves performance AND reduces fuel system wear while providing lubrication that is fantastic!    
 
DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVE COMPONENTS
 
    Amalgamated® only uses lab proven and field tested ingredients in it’s custom blended and premium formulations.   The following component categories provide the protection and performance that is demanded when we formulate a package to meet the needs our customers expect.
 
Cetane 
    Cetane improvers aid in start ability especially on cold mornings by reducing the ignition delay time in the combustion chamber.  Cetane improves the combustibility of low and mid range diesel fuels by increasing complete combustion thus reducing smoke and odor.
 
Lubricity
     Light duty rotary fuel injection pumps rely on the fuel for lubrication.  Lubricity is the fuels ability to reduce friction in moving parts in fuel pumps and injectors.  Today’s Ultra Low Sulfur fuels reduce the natural lubrication in the fuel.  Lubricity agents increase the fuels ability to reduce friction in moving parts in fuel pumps and injectors.
 
Detergent
     Detergent additives are used as cleaners to remove carbon and gummy deposits from fuel injection systems and keep them clean to insure a complete fuel spray pattern.
 
Stabilizers
     Distillate fuels are organic in nature and from the time of manufacture until it is used it will degrade.  Stabilizers retard the natural hydrocarbon degradation of fuel oils during long-term storage.  A complete stabilizer package includes de-emulsifiers, sludge retardants, rust-corrosion inhibitors, metal deactivaters and anti-oxidants.
 
WINTERIZATION COMPONENTS of DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVES
 
Pour Point Depressants
     Pour point depressants reduce the point when fuel jells.  They modify the wax crystals’ shape and size to reduce their formation and allow other flow modifiers to perform as they are designed.
 
Flow Improvers
     These additives improve cold filterability (CFPP) to avoid fuel filter plugging and help lower the fuel pour point.  Other flow improvers like anti wax settling additives suspend wax crystals in fuel tanks to prevent wax sediment that will clog fuel systems.
 
Cloud Point Reducers
     Cloud point reducers lower the temperature at which the fuel paraffin begins to haze or cloud. De-Emulsifiers & De-Icers These additive agents break up fuel water mixtures to prevent freezing during cold temperatures.  Glycol ether type chemicals are the only effective de-icers that work by combining water droplets and dissolving water accumulations.
