WINTERIZATION PROTECTION  

    It used to be when cold weather was around the corner you just dumped some kerosene into the diesel fuel tank.  If it was going to get real cold you added more kerosene and hoped your diesel engine would start.  If it started you hoped that it wouldn’t freeze up.  It didn’t matter if you had less power.  It didn’t matter if it increased your costs per mile. It’s what you had to do.
    That was then.  This is now!  Today’s chemistries alter the makeup of the fuel to lower temperatures where it will perform without gelling, freezing or plugging and testing proves it.
 
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. 

Wax Dispersing Additives

   Wax Dispersing Additives
(“WDATM”), are an exclusive additive from Amalgamated, IncWDATM, along with other cold flow improvers, reduces the paraffin wax crystal size as well as the shape of the wax crystals.  It does this at fuel temperatures below the fuel Cloud Point allowing these smaller wax crystals to disperse throughout the fuel matrix.  This permits the solidified paraffin content (wax) to go through fuel filters and minimize or eliminate any engine operability problems with fuel filter plugging below the Cloud Point temperature.  Using WDATM in distillate fuels (including Bio-Diesel blends and fuel oils) also helps to lower the CFPP (Cold Filter Plugging Point) temperature and can provide dramatically improved cold weather operability of the fuels in ambient temperatures as low as 25 to 30 degrees below the fuel Cloud Point temperature.

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.

WINTER  3000  

    
Amalgamated's Winter 3000 uses unique new technology for lowering diesel fuel CFPP (Cold Filter Plugging Point) temperature for superior diesel equipment winter operation. This new technology works directly with the nucleator receptors present in all diesel fuels to effectively enhance the molecular bonding of paraffin (and biodiesel) particles.  Improved additive to paraffin bonding allows for lower additive treat rates and SUBSTANTIALLY reduced additive costs.
