ROCHEM FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL
Product Code : ROCHEM FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL
DESCRIPTION Effective January 1st, 2010, the European Union mandates the consumption of 0.1% sulphur content marine gasoil (MGO) for vessels in ports (directive 2005/33/EU). The vessels calling on California ports must operate on a 0.5% sulphur distillate fuel no less than 24 nautical miles from port according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
This requires a transition for main engines operating on heavy fuel to the new low sulphur distillate fuel. Unfortunately, the hydro processing process used to remove the sulphur from fuels also removes the lubricity properties of the fuel. The injection equipment of diesel engines is prone to excessive pump wear when using low or ultra-low sulphur fuels, since this kind of fuels have relatively low viscosity and reduced lubricating value.
FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL is a new, concentrated lubricity additive for use in low sulfur diesel fuel, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel and 0.1% sulfur MGO.
FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL stabilizes the fuel and improves the lubricity of the fuel, the fuel pumps and injectors and maintains clean injectors. This happens thanks to its low content of sulphur. It comprises dispersants, surfactants, detergents and lubricity additives. Its highly effective fuel lubricant minimizes metal-to-metal contact, thus extending the life of fuel system components.
Thanks to the stability that FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL provides, sediment and asphaltenes are maintained in suspension during storage.
FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL utilizes anti-scuff technology satisfying BS ISO 12156-1, ASTM D6079 and IP 450/2000. Its lubricity improvement has been evaluated by the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR).
When stored for a long time, fuel degradation is prevented thanks to the oxidation stability that FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL offers to the fuel. Testing according to ASTM D2274 shows substantial improvement in thermal stability in all distillate fuels treated with FOT - LOW SULPHUR FUEL, regardless of initial fuel quality.
