When looking at the Diesel Fuel Industry today, you can only see a glimpse of what it was a decade ago. Changes in diesel engine designs, driven by increased EPA regulations, have caused critical issues for OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and the operators of diesel engines.Traditional diesel fuels are gone, and so are the “traditional” methods of treating and servicing diesel fuel. Today’s diesel fuels and bio-diesel blends present equipment owner operators and OEM’s with an entirely new set of concerns. While the quality of today’s fuel struggles to keep pace with the advances in power and performance by equipment manufacturers, the industry must turn to advancements in fuel treatment. The Advanced Additive Technology found in DZL-PEP W/AAT is the result of diligent monitoring of the current fuel industry, years of engineering experience , a dedication to quality and the ability to react to the needs and concerns of all diesel fuel users. Take a closer look at the issues today and why DZL-PEP W/AAT is your advanced solution to fuel-related concerns.
Today’s refining process for ULSD and Bio-Fuel is producing diesel fuels weakened in a number of areas, including thermal stability and the level of anti-oxidants. These issues combined with advanced injection systems, higher operating temperatures and varying blends of fuel, can only be addressed with the latest in additive technology. DZL-PEP w/ Advanced Additive Technology offers unparalleled engineering and addresses these issues at a time when it is needed most. By improving the fuel’s thermal stability, DZL-PEP W/AAT helps eliminate the harmful by-products of fuel oxidation and offers dramatic increases in performance and storage stability.
The Anti-Rust and Anti-Corrosion Technology found in DZL-PEP W/AAT is incredibly effective. Preventing the formation of harmful rust and corrosion build up on surfaces within the fuel system allows for better performance and more efficient operation, in addition to increased equipment life. DZL-PEP W/AAT also effectively manages rust in steel fuel tanks, another critical area. Elimination of steel corrosion in treated fuel, as demonstrated in ASTM D-665A, is the highest standard for prevention in this trouble area. DZL-PEP W/AAT not only meets, but exceeds these recommendations for rust and corrosion protection.
Injector deposits have been an issue with diesel engines since their inception. However, with deposits on injector tips being the primary area of concern for decades, the arrival of IDID (Internal Diesel Injector Deposits) has turned the industry upside down. New High Pressure Common Rail Injection Systems represent the latest in diesel injector technology, and OEMs have invested billions in this state of the art technology. The problem today comes from the fuels and not the injection systems themselves. OEMs, including CAT, John Deere, Cummins, Volvo, Navistar, and Peugeot have all seen the formation of Internal Diesel Injector Deposits and the problems they represent. Unlike injector tip deposits, the clean up process is far more challenging with IDID and the impact of these deposits requires advanced additive technology like that found in DZL-PEP W/AAT.
While the industry’s attention is focused on the crippling effects of IDID, in today’s fuel systems the more traditional injector tip deposits remain a major concern. Any build up or formation of varnish and carbon will have significant impact on performance of equipment and lead to costly repairs & downtime. With very tight tolerances in these components, the slightest build up or formation of varnishes or carbon, can have significant impact on fuel consumption.
The formation of injector deposits can dramatically alter spray patterns and have an impact on an operation’s bottom line in a number of ways. From maintenance costs and downtime to high fuel consumption.
Texas Refinery Corp.’s DZL-PEP w /AAT offers the detergent and cleaning power needed to “clean up” both IDID and Injector Tip deposits. In addition, DZL-PEP W/AAT offers a “keep clean” technology that will protect equipment against the harmful effects of running today’s fuels, tank after tank.
With a steady decline in the lubricity of Low Sulfur Diesel and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, OEM’s and equipment operators have felt the harmful effects of wear to fuel system components. Implementing lubricity standards helped draw attention to the issue, though still leaving many questions unanswered. DZL-PEP w/ AAT provides levels of lubricity far exceeding the requirements of OEMs and that of other fuel conditioners. While maintaining the required regulations for low sulfur levels, Texas Refinery Corp. offers a solution to the industry’s lubricity concerns with DZL-PEP w/ AAT.
Made from a variety of organic materials, Bio-Diesel has higher levels of lubricity than that of ULSD. The common practice of blending these fuels, to address the lubricity issues in Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, has led to the highly unstable Bio-Blends the industry is experiencing today. DZL-PEP W/AAT adds lubricity while addressing all the critical needs of today’s fuels systems.
DZL-PEP W/AAT ‘s Advanced Additive Technology acts in a significant manner to control the effects of water in fuel. The demulsifier promotes the separation of water and fuel when water is excessive. In vehicle tanks where fuel is re-circulated, water separators are vital to the reduction of water build-up in fuel. DZL-PEP W/AAT helps such systems by offering more efficient fuel/water separation. While using DZL-PEP W/AAT, peak performance and drivability are maximized.
