Fuelmaster® Technical Information – Clean Diesel Fuel
All petroleum fuels are composed of hydrocarbons. No matter which refinery or how “clean” the fuel is, no matter what make of engine or how new it is, some of the hydrocarbon components in the fuel will form particles of gum, resin and carbon during the heat of the combustion cycle.
- It is these particles which cause fuel to burn incompletely, creating:
- Unburned particles discharged as black exhaust smoke
- Deposits on piston crowns, exhaust valves, upper ring areas and turbocharger blades
The advanced technology of Fuelmaster® assists in overcoming these problems by inhibiting the formation of polymeric masses at the point of combustion. Nature itself adds to the problems of the end user of diesel, because fuel is handled several times before arriving in the tanks. At each handling stage there is a possibility of contamination by water or air borne microbes (cladosporium). It can also enter your fuel via breather pipes.
Heated fuel returns from the injector lines to the fuel tank, which then cools and contracts, drawing in some moisture laden air and fungal spores that then condensate, running down to the bottom of the tank. It is on this interface of water and fuel that the diesel bug thrives and multiplies.
Fuelmaster® acts on the water, making it become part of the fuel molecule, then it is burnt off harmlessly.
This product very quickly pays for itself, leaving you to reap the benefits of cleaner running engines, with extended oil life and reduced maintenance costs.
