DZL-PEP ARCTIC with Advanced Additive Technology
With a steady decline in the lubricity of Low Sulfur Diesel and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, OEMs 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 ARCTIC 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 ARCTIC w/AAT.
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 ARCTIC w/ Advanced Additive Technology offers unparalleled engineering and addresses these issues at a time when it is needed most. The ASTM D6468 Test is a standard procedure for determining a fuel’s thermal stability, or resistance to breaking down under temperature and pressure. The results to the left show a filter after untreated fuel had been run in the fuel system. The picture on the right shows the same fuel run using DZLPEP ARCTIC w/AAT. By improving the fuel’s thermal stability, DZL-PEP ARCTIC w/AAT helps eliminate the harmful by-products of fuel oxidation and offers dramatic increases in performance and storage stability.
PREVENTS INJECTOR DEPOSITS
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 ARCTIC w/AAT. The correlation between harmful deposits and performance is a proven concern. As shown above, the formation of deposits cover internal surfaces inside the injector. These deposits can dramatically reduce power and fuel efficiency. The chart to the right shows the reduction of power from these deposits and the improvement in power once DZL-PEP ARCTIC w/ AAT is added to the fuel.
The Anti-Rust and Anti-Corrosion Technology found in DZL-PEP ARCTIC 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 ARCTIC 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 ARCTIC w/AAT not only meets, but exceeds these recommendations for rust and corrosion protection.
