Accordingly, LSI Chemical said the four new diesel fuel additives for diesel and biodiesel fuel blends all exceed top-tier detergency requirements. Therefore, through the collaborative work between the company and a powerful cetane improver, the new additives will be highly efficient for downstream fuel production.
The solutions’ benefits
Particularly, the company says, these solutions will better restore power and fuel economy while providing long-term protection against corrosion and waxy polymeric deposits. As a result, refineries and fuel jobbers now have a menu of diesel fuel additives to select, said LSI Chemical in a media release.
Thus, downstream producers will now be able to develop a premium diesel or biodiesel fuel for production and resale.
About the solutions
For instance, the new TotalArmorClean450 is a multifunctional aftermarket additive. Accordingly, it improves ignition, power, and fuel economy. Moreover, and according to LSI Chemical, this additive can remove “sticky” injector deposits.
The solution mainly achieves so by including External Diesel Injector Deposits (EDIDs) and Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDIDs). Worth noting, LSI Chemical developed this solution to provide a significant performance.
Similarly, TotalArmor607 will significantly improve wear protection by using the most advanced lubricity chemical available, the company says. Besides, this product also uses controls injector deposit formation and controls moisture.
On the other hand, the ArcticArmor523 is a cold flow improver for diesel fuels to improve low-temperature performance and significantly improve winter operability. It can also enhance multiple characteristics of diesel, says LSI Chemical. For instance, including Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP), Pour Point, and Cloud Point for today’s modern diesel fuels and typical biodiesel blends. Besides, the company recommends this solution for all diesel engines.
Lastly, and introduced in 2020, TotalArmorW7 is another winter blend diesel fuel aftermarket additive. Particularly, it ensures complete operability in freezing temperatures.
Outlook in LSI Chemical
Finally, LSI Chemical President Todd Cawley said in the release; “Each product has been carefully engineered to deliver specific improvements. Thus, to be used in the aftermarket – fuel jobbers, fleets, diesel fuel refiners, and end consumers unlike to improve fuel for resale.”
Moreover, “as diesel fuel experts, we have sourced products and tested combinations; particularly, to ensure that what we bring to market will exceed expectations. Furthermore, each product is rigorously tested and proven to perform. Therefore, our sampling program and top-notch R&D lab; are available to customize fuel based on the specific needs of your region or customer base.”
