Our fuel stability improvers retard or prevent deterioration in gasoline and middle distillate fuels or diesel. These additives block the oxidation or polymerization reactions of cracked hydrocarbon molecules. Increase fuel system resistance to oxidation and extend storage life.
Microorganisms in fuel systems can degrade fuel colour and clarity and cause corrosion that damages tanks and pipes, plugs filter systems, and creates odours. Anaerobic organisms are particularly troublesome because they liberate corrosive, foul-smelling hydrogen sulphide.
We offer biocide products for gasoline, gasoil and biodiesel that kill or inhibit microbe growth in fuel tanks or distribution lines, control microorganisms to ensure fuel quality.
Cetane improvers modify combustion in the engine. They encourage early and uniform ignition of the fuel. They discourage premature combustion and excessive rate of pressure increase in the combustion cycle.
Cetane number is a measure of the ignition quality of diesel fuel; it is not a measure of fuel quality.
We offer cetane improvers for gas oil, diesel and biodiesel.
In ice cold weathers waxy paraffins in distillate fuels start to crystallize. As the crystals enlarge, the resulting particles can plug a fuel filter, starving an engine of fuel. To improve “cold flow” fuel performance Cargo Treatment Services offer additives that:
Lower the temperature at which heavy paraffins begin to form crystals
Co-crystallize with the heavy paraffins to promote formation of small, independent crystals that remain fluid and can pass through a filter
Additives from our product line can help ensure that your fuel products perform as designed in cold weather.
These additives improve conductivity of the fuel, permitting electrostatic build-up to safely dissipate without generating a spark
We offer conductivity improvers for gas oil, diesel and jet fuels.
The corrosion inhibitor forms a protective layer, which prevents corrosive substances in the fuel from coming in contact with metal and repels water. Corrosion inhibitors decrease the corrosion rate of metals and alloys.
Remove residual water from refined fuels
Residual water in refined hydrocarbon fuels can be seen as a “haze,” even at levels less than 0.5 percent by weight. Water in fuel can degrade engine performance.
We offer dehazers for gas oil, diesel and fuels.
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) scavengers are widely used in hydrocarbon and chemical processing facilities. These specialized chemicals react selectively with and remove H2S to help meet product and process specifications.
Our sulfide scavengers are specifically designed to treat both crude oil and refined products, to be a cost-effective solution for a broad range of operating conditions and product compositions.
Fuel system icing inhibitor is an additive to aviation fuels that prevents the formation of ice in fuel lines. Jet fuel can contain a small amount of dissolved water that does not appear in droplet form. As an aircraft gains altitude, the temperature drops and Jet fuel’s capacity to hold water is diminished. Dissolved water can separate out and could become a serious problem if it freezes in fuel lines or filters, blocking the flow of fuel and shutting down an engine.
We offer icing inhibitors that prevent icing formation in fuel lines.
Diesel fuel must meet minimum lubricity requirements to protect components such as fuel injector pumps and fuel injectors against premature wear. Producing Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel fuels refiners increase the severity of hydro treating to cut sulphur content, most of the natural lubricity is removed. Lubricity improvers are able to restore the lubricity to the required performance level, by creating a fine layer over a metal surface, so that direct metal-to-metal contact is avoided. Cargo Treatment Services lubricity improvers perform even in the coldest climates and are “A” certified for use with the new ULSD fuels.
Due to volatility of mercaptans, they tend to evolve into vapour spaces, where their offensive odours create problems in and around storage areas and throughout pipelines and shipping systems used for transportation causing metal corrosion.
Our Mercaptane Scavengers remove mercaptans from all oil streams.
RON/ MON boosters
Octane measures the fuel’s ability to resist knock which is caused by self-ignition of the fuel. Our wide range of RON/MON boosters improve the fuel’s resistance to self-ignition.
We offer RON/MON boosters to improve the octane number of gasoline (components).
