Pollution and Engine Performance <ul><li>Independent tests show for every 400 litres of diesel and petrol burned in a combustion engine produces an incredible: </li></ul><ul><li>3.2 kilos of sulphur </li></ul><ul><li>1 kilo of soot </li></ul><ul><li>1 kilo of resins and varnishes </li></ul><ul><li>Engine manufacturer Caterpillar say 90% of engine wear is caused by acid action, not friction. For every 10,000 miles of usage, engine performance is reduced by 1%. Recent data from the USA Road Transport Authority confirms for best results you need to treat the fuel and oil system in an engine. </li></ul>
This is a simplified diagram of a fuel injection system. All fuel contains hydrocarbons, sulphur and water. When these elements are mixed together in the fuel tank and you add heat, they form H2SO4 which is sulphuric acid. As mentioned on our previous slide, 90% of engine wear is caused by acid build-up. As a bi-product of H2SO4, gum, lacquer and varnishes accumulate in the fuel system. We would liken that, in our body, to cholesterol in the arteries.
During the combustion process, these elements are burnt and form carbon deposits in the combustion chamber. This carbon also blocks fuel injectors, resulting in a loss of engine power and fuel efficiency. Our fuel conditioning products work by surrounding the sulphur molecule and emulsifying the water to prevent them mixing together. This way we prevent the formation of sulphuric acid. We will simulate this in a demonstration shortly. carbon deposits
All of our fuel conditioning products contain an effective combustion catalyst . Scientific tests have proven that our products speed up the fuel burn by 25-30% , and can provide combustion efficiency of up to 90%. This can be proven scientifically with emissions tests. Hydrocarbon emissions come about by unburned fuel. After an engine is treated of our products, the hydrocarbon emissions are substantially reduced. Carbon monoxide emissions are brought about by incomplete combustion. Once again, these are reduced after usage of our products. Our company offers a money-back guarantee that we will reduce emissions.
We now invite you to look at our test tube demonstration that shows how contaminants form in the fuel system, and how our products provide a solution to this problem. Here we have 2 clean test tubes, into these test tubes we will now add equal amounts of diesel fuel.
Now we will add concentrated sulphur acid to the test tube on the left, this ages the fuel and simulates conditions in the fuel system
We will now place stoppers into the end of each of the test tubes and shake them to simulate the contamination of a fuel system. We will know place stoppers into the end of each of the test tube and shake it and roll it. Within a few seconds you will notice the formation of Gum, lacquer and varnish forming on the side of the test tubes. This is how you system becomes blocked and your vehicle loses power. Just like cholesterol in your body. This is also unburned fuel, fuel that you have paid for and not used.
Now we will introduce Firepower to the test tube on the right and shake. Acid is now added in the same treat rate as the test tube on the left. As you can now see, the test tube on the right is clear of the build up and has neutralised the acid. Treated Fuel Untreated Fuel
If we now add heat to the test tube, you will notice that the untreated test tube turns black, forming carbon, and the treated one stays totally clean. This is exactly what happens in your engine
We clean the engine and fuel system and once we clean it we guarantee it stays clean. This means better fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and reduced maintenance costs Treated Fuel Untreated Fuel
Our Products The following slides are an overview of some of our products and the solutions and benefits that they offer.
Firepower FP 4000 Firepower FP 4000 is designed specifically to treat problems that are inherent in diesel fuel and fuel storage. These problems include water contamination in fuel tanks and the formation of deposits in the fuel system of an engine. Diesel fuel is unique in that it is hydroscopic , meaning it forms water through condensation in storage. This combination of water and diesel provides an ideal environment for bacteria to form. This bacterial algae contaminates the fuel and clogs filters, injectors and causes poor performance and black smoke during combustion.
Water Contamination in Diesel Fuel <ul><li>An engine running on diesel contaminated with water and bacteria will experience the following: </li></ul><ul><li>Poor performance </li></ul><ul><li>Poor fuel economy </li></ul><ul><li>Hard Starting </li></ul><ul><li>Rough Idling </li></ul><ul><li>Excessive Smoke Pollution </li></ul>Firepower FP 4000 works by emulsifying the water, starving the bacteria of its environment in which it grows. This water is passed harmlessly through to the combustion chamber. Firepower FP 4000 also stops bacteria from reforming, and increases fuel storage life.
Firepower FP 4000 contains active ingredients that remove harmful deposits from the fuel delivery system . FP 4000 neutralizes acid, cleans varnish/sludge from fuel tanks and lines . Firepower FP 4000 will also extend fuel filter life as shown below Firepower FP 4000 is hydrocarbon based, and contain s no harmful chemical ingredients or toxic additives .

Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner <ul><li>Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner is a blend of petroleum conditioners formulated to achieve the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I mprove d fuel stability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Improved Fuel Economy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower carbon formations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Control water contamination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dramatically improves the burning of waste oil </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>G reatly decrease exhaust emission s </li></ul></ul>
Bunker fuel exhibits some very unique characteristic s as it is a lesser refined product than petrol or diesel . Generally it is high in sulphur, contains paraffin, abrasive impurities such as corrosive ash and abrasive salts and other insoluble residues. A high percentage of water is present with the fuel in storage and thus acid formation occurs quite readily. <ul><li>An engine running on low grade bunker will experience the following: </li></ul><ul><li>Poor Fuel Economy </li></ul><ul><li>Excessive Pollution </li></ul><ul><li>Excessive Engine Wear </li></ul><ul><li>Increased Maintenance Costs </li></ul>Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner
The Solution Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner has been formulated for optimum water and bacteria control . Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner disperses this water into the fuel slowly, removing the environment for the bacteria to live in, and allows the water to be burned off. When this is accomplished bacteria cannot reproduce and the associated problems are eliminated. Acid formation is dramatically reduced as are the other various poisonous gases resulting in reduced exhaust emissions.
<ul><li>Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner contains inhibitors to prevent the formation of deposits in the fuel storage system. Fuel filter life is extended after the initial cleanup has occurred. </li></ul><ul><li>Firepower Bunker Fuel Conditioner will: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>C lean and maintain the fuel system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>C ontrol corrosion and deposits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>P rovide lubrication for the moving parts in the fuel system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce Maintenance Costs </li></ul></ul>
The Firepower fuel pill is a revolutionary product with multiple benefits for all types of vehicles, petrol and diesel. The Firepower pill can increase performance, drive ability and fuel economy while preventing engine knock , pinging and valve recession What is it?
How does it work ? The Firepower Pill is a catalyst that speeds up the combustion process in your engine.
When the fuel is burned in the combustion chamber not all of the fuel is used and a proportion goes out the exhaust as poisonous emissions. This is fuel that you have paid for and not used
- light - medium - heavy Fuel used in everyday vehicles consists of molecules of different densities: light, medium and heavy elements. The Firepower pill works by burning more of the heavier elements of your fuel, increasing power and fuel economy
By providing a more efficient combustion process, you will get: <ul><li>more power </li></ul><ul><li>reduced exhaust emissions </li></ul><ul><li>better fuel economy </li></ul>
There are many brands of engine and fuel treatment products available on the market. Most are specifically designed to treat one problem area only. The Firepower pill, with its high tech formulation, performs many tasks on its own. As a consequence, the cost of treatment is far less than having to buy four or more separate products. The Firepower pill performs each of these treatments to a very high quality standard How is it different to other products?

What is it? A system that safely and effectively removes contaminants from the oil system in an engine. The Firepower system cleans an engine more thoroughly than previously possible, thanks to new technology from Firepower. For use in both Petrol and Diesel Engines
How your Engine Oil is Affected Research has shown that an estimated 10% of the polluted oil remains in the engine after the oil is drained. This oil includes wear metals and contaminants that damage your engine and reduce performance Diesel and petrol fuel contains elements such as sulphur that cause engine wear by contaminating engine oil, which reduces the effectiveness of the lubrication system. The Firepower engine flushing system effectively solves problems caused by contaminated oil in petrol and diesel engines.

The Flush Cycle cleans all parts of the engine that are lubricated with oil, including the sump, bearings and hydraulic lifters. The Flush Cycle
The Flush Cycle This is a 2 step process incorporating a kinetic cycle and a static cycle. The kinetic cycle uses a strong detergent that thoroughly cleans the oil system while the engine is running. This is unique to our machine, and ensures the best possible result. The static cycle then neutralizes the cleaning agents and dispersants used in the kinetic cycle, leaving the engine in like new condition.
