  4. 4. Refinery Fuel Oil Grades Produced
  5. 5. The Problems With Burning Fuel <ul><li>The common problems associated with burning fuels may be summarised as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Incomplete Combustion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contamination & Deposit Formation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Acid Formation and Corrosion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Water Contamination and Bacterial Growth </li></ul></ul><ul><li>F uel produced by the major oil companies has failed to keep pace with the requirements of modern engines, or the expectations of society in relation to emissions. Despite the technology being available, economic and other pressures prevent the major oil companies from applying it to the fuels they produce. Oil companies will continue to produce fuel to the minimum specification required by the relevant authorities. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Leading engine manufacturer Caterpillar says that 90% of engine wear is caused by acid action, not friction. For every 16,000 kilometers of usage, engine performance is reduced by 1%. This is supported by data from the USA Road Transport Authority which confirms that 70% of engine performance problems can be attributed to the fuel system and 30% to the oil system. The Problems With Burning Fuel
  7. 7. The Firepower Solution Fuel and Oil Conditioners Firepower provides a solution for each of the problem areas identified. These individual solutions fit together like a jigsaw, giving the end user a complete result. “ It is our aim to bridge the gap between increasingly complex engine technologies and the declining quality of available fuels.” Oil System Dialysis Fuel System Purge
  8. 8. What is it? The Fuel System Purge Machine is designed specifically to remove harmful deposits from an engine’s fuel delivery system. By applying our unique purge fluid whilst an engine is running, we are able to dissolve harmful contaminants and deposits from the vehicle’s fuel system, including the throttle body, fuel rail, injectors, valves and pistons, and carburetors. Fuel System Purge
  9. 9. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Firepower FP4000 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. Firepower FP4000
  10. 10. Fuel & Oil Conditioners <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 FP4000 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 FP4000 also stops bacteria from reforming, and increases fuel storage life. Water Contamination in Diesel Fuel

  13. 13. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Firepower FP10000 <ul><li>Firepower FP10000 is an ashless conditioner concentrate for use in heavy fuel oils specifically formulated to achieve the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I mprove d fuel stability </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improved fuel economy </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lower carbon formations </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Control water contamination </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dramatic improvement in the burning of waste oil </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Significantly reduced harmful exhaust emission s </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Firepower FP10000 Heavy fuel oil 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 heavy fuel oil 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>
  15. 15. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Firepower FP10000 – The Solution Firepower FP10000 has been formulated for optimum water and bacteria control . Firepower FP10000 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 harmful exhaust emissions.
  16. 16. Fuel & Oil Conditioners <ul><li>Firepower FP10000 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 FP10000 will: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improve fuel economy due to better fuel atomisation and combustion catalyst </li></ul></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>Firepower FP10000 – The Solution

  18. 18. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Diesel fuel contains paraffin wax, which is present as a result of the refining process. When the air temperature drops to approximately 3 degrees Celsius or less, the wax molecules bond together to restrict and in severe cases stop the fuel from flowing altogether. An engine with fuel in this condition will experience the following problems: <ul><li>May fail to start </li></ul><ul><li>Will experience severe hesitation </li></ul><ul><li>Rough engine idling </li></ul><ul><li>Produce excessive smoke </li></ul><ul><li>Poor fuel economy </li></ul>Firepower Alpine
  19. 19. Fuel & Oil Conditioners Firepower Alpine – The Solution Alpine works by stopping the wax molecules from binding together to restrict the fuel flow. Alpine also contains cleaning agents that will help to do the following: <ul><li>Neutralize acids in aged or high sulphur fuel </li></ul><ul><li>Disperse moisture in fuel and fuel lines </li></ul><ul><li>Prevent fuel system deposits </li></ul>
  20. 20. How Engine Oil is Affected Research shows that approximately 10% of oil remains in the engine after the oil is drained. This oil includes wear metals, silica, soot, acids of combustion and water. These contaminants reduce the effectiveness of the lubrication system leading to increased wear, reduced engine life, reduced engine performance and increased service costs. In extreme cases, engine damage can occur. Oil System Dialysis Oil filler cap Rocker arm Return oil way to sump Piston Connecting rod Big-end bearing Main bearings Engine oil Sump Sump filter Main oil filter Oil pump Main oil gallery Delivery oil way to cylinder head
  21. 21. How does it work ? The Oil System Dialysis cleans all parts of the engine that are lubricated with oil, including the sump, bearings and hydraulic lifters. The machine controls the flow of a specially formulated oil, made by Shell, through the engine whilst the engine is running. This oil contains agents to clean out contaminants from the engine. This oil is then continuously passed through our unique 3 stage filtration process, removing all traces of these contaminants down to 5 microns in size, which is smaller than the diameter of a human hair ! When this process is complete, the engine is restored to a “like new” condition, with the contaminants filtered and removed. Oil System Dialysis
