Firepower romania presentation

  1. 1. Corporate Presentation
  2. 2. Company Background <ul><li>Firepower is a group of companies that own the intellectual property to and manufacture a range of hydrocarbon based fuel conditioners and equipment that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enhance engine or boiler performance for petrol, diesel and heavy fuel oil users </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Significantly reduce harmful emissions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce maintenance costs and increase equipment life </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All Firepower products are manufactured to ISO9001 standards and have been comprehensively tested by leading independent testing institutes and major companies. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>“ To save money for our customers whilst significantly reducing harmful emissions by providing technology that makes fuel burn better. ” </li></ul>Our Mission
  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. <ul><li>The benefits of using Firepower FP4000 can be summarised as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improved fuel economy due to better fuel atomisation and combustion catalyst </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduced maintenance and equipment downtime </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Water controlled in fuel, preventing bacterial growth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduced harmful exhaust emissions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Note: FP4000 is registered with NATO. ( NSN 9150 66 14 16311 ) </li></ul>Fuel & Oil Conditioners FP4000 - Summary of Benefits
  10. 10. 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><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>Major improvement in the burning of waste oil </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Significantly reduced harmful emission s </li></ul></ul>

  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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
  14. 14. <ul><li>An Oil System Dialysis will : </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improve performance </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improve fuel economy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Allow smoother running </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Remove wear metal </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Prolong the life of your engine </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce exhaust emissions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Save maintenance costs </li></ul></ul></ul>What are the benefits?

  17. 18. Kharkov State Academy of Railway Transport Professor Gennadiy B Rozenblit Doctor of Technical Sciences and Mechanics Ukraine: - Professor Rozenblit conducted an extensive test of the Firepower product over a extended trial period Summary of results: Fuel savings 9% Injector life increased 13 times Emissions reduced 30 – 50% Reduced maintenance on Valves, Exhaust manifolds and piston rings Automobile Association of Singapore Mr Gerrard Ee (President) Quote: “ Because the results of the test points at the potential for reducing the emission of carbon poisonous gases and this is something all Singaporeans should be interested to look at. Speaking for the Association’s point of view, if enough people use the product, hopefully we can get a clean environment” Queens University, Belfast, United Kingdom Dr Roy Douglas Quote: “ With my background in the automotive industry, I’ve come across many products that have claimed great things and have never done it and therefore I thought this might just be another one, but there is definitely a real and measurable effect.” Global Scientific Research
  18. 19. Research and Development “ It is our aim to bridge the gap between increasingly complex engine technologies and the declining quality of available fuels.”
  19. 20. Product Safety Firepower products have been safely used for many years. The products do not contain any harsh chemicals that can damage an engine or expensive piece of equipment. The base materials for our fuel conditioning products are hydrocarbons which are fully compatible with the fuel, and full training is provided to ensure the correct application of the products in the field . Firepower carries a AUD$20 million insurance policy in the unlikely event that any damage is caused to equipment by the use of Firepower products. To date, we have not had a claim. Insurance
