Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant is a new fuel additive created specifically to improve the performance of ULSD in newer model vehicles equipped with high pressure fuel injectors. This is the latest addition to the impressive line Power Up of fuel additives. It complies with the federal low sulfur content requirements and does not exceed 15ppm. While traditional detergents may have historically been effective in combating injector deposits, these products are proving less feasible in modern heavy duty diesel engines and the treat rates required to have any impact are simply not effective. At the same time, the need to remove deposits in and around the injector valve seat and nozzle has become even more critical to overall performance.
Power Up Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant has been formulated to:
Clean and prevent deposits in high pressure fuel filters & injection systems
Inhibit fouling of ultra low sulfur diesel
Prevent fuel filter black sludge deposits
Maintain efficient filter performance
Restore lost horsepower
Reduce harmful exhaust emissions
Provide thermal & oxidative stability
Maximize optimum fuel economy
Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant is a highly innovative multifunctional middle distillate fuel additive that offers a number of important benefits to fleet operators. It prevents the formation of fuel soot by conditioning ULSD to withstand the extreme temperatures and high pressures of today’s fuel injection systems. It also cleans up existing deposits, returning injectors to “like new” condition within a short time period.
This new Power Up fuel additive not only maintains the thermal and oxidative stability of ULSD, it also prevents the formation of black sludge. This is a common problem which can escalate in high pressure engine units operating at high temperatures. Over time, contaminants from unburnt fuel and combustion soot build up to form a thick black sludge. This sludge ultimately affects performance.
As a result of using Black-Out, fuel filter plugging is reduced dramatically. Field tests suggest the filter lifecycle is extended from between 8,000 and 20,000km to approximately 48,000km. It is estimated that savings on fuel filters alone could cover the cost of using Black-Out Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant.
With injectors cleaned and maintained, operators can expect fewer injector failures and optimum combustion at all times. this makes for a more efficient engine which benefits from restored power, reduced emissions and better fuel economy.
FUEL FILTER PLUGGING
The formation of black soot-like deposits in the fuel filter is caused by these extreme high temperatures and pressures. Under these conditions, the ULSD is then thermally decomposed in the injection system. Field tests show that filters are often blocked with the resulting black deposits and need replacing after just 16,000 to 20,000km of operation.
Fleet Trial - Same make and model trucks, same fuel, same work load. The only difference is Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant.
24,000 km, no additive 48,000 km with Black-Out™
For effective clean-up of problematic fuel system sludging, apply Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant at a 1:1500 ratio (1L treats 1,500 litres of diesel fuel). To ensure optimum fuel system performance and protection, use Black-Out™ in combination with Gen49D™ diesel fuel system conditioner. Black-Out™ performs the clean-up and Gen49D™ provides the fuel system maintenance and performance enhancement.
Black-Out™ Diesel Fuel System Antifoulant is available in the following convenient sizes:
