PentoMag® for Diesel has been developed with three goals in mind:
- Protect the diesel engine and turbo loader from corrosion and deposits
- Reduce emission
- Reduce fuel consumption
PentoMag® for Diesel is the result of a deep cooperation with one of our clients, where this additive has been developed custom designed for the clients need.
PentoMag® for Diesel is more than a corrosion inhibitor.
It´s a balanced blend of
PentoMag® for Diesel increases the overall efficiency of diesel engines by around 5%.
This may sound unbelievable, but we can achieve this goal by optimizing not only the engine itself, but most of all the fuel oil treatment station.
Reduce sludge from storage tanks and burn it with the help of the combustion improver
Neutralize corrosion in turbo and recovery boiler
Dispersing of asphaltenes
Reducing the amount of sludge disposed
The additive includes sludge dispersing solvents and water emulsifiers
Increasing the net calorific value
PentoMag® 4400 is best dosed on the filling line of the day tank or storage tank by means of a simple dosing pump.
Disaggregate heavy fractions of the fuel oil to improve volatilization.
In the storage tank, the heavy asphaltene chains are broken up, reducing the formation of sludge and sedimentation in the tank.
Increasing the net calorific value
As shown in the pictures above, a more stable fuel means that less fuel is absorbed in the separator, while maintaining the function of the separator to absorb sediments and solids.
1.) It reduces the total fuel oil consumption. Typically 10% of the fuel is absorbed in the separators, whereof approx. half of it can easily be used as proper fuel. This fuel oil saving is considerable and typically pays the whole fuel oil treatment and more!
2.) The volume of sludge produced is reduced by about 50%. This is a further cost reduction to the plant and a heavy reduction in handling and processing of sludge.
Increase combustion surface and speed
The catalyst in PentoMag® 4400 evokes a reduction of the activation energy of the fuel.
- carbon burn out is more complete
- less oxygen needed
- producing less smoke and ash
- more efficiency reduces fuel consumption
PentoMag® 4400 contains catalyst that reduce the activation energy required for combustion of the fuel. Atomized fuel will burn faster and the amount of unburned carbon in the emission is reduced by >50%. This reduces fouling in the diesel engine itself but also in the turbo charger and recovery boiler and creates a visible reduction of solid emission on the stack.
As the total dust load carried through the diesel engine is reduced, the time required for cleaning deposits is reduced as well.
Turbo charger efficiency is increased as fouling is reduced a lot and the remaining deposits can be removed without applying force, preventing damage to the blades.
Sodium, Vanadium and Sulfur compounds can form molten deposits in the engine, turbo and recovery boiler.
At low temperatures, sulfuric acid is formed, ash particles stick to cool surfaces and build up deposits.
PentoMag 4400 prevents formation of these deposits, extending lifetime of all parts.
The corrosion inhibitor is a magnesium compound, increasing the pH of the fly ash above 6.
As the SO3 and sulfuric acid produced during combustion are neutralized by PentoMag 4400, corrosion on cylinder walls is reduced. The TBN of the lubricating is affected as well, as less acidity is carried over to the lubricating oil, extending its lifetime.
Reducing fouling leads to
- reduced maintenance work
- extended lifetime
Pentol expects a fuel oil saving in the order of 2-5 %, depending on the fuel characteristics, combustion parameters and the general condition of the diesel engine.
