"rb bertomeu" beco DC-Ship               Since May 2001  

Dispersant and Vanadium and Sodium
Corrosion Inhibitor.
Special for marine engines.

Additive that must be added to the diesel oil in order to optimize the combustion and reduce maintenance costs in diesel engines, especially marine engines, although it can also be used in power generation engines or machinery.

Effects: Inhibitor of corrosion by vanadium and sodium. Saves fuel. Reduces pollution. Decants water. Reduces corrosion in valves and turbos. Reduces breakdowns. Includes biocides.

The product is a version, with ENHANCED ANTI-CORROSION EFFECT, of the beco DC additive, to be used marine diesel oil with more suphur, Vanadium, Sodium and sludge than the normal diesel oil B and C. The anticorrosion effect for valves and turbos has been enhanced and designed to obtain a result close to that of the beco F1/ASF additive.


PRESENTATION :         Metal drums of   50 litres. 
                                  Metal drums of   200 litres.



The additive is manufactured, in correct proportions, based on the following active agents:



a) 25-35% Soluble Magnesium carboxylate / Magnesium Organic salts of Fatty acids (molecules-trade secret) soluble in hydrocarbons.

b) Dispersants, which cause the uniform separation of the already existing particles of asphaltenes, carbons and other solids contained in the fuel oil, minimizing the formation of sludge.

c) De-emulsioners, which accelerate the speed of separation of the water to the bottom of the storage tank, or the diesel oil tank of the vehicle , where it can be eliminated easily by bleeding the tank , or by the fuel filter centrifugal of the installation.

d) Surfactants, which  reduce the surface tension of the fuel and achieve better pulverisation (a key factor to achieve good combustion in any type of engine that works with liquid fuel).

e)  Detergents, which  reduce the formation of carbonous deposits and flow loss in the injectors, and maintains an excellent pulverisation.

f) Biocides, which help maintaining the integrity of fuels, preventing the bacterial and fungal contamination in the storage tanks.

g) Corrosion inhibitors, which  protect the metal parts of the fuel circuits.

compounds which  they generate.

h) Organic solvents, which  work as an excipient to these active agents, in addition to collaborate actively in keeping the fuel circuits clean.


The addition must take place simultaneously with the unloading of the fuel in the intake pipe to the storage tank to achieve a good homogenization of the dissolution of the additive with the fuel. It may also be added, if necessary, in the intake pipe to the sedimentation or daily tank, but in this case, the dispersants will have less time to act.



Dosage: 0.3-0.5 L / 1,000 L of marine diesel oil.
