THE FUEL OIL TREATMENT REDUCES THE CONSUMPTION IN BIG ENGINES OPERATED WITH FUEL OIL.
DATA ON SAVINGS OBTAINED IN TWO COGENERATION PLANTS

 

Comparative data on fuel consumption have been compiled over a four-years long test in two cogeneration plants (COOSUR and OLCESA) with Diesel engines running on fuel oil (each plant with two Wärtsilä engines with an output of 10.5 MWhe each engine , that means 20.5 MWhe each plant). These data prove that specific consumption of fuel oil per KWhe produced has decreased by 3.1 % on average when treating Fuel Oil No. 1 with the additive “rb bertomeu” beco F1/ASF. Both plants were monitored over extensive periods:

 

   a) Period without additive treatment of the fuel oil :      18 months – 2 years

   b) Period with additive treatment”rb bertomeu” beco F1/ASF: 2 years and 6
       months

 

The figure of the reduction of 3.1% (6.4g of fuel per KWhe) corresponds to the average for both plants, whose figures for savings differ (1.61% and 4.60 % respectively). These differences, taken in combination with the different situations of prior adjustment of the installations and other collateral data (e.g., the quantity of fuel sludge generated, previous data on savings, etc.), enable us to identify and quantify the main causes of the average saving provided by the action of the additive:

 

     Saving due to reduced fuel oil sludge                        =   0.45%

     Saving due to improved combustion of the fuel oil    =   1.15%

     Overall saving due to other factors (*)                         =   1.50%

                                                                           TOTAL   =   3.10%

  

(*) Reduced wear on nozzles and injection pumps.

Reduced accumulated residues in turbo-compressors.
