"rb bertomeu" beco F2/A                      Since April 1996      

Dispersant and Vanadium and Sodium Corrosion Inhibitor

The rb bertomeu beco F2/A additive, is formulated specifically to be used in boilers/steam generators (SG) and furnaces which consume heavy fuel oil or crude oil.

Effects: Asphaltenes, carbons and sludge dispersant. Inhibitor of incrustations and Vanadium and Sodium corrosion. Improves combustion and reduces the emission of unburnt matter. It saves fuel. Decants water. Reduces sludge and keeps the filters clean. Prevents coal build-up on the burner. Reduces corrosion and incrustation in the boiler’s core and heat exchangers. It keeps clean the boiler pipes and maintains the exchange coefficient, optimizing energy efficiency. It includes biocides.

PRESENTATION :   200-liters metal drums on pallet of 4 x 200 liters.
                            50-litres metal drums on pallet of 9 x 50 liters.  

The formulation of the rb bertomeu beco F2/A additive is composed of:


a) 12-16% Soluble Magnesium carboxylate / Magnesium Organic salts of Fatty acids (molecules-trade secret) soluble in    hydrocarbons.   During   the   combustion,   the SOLUBLE   Magnesium-molecules   of the additive “rb bertomeu” beco F2/A reacts with the Vanadium oxide and forms Magnesium Vanadate of high melting point (more than 1,200ºC), which is solid and non-corrosive at the furnace or boiler combustion chamber's internal temperature, and which is carried away by the combustion gas stream without being deposited in the circuit. The V2O5 is neutralized (vanadium pentoxide) obtaining alkaline-earth vanadates of high fusion point, at the same moment of combustion, which elimiantes the corrosion due to the Vanadium pentoxide and eliminates the appearance of sodium vanadates below fusion point, neutralizing the compatations and corrosion in the overheaters and economizers of the boiler or furnace.
The action of fixing heavy metals (Vanadium), is also translated into a decrease in the oxidation from SO2 to SO3 (formed from the fuel oil’s Sulphur) because the catalytic action over the reaction is minimized; as a consequence, the formation of Sodium sulfate is reduced (Na2SO2) that melts at 888 ºC and also diminishes the appearance of Sulphuric acid condensation when the combustion gases cool down and, along with it, cold corrosion.

b) Stabilisers, which detain the ageing and normal degradation of the fuel oil, and avoid the increase in sediments by increasing the size of the small particles in suspension.

c)  De-emulsioners, which accelerate the speed of separation of the water, to the bottom of the storage tank, for ease of removal.

d) Dispersants, which  cause the uniform separation of particles of asphalts, coals and other solids which the heavy fuel oil contains, minimising sludge formation.

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

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

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

h) Surfactants, which  reduce the surface tension of the fuel oil and achieve better pulverisation (a fundamental factor to achieve good combustion).

i)  Organic Solvents , which  serve as excipients to the formulation.


The injection must take place at the inlet pipeline to the storage tank simultaneously when the fuel oil storage tank is filled up, in order to obtain a good homogeneous solution of the additive in the fuel. However, if necessary, it can also be injected into the entry pipeline to the sedimentation or daily tank but, in this case, dispersants will have less time to act.


The dose is variable depending on the Vanadium and Sodium content in the fuel oil or crude oil.
