"rb bertomeu" beco Mg Since July 1996

Vanadium and Sodium Corrosion Inhibitor

Additive that must be added to the heavy fuel oil or crude oil to optimize combustion and reduce maintenance costs in gas turbines, large engines, boilers/steam generators (SG) and furnaces.

Effects: Inhibitor of incrustations and Vanadium and Sodium corrosion. Prevents incrustations and corrosions in the expansion/power turbines, in the engines’ exhaust valves and the heat exchangers at boilers and furnaces. Enhances the energy efficiency.

PRESENTATION :   200-liters metal drums on pallets 4x200 liters.


a) 65-100% 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 Mg 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 gas turbine, engine, boiler or furnace's internal temperature, and which is carried by the combustion gas stream without being deposited in the circuit. The V2O5 (vanadium pentoxide) is neutralized obtaining alkaline-earth vanadates of high fusion point, at the same moment of combustion, which neutralizes the corrosion due to the Vanadium pentoxide and prevents the formation of low melting point Sodium vanadates.
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 888ºC and also diminishes the appearance of Sulphuric acid condensation when the combustion gases cool down and, along with it, cold corrosion.


b) Organic  solvents, not catalogued as a dangerous product.



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



To the fuel oil feed pipeline through a metering pump.



Classified as a non-dangerous product for handling.



Classified as a non-dangerous product for the environment.



Classified as a non-dangerous product according to ADR, IMDG, ICAO/IATA transport regulations.



Manufactured by "rb bertomeu" in Spain (European Union)
