Vanadium and Sodium corrosion inhibitor. For all kind of thermal machinery and all kind of fuels with high Vanadium and Sodium content.

It neutralizes corrosion in high temperature zones, in gas turbines, large engines, boilers / steam generators, furnaces and dryers. Optimizes energy performance.

of the corrosion caused by the Vanadium and Sodium in the combustion chamber, the expansion turbines, exhaust valves, turbos and gas circuit. It prevents incrustations in the blades of the turbines, in the exhaust valves of the engines, in the turbos and in the heat exchangers of boilers and furnaces. Optimizes energy performance.

>95% Magnesium Organic salts of Fatty acids (molecules - trade secret) soluble in hydrocarbons.
Surface area of 1 gram of Magnesium molecules: ˜ 1,800 m2/g
<5% Organic solvents with flash point (O.C.) > 62ºC

Transparent liquid substance of yellow-amber tone that does not contain Magnesium solid particles but Magnesium molecules soluble in hydrocarbons.

During the combustion, the SOLUBLE Magnesium-molecules of the "rb bertomeu" beco Mg additive reacts with the Vanadium Oxides forming Magnesium Vanadates with high melting points (higher than 1,200ºC), solid and non-corrosive at the internal gas temperature in gas turbines, motors, boilers and furnaces. They are dragged by the flue gas stream without being deposited in the circuit. The V2O5 (Vanadium Pentoxide) is neutralized obtaining alkaline-earth vanadates with a high melting point, at the same time of combustion, which eliminates corrosion and scale and eliminates the appearance of low fusion point sodium vanadates. The binding action of heavy metals (Vanadium) also results in a reduction in the oxidation of SO2 to SO3 (formed from the fuel sulfur), by minimizing its catalytic action on the reaction; as a consequence, the formation of sodium sulphate (Na2SO4) that melts at 888ºC decreases.
