from original letter)
10th January 2001
letter is to certify that in our Co-generation Plant, equipped with
seven Deutz TBD 645 - L9 engines, we have been using "rb
bertomeu" additives for fuel oil since March 2000, to our full
satisfaction inasmuch as ostensible improvements have been observed with
respect to periods in which were not using the fuel oil with these
we began the additive treatment with “rb bertomeu” beco FI/ASF,
we have noted a drastic reduction in corrosion in turbos and exhaust
valves , obviously increasing the operating life of both elements
and maintenance intervals, with the consequent savings in parts and
maintenance, in addition to notably improving the operation of the
the use of the additive Beco F1/ASF in the fuel, the processes have
improved with respect to prior data in the following aspects:
Absence of corrosion in exhaust valves.
Increase in their useful
intervals, 25% up on prior data.
Improvements in the
incidence of breakdowns in exhaust valves and turbos.
Optimisation of fuel
consumption due to the better condition of injectors.
Optimisation of the
processes of fuel separation, decrease in generated residues.
In general, a better state
of cleanliness in the inlet conduits, valves and turbos.
