"rb bertomeu” beco Mg Concentrated

Vanadium and Sodium corrosion inhibitor, composed of liquid Magnesium soluble in hydrocarbons
Descarga de PDF

The Complement* for the treatment of all fuels with high Vanadium and Sodium content. For all kinds of thermal machines.

Inhibitor of corrosion caused by Vanadium and Sodium in the combustion chamber, expansion turbines, exhaust valves, turbos and gas circuit. Prevents fouling on turbine blades, engine exhaust valves, turbos, and heat exchangers in boilers and furnaces. Optimizes energy efficiency.

During the combustion, the SOLUBLE molecular Magnesium of the "rb bertomeu" beco Mg Concentrated additive reacts with Vanadium Oxides, forming Magnesium Vanadates with high melting points (above 1,200 ºC), solid and non-corrosive at the gas internal temperature in gas turbines, engines, boilers and furnaces. They are carried along by the current of combustion gases without being deposited in the circuit. V2O5 (Vanadium pentoxide) is neutralized, obtaining alkaline-earth vanadates with a high melting point, at the same moment of combustion, thus eliminating corrosion and incrustations and also eliminating the appearance of sodium vanadates of low-point of fusion.

The action of fixing heavy metals (Vanadium) also translates into a decrease in the oxidation of SO2 to SO3 (formed from sulfur in fuel oil), by minimizing its catalytic action on the reaction. As a consequence, the formation of sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) which melts at 888ºC is reduced.
