more information on the saving concepts
marked in point (2),
rb bertomeu S.L. , which covers the important points related to the
additive treatment of the fuel oil and
the benefits obtained, however, we offer brief details below:
a) The Fuel additive "rb
bertomeu" beco F1/ASF
or beco DC must
be added to the fuel storage tank so that the active agents that the additive contains have
sufficient time to work and all the expected economic benefits can be
b) The main actions of
the additive are
-De-emulsion and decantation of the water in the Fuel.
-Disintegration and maintaining in suspension of heavy hydrocarbons.
-Avoidance of ageing and sludge formation by polymerisation.
-Cleaning of the Fuel circuits.
-Reduction of the opening frequency of the Fuel oil purifier.
-Improved combustion, efficiency and reduction of unburned fuel.
-Avoidance of the formation of liquid vanadiums, which are corrosive , and
reduction of corrosion in valves and turbos.
-Minimisation of the oxidation of S02
to S03 , which reduces the corrosion in cold zones of the exhaust gas circuit.
-Reduction of residual deposits in the exhaust gas circuit, especially in
the pipes of steam boilers associated with these plants.
The economic benefits derived from these actions are mainly appraised in point 2-
of this study:
Reduction of Fuel-oil sludge volume and consequent handling costs
per Tm of fuel.
Reduction of fuel consumption per
Saving in material and maintenance of exhaust valves and turbos.
life of the exhaust valves , which is normally from 12,000 to
depending on the type of motor, is practically doubled.
Increased electrical production because of increased service factor
due to the
the reduction of stoppages for breakdowns and cleaning, and a
in the TBO of between 50% and 100%.
Improvement of boiler efficiency preserving the rate of heat
transmission due to the
reduction of encrustation in pipes.
The additive "rb
bertomeu" beco F1/ASF, is APPROVED by the engine manufacturer
DEUTZ - Engines . The
approval letter was obtained after several years of exhaustive controls in
A large number of clients , among them some of the most important
Cogeneration Plants in Spain, certify the quality of the additive, and the
benefits acquired, in their Reference Letters. Direct contact with the companies that endorse us can
help to clear up doubts.
bertomeu S.L., with
a desire to offer the best and most responsible service, provides a LETTER
OF GUARANTEE with all the supply contracts of the additive to
power plants, in which we
take responsibility for any hypothetical damage that the use of the
additive could cause in the motor. To this end, we have taken out a civil
liability insurance policy.
