Diesel has been through many changes over the years and is now dry and unstable.
Here, Director Peter Weide explains the journey of diesel.
DieselAid B is a broad spectrum diesel biocide. DieselAid B prevents, or in higher doses, kills and eradicates bacteria, mould and yeast, also known as "Diesel Bug"
Available in 5 and 25 litre. Dose rate: Prevention 1 : 20,000 Eradication 1: 1,000
Designed with smaller fuel tanks in mind, DieselAid® LDB offers an all-round treatment designed to offset the adverse effects of ULSD. Formulated for operations where large volumes of commercially available EN590/Red Diesel is held in tanks but is not stored for long periods. The Broad Spectrum Biocide keeps yeast growth and Diesel-Bug at bay whilst the added lubricity ensures longevity of your engine and its components.
Available in 1, 5 and 25 and 200 litres. Dose Rate: 1 litre to 4,000 litres
DieselAid C is a diesel conditioning and stabilising additive. Oil Majors add stabiliser to keep fuel fresh for only a few months. Any fuel that is stored of not used for long periods should always be treated with a conditioner to ensure it remains ready for use.
Available in 5, 25 and 200 litre containers. Dose rate: 1 litre to 2000 litres of fuel
1. Lubricity: To replace the lubricity removed from the Ultra Low Sulphur Fuel
2. Deposit Control : To clean and prevent lacquering.
3. Fuel Stabiliser: Oil majors add stabiliser for a storage life of a few months after which the fuel quickly degrades.
4. Cetane Improver: Degrading fuel loses this all important cetane rating which ensures easy starting.
5. Demulsifier: Fuel is hygroscopic (biofuel 30 times more so), a demulsifier ensures water is separated from the fuel.
6. Biocide: To counter microbial attack in stored (standing) fuel from bacteria, moulds and yeasts.
“We have seen a reduction in fuel consumption, our vehicles are running smoother with no smoke".
Chief Engineer Antartica
"I have been using MarShip DieselAid products during the last fishing season. We had the diesel bug, it has been killed and has not returned. The engines are running smoother. We installed the dosage pump which makes the DieselAid cost efficient. I will not go to sea with out having the MarShip DieselAid on board."
Nick Fox - Owner FV Green Eye
"I have been using DieselAid LDB to prevent carbon build up on the injectors and to prevent diesel bug. Since using the additive, we have had no diesel bug and after 8000 hours on the engine, it's running smoothly"
