AFT-15 Fuel & Sludge Conditioner
AFT-15 Fuel & Sludge Conditioner - Fuel Care - Amergy
AFT-15 FUEL & SLUDGE CONDITIONER is a highly effective blend of dispersants, stabilizers, hydrocarbon solvents and sludge dissolving agent. AFT-15 is designed to overcome the problems in the pre-combustion stage in diesel and steam propulsion plants burning residual fuels. AFT-15 helps to prevent sludge buildup and deposits in heaters, filters, strainers, burners and maximize bunker yields.
PROBLEMS IN THE PRE-COMBUSTION STAGE
SLUDGE AND SEDIMENTS: AFT-15 reduces the growth and polymerization of asphaltenes. It reduces filter clogging and carbonization of burner tips and improve atomization. Soluble sludge and sediments will be removed by the detergents present in this Fuel & Sludge Conditioner.
WATER IN OIL : Strong emulsifying agents release the water from the oil and improves the performance of the purifier.
CORROSION OF THE FUEL SYSTEM : Due to its alkaline nature, AFT-15 neutralizes the acids in the oils and reduces corrosion attacks on the total fuel system.
BACTERIOLOGICAL ATTACKS : Bacteriological attacks may occur in water pockets in the fuel. This may result in clogging of filters and blockage of the total fuel system. AFT-15 Fuel & Sludge Conditioner demulsifies the eater/oils emulsions, and this problem is thereby avoided.
A dosage of 1 : 4000 is recommended under normal operating conditions. In case of severe contamination, the dosage should be increased to 1 : 1000.
WHERE TO DOSE : AFT-15 should be dosed into the bunker tank before bunkering. Dose through the sounding tube or the fill pipe.
CLEANING OF FUEL-OIL PRE-HEATERS : Circulate AFT-15 through the cleaning plugs provided for this purpose.
CLEANING BURNER TIPS : Soak tips in the undiluted liquid and flush.
CLEANING FUEL FILTERS : Soak filter in the undiluted liquid and flush.
CLEANING LUBE-OIL COOLERS : Due to its high wax and carbon dissolving properties, AFT-15 is very suited for cleaning lube oil coolers. The liquid should be used undiluted in accordance with the manufacturers' cleaning instructions.
