Distillate fuels are to become an increasing part of the marine fuel pool in commercial shipping. Heavy fuel oils are decreasing in frequency due to worldwide fuel legislation changes (MARPOL). Sulphur content is being systematically reduced which has numerous implications for commercial operators - most notably differing fuel solubility and therefore stability. Many vessels will begin to suffer fuel storage and combustion problems as a result of these changes in the coming years. OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus provides complete engine and fuel system protection - eliminating risks and ensuring integrity of your vessel irrespective of bunker fuel quality.
OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus improves oxidation and thermal stability, allowing extended storage periods, protects against the potential presence of Biodiesel (FAME) and possible corrosion caused by high TAN fuels. OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus reduces fuel injector fouling, provides improved protection against corrosion, reduces risk of filter blocking, improves fuel lubricity, reduces wear risk of fuel pumps and fuel injection equipment. 'No-harm' tests show no adverse effects to fuels, lubricants, and OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus being fully compatible with engine and system materials.
Manually dose OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus direct to storage/bunker tanks – prior to, or during, every bunkering OR manually dose OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus direct to service tank – prior to or during every filling. Use a Fuelcare injection system to dose in line. The recommended dosage rate is 1kg OCTAMAR™ LI-5 Plus per 4 tonnes fuel.
