VALVES FT IS A LIQUID COMPOUND THAT CONTAINS CHEMICALS PROVEN EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING HARMFUL EFFECTS OF VANADIUM OXIDES AND SODIUM SALTS IN DIESEL ENGINES.
Adding VALVES FT to bunker fuel forms a complex that de-activates the vanadium and sodium common in heavy bunker fuels. The melting point of vanadium pentoxide is 675°C and sodium sulfate is 880°C. When VALVES FT is employed, the complexes formed with vanadium and sodium sulfate by the agents in VALVES FT melt at about 1100°C.
VALVES FT is used both in steam and motor vessels burning heavy fuel oils to improve combustion efficiency, reduce corrosion, disperse sludge and separate water. It is primarily formulated for use in diesel engines to prevent valves failure.
Dosage requirements depend on the nature and amount of impurities, but typical dosage rate is 1 lt. of VALVES FT per 4 tons of fuel oil, considering a normal vanadium of 100 PPM. To establish a more accurate and cost efficient dosage rate, it could be useful to test or know the vanadium content at each bunkering.
