Multipurpose additive packages have been extensively used throughout the world for the past 30 years to improve the performance of motor fuels. The main objective which was put for this class of additives was prevention of carbon formation or its removal in the engine in the course of its operation. After all, it is no secret that regardless of emission class of the fuel, whether gasoline or diesel fuel, the hydrocarbons which are its constituent begin to coke when exposed to high temperatures. It results in intensive formation of carbon deposit on the surface of the spray jet and induction valve.
In its turn, carbon formation in the engine results in breach of factory settings and takes the operating mode out of the optimal range. This adversely affects the power specifications of the engine, the quality of the process of fuel combustion in the combustion chamber, increases the incomplete burning of fuel, which results in the increase of carbon formation in the combustion chamber and significantly reduced quality of the exhaust gases.
Thus, detergent additive packages are intended to solve the problem related to carbon formation inside the engine. But as far as the automotive industry is developing, the engine technologies are constantly being improved, new fuel injection systems are being developed, and new turbochargers appear which allow to get more power with less engine displacement. The engines with direct fuel injection are increasingly gaining popularity at present; in these engines petroleum injector atomizes the fuel directly into the combustion chamber. It should be considered that in this case, detergent additive packages which were effective in engines with injection of fuel into precombustion chamber, lose their efficiency factor, since the temperature regime of the carbon formation and the structural arrangement of carbon deposit itself changes.
The additive packages with friction modifier which is a thermally stable component and is designed to form a protective film between the cylinder and the walls of the combustion chamber, that according to the intended goal of the manufacturer should lead to expansion in engine power and decrease in fuel consumption, are finding ever-widening applications recently.
The above-described additives can be attributed to the traditional class of additives. Our offer - F2-21 eeFuel additive - can rightfully be called innovative, since it is based on the latest achievements in the field of nanotechnology. Our additive is based on nanostructured water encased in a shell of other synthetic components of the additive. The size of reactive particle of the additive is less than 5nm (!). The additive in the composition of the fuel is converted into stable nanoclusters which are uniformly distributed in the volume. These nanoclusters are physically, chemically and catalytically active depending on the stage of combustion cycle.
The Table clearly demonstrates the distinguishing features of innovative F2-21 eeFuel additive from the traditional class of additives.
Impact of F2-21 eeFuel additive on engine performance:
"F2-21 eeFuel" additive allows induing fuel with unique consumer properties that are beyond the scope of conventional additives, and will certainly have a positive effect on engine operation:
- Reduced specific fuel consumption
- Stabilized power
- Increased torque
- Increased engine reliability
- Improved environmental performance
Testing of "F2-21 eeFuel" additive
"F2-21 eeFuel" additive has successfully passed the bench tests at the Federal State Unitary Enterprise «Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engine Institute» of the Russian Federation
The findings are indicative of the effect of a stable fuel consumption reduction up to 6% and of carbon deposit removal from the inside of the combustion chamber.
