Modern low- and ultra-low sulfur fuels do a great job at reducing soot and emissions from combustion, but that improved environmental performance comes at a price.
Today’s diesel fuels destabilize quickly, offer poor lubricity, contain higher levels of moisture and are more susceptible to bacterial growth and filter plugging than yesterday’s higher sulfur diesel – and because sulfur is a lubricant, its absence can also contribute to premature injector and fuel pump wear.
As you might imagine, these problems are even more prevalent in a marine environment – which is why ValvTect created its line of Marine Premium Diesel.
Specially formulated for marine diesel engines – and to prevent problems caused by the reduction of sulfur content – ValvTect Marine Premium Diesel contains BioGuard™ biocide, plus a lubricity improver, water dispersant, corrosion inhibitor and fuel stabilizer. It requires no additional fuel additives to protect your engine, eliminating any risk of improper additive use while also saving time and money for you.
