- INNOVATIVE FUEL OIL TREATMENT PRODUCT FOR COMPLIANCE WITH NEW ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL MARITIME ORGANISATION
Emission concerns have led to the application of new regulations in Marine Fuel Oils. From 1st January 2015, ships travelling within 200 nautical miles of shore in North America, the Baltic, North seas and through the English Channel, must limit sulphur content into fuel oil to 0.1%.
Reducing the level of Sulphur compounds in the Marine Fuel Oil can reduce the ability of the oil to lubricate the injection system of the engine, causing the fuel injection pump to seize. Lower lubricity can significantly increase the wear of fuel pumps, valves and injector nozzles, over an extended period of use.
F.O.T. - ULS provides superior lubricity properties to the Ultra Low Sulphur Fuel Oils in order to avoid these eventualities. Furthermore, it prevents problems associated with the accumulations of injection deposits.
