TECO Fot Combustion Catalyset
Acts as a combustion improver, carbon catalyst, ash modifier and smoke suppressant
for diesel engines burning heavy fuel oils and for boilers.
Advantages & Benefits:
Dosage point location varies depending on engine/boiler fuel system layout. The most efficient and
economical method is obtained with a metering pump, dosing the additive into the suction side of the
booster pump (for diesel engines) or into the burner feed line (for boilers). Alternatively the additive
may be dosed directly to the day tank prior to refilling or directly to the bunker tanks.
Dosage rates depend on engine characteristics, operating conditions and quality of fuel oil.
A CCAI (Calculated Carbon Aromaticity Index) number exceeding 840 indicates a poor fuel quality,
which justifies the use of a chemical fuel oil treatment to counteract the effects hereof. Typical dosage
rates varying between 1 to 2 l for every 2000 l of fuel oil may be necessary.
As a general guide, initial dosage recommendation is 1 l of TECO Fot Combustion Catalyst for
4500 l of heavy fuel oil, but this depends on the Micro Carbon Residue (MCR). We recommend to test
the fuel and follow the below dosage chart.
For correct fuel oil treatment we suggest a fuel oil analyses. This can be done using the TECO Chemicals Fuel Oil Test Kit.
