TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant
Is a specialised liquid product, containing solvents, dispersants, emulsifiers and
surface-active agents combined with a combustion improver
Advantages & Benefits:
TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant is used in both steam and motor vessels burning residual fuel oils.
This new innovated treatment disperses sludge, breaks water in oil emulsions, making the residual fuel
more homogeneous for combustion improvement. This product also improves centrifugal separation,
atomization and injector spray pattern.
TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant is a new generation fuel oil treatment, with a unique
ability to disperse the sludge, keeping the pre-combustion system clean and maintenance free.
Directions for use
TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant should only be dosed into the bunker after a compatibility test has
been made and if the product is required. The compatibility test kit can be found with the other TECO
Chemicals test kits.
TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant should be dosed directly into the bunker tank prior to bunkering.
During the bunkering process, the product will self-disperse into the remaining fuel and the new bunker
Please note: We do not recommend dosing the TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant into the settling
tank. As this will take away the sludge dispersant properties from the bunker tank and will create an
extra cost for the ship owner, when dry-docking the vessel.
Dosage rates are best determined from the results of the fuel analysis. In this case we recommend using
the TECO Chemicals compatibility test kit.
* The fully compatible blends, with a sediment percentage of less than 0.05%, should not need treatment
for incompatibility. ASTM SPOT 1 may cause sludging if the fuels are not bunkered carefully. In this case
some treatment may be necessary, especially if problems such as corrosion or water content are
** We strongly advise to avoid using this fuel if possible.
TECO Fot Sludge Dispersant is available in steel drums of 25 liters.
