Arctic Shield + Ultra Low Sulfur Concentrate is a highly concentrated ashless ultra low sulfur compliant diesel fuel additive that is specifically formulated to provide Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel maximum cold temperature protection against fuel gelling, waxing and fuel line freeze-up. Arctic Shield + Ultra Low Sulfur Concentrate can be used in all types of diesel fuel including low sulfur diesel fuel and biodiesel blends.
PROTECTION AGAINST MOISTURE CONTAMINATION
Arctic Shield + Ultra Low Sulfur Concentrate contains a non-alcohol jet fuel deicer/water dispersant. This non-alcohol jet fuel deicer/water dispersant eliminates the problems associated with entrained and/or dissolved water present in the fuel by dispersing the water into tiny droplets. These tiny droplets are suspended in the fuel so they can be carried with the fuel in controlled amounts through the fuel filters, fuel lines, and into the combustion chamber to be burned with the fuel. By having any remaining water dispersed and suspended in the fuel, Arctic Shield + Ultra Low Sulfur Concentrate eliminates the formation of ice crystals that can block fuel lines and plug fuel filters and prevents the formation of stable fuel-water emulsions.
ULTRA LOW SULFUR DIESEL FUEL CHANGES
Changes in the refining process of middle distillates to make Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel have resulted in chemical changes that can significantly impact the low temperature operability of the Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel. These chemical changes have resulted in an increase in the amount of total wax (n-paraffins) and wax-to-wax ratios present in the fuel. This results in the wax particles in Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel being more concentrated and harder to disperse. As the temperature of the Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel drops these increased amounts of wax molecules can begin to rapidly precipitate out of the fuel and form either large flat crystals or irregular crystals that can quickly plug fuel lines and filters.
