HiTEC® 3000 fuel additive utilises Afton’s patented mmt® octane improver to allow refiners to optimise production by reducing energy consumption and refinery emissions whilst maintaining gasoline octane quality.
Use of HiTEC® 3000 can therefore also increase gasoline pool octane quality without increased energy consumption, providing the most cost effective means to meeting specification, and marketing, octane quality requirements.
Improved Economics - Use of mmt® in very small amounts (one drop per litre gasoline) increases octane in an environmentally friendly and cost effective manner, allowing for optimum gasoline blending and produc- tion, increased refinery flexibility and reduced need for component storage
Reduced Energy Consumption - Allows refiners to lower unit operation severity, resulting in lower crude consumption, extension of gasoline pool and improved refinery efficiency
Sustainable Environment - Reduces emissions of greenhouse gases at the refinery and allows cleaner burning fuel formulations
Optimal Performance - Provides wear protection for older vehicles and maintains modern vehicle emissions systems at optimum performance.
Globally Approved - Afton’s HiTEC® 3000 (mmt®) is the only metallic gasoline additive fully tested, and approved by the US EPA under the US Clean Air Act*. mmt® is also registered under the EU REACH legislation.
*US Clean Air Act Section 211(f).
Typical treat rates can be up to 18 mg Mn/litre. Please contact Afton Chemical for further details.
