Application

HiTEC® 4103 is a cost effective cetane improver additive used to raise the cetane number of both petrodiesel and biodiesel fuels. It lowers exhaust emissions, especially NOx, from diesel engines. HiTEC® 4103 allows a refinery to increase it's profitability by upgrading, for example, FCC light cycle oils from cutter stock to diesel fuel valves.

Key Performance Benefits

  • Optimizes refinery profitability
  • Increases the proportion of the crude barrel available for use in the diesel pool
  • Improves the ignition quality to give reduced noise, reduced emissions, better cold startability and improved fuel economy
  • May be combined with additive packages to upgrade regular diesel to premium quality

Recommended Dosage

The recommended dosage for HiTEC® 4103 will depend on the cetane number and sulfur content of the base fuel and the cetane number desired for the finished fuel. Typical treat rates are from 500 – 5000 ppm. Please contact your Afton Chemical representative for specific recommendations.
