Key Performance Benefits

HiTEC® 580 is an industry recognised corrosion inhibitor and lubricity improver designed and approved for use in jet fuel, pipeline applications and stationary gas turbines.

Jet fuel

  • Wide military approval
  • Approved for DEF STAN 91-91 use and listed in QPL 68-251
  • Commercial aircraft engine approvals including General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce & Allison
  • More detailed approval list available on request


  • Suitable in pipelines designed for the transportation of light petroleum products
  • Minimises corrosion and formation of corrosion products
  • Minimises risk of pipeline filter and pump blockages due to products of corrosion
  • Good low temperature properties and relatively high flash point permitting ease and safety of application

Stationary gas turbine

  • Provides lubricity protection for light distillate
  • Protects against catastrophic failure caused by excessive wear
  • Reduces corrosion

Recommended Dosage

HiTEC® 580 additive is approved for jet fuel specifications at a minimum treat-rate of 15mg/l and a maximum of 23mg/l.

The treat-rate for HiTEC® 580 additive as a corrosion inhibitor will vary based upon its use. When used in a pipeline as a first fill an initial treat-rate 22.5 g/m3 is recommended, followed by continuous treatment at a dosage of 6–9 g/m3.

HiTEC® 580 additive should be used in stationary gas turbines at a treat-rate of 150µl/l to provide maximum protection.
