Key Performance Benefits
The low temperature treatment of middle distillates can be challenging due to the varied qualities of fuel currently seen on the market. HiTEC® 4598 additive will effectively lower the Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) and the pour point of treated fuels. HiTEC® 4598 cold flow improver is formulated to give optimum performance to allow you consistently and economically meet your target specification.
HiTEC® 4598 will deliver the following benefits:
- Depressing the pour point leading to reduced blockage in pipes and storage vessels
- Modification of wax crystals allowing improved flow through filters
- Improved low temperature operability by lowering the CFPP of treated fuel
HiTEC® 4598 additive is used to allow fuel manufacturers to cost effectively meet CFPP & Pour point specifications. The CFPP specification dominates the market and the CFPP level varies by geographic region. Treat-rate my vary depending on base fuel. However, the treat-rate should be in the range of 100 to 500 ppmv. For secondary treatment we would recommend a treat-rate of 500 ppmv.
Max Handling Temp: 60˚C
Shelf Life: 48 months at ambient temperature in closed containers
HiTEC® 4598 additive should be stored at a temperature of 50˚C. HiTEC® 4598 additive should be blended with the fuel at a temperature >10˚C above the cloud point of the fuel.
