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
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.
