Key Performance Benefits
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.
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.
