E3 PLUS nanotechnology for fuel
E3 PLUS can increase vehicle MPG/KPL while reducing fleet fuel cost and emissions output.
In engines, an overall reduction in fuel combusted, directly results in fleet fuel cost savings and lower emitted CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and also reduces other emissions such as HC (Hydrocarbons), CO (Carbon monoxide) and Particulate Matter (soot) output. This can also help to clear and reduce carbon build up in engines, helping to reduce overall fleet maintenance costs.
All of these gases and contaminates are harmful to our health and quality of life, we breathe them in daily. Pollution levels in over 40 towns and cities across the UK breach global safety limits and contribute to some 40,000 premature deaths and six million sick days a year in the UK according to a major report in ‘The Lancet’ medical journal.
They also contribute to Global warming and climate change. Therefore, cutting fleet fuel emissions by any and all means is absolutely critical for both our planet and our health We discuss these matters in the ‘News’ section.
So why E3 PLUS?
E3 PLUS works at the nanoscopic level. To put that into perspective, one nanometer is a billionth of a metre in size. Comparatively, that is the same scale as one toy marble in relation to planet earth. There are 25.4 million nanometers to one inch (1 millimetre = 1 million nanometres). E3 PLUS safely separates, restructures and ionises fuel molecules at this atomic level at a scale between 1 and 100 ‘toy marbles’.
It is a scientific fact, that all hydrocarbon fuels (Diesel, Petrol etc.) start to degrade from the moment fuel refining from crude oil is finished. This is a natural phenomenon that happens over a short time, because refined fuel will always progressively return to its’ original state. Visually, this can be seen by colour and clarity changes, degrading from clear on to black. It is for this reason, fuel held in medium to long term storage requires fuel cleaning (or ‘polishing’ as it’s commonly called) on a regular basis – adding further to overall operational costs.
E3 PLUS nanotechnology improves the way fuel combusts in the engine and can equate to a fuel saving of 4+% although results can be closer to 10%.
This is achieved because E3 PLUS nanotechnology both revives degraded fuel to a clean condition and prevents clean and cleaned fuel from degrading. It returns to – and maintains fuel in – a freshly refined condition conforming to viscosity and filterability specifications in EU standards EN590 (Diesel) and EN14214 (Biodiesel). This includes restoring and maintaining calorific and cetane values set out in those standards. E3 PLUS therefore eliminates the need for fuel cleaning (polishing).
Because fuel is often ‘held’ by manufacturers or distributors after refining and before delivery, for stock flow, price and demand fluctuation reasons, one can never be sure just exactly how old fuel is upon purchase – we all expect it to be ‘new and fresh’ at the pump, but the sad fact is, most of it isn’t. Worse still, imported fuel could have been at sea for as long as 3 months before even landing.
Over time, as the fuel degrades, it thickens and becomes more and more difficult to combust. Given long enough, the fuel won’t combust in the engine at all and eventually, it will turn into a thick black sludge which settles on the bottom of the fuel tank.
This thickening is generally called agglomeration causing increased viscosity and density of the fuel, reducing filterability and slowing fuel flow which can clog filters and restrict fuel supply to the engine.
Agglomeration binds small particles into larger clumps that become harder to filter and combust. The older the fuel is, the more agglomeration, viscosity and density has increased and so the greater the problem. Fuels in the process of agglomeration combust slower and partially, lowering engine performance and MPG. It wastes precious fuel and increases emissions.
Microbial activity is commonly present in fuel and/or fuel tanks. Microbes consume energy from the fuel further reducing combustibility. Higher levels of sulphur in the fuel historically controlled this problem, but with the introduction of low sulphur content regulations in diesel fuels (Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel- ULSD) for environmental considerations – and the introduction of Biofuel to the blend (5% minimum) – microbial fuel degradation is accelerated and is now a bigger and more common problem than ever before.
Accumulatively, this can add up to a potential loss up to 14% energy content/calorific value within 3 months from refining. This loss rises as time progresses. Calorific loss has a direct translation to vehicle fuel economy.
Any hydrocarbon fuelled engine that is put into store or on permanent standby – may not start up after being laid up for months on end. Degraded fuel will most likely be the reason.
When fuel is added to the tank, it can be tainted by existing sullied fuel and conditions already in the tank. Maximum performance and value of the introduced fuel is immediately devalued – and so the cycle continues.
Increased carbon deposits (soot) in the combustion chamber are caused by incomplete combustion of degraded fuel. This reduces fuel flow and combustion efficiency even more.
All of this means we have to push further down on the throttle to achieve the power we demand from our fuel and of course as we all know, the more the throttle is applied, the higher the fuel consumption, bringing about reduced MPG and directly causing yet more smoke and emissions output.
Freshly refined or E3 PLUS regenerated hydrocarbon fuels however, flow smoother, combust more quickly and completely, yielding more power, therefore needing less throttle depression. This produces lower fuel consumption and resulting emissions, maximising MPG and power output.
E3 PLUS is a low cost solution providing a unique opportunity for significant fuel cost savings to the fleet operator. E3 PLUS cost varies according to fleet circumstances and requirements. Typical return on investment per vehicle however, is within 12 months.
Both E3 PLUS technology and products are harmless to humans, animals and the environment, and are guaranteed to be completely safe to use with both hydrocarbon fuels and engines.
