FUEL ADDITIVES

Refineries today face many challenges.  One challenge is to remain profitable while producing high-quality products and meeting demand on a tight schedule. Often, refiners must decide how to maximize one product at the expense of another to maintain acceptable refining margins.

Chemical additives play an important role in offering refiners maximum flexibility. In fact, modern refineries are finding the use of additives inevitable. Additives can also provide new options in a refinery’s capital investment decisions. An expensive hardware upgrade may be deferred if there is an alternative temporary chemical solution.

Cestoil Chemical excels at working with refineries to solve their most complex problems. We understand the fuels market and the needs of each refinery. Our services are not limited to solving fuel quality problems. We also offer specific recommendations for refinery profit enhancements through the use of our fuel additives.

Antistatic Agents

Antistatic Agents

Electrostatic build-up due to a slow dissipation of charges created by friction is very dangerous in fuels. The aviation industry takes a serious on this and a minimum conductivity is now included in all jet fuel specifications. This minimum value can be met with the use of an anti-static agent.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants

Use of antioxidants is often more cost-effective. Cestoil Chemical offers a variety of antioxidants for use as free radical scavengers in fuels. We can also tailor products for specific applications.

Corrosion Inhibitors

Corrosion Inhibitors

The presence of sulfide can cause another form of corrosion with copper and its alloys. Cestoil Chemical’s copper strip corrosion inhibitor can be used to prevent corrosion and protect various engine parts made from alloys containing copper.

Cetane Number Improvers

Cetane Number Improvers

Today’s modern high-pressure diesel engines require a higher cetane number. Refineries with insufficient means to produce fuel with a high cetane number would find the use of cetane number improver convenient and profitable. Cestoil Chemical offers the most cost-effective packages of Cetane Number Improver based on 2-Ethylhexyl nitrate and peroxide chemistry in the marketplace.

Cold Flow Improvers / WASA

Cold flow improver improves handling characteristics of fuels by reducing Pour Point and CFPP. WASA (wax anti-settling aids) will prevent wax from settling down in fuel.

Copper Strip Corrosion Inhibitors

The presence of sulfide can cause another form of corrosion with copper and its alloys. Cestoil Chemical’s copper strip corrosion inhibitor can be used to prevent corrosion and protect various engine parts made from alloys containing copper.

CT Magnesium Additives

Magnesium and other metal-based products to reduce high-temperature corrosion in gas turbines and boilers and to reduce particulate or acidic emissions.

null

Diesel Stabilizers

Demand for diesel and replacement of lighter crude by heavier crude have set the investment path towards crackers. The instability of diesel is a complicated issue. It is not only due to olefins, but to the presence of water-, nitrogen-, and oxygen-containing compounds. Cestoil has long experience working with refineries to help them stabilize diesel.

null

Dehazers

Water may contaminate fuels during production, transportation, and storage. Water in the fuel causes a hazy product. The presence of water may cause problems, such as corrosion, bacteria growth and icing. Cestoil supplies dehazers that are effective at low dosage. Dehazers can also be formulated with other additives to provide multi-functional effects.

Dyes and Markers

Cestoil provides a wide range of dyes and markers to aid in fuel grade identification.

null

Friction Modifiers

Friction Modifiers, also called boundary lubricant additives, are polar molecules that minimize the light surface contacts between two surfaces of equipment. By reducing the frictional losses, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced significantly.

null

H2S/Mercaptan Scavengers

Cestoil’s H2S scavenger removes hydrogen sulfide and some mercaptan from the hydrocarbon streams. The formulation reacts with H2S to form a stable and water-soluble product which can later be withdrawn from the system.

null

Lubricity Improvers

Cestoil has long been involved with supplying lubricity improvers to refineries. We provide both acid and ester types of lubricity improvers that form a film between the two surfaces.

null

Metal Passivators

Passivators deactivate metal surfaces after cleaning. Typical applications include fractionation columns and reboilers. Contact Cestoil’s technical service department for further information about metal passivators and their proper application.

Octane Boosters

Octane number is a key yardstick for measuring gasoline performance, in terms of its knocking tendency. Higher octane number fuel has less knocking tendency. For this reason, high-octane gasoline is more preferred.
