ValvTect manufactures the industries most effective additive system to prevent winter diesel fuel problems such as filter plugging caused by fuel gelling and icing. ValvTect’s antigel formulas contain proprietary wax crystal modifiers, cold flow improvers, heavy wax modifiers, and wax anti-settling properties. This prevents formation of large wax crystals that plug filters and shut engines down.
All Diesel Guard winter grade formulas also include a non-alcohol jet fuel deicer/water dispersant which lowers the freeze point of entrained water to prevent the formation of ice crystals. The dispersant safely removes a controlled amount of moisture from tanks and lines to prevent water build-up and icing in the fuel system.
This advanced system of antigel and deicer components provides superior improvement of cold temperature operability on a wide range of today’s hard to treat low and high sulfur distillate fuels. Diesel Guard antigel/deicer can provide improved cold temperature operability equaling up to a 70% blend of No.1 (Kerosene). Proper use of Diesel Guard antigel/deicer additives can:
Reduce the cold filter plug point up to 35 degrees.
Reduce the pour point as low as -50 degrees or more.
Reduce the freeze point of water to as low as -50 degrees F.
