Diesel Engine Damage From Incomplete Fuel Combustion
Renter Fuel Catalyst Saves More than Diesel and the Environment, Saves Diesel Engines
The capacity to take abuse is a fundamental requisite of construction and development machines and transportation vehicles. Tremendous forces torque axles and drivetrains. Operators and drivers stress the limitations of a machine’s implements and components regularly. The pushing of engines to maximum capacity is also a daily occurrence.
High engine temperatures and heavyweight are inescapable realities of the construction/development and transportation industries.
To counteract the consequences of high engine temperatures and tons of weight, manufacturers of heavy equipment and trucks make heavy, durable products. As a result, it is expensive to operate in the construction, development, and transportation industries.
Not only are the machines and trucks expensive, but diesel fuel is as well.
The Big Four Owner and Operating Costs: Parts & Machines and Fuel & Wages
Diesel fuel is the highest operating cost, save only wages. Replacing parts and equipment are the greatest ownership costs.
Wages are determined by industry standards as are the costs of machines and parts. They cannot be manipulated significantly. So in order to cut costs, company owners and owner/operators focus on fuels and fluids.
It is intrinsically apparent that cutting fuel costs saves money. But less obvious is the fact that reducing engine friction also saves money. Reducing friction extends the life of machines significantly. That means saving large sums of money.
That is part of what makes the Rentar Fuel Catalyst a necessity as opposed to a luxury. The Rentar reduces both the largest ownership cost and the biggest manipulatable operating cost.
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst both adds engine life and chops fuel prices exponentially.
Cutting Fuel Costs with Rentar Fuel Catalyst
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst can save company owners and owner/operators between 3% and 12% on diesel fuel. On marine engines, the Rentar cuts fuel consumption by up to 10%. The savings are even more exceptional when placed on the fuel line of a boiler or diesel fuel furnace. On furnaces and boilers, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst will save building and operations managers up to 30%.
The Rentar improves the fuel efficiency of light and heavy equipment, trucks, generators, boats, and ships, and closed vessels. Simply, for every $1,000 spent on diesel, the Rentar can save up to $120 and $300 respectively.
The Rentar is guaranteed to pay for itself within a single year, often in just three (3) months.
Rentar Reduces Engine Friction with Complete Fuel Combustion
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst can extend engine life by up to 20%.
An engine that would otherwise only last 8 years last 10 with the Rentar. One that would only last 16 years, typically, will last 20. A 24-year diesel engine can last for 30 with a Rentar Fuel Catalyst.
And how? A clean diesel burn: complete combustion — or as complete as any technology can make diesel engine combustion.
Incomplete Combustion Shortens the Life of a Diesel Engine
Diesel fuel engines last twice as long as a spark-ignition engine because of the nature of diesel.
Diesel fuel is much better lubricant than gasoline. But, just as petroleum creates friction in an engine, so too does diesel. While diesel is a far better lubricant than gasoline, it still generates friction, especially when diesel combustion is incomplete.
The Clustered Nature of Diesel
Diesel is not a homogeneous mixture. Diesel has fuel-dense pockets, clusters of diesel molecules. The clusters of fuel molecules make diesel more like a soup than a broth.
The clusters in diesel affect engines in two ways and the second contingent on the first.
Fuel-dense pockets, the clusters of fuel molecules, have a disproportionately low mixture of oxygen interspersed throughout them. Without oxygen, fuel cannot ignite, at least not completely. Incomplete combustion is the result of partial combustion of fuel-dense pockets, fuel molecule clusters.
The consequence of incomplete combustion is soot and soot degrades a diesel engine by creating friction.
How Soot Destroys Diesel Engines by Producing Friction
Most soot escapes out the exhaust system, particularly if an engine is new. But, if an engine is older, and particularly if it has worn piston rings, soot gets into the oil. Once soot begins contaminating the oil, severe problems can arise quickly.
Soot is 98% carbon by weight. And, “Soot particles have a nearly spherical shape and originate in the .01 to .05 micron size range.” While single soot particles are not dangerous to a diesel engine, soot particles agglomerate. The agglomeration of soot particles leads to soot clusters in the oil.
In other words, the fuel molecule clusters that lead to an incomplete burn lead to soot clusters in a diesel engine’s oil.
The Consequence of Soot: Sludge
Agglomerated soot clusters are commonly called sludge. Second, only to high temperatures, sludge does more damage to a diesel engine than anything else.
Without oil, a diesel engine runs steel on steel. Pistons rub on cylinders and valve hinges grind. In a matter of minutes, the engine will overheat and seize up. With any luck, the damage will not be permanent.
But, sludge literally, sands down the interior components of a diesel engine. The engine will not typically overheat or seize up immediately. But, the damage created by sludge can be far worse.
By grinding down engine parts slowly over time, the result is a permanent shortening of an engine’s life.
Unparalleled Emissions Reductions
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst breaks up the fuel clusters in diesel. A homogenized fuel means a clean fuel burn. A clean fuel burn means considerably greater fuel efficiency and the prevention of sludge.
And complete fuel combustion also means significantly lower emissions.
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst reduces greenhouse gases by up to 19.2%. Particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide, and other global warming gases are among those the Rentar minimizes. Carbon dioxide is reduced by the amount of fuel consumption that is reduced.
The Rentar reduces black smoke by up to 44%. It reduces elemental and organic carbons by up to 35%. Rentar’s fuel catalyst reduces cancer-causing volatile organics by between 35% and 58%.
And possibly most importantly of all, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst can dramatically extend the life of diesel engines.
