Here’s How Owners of Heavy-Duty Off-Road Equipment Can Save Money
Owners of heavy-duty off-road equipment can substantially reduce overhead costs by increasing fuel consumption efficiency. With respect to the costs associated with operating this equipment, diesel fuel — with the exception of operator wage — is the biggest expense proprietors and companies that own heavy duty off road equipment must cover.
Fuel costs are typically greater than the price of parts and maintenance each year and far more than insurance each year. Over the long run, diesel fuel costs are more than the price of a piece of equipment itself.
Even a small increase in fuel efficiency can equate to substantial savings.
Digital Technology Is the Solution to Operator Waste
Fuel waste is often a symptom of operator error and/or inefficiency. Digital technology is the most effective means of increasing operator efficiency. Computer software programs designed specifically for the reduction of fuel waste resulting from decisions and proficiency of operators have proven effective at cutting operator error-associated fuel waste.
Most heavy duty off-road equipment manufacturers offer GPS and engine monitoring systems that can track the movements of a machine, determine the amount of time a machine sits idle, report the amount of fuel consumed over a given amount of time, monitor spikes and valleys in fuel consumption, and evaluate operator efficiency.
By having such data, heavy equipment companies and proprietors can reduce waste by putting in measures that ensure operators are working equipment in the most fuel-efficient manner.
But GPS and engine monitoring systems require careful evaluation of data, the implementation of an operations standard, and further monitoring. And GPS and engine monitoring systems do not guarantee substantial fuel savings, only an increase in operator efficiency.
The greatest amount of fuel savings is actually the product of a mechanical device: a fuel catalyst.
Rentar Fuel Catalyst: The Promise of Immediate, Noticeable Fuel Cost Savings
The benefits of using the Rentar Fuel Catalyst — most importantly — include fuel savings of up to 12 percent for heavy equipment. On diesel generators, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst can increase fuel efficiency by up to twice that amount.
What Is a Rentar Fuel Catalyst and How Does It Reduce Diesel Fuel Consumption?
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst is a pre-combustion fuel catalyst. The Rentar is backed by 28 issued U.S. and world wide patents and is the product of a company with 14 years of experience designing fuel-saving equipment for diesel engines. Rentar catalysts are proven both in EPA & CARB recognized labs. They have been field tested in all variety of conditions and are in operation on six different continents.
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst works by passing fuel over a patented combination of metals and rare earth elements, pre-conditioning the fuel so that more surface area of the molecules are exposed to oxygen at the point of combustion. As the fuel passes over the metals and rare earth elements, a small amount of hydrogen is released, enhancing the combustion process.
Rentar Fuel Catalysts reduce fuel consumption and extend the life of an engine — as well as reduce engine maintenance costs — by preventing the accumulation of unburned diesel residue.
Equally as important, Rentar Fuel Catalysts reduce the emission of harmful greenhouse gases by up to 19 percent.
Rentar Fuel Catalysts are installed on machines all over the world on more than 23,000 machines. They are used by Fortune 500 Companies, small and large businesses, and government agencies for a total amount of savings equaling millions of dollars.
Laboratories that have attested to the savings a Rentar catalyst generates include:
•Southwest Research Institute
•U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground
•Virginia Tech University
•EPA / CARB Recognized Olson Eco-Logic Engine Laboratory
•ESDC – Locomotive Engine System Development
•Naval Facilities Engine Service Center
