CRISTOL PPD FX Series

(Malanstyrene Esters/ Ethylene vinyl acetates)

3 POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS FOR HEAVY FUEL These additives are polymers designed to interfere in the higher hydrocarbon crystallization process, thus modifying their crystal structure. The change in the crystal shape diminishes their ability to aggregates/ inter grow and inter lock, resulting in lowering the pour point of the heavy fuel.
  • Increases flow properties of heavy fuel oil at low temperatures.
  • Eliminates shutdown or inability to start diesel engines or furnaces.
  • Decreases the fuel loading & unloading time.

  • Efficiency of engine increases.
  • Reduces the time between the ignition and fuel burning.
CRISTOL 2 – EHN

(2-Ethylhexyl Nitrate)

7 LUBRICITY IMPROVERS FOR DIES These additives impart lubricity to the diesel which gets lost due to removal of natural occurring lubricity components while removing sulfur content from the crude.
  • Proven HFRR performance in a variety of fuels
  • Low sulphur content minimizes impact on ULSD
  • Excellent low temperature stability and handling
  • Does not harm other properties of Fuel.
CRISTOL LI Series

(Acid type/ Ester type)

8 OCTANE BOOSTERS These additives improve the Octane rating/octane number of the Gasoline. The higher the octane number, the more compression the fuel can withstand before detonating. Fuels with a higher octane rating are used in high-compression engines that generally have higher performance.
  • Help prevent engine detonation and the damage caused by it.
  • Free of poisonous components and heavy metal, reducing harmful gas exhaust, effectively.
  • Improves gasoline quality.
  • Low cost addition.
CRISTOL OB Series

(Non-metallic/ metallic based)

9 FUEL OIL EMULSIFIERS These additives are used to prepare a emulsion fuel compound, a mixture of water emulsified in heavy oil. It accounts to the need of fuel oil to flow liberally at lower temperatures. This lower viscosity aspect of fuel oil emulsion provides added savings in energy in pumping the fuel oil and heating it to preserve the emulsion in a proper pumping state.
  • Resulting operational benefits with ease of pumping emulsion even at low temperature.
  • Improved combustion properties.
  • Increases Primary and Secondary Atomization
  • More Complete and Even Burning, reduced soot.
CRISTOL FOE

(Proprietary Surfactant)

10 MULTI-FUNCTIONAL ADDITIVES FOR GASOLINE This is a complete performance package for gasoline, used to meet the challenges of modern Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) technology, whilst continuing to deliver excellent performance in traditional Port Fuel Injection (PFI) engine platform.
