Dual Guard 12 is a bio-qualified fuel improver. Dual Guard 12 is bio-qualified to perform effectively in bio-blended diesel fuels. Today, the most common fuel used by diesel operators is B5 or 5% biodiesel fuel. It is the industry standard today. 5% biodiesel is added to diesel fuel as a lubricity modifier. It is very important that extensive testing be conducted on fuel additives so that it is determined that the fuel additive package will contain the required fuel additive chemistry to be helpful and function when added to a B5 diesel fuel. Dual Guard 12 is fully tested and proven to be the finest bio-qualified fuel improver available for 5% biodiesel fuel. Dual Guard improves thermal stability, offers increased lubricity, utilizes Clean Run Technology, restores and improves power and efficiency, and helps stabilize fuel for storage. One of the most mentioned issues confronting diesel equipment operators when utilizing modern day B5 diesel fuels is the loss of power. Dual Guard 12 vastly helps improve power. Through its unique chemistry, Dual Guard stabilizes the fuel, thus allowing the maximum number of BTUs to be generated when the B5 fuel is burned. Also, due to Dual Guard 12’s Clean Run Technology, diesel engine power remains at its highest because of Dual Guard’s ability to keep pins, vital fuel injection components, and spindles free of gum, varnish, and lacquer.
Unique Clean Run Technology
One of the main objectives when engineering Dual Guard 12 was to offer a fuel treatment that would help clean and maintain a clean fuel system. Today’s current diesel fuel injection systems are designed and engineered to function with extremely close tolerances. If these highly engineered fuel injection systems were to accumulate any buildup of deposits, then their abilities to perform and run efficiently would greatly suffer. Dual Guard 12, with its proprietary Clean Run Technology, was formulated with specialized detergents that are extremely effective at keeping injection and fuel systems free of harmful power robbing deposits.
Thermal Stability Enhancement
Modern day biodiesel fuels have a reputation of being thermally unstable and have shown to lack the required thermal stability during the high temperatures and large fuel injection pressures that they are exposed to by today’s diesel fuel injection systems. The current bio-based diesel fuels that are utilized by diesel operators show a breakdown internally during operation. This internal breakdown results in gum, varnish, and lacquer deposits accumulating. These harmful deposits hinder functionality, reduce power, and cause a decrease in fuel mileage. OEMs and diesel fuel experts have given these breakdown issues the moniker of “ID” which stands for Internal Diesel Injector Deposits. Dual Guard 12 with its superlative chemistry, will vastly improve a biodiesel’s thermal stability. You can expect ID issues to virtually disappear. Dual Guard 12 will improve diesel fuel performance, improve fuel economy, increase power, extend injector life, and minimize breakdowns.
Reduce Friction and Wear
One of the industry standard tests to measure the amount of wear that is allowed by diesel fuel is called the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig Test or HFRR for short. The typical allowed wear level that is specified in the US is 520 microns of wear. This level is higher than any other modern country in the world. In comparison, Europe allows 460 microns of wear from diesel fuel to be an acceptable level. The goal is to reduce that number to much lower levels. It goes without saying, nobody wants unnecessary wear for diesel engine components. Dual Guard 12 can lower the HFRR wear rate to a more acceptable 350-370 microns of wear from diesel fuel. This is accomplished by reducing friction and temperatures, which leads to an overall reduction in wear,
