In order for fuel and fuel systems to be effectively preserved, a biocide is essential. Choosing the right biocide can be a challenge. What are the qualities of an ideal fuel biocide?
Diesel Fuel Additives
Since the invention of the first compression ignition reciprocating engine in 1892 by German Engineer, Rudolf Diesel, diesel fuel has become the primary fuel for freight and delivery of goods. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, most diesel in the U.S. is produced in… Read More »Diesel Fuel Storage 101
There is nothing worse than starting your furnace and realizing it doesn’t work. Microbial contamination of fuel is linked to equipment failure. System owners may service their heater seasonally, but often neglect basic housekeeping which includes fuel quality management. So, fuel related issues prevail. In… Read More »Heating Oil Problems
Diesel fuel provides more power than any other transportation energy source currently being used. It powers more farm equipment, public transit buses and delivery vehicles than any other fuel technology in America. While there are new technologies being tested, Diesel remains the predominant fuel, shipping… Read More »Transportation Energy
To the workboat industry, breakdowns represent both a loss of revenue and a potential for loss of life. That is why fuel quality management should play an important role in keeping equipment running in the harshest environments. Biobor Fuel Additives were designed for such a… Read More »An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure
Biobor MD is a cutting edge marine and over-the-road fuel additive engineered to enhance fuel performance, increase lubricity and lower exhaust emissions. It raises cetane for easier cold starting while adding lubricity and providing more efficient engine combustion. It cleans and disperses sludge resulting in… Read More »Biobor MD
Fuel biocides are chemical additives used to control and prevent microbial contamination in fuels. Microbes such as bacteria, fungi, and yeast can proliferate in fuel systems, particularly in stored or stagnant fuel, and cause various issues. They are specifically designed to inhibit the growth and… Read More »Don’t Trust Any Other Biocide with Your Equipment
