Expect Maximized Value from Industrial Fuels

Lubrizol’s industrial fuel additive technology improves the value of residual fuels in boiler and power plant applications by maximizing fuel efficiency, quality and stability, while reducing emissions and equipment wear.

Formulated to deliver highly active levels of unique metallic and non-metallic chemistries, these additives are designed to react with and remove residual fuel impurities. This reaction simultaneously increases combustion efficiency, reduces emissions and decreases system deposits. Chemical interactions with additives also reduce corrosion during production, extending equipment life and increasing heat transfer.

Lubrizol’s formulations include high concentrations of active components, can be stored for up to a year and are safe to handle and operate. Our industrial fuel additive technology portfolio is supported by Lubrizol’s extensive product and application expertise and industry leading testing. To learn more, contact

Product Chemical Description Solubility Suggested Application(s)
LUBRIZOL® 8418 Lubrizol® 8418 is a high molecular weight polycarboxylic acid acylating agent with an average molecular weight between 500 and 3000 Mn, with at least one equivalent of a polyhydric alcohol containing between 2 and 6 hydroxyl groups under dehydrating conditions, containing zero nitrogen Oil-Soluble Composition To maintain stability of insoluble molecular substances found in heavy fuel oil (HFO), with resins, aromatics hydrocarbons, and saturated hydrocarbons as alkanes, suspended in fuel , minimizing settling, significantly reducing deposition.  
LUBRIZOL® IF90002 Lubrizol® IF90002 is an Oil based 9.2% calcium sulfonate containing, 2.18% iron carboxylate with aliphatic, aromatic, sulfonate substrate with a molecular weight between 310 - 449. Oil-Soluble Composition To promote conditions under which iron can react with oxygen, allowing the formation of a high fractions of free radicals to react with complex structure or insoluble molecular substances, such as resins, aromatics, alkanes, suspended in an oily environment, leading to more complete reaction, modifying composition of flue gas, significantly reducing deposition, minimizing maintenance.
