Diesel Fuel Additives market is classified based on various types such as Deposit Control Ad-ditives, Cetane Number Improvers, Cold Flow Improvers, Anti-Foam Additives, Corrosion In-hibitors, Demulsifiers/Dehazers/Emulsion Preventives, Conductivity Improvers, Metal Deac-tivators, Lubricity Improvers, and Others.
Typically, the higher the Mooney viscosity, the lower the cold flow due to differences in long chain entanglements.
The specialty fuel additives market can be segmented product wise intofuel antioxidants, lubricity improvers, corrosion inhibitors, deposit control additives, cold flow improvers, cetane number improvers, fuel system icing inhibitors,metal deactivators etc.
The moisture contained in the air condenses in the axial cold flow to form water droplets.
Independent lab certified to reduce Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) by 20% and overall emissions by 21% and has been shown to deliver an average Cetane rating over 52 when added to regular diesel fuel at fill up, Dynamo[TM] Diesel Cetane Booster also improves engine performance, power, and increases miles per gallon along with improving cold flow, increasing lubricity and cleaning fuel injectors.
The additives kerosene and ethanol were blended with Palm biodiesel-diesel blends to improve cold flow properties [10].
The twin cooling system's distinct feature of air distribution maintains a condensed and cold flow of air to cool food and beverages in a short period without the accumulation of ice.
Therefore, the weaker than normal polar vortex and straight zonal circulation weakened the southward movement of the northerly cold flow in 1963 and 1965.
