Why do we need a diesel conditioner?
All commercial diesel in Australia is a blend of approximately 75% distilled and 25% catalytically ‘cracked’ fuel. Navies of the world use pure distillate, for reasons which will become apparent hereafter. The cracked portion of the fuel is extracted from the thick tars left over from the distillation process.
The cracked component is unstable and wants to return to its original tar state. This is called polymerisation. An ongoing process that never stops. Polymerisation results in microscopic clusters or “lumps” forming in the fuel and thus early soiling or “plugging” of fuel filters. Filters should last thousands of hours, however often they don’t, resulting in unnecessary replacement costs. Diesel hydrocarbon clusters are sharp & abrasive, like microscopic lumps of coal or tiny diamonds.
What do the fuel clusters cause?
In comparison to a 10 micron standard pore in the average diesel fuel filter, an optimum quality diesel fuel particle at 30 angstrom (there are 1000 angstrom in 1 micron and 1000 micron in 1 millimetre), is equivalent in size to a grapefruit in the middle of a football field.
With 10000 to 30000 pounds per square inch (PSI) of pump pressure, an eight micron fuel particle will score its way through pumps & injectors.
This results in early damage to pumps & injectors leading to very high repair bills. Manufacturers will NOT warrant repairs caused by fuel damage.
Modern fuel pumps have clearances of 5 micron or less and diesel fuel polymerisation clusters are often between 5 to 15 micron in size.
‘Lumpy’ diesel results in a coarse spray pattern through the injector.
A coarse spray pattern results in only 85% to 95% diesel burn during the combustion stroke.
This results in
- A lower power output than the engine is designed for and excessive fuel consumption.
- Incomplete combustion causes tar & carbon deposits in the engine on the cylinder head & piston crown.
- Over-heated turbocharger.
- Black exhaust smoke.
- Incomplete combustion causes glazing of the cylinder bores and a gummy tar/varnish build up around the piston rings, resulting in a further loss of power and advanced engine wear.
- Increased carbon soot being introduced to the lubricating oil, forming a damaging abrasive paste, which results in early wear and costly failure of the engine components.
If the engine is fitted with a turbocharger, lumpy fuel results in still-burning fuel clusters heading to the turbo when the exhaust valve opens, causing stress to the hot wheel and early turbo failure. This is very costly, particularly in utility vehicles and trucks.
In addition, excessive soot is returned from the EGR valve, causing a significant blockage of the air system. This is very common currently & expensive to repair.
Lastly, off-spec diesel results in toxic black smoke, which is unburnt diesel, being discharged into the air, affecting both staff and the public.
How does the Green-Mag work?
The Green-Mag diesel conditioner is a low-level magnetic inductive device which transfers magnetic energy (London Force) from the magnet to the fuel molecules, raising the level of electrical energy in the polymerised fuel cluster, which results in the break- up of the fuel clusters into smaller and smaller particles. It’s that simple.
