DCP500 Diesel/HFO additive: Third Letter of No Objection from Wärtsilä in a row

MDEChem’s fuel additive DCP500 for diesel and HFO engines received it’s third Letter of No Objection from Wärtsila. First of all, issued at June 16th, 2006 for this Diesel/HFO additive, MDEChem is granted a second prolonguation until September 13th 2018 for DCP500.

The Letter of No Objection is valid for the following Wärtsilä engine types:

Wärtsilä® 20, 26, 32, 38, 46, 46F, 64, Vasa 22, 22/26, 32/32LN and Sulzer ZA 40 

MDEChem DFC or DCP500 is an application-engineered, fuel borne passivation technology, that utilizes proprietary technology to produce EPA verified results especially relevant in the areas of less damaging emissions and less diesel fuel or heavy fuel oil consumption. It is distributed outside the US by nC Surface Technology BV The Netherlands, and it’s affiliates and/or group members in Germany, Finland, Greece, India, Israel and Singapore.

As a result, MDEChem DFC/DCP500 improves the combustion process and reduces internal friction, hence increasing fuel economy while reducing emissions and engine wear. Also, unlike additives such as cetane enhancers, alcohols, or metal-based catalysts that seek to alter the fuel, MDEChem DFC fuel-borne technology uses the fuel only as a carrier into the combustion chamber.

This patented technology utilizes two processes to positively impact the engine; a catalytic reaction and a surface conversion. Because the catalytic reaction optimizes the heat release rate, this leads to increased power, less emissions, and increased fuel efficiency as a result. The surface conversion forms an inorganic polymer complex that converts the surfaces of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Consequently, this complex smoothens and passivates the metal surface, improves reflectivity (emissivity), and reduces oxygen reactivity, resulting in less friction and a more complete combustion reaction.
