Several independent tests in world renowned organisations and universities have also been conducted. These tests have been conducted to strict International Engineering practices and have time and again proven the ability of FTC Decarbonizer to promote a more complete combustion providing economic fuel efficiencies.
NSW Mines Department (Coal Branch) – 1978
The NSW Mines Department conducted exhaust emission tests on a Perkins D3-152 DI diesel engine. These tests conducted over a range of loads provided evidence of an average 38% reduction in unburnt hydrocarbons (soot) and a 3.6% reduction in CO2 following treatment of FTC to fuel.
These significant reductions in emissions relate to the effect of FTC providing a more complete combustion.
University of Western Australia (U.W.A.) – November 2005
In conjunction with Rio Tinto’s Pilbara Iron operations, fuel efficiency tests at UWA facility were conducted using generators fitted with fuel meters, load box facility and other test equipment to accurately measure fuel consumed for power produced.
Tests were conducted on both new and older engines to represent differing ages as would be expected in a general working environment. Two engines at a time were used, one as test, whilst the second was used as the control engine to determine any climatic affected changes.
These tightly controlled tests proved the difficulties encountered when trying to accurately measure fuel consumption but by controlling as many of the variables as possible did provide evidence of fuel efficiency savings between 2% and 5.5%, dependent on engine and load, following FTC Decarbonizer treatment of fuel.
In the field engines do not operate consistently in this mode and often cycles through inefficient throttle and engine speed settings. Substantial fuel efficiencies up to 7% to 8% can be realised following FTC Decarbonizer treatment of fuel operating under normal working parameters.
