Ultra Tec ULSD
What is Ultra Tec Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel?
ULSD is the abbreviation for Ultra Tec Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel. It’s a cleaner burning fuel that has been refined so that its sulphur content is lower than regular diesel fuel. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element that is found in crude oil from which diesel fuel and other petroleum products are derived.
Benefits of ULSD
Protects Vital Engine Parts
- Lowers maintenance costs through reduced wear and tear
- Excellent engine corrosion protection
- Improves water separation and prevents emulsion formulation
- Enhances lubricity properties
Maximises Engine Performance
- Keeps combustion chamber clean
- Clean injectors by removing deposits
- Restores lost power
Improves Fuel Efficiency
- Reduces unburned fuel
- Reduces foam formation for faster refueling
- Reduces sulphur dioxide emissions
- Reduces black smoke exhaust fumes
- Significantly improves are quality
More and more we are experiencing an increased environmental awareness worldwide. In addition, vehicle manufacturers have developed advanced emission control systems for newer diesel engines that reduce harmful emissions. Sulphur reduction in diesel is essential to preserving both the proper function of these vehicles and will result in lower emissions globally.
ULSD is a safer, more environmentally-friendly choice, and is being introduced in response to the worldwide shift towards increased environmental awareness.
Regular diesel had a maximum sulphur content of 5000 ppm (parts per million). ULSD has a significantly lower sulphur content of 15 ppm, so low that it is categorised “Ultra Low”.
ULSD is specifically formulated to prevent build up and remove deposits on your engine’s fuel injectors, combustion chamber and valves. Deposit build up on fuel injectors have a direct impact on the combustion efficiency in a diesel vehicle. ULSD is also formulated with demulsifiers to promote water separation and provide excellent corrosion control, preventing filter blockage. In short, consistent use of ULSD will result in greater fuel and engine efficiency which maximises the performance of your vehicle and saves you money.
No. ULSD contains excellent lubricity to protect fuel system components from wear. So, when using ULSD there is no need to add any additional lubricant.
Yes. Any vehicle or equipment engine that uses diesel can use ULSD. Its corrosion inhibitors will protect your engine.
ULSD enables the use of cleaner diesel engine technology resulting in improved air quality through the following: reduction in exhaust smoke; reduction in sulphur emissions; and less exhaust odour.
ULSD is available in Antigua, Barbados, Grenada and Suriname.
