In these times, reducing vessel operating costs is usually a complex, challenging and expensive proposition. But with the help of Ferrous FE4 Combustion Catalyst, you can win a small but decisive victory in the battle against the high costs of fuel, repairs and maintenance.

Small investment, large return.

A small, one-time investment for equipment and in- stallation, plus a half of a percent addition to operating fuel costs, can result in five to 15 times that amount in measurable savings.

Ferrous has the proof: Success! • Lower fuel costs. • Significantly fewer deposits in marine diesels and boilers. • Less visible smoke and soot. • Definite improvement in the combustion of poor quality and lower grade fuels.

All of these benefits are proven in independent laboratory testing and actual operation today aboard more than 50 ships. 4,000 diesel locomotives and thousands of fleet vehicles.

Ferrous has been used in marine diesel and steam power plants for more than 15 years. If you'd like to talk to satisfied customers who are using FE4 to solve the kinds of problems you may be having, we'll be happy to introduce you!

It all adds up.

Lower fuel costs plus reduced maintenance and repair costs plus less downtime compared to the low cost of the

Ferrous FE4 Combustion Catalyst Program adds up to a suprisingly high Return On Investment. The FE4 Program is a fraction of the cost of retrofitting your power plant with ordinary fuel saving equipment.
