Fuel Catalyst Described To Ship Operators- Literature Available

A fuel catalyst, Clean Power, was the recent focus of discussion at the Whitehall Club in New York. Company executives and engineers from 11 shipping companies convened to learn more about the product. The fuel catalyst is currently being used by several Scandinavian ship lines, who are reporting definitive fuel savings and lengthened maintenance intervals through cleaner engines.

Guest speaker at the conference was Nils Erik Flink, superintendent of engineering for Tor Lines, Gothenbere, Sweden. Mr.

Flink reports, "The Tor Lines have been using Clean Power for about 2!/' years, and we have retrofitted most of our ships for use of the product." He presented to the group a maintenance cost savings chart that reflected figures before and after use of the catalyst. "We have experienced extremely satisfying results with Clean Power. Exhaust valve life has been extended from 2,500 hours to 4,000 hours. Rings, injectors, pistons, and turbine maintenance schedules have been virtually rewritten." Mr. Flink added that the engine cleanliness has resulted in a marked decrease in lubrication oil consumption.
