Whether you operate a fleet of trucks, marine vessels, fracking pumps, drilling rigs, or other combustion engines, downtime means additional costs to your company.  In many cases, that downtime also means lost revenue. Then, when you factor in the additional costs for retrieving downed equipment, or taking equipment out of the field for repairs, the costs really stack up.

Fuel consumption and maintenance repair costs also drive profit margins.   Leading companies use the following approach to achieve top-level operating efficiency and surpass their peers.

1. Measure

There is an old adage that says, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure”.  This still holds true today. Leading companies measure the things that drive operating costs and revenue.  They work to drive both sides in a positive direction because both play into the net profits of the company, along with stock value, profit sharing, bonuses, and other compensation based on the effectiveness of the organization.

When we deploy our TK7 nanotechnology with companies, we work to ensure there is a baseline for fuel consumption, repair downtime costs, and missed revenues.  These baseline measurements are critical in determining the impact of our nanotechnology on efficiency, operating costs and improved uptime revenue.

2.  Improve

Once the baseline measures are established, leading companies look at the trend of those measurements on an ongoing basis.  For example, in the case of truck fleet operations, the net profit of a fleet is dependent on the amounts of fuel consumption, maintenance, and downtime.  These companies work to drive down operating costs while improving the uptime of their operations to attack both revenue and cost containment.

As another example, oil and gas exploration companies need their equipment to be running at full capacity in order to generate revenue.  Just a moderate amount of downtime in equipment over the course of a year can mean the difference in making solid profits or losing money.  Uptime is essential in delivering services on time and meeting the budget of the jobs proposed.

3. Expand

Leading companies take specific areas of the business, measure the impacts of a technology and expand.  They look for areas where they can harness the technology that drives revenue and profit margins.  They are always working to improve profitability and outcomes for their employees and shareholders.

TK7 provides an average 15% improved fuel economy, 3.5 times longer engine and engine component life, and more uptime.  These all add up to big costs savings and additional revenue that were unable to be captured before.

TK7 has been put through the most rigorous stress tests possible and is the only fuel technology to make it to the end of the million-mile full RPM test at Southwest Research Institute.  The engine with base fuel only failed the test, but the engine with the TK7 nanotechnology kept going.

Below are a few testimonials regarding the impacts of running TK7:

  • We have measured 18.77% fuel reduction – Truck Fleet
  • In excess of 15% savings on fuel and you can see the engines are burning cleaner – Fracking Company
  • 50% to 100% more miles without major repairs – Military Truck Fleet
  • Average valve recession improvement of 361% – David Vizard, Engine Design and Testing Expert
  • Strong evidence of wear reduction – Atkins and Associates Engineering

The continued use of TK7 reduces fuel consumption and improves engine performance while reducing downtime and maintenance.  Contact us to see how we help companies improve revenue per asset, improve uptime, and reduce costly maintenance repairs.
