For companies that operate a fleet of engines, fuel economy and emissions are key contributors to uptime and company profits. Fuel economy and the effect on company operating expenses is straightforward. However, with the addition of particulate filters and regen cycles, the emissions coming off of the engine plays a key role as well. According to clients, the engine fault codes that cause a majority of engine shut downs and lost revenue are related to fuel and emissions issues.
Companies spend massive amounts each year on wasted fuel, repair, and downtime costs. Carbon deposits and overheating cause engines to wear more quickly. The amount of fuel required at a specific RPM or load dictates how much fuel will be used, and fuel economy tends to decrease over time.
To measure the effects of TK7 on engine performance, Southwest Research Institute conducted a million-mile high RPM stress test. The test is designed to make an engine fail and to measure the point at which the failure occurred along with detailed diagnostics including engine temperature. TK7 is the only product to make it to the end of the test and engine temperature never went outside normal operating range. This stress test compares results for an engine using base fuel only and an engine running base fuel and TK7. The TK7 nanotechnology changes the molecular fuel structure to improve the fuel burn, reduce emissions, coat the upper cylinders with a synthetic lubricant, and lower engine temperatures.
In fact, with the TK7 treated engine, you can still see the original honing of the cylinder sleeves. The engine with base fuel only failed the test. In short, engines with TK7 last longer, have lower emissions, have better fuel economy, run at lower temperatures, and have less repair and downtime costs.
As TK7 burns in the engine, multiple product features combine to create a unique result for clients.
IGNITION IMPROVER – The primary benefit is the improved firing and burn rate, which leads to improved fuel efficiency, restoring engine power, and improved cold starts.
OXYGEN AGITATOR – A catalyst that improves and releases additional oxygen and nitrogen during combustion.
METAL DEACTIVATOR – Prevents copper and other alloys from catalyzing the oxidation process and helps to eliminate the formation of gum deposits. The De-Activator surrounds the alloys (especially copper) and renders them inactive.
ANTI-OXIDANT – This feature stabilizes the base fuel, especially lower grade fuel or fuel that is processed with higher Olefinic materials from thermal or cat cracking processes.
CORROSION INHIBITOR – This compound forms a protective film which prevents water from contacting the metal or other alloy surfaces. It works extremely well on aluminum, copper, bronze and magnesium.
DEPOSIT CONTROL – This compound helps dissolve deposits & solids, promotes molecular balance, reduces knock & after-run caused by deposits in the base fuel.
INJECTOR & CARBURETOR CLEANER – A compound, which works by solvent action to hold deposits in solution so they do not plate out. This will result in a cleaner carburetor plate or fuel injector tips & ports resulting in an improved spray pattern.
DISPERSANT – Will absorb particles and keep them suspended with the base fuel.
ANTI-ICING – Improves pour point (fuel gelling) and prevents ice formation in the carburetor throat, throttle plate and fuel lines.
COLD FLOW IMPROVER – Retards wax and crystal formation so they do not restrict fuel flow.
GENERAL DETERGENTS – Immediately reacts with the base fuel to prevent varnish and lacquer build- up in the fuel system, valves and the entire combustion chamber area.
TOP CYLINDER LUBRICANT – This benefit is a result of the burning of the formulation during combustion. The by-product of this reaction is a form of synthetic lubricant that cushions the valves & valve seats, cylinder walls and rings. This lubricant helps reduce friction, overheating, and prevents carbon build up in the combustion chamber area.
BIOCIDE – Kills and eliminate future bacterial contamination including bacteria, fungi and yeast. (The Biocide is added mainly to diesel and fuel oil additives).
SAE International engineers and leading engine consultancy, Atkins and Ray Engineering, also conducted a 10-test review of TK7 and say this about the nanotechnology:
“The “no-harm” aspect of TK7 is clearly demonstrated.”
“The evidence for fuel consumption reduction is overwhelming. The Octel test was
designed to be as difficult as possible for the additive to show a fuel consumption
benefit, but it did”
“The Valve Seat Recession (VSR) control is remarkable, particularly considering that
TK7 contains no metals or metallic compounds.”
“There is strong evidence of wear reduction and control of particulate deposition into
the crankcase oil.”
“The writers recommend that that this additive should be blended into premium fuel
and marketed as a top tier product.”
