Diesel Fuel Lubricity Additives


Diesel fuel tank

Lubricity of fuel is important to satisfactory operation of diesel engines. The fuel must lubricate many moving parts within the fuel injection system. Lubricity of diesel fuel has become even more critical with the move to ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel. The severe hydrotreatment to remove sulfur from ULSD removes naturally occurring lubricity properties from the fuel. This means that ULSD has poor lubricity.

MCC has developed diesel fuel lubricity additives designed to meet both industry specification and engine manufacturers' recommendations for lubricity.
