ACES II Diesel Fuel Catalyst is a multi-benefit, multi-function catalyst. This product raises Cetane power levels, cleans, and maintains the entire fuel system. Through the use of ACES liquid engineering technology produces abundant, upper cylinder lubricant replacing sulfur as the lubricant for injectors and injector pumps. Along with its many other benefits ACES eliminates valve wear by 360% and bore wear by 600%.

The way ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst works is by chemically changing 43 cetane fuel to 45+ cetane fuel, therefore, producing more horsepower. Cold weather pour-point is also decreased to temperatures as low as -19 °F. This product also contains a high detergent, non-alcohol fuel injector cleaner, of the safest quality, to dissolve carbon buildup, wax, and crystalline problems found in fuel systems. ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst also produces an upper cylinder lubricant which reduces cylinder wear by 600% while virtually eliminating valve recession.

ACES liquid engineering technology is far more advanced then outdated sulfur fuels of the past. Through the combination of an upper lubricant and added power this products generates increased fuel mileage while reducing fuel costs and maintenance. Smoke opacity is also reduced an average of 50%. In addition, ACES Diesel Fuel catalyst does not contain sulfur, maintains storage tanks, and is EPA registered.

ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst provides a "liquid engineering" solution for meeting EPA regulations. The following information provides a more detailed explanation of what ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst does and how it works:

  • Fuel Reduction: ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst contains components which improve engine ignition, therefore reducing fuel consumption. The BTU of the fuel is also raised, resulting in more consistent and complete combustion. Higher BTU contributes to a much better fuel charge with more power and a dramatic reduction with emissions. On average, fuel usage is reduced from 5% to 20%.
  • Cetane Improvement: ACES products increased cetane ratings from 43.6 to 45.3 based on ASTM test number D-613. This increase will assure better cold starting, reduced smoke opacity, and faster warm-ups resulting in earlier underway operation.
  • Smoke Opacity: Independent tests have indicated a reduction of up to 25.5% during acceleration and as much as 80% during second gear. All power units will see an improvement regardless of life span.
  • Emission Reductions: As a result of using ACES liquid engineering technology hydro carbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) are reduced. This reduction is due to an increase in complete combustion. On average oxides of nitrogen are reduced 20%.
    * High Temperature Detergent: Unlike petroleum distillate fuel Additives, the detergent in ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst promotes full volumetric efficiency allowing for continuously clean spray patterns. This detergent also guards against gum and varnish build up on the injector tip while eliminating fuel tank sediment through liquefaction and incineration.
  • Metal Deactivator: To prevent the formation of gum and varnish ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst renders copper and vanadium compounds inactive. Traditional diesel fuel engines build-up carbon in injectors and cylinders, however, use of ACES liquid engineering technology allows engines to stay free of all carbon build-up while noticeably reducing smoke emissions.
  • Upper Cylinder Lubricity: Southwest Research Institute performed the Caterpillar 1K test, a military specification test for diesel catalysts. As a result of the 252-hour engine test ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst significantly improved the condition of the cylinder liner, piston, and piston ring. This test also showed that this ACES product performed better then 3000-ppm sulfur. It was also observed that valve stems, guides, seats, compression rings, as well as injector pumps and injectors were well lubricated with no fuel-related failures.
  • Increased Horsepower: With the combination of greater BTU, improved lubrication, and better hydrodynamic ring seal average horsepower increased 15 %. This increase in horsepower greatly contributes to improved uphill, downhill, and long grade performance.
  • Pour-point Depressant: Introduction of ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst into No.2 fuel, having a pour-point of -7°F, effectively lowered the pour-point to -19°F. With this product filter plugging and gelling is not possible. This is due to the low viscosity formulations which promote complete molecular equality resulting in fuel that is evenly treated.
  • Water Emulsifier: This product effectively treats water trapped in the bottom of fuel tanks through the use of a unique compound. This compound combines water with fuel and, as a result, water is burned up by the engine. This ACES liquid engineering technology efficiently reduces water caught in the separator by up to 5% by volume.
  • Fuel Stabilization: ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst promotes molecular balances (keeps fuel from separating) resulting in a much greater and consistent flame travel in the combustion chamber.
  • Metal Affinity Compound: This technology prevents fuel tanks, in power units and storage tanks, from becoming corroded. This is due to a metal compounded in the ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst which prevents corrosion caused by excess water in the tank. This compound also has a special affinity for copper and aluminum, however, also protects all metals.
  • Safe for Seals and Fuel System Components: Most fuel additives contain common formulations that attack Buna-N, neoprene, nylon, and rubber. ACES formulations will not dry out, swell or attack any fuel system component.
  • Does NOT Contain Petroleum Distillates: Many additives, present on the market, have not changed their technology in the last 70 years. This outdated approach utilizes naphthalene, kerosene, ethylbenzene, oxylnitrate, ethylene or propylene glycol, nitric acid, vinyl acetate, and sinterable metal compounds. These compounds, at best, are non-functional and, at worst, cause premature failure of various components contaminating the oil. However, ACES Diesel Fuel Catalyst utilizes the most advanced technology available on the market today.
