Gasoline and diesel fuels are known for their high energy density and their qualities are optimised by fuel companies to maximise power output and fuel consumption. These fuels are brought to perfection for the respective application by various additives. Fuel additives play a major role in modern fuels, as the active molecules can further optimise and improve performance. To combine all these different molecules in one additive formulation, a strong solvent as carrier fluid is needed. For decades, fuel additive formulators rely on Haltermann Carless aromatic solvents to meet their needs.
Applications and dynamic market requirements
Fuel additives are used in
- aviation and marine fuels,
- as well as in fuels for electricity generation and domestic heating.
As corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants, detergents, cold-flow improvers, demulsifiers and friction modifiers, they offer a variety of positive effects for the performance and durability of an internal combustion engine.
The market requirements for the fuel additive industry are changing rapidly and continuously due to:
- new legal regulations,
- regulations for new fuel specifications and
- the resulting need for higher qualities
Innovations and the development of new additives are therefore often the focus of manufacturers and suppliers to meet the dynamic market needs.
Haltermann Carless heavy aromatics are used as solvent and are especially suitable for critical ingredients. Our Caromax® aromatic solvents enable fuel additive formulators to develop innovative and tailor-made concepts of the future. In the end, it is their additives that transform the already high-quality basic fuel into today's high-tech product.
Haltermann Carless offers high-quality aromatic solvents for additive formulations allowing basic fuels to become high-tech products.
