50ppm

Diesel 50 ppm Overview

Continuously changing targets with regard to international emission standards complicate matters for the manufacturers of agricultural machinery and engines. Fuel manufacturers are also put under pressure because they have to keep up with rapidly changing engine technology in order to meet the ever increasing stringent requirements regarding the sulphur content of fuel.

Sulphur in fuel is the main contributing factor to harmful gas emissions. The environmentally friendly choice is therefore to use diesel containing 50 parts or particles per million (ppm) – i.e. 0,005% sulphur.

Diesel with lower sulphur content has other significant benefits for the owners of tractors, combine harvesters and other agricultural machinery with high technology engines. These benefits include:

  • Performance and the longer lifespan of lubricants, resulting in extended service intervals and a prolonged engine lifetime.
  • Engine performance improves, because 50 ppm diesel has cleaner and more effective combustion properties
  • Diesel of 50 ppm causes less wear and tear and therefore prolongs engine life. Sulphur oxidises during combustion and forms sulphur dioxide, while nitrogen from the air is also oxidised, forming nitrogen oxide. Both of these oxides react further and form acids which are detrimental to engine components and also adversely affect lubrication. The more sulphur fuel contains, the higher the chances are of engine wear and tear.
  • Lubricants containing additives help combat wear and tear caused by sulphuric acid.
