Diesel

10ppm Diesel

South Africa’s first ever Sasol turbodieselTM ULS 10ppm

This is the lowest sulphur content diesel available in South Africa and has advanced detergency and lubricity properties to keep the engine and fuel injection system clean and well protected. It is ideally suited to compliment the modern day fuel to enable these engines to run efficiently, while producing less harmful exhaust emissions.

turbodieselTM ULS 10ppm is guaranteed to contain 10ppm sulphur or less and allows latest technology vehicles fitted with exhaust after treatment devices to operate freely in South Africa and will require less regeneration effort (less fuel consumed) to keep such devices in an active state and extend its service life.

This development is a step forward in moving South Africa closer to cleaner fuel specifications in line with international standards. turbodieselTM ULS 10ppm already complies with the sulphur and cetane requirements. This is an exclusive Sasol powered and engineered product.

Benefits:

Ultra-low sulphur content

  • Guaranteed sulphur content of less than 10ppm

Enhanced detergency

  • Clean engine and fuel systems ensure optimum performance

Improved acceleration

  • Clean-up effect of performance additives improves vehicle acceleration over time

Improved fuel economy

  • Less regeneration and cumulative effect of performance additives reduce overall fuel consumption

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

The less sulphur in the fuel you are using, the better it will be for both your high technology tractor’s engine and the environment in the long run.
