Diesel Guard Antigel Deicer Additives - The Perfect Winter Solution
ValvTect manufactures the industries most effective additive system to prevent winter diesel fuel problems such
as filter plugging caused by fuel gelling and icing. Our antigel formulas contain proprietary wax crystal modifiers,
cold flow improvers, heavy wax modifiers, and wax anti-settling properties. This prevents formation of large
wax crystals that plug filters and shut engines down.
All Diesel Guard winter grade formulas also include a non-alcohol jet fuel deicer/water dispersant which lowers the
freeze point of entrained water to prevent the formation of ice crystals. The dispersant safely removes a controlled
amount of moisture from tanks and lines to prevent water build-up and icing in the fuel system.
This advanced system of antigel and deicer components provides superior improvement of cold temperature
operability on a wide range of today's hard to treat low and high sulfur distillate fuels. Diesel Guard antigel/deicer
can provide improved cold temperature operability equaling up to a 70% blend of No.1 (Kerosene).
Proper use of Diesel Guard antigel/deicer additives can:
- Reduce the cold filter plug point up to 35 degrees.
- Reduce the pour point as low as -50 degrees or more.
- Reduce the freeze point of water to as low as -50 degrees F.
Distillate fuel treated with Diesel Guard antigel/deicer provides diesel equipment operators with significantly
better fuel economy by eliminating, or reducing, No.1 fuel which contains a Btu content about 4,000 less per gallon
than straight No. 2 diesel. A "winterized" diesel fuel with Diesel Guard antigel/deicer additive contains up to 1400
more Btu's per gallon than a 70/30 blend of No. 2 and No. 1, thus, producing more energy and better fuel
economy and power. Additional benefits verses a No.1 blend include better lubricity, deicing, moisture
dispersancy, and enhancement with cetane improver, detergents and other components to produce
a true "winterized" premium diesel fuel.
