Many common technical problems are quickly and simply solved with the help of additives. These smart chemical tools should always be found in a fleet operator’s tool box because they help save money day by day. German additive specialist LIQUI MOLY shows the capability of its products:
WHAT ARE THEY
To begin, additives are not miracle-workers. They cannot decrease fuel consumption or double a truck’s horsepower. They cannot heal serious mechanical defects and cannot resurrect dead engines. No simple tool found in your tool box, such as a wrench, can do this either. But like their mechanical colleague, additives as a chemical wrench are valuable instruments that enhance the tool box of every fleet operator.
Additives are beneficial in many ways. Additives offer a smart and easy alternative to traditional mechanical repair works. They are cheaper, less time-consuming, and achieve the same or better results. Additives also help reduce operating costs by restoring a truck’s original fuel efficiency. Finally, additives reduce the risk of unplanned downtimes and improve equipment reliability.
LIQUI MOLY has many dozens of additives in its program—each for a specific area. Some solve existing problems, others ensure that problems don’t occur in the first place. The most important areas of use for additives are cleaning, wear protection, maintenance, repair, and special applications.
Deposits are the natural enemy of an engine’s efficacy. They encrust the fuel injectors and obstruct their nozzles, resulting in a fuel that is no longer properly atomized. The combustion becomes less and less effective and creates even more deposits. The engine loses power, fuel consumption goes up, and emissions increase. LIQUI MOLY Super Diesel Additive removes these deposits from the injector nozzles and returns the original engine performance.
The idea behind cleaning additives is simple: cleanliness and performance go hand in hand. A factory-new engine provides maximum performance and fuel efficiency. But combustion residue is created in the combustion chamber and oil cycle when driving, which causes the engine to fall further and further below its optimum level of performance. Only the removal of residue can counteract this creeping loss of performance. Cleaning the interior of the engine chemically is much simpler and faster when using special additives. LIQUI MOLY Pro-Line Engine Flush, for example, is a highly effective cleaner for the oil cycle. It is added just before an oil change and dissolves oil sludge, fuel inputs, and deposits that are then drained with the old oil. The fresh motor oil enters a clean engine and then deploys maximum performance.
Cleaning is not only important for the oil system, but also for the fuel system. The Super Diesel Additive by LIQUI MOLY is good for the engine in a number of ways. It cleans the injection system by removing deposits from the sensitive injectors and preventing new ones from forming. The fuel is once again finely atomized and efficiently combusts. It lubricates the injectors, increasing service life.
