reply to your request we are pleased to say that use of the "rb
bertomeu" beco F2/A additive in our industrial installation at
Esteiro-Muros (La Coruna), where we have 2 steam boilers type GEVAL NK-400,
with a total capability of 8 Tm./h., has given us fully satisfactory
technical and economic results within the expectations created before
beginning the additive use in September 1999.
most important benefits that we have detected, during the period of
continued use to date, are the following:
Decrease of the fuel consumption per Tm. of steam produced,
Elimination of carbon build up in the burners with maintenance
reduction and greater operational continuity.
Reduction of fuel oil sludge with respect to the volume that was
Less need to clean the fuel oil circuits and filters.
Notable decrease in residues adhered to the pipes of the boilers,
which reduces the need for cleaning and raises the good use of energy,
maintaining the useful surface area of the heat exchanger.
Easier removal of residues as they are more powdery and less hard.
Absence of black smoke due to incorrect combustion and reduction
of CO, which means a reduction of pollution and fuel consumption.
