Lubricity Improvers

Severe hydrotreating is required to produce diesel with lower sulfur content that burns cleaner with lower emissions, however the process also removes naturally occurring lubricating components in the fuel. A diesel fuel with no lubricating properties leads to wear and tear of critical engine components and possible vehicle failure. Nalco Water offers both acidic and non-acid lubricity improvers to meet industry requirements for use in ultra-low sulfur diesel.
