LSI Chemical TotalArmorW7 Diesel Fuel Additive

TotalArmorW7 provides consistent winter operability and increases cetane up to 7-points for improved power, fuel economy and cold starts.

LSI Chemical has introduced TotalArmorW7, a new winter blend diesel fuel aftermarket additive formulated to ensure complete operability in freezing temperatures while also improving other important characteristics of diesel fuel. Developed for refineries and fuel jobbers, or for private label use, TotalArmorW7 provides consistent winter operability and increases cetane up to 7-points for improved power, fuel economy and cold starts. 

Formulated with cloud point and pour point depressants, detergents and a lubricity improver, TotalArmorW7 prevents gelling and icing and disperses moisture to ensure full operation even in freezing temperatures. This is a critical issue for all diesel fuel powered vehicles and equipment– agriculture, marine, industrial, heavy-duty, automotive and powersports where downtime or failure to operate can be of high financial or personal cost.  

Utilizing a third-party test, fuel treated with TotalArmorW7 documented an improved Pour Point from -18°F / -27.7°C down to -50°F / -45.6°C based on a Shell baseline diesel fuel. The Cold Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) was improved from -20°F / -28.9°C to -35°F / -37.2°C compared with a Marathon baseline diesel fuel. This fuel additive complies with all federal low sulfur content requirements for use in diesel motor vehicles and non-road engines. 

LSI Chemical President Todd Cawley says, “LSI specializes in developing market-ready fuel and oil additives, with a focus on patented Nano Technology, for fuel jobbers, fleets, diesel fuel refiners and end consumers unlike any available on the market. This is our second diesel fuel aftermarket product that was formulated for cold weather operation. With a first-class research lab and sampling program we have the ability to customize fuel based on the specific needs of your region or customer base.”

TotalArmorW7 minimizes the size of wax crystals and prevents paraffin wax precipitation to allow fuel to travel through the fuel filter and remain operable. The cloud point is lowered by solubilizing paraffin nuclei as they begin to crystallize with the addition of pour point depressants that modify paraffin crystal growth as they precipitate.
