Antigels, also known as cold flow improvers, are used to prevent fuel gelling and lower the Cold-Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) of diesel fuel.
A fuel additive known as an "antigel" is one that is used to prevent fuel gelling. Fuel gelling occurs as the fuel reaches the Cold-Filter Plugging Point (CFPP) and fuel can no longer flow through the engine. A fuel additive that is an antigel is used as a preventive measure, to keep fuel from gelling.
With the introduction of Ultra Low Sulfer Diesel (ULSD), new challenges have been created to improve the cold-weather operability of diesel fuel. These challenges are the primary reason we evaluate our cold-flow technology annually on the hardest-to-treat fuels to ensure our customers maintain the highest level of confidence in their partnership with Power Service.
When temperatures drop below zero, it is imperative you have the confidence you will be running trouble-free. Power Service has earned the confidence of the industry's largest fleets and fuel marketers for over 50 years by providing the finest cold-flow technology available through continuous research and development.
