Cleaning Up Engine Deposits is a Very Real Problem

Cleaning Up a Very Real Problem

 IDID’s have the potential of causing catastrophic engine problems.

Internal diesel injector deposits (IDID) are a very real problem in today’s diesel fuel injector systems.  These deposits are generally unnoticeable at first but if left untreated IDID buildup can decrease engine power, significantly reduce fuel economy, increase emissions and eventually will lead to expensive injector failure and equipment downtime.

IDID is really an evolution of an old problem.  Historically deposits on diesel injector tips would form in and around nozzle holes, disrupting spray pattern, causing improper fuel delivery and poor fuel combustion.  Diesel fuel detergents that have worked in the past do not correct the IDID problem.

Today’s Tier 3 and Tier 4 engines with High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) diesel fuel injection systems have created new problems.  HPCR diesel fuel systems have much smaller internal spray holes and more intricate parts with very tight tolerances.  These modern injector systems are far less forgiving of IDID build-up.  With internal tolerances much smaller than a human hair, any build-up at all can cause sticking problems and injector issues that have not been seen before.

                         

Today’s sophisticated computer driven common rail injectors are made with significantly smaller internal moving parts with very tight tolerances making them much more susceptible to sticking due to IDID.

 

Amalgamated’s® custom formulated diesel fuel additives specifically compounded for HPCR engines contain proven detergents that have been tested and certified to eliminate both conventional diesel injector nozzle deposits in older fuel systems as well as IDID in all newer engines.  As an independent custom blender of diesel fuel additives, Amalgamated® can tailor an additive package to the specific needs of each individual customer and the typical base fuels they use.  Our performance additive packages contain these proven detergents that will clean up existing IDID and maintain diesel injector cleanliness for peak engine performance and optimum reliability.
