Lubricity Enhancer

AFC Additive Component
A shortened life of engine components, such as diesel fuel injection pumps and injectors, has sometimes been ascribed to a lack of lubricity in diesel fuel. AFC's lubricity enhancer increases the lubricity of treated fuel, extending component lifespans through wear reduction. 

Features/Benefits

Increases fuel lubricity, extending engine life through decreased wear on moving parts.

Lubricity Enhancer TESTING

The following test was conducted using the ASTM D6079-99 testing methodology, which tests the lubricity of diesel fuels using a High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR). Testing was performed on several samples of diesel fuel, each dosed with different treat rates of AFC's lubricity enhancer.
  • This chart demonstrates the lubricity enhancer’s ability to increase lubricity and decrease component wear.
  • A smaller wear scar diameter is an indication of decreased component wear.
  • The Wear Scar Diameter (WSD) measurements are shown to decrease with higher doses of the lubricity enhancer in the diesel fuel.
  • With the recommended AFC treatment ratio, one should expect an average of 75 microns in WSD reduction.
