AGRICULTURE

FARMS, LANDSCAPERS

In the agricultural sector, there is no cost-effective substitute for diesel engines with the same combination of energy efficiency, power and performance, durability and reliability.

Diesel dominates the entire “farm supply chain” – planting the product, tending the crop (watering, fertilisers, and pesticides), harvesting the product and even bringing the product to market by truck, rail or ship. Farm tractors, combines, irrigation pumps and other equipment are the workhorses in an industry vital to national economies and quality of life.

Cost Savings

The agricultural sector uses “Red Diesel”, but it is the same as regular diesel, only taxed at lower rates, and dyed so it can be easily recognized.  Usage is restricted to defined sectors which governments consider need the assistance of lower fuel costs.

Even though the cost of Red Diesel is lower, in common with other sectors of the economy, farmers are facing increasing costs and the difficulty of passing them on in higher food prices.  Consumers in turn are affected to the extent that costs have risen.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ can be expected to reduce fuel consumption by 5% to 10%.  This applies to all vehicles and machinery powered by diesel such as:

  • farm tractors,
  • combines,
  • irrigation pumps

Diesel dominates the entire “farm supply chain” – planting the product, tending the crop (watering, fertilisers, and pesticides), harvesting the crop and even bringing the crop to market by truck, rail or ship, and ElimiNOX USA would like to think that ElimiNOX Eco ™ can play an important part in alleviating fuel costs.

Using ElimiNOX Eco ™ will reduce business costs through:

  • reduced fuel consumption,
  • helping save the cost of expensive engine failures,
  • extending engine life, and
  • reducing service intervals.

Diesel Bug

Diesel bug is a root cause of problems in all diesel engines and is not particular to the agricultural sector. However, due to the nature of the vehicles, plant and machinery and the use of fuel storage tanks in the sector, diesel bug is a particular issue for it.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ eliminates this problem.

It does this by eliminating the water in the diesel by suspending it as an emulsion within the diesel, removing the growth medium where the diesel bug thrives and actively prevents diesel bug growth between re-fuelling.

Why treat the symptom when you can eliminate the cause. ElimiNOX Eco ™ is unique because it eliminates the most common cause of diesel bug – the water in which it grows

Four out of five diesel engine failures are a result of the dreaded diesel bug. Don’t become yet another victim of this avoidable statistic.

Plus if you use Red Diesel which has a biodiesel (FAME) component, the issues associated with diesel are exaggerated. This has been clearly demonstrated in the UK where there is a legal requirement to increase the FAME component over time. Reported issues include poor machine performance, blocked filters on storage tanks and machines, replacement of filters before schedule – sometimes after only a few hours of use – resulting in expensive machinery breakdowns and delays to field work. Unlike mineral diesel, FAME is ‘hydroscopic’ which means it attracts and holds onto water.

Emissions

Storage Tanks

ElimiNOX Eco ™ has the added benefit of reducing maintenance and improving the life span of fuel storage tanks.  It will also keep fuel in storage tanks clean, scavenging excess water from fuel tanks maintaining fuel integrity and stability contributing to reduced filter blocking. . It ensures diesel bug is both eliminated and prevented.
