From inception, SulNox has been affiliated with South Africa, specifically Durban, which is the home of Jimmy Redman, our chief scientist. Indeed, Jimmy is a pioneer in the field of fuel emulsifiers and he is responsible for the development of our world leading emulsification formula.

As part of our continual R&D we commissioned Unergy of South Africa to undertake testing of the very latest formulation. We wanted to do back to back tests of straight diesel versus diesel with our fuel conditioner “Scavenger” added. To say that we were surprised by the results, is an understatement.

This is the Executive Summary extracted from their report:

Exhaust gas concentrations were measured from the Generator operated by SulNOx Research & Development Ltd in Umkomaas, KZN. The purpose of the measurement campaign was to determine gas concentrations at a baseline (no D Scavenger additive) and again after the addition of 500 ppm D Scavenger additive.

Both test states, “Baseline” and “Additive”, had the generator operating at a constant 1510 rpm. A 2 OC rise in block temperature was noted during the “Additive” test.

Table 1 – Summary of Average Exhaust Results – “Baseline” (500ppm diesel running at 126⁰C at 1510 rpm)

TEMP Deg. C OXYGEN % CO PPM CO2 % NO PPM NOx PPM NO2 PPM SO2 PPM
112.14 18.46 633.4 1.61 136 191.7 55.9 21.7

Table 2 – Summary of Average Exhaust Results – “Additive” (500ppm diesel with the additive D Scavenger running at 128⁰C at 1510 rpm)

TEMP Deg. C OXYGEN % CO PPM CO2 % NO PPM NOx PPM NO2 PPM SO2 PPM
107.50 19.23 445.5 1.11 186 146.8 45.2 17.0

KEY:
CO: Carbon monoxide , CO2:Carbon dioxide, :NO Nitric oxide, NO2 Nitrogen Dioxide, NOx Oxides of Nitrogen, O2 Oxygen, ppm parts per million, SO2 Sulphur Dioxide

The results astonished us. A tiny amount of our product (500 ppm) resulted in a dramatic reduction of toxic emissions including a 25% reduction in NOx and a similar reduction in the harmful Sulphur Dioxide. With this product now perfected we anticipate robust demand and will initially target those companies which store large quantities of fuel in order to feed diesel generators.
