Oxytane Marine – an Introduction

Achieving substantial fuel economy and reducing toxic emissions.

Oxytane® has been shown to substantially reduce fuel consumption and emissions on many types of engines and generators. It will significantly enhance the ability of companies operating in the marine industry to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, thereby making achieving Net Zero a far more realistic proposition.

“…for the record, we now are a customer and would be more than happy to recommend Oxytane®… [we received a] 32% total increase in fuel economy when compared to the same operating conditions without Oxytane®.”

- W. de Rhoodes Ship captain of the N35 (Nohab Type F30 and F31 main ship engines).

What is Oxytane®?

Oxytane® is designed and chemically engineered as a fuel treatment to substantially decrease fuel consumption and toxic emissions.

How it works?

Oxytane succeeds by improving the fuel’s natural solvency properties,
enhancing the fuel lubricity when in the engine and reducing the fuel’s surface
tension at a chemical level. This leads to an improved and cleaner fuel burn.
All manufacturers recommend using EN 590 fuel products as standard for engine operation, safety, and emissions.

Oxytane® also has a D-975 certificate issued by Bureau Veritas. These certificates are the same certificates issued for diesel fuel Worldwide.

Benefits of using Oxytane®?

Save on Fuel
Oxytane® is expected to reduce fuel costs by a minimum of 25%. In a recent test on the N35 ship, increased fuel efficiency of 32% was achieved on the ship’s main engine.

Reduced Toxic Emissions
Oxytane® has proved to reduce emissions in
multiple engine types by at least 25%. The fuel efficiency gained reduces fuel burned, resulting in a reduction of emissions produced.

Reduced Engine Noise and Vibration
Oxytane® treated fuel result in engines performing more efficiently thereby reducing the occurrence of mechanical failure with the added benefit of reduced maintenance costs. Vibration and noise levels are also significantly reduced whilst an engine is running.

Enhanced Engine Performance
Oxytane® protects the engine by reducing carbon build-up in the combustion chamber. This results in a smoother, more responsive throttle with
concurrent reduction in smoke generated, Increased torque and increased horsepower.

Fuel Economy on Main Engines

“On the 2 main Nohab diesel ship engines that produce a combined 6120HP with 200kh, a very impressive 27% increase in fuel economy was recorded from the day tank of 16m3 of fuel that feeds into the main propulsion engines operating at a steady 55% load across both engines. On day 2, the main engines were operated at an increased load of 75% which produced an additional increase in fuel economy of a further 5% resulting in a 32% total increase in fuel economy when compared to the same operating conditions without Oxytane®.”

- W. de Rhoodes Ship captain of the N35

Fuel Economy on the Onboard Generators

“Testing on the onboard generators, we observed a consistent steady increase in fuel economy… … increased to 46% economy when the load on the engine was increased to 75% of its capacity. It was apparent that Oxytane® performed more efficiently when the onboard generators were laboured.”

- W. de Rhoodes Ship captain of the N35

Engine Noise and Vibration

“What was also noticeable was the considerable noise reduction after the first 10 to 15 minutes once Oxytane® was added into the fuel tank. A reduction in vibration was also noticed as we were asked to take note of these aspects.”

Other Observations - Emissions

“… smoke from the primary exhaust stack changed from a dark black smoke to a much lighter grey / white coloured smoke which is a clear visual indication [that] Oxytane® was having a noticeable impact on emissions.”
