GOVERNMENT ORDERS BROQUET : Following many years of success in reducing fuel consumption for both private and business customers in the French Overseas Territory of New Caledonia, Broquet Distributor for the Pacific Region, Vincent Lorenzini has now received their first order to equip the Government’s fleet of vehicles.
10,000 CLUB USERS : Following the CSMA’s successful independent testing of the Broquet product which validated it’s claims, 10,000 + members of the UK’s Civil Service Motoring Association went on to puchase Broquet as recently testified to by David Arnold, previous Editor of their magazine, Motoring & Leisure.
MINE COMPANY SUCCESS : Positive results on fuel saving and exhaust emissions
reduction have been measured across eleven different engines
owned by RHT Mines.
Recently, tin producer and smelter Malaysia Smelting
Corporation (MSC) has carried out field trials using the tin fuel catalysts, supplied by Broquet International, UK, on 11 engines at its Rahman Hydraulic Tin Mine (RHT Mine), in
Malaysia. The specially formulated tin alloy pellets were either added into a fuel tank or placed inside a fuel line cartridge. As they are normally a once-only treatment, they can last for the lifetime of the engine.
Fuel consumption was measured over a 6 month baseline and then over 6 months with the catalysts fitted. Exhaust emissions were measured by Acumen Scientific Sdn Bhd, of Penang, Malaysia. The tests included pick-up trucks, a cargo truck, tipper truck, electrical generator, large static diesel engine, a Jeep and a Volvo Sedan car. Results in all eleven vehicles were positive. Fuel savings in diesel engines were 4% – 8% and in petrol 5% – 8%. Emissions of CO, NOx and SO2 were reduced by between 12% – 89%. For actual figures see test data on pdf attachment link below.
9% SAVINGS FOR FISHING FLEET
After over 18 months of successful testing on vessels
belonging to a major fishing company in Lima, Peru,
Broquet received an order to supply fuel saving devices for
installation on the main and auxiliary engines of over 60
trawlers with engines ranging in size from 450 HP to
2,500HP. Subsequent orders have increased this figure
to 93. Apart from having one of the largest fishing fleets in
South America, the customer is also a major fish oil and
fishmeal producing company with 16 Processing Plants.
As a result of the success in reducing fuel consumption on the vessels main engines, Broquet has now also supplied units to over 60 generators and pumps.
Fuel savings of up to 9% have also been accompanied by reductions in stack emissions and stack temperatures. Therefore fitting Broquet has not only brought significant savings on fuel costs, but also important reductions in maintenance costs, with the virtual elimination of carbon deposits within the engine. Environmental objectives are also being met with a 2 tonne reduction in CO2 for every tonne of fuel saved.
These are the latest in a series of recent trials coordinated by ITRI around the world. They confirm
data that ITRI has collated from more than 70 other tests carried out over several decades.
