Frequently Asked Questions and Answers.
This is the only fuel savings device that proved over 10% fuel savings on a controlled independent SAE J1321 Fuel Consumption Test. There are many products on the market that claim to save fuel – but none of them that we’ve seen can come even close to comparing to the results UltraBurn can provide. At an improved fuel efficiency of 10.6% on-road and 15.3% off-road, it’s hard to top. Furthermore, the technology has been vetted for over 10 years, the system is durable to withstand harsh environments, and the technology makes sense.
UltraBurn injects nano-sized catalytic 0particles into the air intake over an extended period of time to improve the fuel burn thereby improving fuel efficiency and reducing emission output levels.
This is the ONLY Pre-Combustion emissions reduction system. The benefit of utilizing this technology pre-combustion is that we also get improved fuel savings. On-road equipment on average will save 10.6% where off-road equipment will save an average of 15.3%. The primary reason for the difference is the OTR engines have tighter emissions controls that negate some of the impact.
The biggest improvement is in reduced soot or black smoke coming out of the exhaust stack. Countless opacity tests have been conducted before and after the UltraBurn Catalyst System has been installed – with averages just over 50% reduction. We also see a drop in HC, NOx as well as others.
The costs vary but it’s safe to say that the average cost of the catalyst is about 2-3% of ones fuel cost. That means for off-road equipment saving 15%, they can expect to yield a net savings of 12-13% of their fuel bill using UltraBurn.
Catalyst Bottle changes are pegged to your Preventative Maintenance (PM) Cycle. So, if you’re PM is 250 hours, you’d use a 250 hour Catalyst bottle.
YES – there are two main components to a Catalyst Bottle. 1) the Catalyst particles and 2) the suspension liquid to hold the Catalyst in suspension.
It isn’t easy to get the right amount of the Catalyst into the engine over an extended period of time. Using what’s called bubble fraction, we’re able to slowly remove sub-micron particles from the liquid over an extended period of time. It also allows us to adjust volumes and costs to match customer needs given their equipment.
NO – Catalyst bottles cannot be refilled. This is because the suspension solution will not react properly with fresh new Catalyst solution. Our main objective is to create a safe and sustainable methodology of improving efficiency levels for companies.
YES – typical break in periods last from 25 – 200 hours with most ranges between 50-100 hours.
No, it is not a fuel additive. The UltraBurn® CCS system injects the catalyst into the air stream through the air intake. Once in the combustion chamber, the air, catalyst and fuel are blended to optimize combustion where it is most important.
This process should take 5 minutes or less.
YES – we find it very useful to have that information on every bottle. It allows you to double check when a Catalyst bottle has or hasnot been changed. We highly recommend this as a safeguard allowing decision makers to double check systems and project product needs.
