Shell undertook a comparative trial to determine the effectiveness of De-Bug Multi-Mag units …
It is evident from the results that the De-Bug device is capable of reducing the fuel degrading organisms even at high flow rates, as encountered in a service station situation.“The trial, conducted at the premises of Shell Oil New Zealand: with high existing levels of fungus and bacteria, had significantly lower fungal and bacterial counts when treated with De-Bug units … Testing
RIVO undertook a trial of De-Bug units over a period of four months in 1990.
“From the research, it is now definitely established that on the test ships GO 22 and GO 28 the contamination was controlled within one week of the installation of the De-Bug L4000 unit.”
” Further it is worth mentioning that installing the L4000 De-Bug Unit on the GO 22 increased the service life of the filters from two weeks to 14 months, while the lifetime of the injector nozzles was lengthened from 9 to 14 months.”
In all three cases, microbial contamination was reduced between 90 and 100% and then successfully controlled – Testing
Testing of Diesel Samples for Microbiological Contamination from a Truck fitted with the De-Bug Unit.
The report confirmed the overall effectiveness of the De-Bug unit in an in-situ test – treating contaminated fuel on ‘at work’ fuel system. The test determined,
” … regardless of the contamination level in the tank, the De-Bug unit successfully cleaned up the fuel system”.
During the in-situ test an average of over 90% of the fungi and yeast cells were killed. Testing
Four gas turbines used for power generation on an oil rig. These turbines burn 5 gallons per minute per engine when loaded. When a De-Bug Unit was fitted: “… filter usage cost has dropped from $8,000 per year to less than $1,000 per year. We satisfied with the appearance of the fuel we have has no unscheduled engine shutdowns due to clogged filters. The De-Bug Unit has performed as well as we were told it would …” Savings
Singapore Port Authority One Trail two trails:
Undertook a trial on three vessels involving the monitoring of fuel consumption (usage per hour).
The two vessels that were known to have higher than normal fuel consumption recorded savings of 20% and the third vessel which had normal fuel consumption returned savings of 15% Savings
