Fuel Additives and Testing for contaminated fuel
Bacterial infections in fuel lead Biomass sludge to form, causing filters to clog and tank pitting. The knock-on impact is systems stalling and if left untreated, the result is often permanent damage to fuel systems, as well as fuel being unusable. Replacing systems and fuel is then obviously a costly event that could have been avoided.
For a permanant solution to the problem of fuel infection from Bacteria, sediment and water, we recommend our Internationally recognised WASP Fuel Cleaning Systems. Our W-PFS range is a life line for back up power within the data centre, medical, agriculture and marine industries.

WASP® BIOKEM SP15 is a concentrated effective biocide/fungicide designed for all fuel oils. Rapidly destroys micro-organisms and provides long term protection against further infection.

You will probably first notice you have a bacterial infection in your fuel when you see foreign matter floating on top or mixed in with the fuel.
Your boat or equipment using the fuel may not be running efficiently.
There are hundreds of various forms of bacterial infection which can live and multiple in fuel and can be all different forms, sizes, shapes and colours, from an earthy brown to luminous green.
The effectiveness of WASP® BIOKEM SP15 has been proven over a number of years and it has extensive approvals endorsing its use in a wide range of fuel types.
It combines exceptional activity with broad spectrum performance, consequently it is effective at very low use levels against all commonly occurring fuel contaminates (bacteria, fungi and yeast). WASP® BIOKEM SP15 is a high performance antimicrobial agent developed specifically to combat problems of microbial contamination and spoilage in hydrocarbon fuels.
In 2011 it was entered into two magazine group tests, the results speak for themselves.
Yes, and we suggest doing so to avoid the costly expense of finding out about the infection when it is too late to be treated resulting in the need to replace storage equipment and your stored fuel.
Prevention is better than cure!
WASP® BIOKEM SP15 will kill live bacteria but to remove it completely, you will need to filter out the bacteria which is already in your fuel. It is worth noting other similar products claim to remove existing infections. While the majority of similar products may break down the infection (including BIOKEM), and prevent further infection, none will completely remove the matter already there. If you intend to use BIOKEM for a boat, it may already have a filter which can be run to clean out the matter.
WASP® BIOKEM SP15 should be dosed as follows (based on the 250ml bottle size)
|Contamination (dose ratio)||5L bottle treats||250ml bottle treats||50ml bottle treats|
|Preventative (10000:1)||50000 litres of fuel||2500 litres of fuel||500 litres of fuel|
|Moderate (5000:1)||25000 litres of fuel||1250 litres of fuel||250 litres of fuel|
|Heavy (3000:1)||15000 litres of fuel||750 litres of fuel||150 litres of fuel|
Treat as per table above and re-treat periodically at 5000:1 to 10000:1 to control re-infection. Best results are obtained if the system can be re-circulated to fully disperse the Biocide. When dosing with WASP® BIOKEM SP15, ALWAYS mix the required dose with a greater quantity of fuel BEFORE adding to the fuel tank. This ensures a quick and efficient dilution with the infected fuel. For bio-diesel we recommend double-dosing, so a 250ml bottle is enough to treat 375 litres of fuel with heavy contamination (1500:1).
