The company says this diesel fuel additive improves the operation of any diesel engine in extreme temperatures by improving two indicators of performance in diesel fuel, the cold filter plugging point and pour point to prevent gelling and icing.

In a third-party test performed in August, LSI Chemical says a baseline fuel was pulled from a Marathon station in Fredericktown, Ohio. After adding ArcticArmor523, the fuel’s pour point was improved from -20°F / -28.9°C to -75°F / -59.4°C and the cold filter plugging point (CFPP) was improved from -20°F / -28.9°C to -45°F / -42.8°C.

LSI Chemical says itis now offering market-ready additives, like its ArcticArmor523, as well as bringing custom lab and formulation capabilities to diesel fuel jobbers, fleets, consumers and diesel refiners.

LSI Chemical says ArcticArmor523 solubilizes paraffin nuclei as they begin to crystallize and modifies the paraffin crystal’s growth as they precipitate. This process allows fuel lines and filters to stay clear and operational even with temps down to 45°F below zero.
