For fuel oil fired plants


How to eliminate corrosion and plugging consistently

Pentol offers a unique way to improve the eco-efficiency of power plants: 
- keep heat transfer components clean and protected
- allow reduction of exit gas temperature by neutralizing SO3

Read our brochure PentoMag® how to inject additive directly into the fuel oil and is activate it in the flame



How to reduce ash load with a complete carbon burnout 

PentoMuls® allows the on-line production of a stable water-in-oil emulsion:  
- get a compact, short flame with a good temperature distribution
- generate much less nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulphur trioxide (SO3)

Read our brochure PentoMuls®. Learn how the blend of surfactants, dispersants and catalysts works

For coal fired plants

PentoMag® 2550

How to prevent hard and sticky slagging  

PentoMag®  2550 will be dosed as slurry by an automatic system on the coal belt:  
- transform glassy, heavy deposits (covering heat exchange tubes) into friable and easy to remove
- improve boiler availability without significant losses or longer outage periods

Read our brochure PentoMag® 2550, Learn how the micronized active slurry works

Flue Gas Conditioning

How to reduce fly ash resistance 

Pentols FGC-unit injects small quantities of sulfur trioxide into the flue gas duct:  
- keep fly ash resistivity in a good precipitator operating range
- get an economical alternative to an additional ESP that increases the whiteness of your gypsum 

Read our brochure Flue Gas Conditioning. Learn how Pentols energy-optimized system works

For diesel engines

PentoMag® 4400

How to reduce sludge and corrosion in diesel engines

PentoMag® 4400 is dosed on the filling line of the day tank or storage tank:  
- avoid deposits and corrosion which cause problems on exhaust valve seats, liners, piston rings or even on blades of turbo chargers
- increase the net calorific value of the fuel and reduce the amount of waste disposed
Read our brochure PentoMag® 4400. Learn how to the all-in-one additive increases the efficiency of your diesel engine

For gas turbines

PentoMag® 4450

How to control high temperature corrosion of gas turbines 

PentoMag® 4450 works by modifying the fusion point of combustion residuals:  
- neutralize vanadium deposits and corresponding corrosion effects
- reduce fouling in gas turbine and recovery boiler

Read our brochure PentoMag® 4450. Learn how the fuel tank additive works

For optimization (universal use)

SO3 Analyzer

How much SO3 do you generate?

Pentols portable SO3-analyzer allows the on-line monitoring and recording of emission:  
- limit acid discharges to the environment
- burn fuel in the most efficient way to minimise corrosion of the plant 
Read our brochure SO3 Monitor. Learn more about the wide range of measuring possibilities

PentoSolv 3

How to clean combustion residues at difficult spaces 

PentoSolv 3 is a powerful cleaning agent:  
- remove encrusted deposits on surfaces of cylinder heads, boiler walls, heat exchangers etc. 
- soften solid layers before washing, so that cleaning becomes easy with much better results
Read our brochure PentoSolv 3. Learn how the powerful blend of detergents works
