|Lubrizol announces new test data that confirms additive capability to clean internal diesel injector deposits|
CLEVELAND, January 20, 2011 – The Lubrizol Corporation (NYSE:LZ) today announces new data demonstrating that its Lubrizol® 9040 Zer0™ Series of deposit control additives cleans internal diesel injector deposits, commonly referred to as IDID. While previous XUD9 and DW10 testing demonstrates the ability of Lubrizol 9040 Zer0 Series to clean nozzle coking deposits on diesel fuel injectors and protect against power loss, including in the latest common rail diesel fuel systems, the new engine test data illustrates how the product, at highly competitive treat rates, also performs deeper inside the injector to effectively clean IDID.
"Today, OEMs are faced with some very real challenges that must be addressed—and additives must deliver," continued Corkwell. "Whether formulated in a premium diesel fuel or applied through a bottle directly to the fuel tank, fuel additives must not only help to keep injector nozzles clean, but must also be effective cleaning deep inside the injector, where deposit control is now just as critical."
