Features & Advantages
Simply add to your existing tanks dosing at 1:3,000 (30 ml per 100 litre fuel), of the fuel thus ensuring that all the troublesome bacteria and fungi are destroyed.
Refuelling Dose to Protect Clean Fuel System
Add to fuel tanks prior to refuelling use at 1:10,000 (10 ml per 100 litre), ensure that fuel tanks are treated whenever they are topped up.
Bunker Fuel Storage
All fuel tanks, including bunker fuel storage tanks that are used for storing Distillates - Marine Gas Oil (MGO), Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD) and Residual Fuels will contain some water.
After production by the oil refinery, as the newly refined fuel cools, water solubility decreases. Consequently dissolved water begins to condense as fuel is cooling in refinery storage tanks. The cooling process continues during transport. As waters specific gravity is greater than that of fuels, as dissolved water condenses it tends to drop out of the petroleum product, accumulating in tank bottoms and in pipeline low-points.
Fuel can be stored for a long time before sale and this fuel will contain a certain amount of water. Biological Diesel (FAME) especially has a tendency to hold more water compared to conventional MGO. Water provides the ideal environment for microbial growth and contamination issues which have a serious impact on fuel quality and consistency.
Thus the bunker suppliers and ships owners both face technical challenges, since all fuels especially low sulphur can exhibit specific issues which cause problems in operation.
The stored fuel also absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, this water leads to microbial contamination and microbial fuel bug problem. Fuel tanks can accumulate as much as 0.1% water (based on the type and volume of fuel) as a result of condensation during long-term storage. At ports in hot countries this can especially be the case.
In bunkering services during long term storage the quality of fuel can be severely affected due to the growth of harmful microbes, moulds, fungi and bacteria. This microbial attack leads to fuel degradation, reducing fuel lubricity as fuel additives are broken down by the harmful microbes.
For the bunker suppliers who want to protect their hefty fuel investment, many of these issues can be solved by Hydra FuelPlus Biocide which is an Excellent Fuel Biocide Additive! It has proven to be the economic solution for improving the quality of fuel and its properties.
Hydra FuelPlus Biocide knocks out harmful microbes in Marine Fuels. Kills microbes completely within 24 hours, keeps protecting the treated fuel for over 6 months.
Hydra FuelPlus Biocide is based upon dual isothiazolone chemistry and technology that has been proven to be highly effective against microbial growth for over 25 years. Isothiazolones are registered under the ECHA European Biocides Directive, REACH and by the EPA in the USA.
All of our products are manufactured to the highest specifications in our UK plant, which is accredited to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
When dosed appropriately, Hydra FuelPlus Biocide is extremely effective for both the decontamination of heavily fouled fuel systems and the prevention of future microbial spoilage. Biocide usage maintains the integrity of fuels at all points during storage, distribution, and usage. Hydra FuelPlus Biocide, preserves valuable fuel systems to prevent machine malfunction, engine failures, microbial induced corrosion, and impaired water removal from storage tanks while protecting the fuel performance properties as well as specifications such as colour, heat of combustion, pour point, and cloud point.
Note:- Prevents Fuel Starvation Damage To Injectors And Engines.

Review by Daniel H
I bought this to treat my Land Rover, and other vehicles on our farm. Only time will tell the effectiveness in my application, but the delivery and everything else was spot on. It treats literally thousands of litres of diesel.
Essential for long term diesel fuel storage
Review by Nicholas
I heard a lot about this product. To get more information I contacted Hydra and learned from a professional how this product will stabilize diesel fuel for many, many years. It works. It prevents microbial growth, prevents gelling, and keeps the fuel stable and fresh for years.
