Features & Advantages
Shock Dosage dilution rate: 1:3,000 i.e., 30 ml of biocide per 100 litres of fuel. Will ensure that all the problematic bacteria, mould and fungi are eliminated.
Refuelling Dose to Protect Clean Fuel System
Refuelling dosage dilution rate: 1:10,000 i.e., 10 ml of biocide per 100 litres of fuel. Treat fuel tanks every time it is topped up.
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 refinery process, water solubility of the freshly refined fuel decreases as it cools down. Consequently, water that was initially dissolved in the fuel begins to drop out with the drop in fuel temperature. The fuel continues cooling during transport. Thus, water continues to accumulate finally settling at tank bottoms and low-points in the pipe-line as fuel’s specific gravity is lesser than that of water.
Fuel can be left in storage for a long time before it is either utilised or sold will inevitably contain some amount water. Biological Diesel (FAME) especially has a tendency to attract and hold more when compared to regular MGO. Water bottom in fuel storages provides a suitable environment microbes to grow and reproduce. This results to microbial contamination of the fuel system which can cause a depreciation in fuel quality and consistency.
Thus, both the bunker suppliers and ship owners face technical challenges, as all fuels, especially low sulphur can display definite issues which can lead to serious complications 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. This can especially be the case at ports in hot countries.
During long term storage in bunkering services, the quality of fuel can be seriously 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 customers 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 economical 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 up to 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 appropriately dosed, Hydra FuelPlus Biocide is highly efficient in eliminating heavy microbial infestation from your fuel system and also preventing any future infestation. Biocide usage, maintains the integrity of fuels at all points during storage, distribution, and usage. Hydra FuelPlus Biocide, take cares of the fuel system by preventing engine failures, machine malfunction, microbial induced corrosion, and impaired water removal from storage tanks. It also preserves the fuel performance properties as well as specifications such as heat of combustion, colour, pour point and cloud point.
Note: Prevents fuel starvation damage to injectors and engines.

Only treatment that I know works
Review by Spencer
A thousand gallon underground fuel tank that we have develops bacterial growth over summer which we have to clean every year before we fill it for the winter. Our furnace man used to charge us really highly for cleaning the tank, until I discovered what he was actually using. It was Hydra FuelPlus Biocide! Excellent product! Now I get it from Hydra each year and save a bundle. It works, and I would be at a loss if I couldn't get it.
