Bellicide protects the investment of both stored fuels and the equipment they go in.
Unfortunately, stored fuels tend to develop water accumulation, which leads to the growth and flourishing of harmful microbes.
Microbial contamination in a fuel tank is bad news because the microbes (bacteria and fungi) break down the fuel, ruining expensive fuel investments.
Microbial colonies plug fuel filters
Microbes give off acidic byproducts which destroy fuel quality
Microbial byproducts contribute to expensive tank corrosion
Not only that, but once they are in fuel tanks, microbes are nearly impossible to get rid of. Simply removing accumulated water is not usually enough to solve the problem. Until now!
Bellicideeliminates and prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi in finished fuels while preventing their biodegradation. Bellicide is essential for keeping stored fuels fresh and microbe-free!
Bellicide is used to eliminate and prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi (microbes) in finished fuels such as diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, and Bunker C fuel oil. Bellicide is also used to prevent the biodegradation (reduction of fuel quality caused by microbes) of crude, refined and feedstock oils and fats (e.g. poultry, soybean, aromatic, paraffinic, naphthenic) during storage.
Benefits of Bellicide Biocide Treatment
Bellicide knocks out microbial fuel problems:
Broad-spectrum: kills bacteria, fungi, and algae
Active in both phases of the system - partitions into both fuel and water
Fast Acting: 100% bacterial kill in just a few hours
Long-Lasting: Maintains a 100% kill rate for up to four weeks
Comparative Kill Study Testing
Bellicide was tested in the laboratory in kill studies to compare its effectiveness compared to three other leading fuel microbicides.
The microorganisms used in the study were the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and the fungus Hormoconis resinae, both of which are widely found in fuel, grow quickly in large numbers, and multiply well both in water and at the fuel-water interface.
The results of the study show Bellicide providing excellent results at the minimum recommended dose after both one and four weeks.
Bellicide eliminates existing microbial colonies in contaminated systems with a treat rate of just 2.5 fluid ounces per 100 gallons of fuel (200 ppm) or half an ounce per 20 gallons of fuel.
To maintain a microbe-free system environment (maintenance dosage), Bellicide can be added at a treat rate of just 1.25 fluid ounces per 100 gallons of fuel (100 ppm) or half an ounce per 40 gallons of fuel.
At the maintenance dose of 1.25 ounces per 100 gallons, Bellicide imparts a minimum amount of sulfur to the fuel.
