This is the only fuel savings device that proved over 10% fuel savings on a controlled independent SAE J1321 Fuel Consumption Test. There are many products on the market that claim to save fuel – but none of them that we’ve seen can come even close to comparing to the results UltraBurn can provide. At an improved fuel efficiency of 10.6% on-road and 15.3% off-road, it’s hard to top. Furthermore, the technology has been vetted for over 10 years, the system is durable to withstand harsh environments, and the technology makes sense.
How does the UtlraBurn work?
UltraBurn injects nano-sized catalytic 0particles into the air intake over an extended period of time to improve the fuel burn thereby improving fuel efficiency and reducing emission output levels.
How much can one expect to save?
This is the ONLY Pre-Combustion emissions reduction system. The benefit of utilizing this technology pre-combustion is that we also get improved fuel savings. On-road equipment on average will save 10.6% where off-road equipment will save an average of 15.3%. The primary reason for the difference is the OTR engines have tighter emissions controls that negate some of the impact.
How much is the emissions improved?
The biggest improvement is in reduced soot or black smoke coming out of the exhaust stack. Countless opacity tests have been conducted before and after the UltraBurn Catalyst System has been installed – with averages just over 50% reduction. We also see a drop in HC, NOx as well as others.
How much does the Catalyst cost?
The costs vary but it’s safe to say that the average cost of the catalyst is about 2-3% of ones fuel cost. That means for off-road equipment saving 15%, they can expect to yield a net savings of 12-13% of their fuel bill using UltraBurn.
How often is the Catalyst Bottle changed?
Catalyst Bottle changes are pegged to your Preventative Maintenance (PM) Cycle. So, if you’re PM is 250 hours, you’d use a 250 hour Catalyst bottle.
Will there be Catalyst still in the bottle when its time to change the bottle?
YES – there are two main components to a Catalyst Bottle. 1) the Catalyst particles and 2) the suspension liquid to hold the Catalyst in suspension.
Why was this technology used to supply the Catalyst to the engine?
It isn’t easy to get the right amount of the Catalyst into the engine over an extended period of time. Using what’s called bubble fraction, we’re able to slowly remove sub-micron particles from the liquid over an extended period of time. It also allows us to adjust volumes and costs to match customer needs given their equipment.
Can I refill my Catalyst Bottles?
NO – Catalyst bottles cannot be refilled. This is because the suspension solution will not react properly with fresh new Catalyst solution. Our main objective is to create a safe and sustainable methodology of improving efficiency levels for companies.
Is there a break-in period?
YES – typical break in periods last from 25 – 200 hours with most ranges between 50-100 hours.
What happens if I don’t change a catalyst bottle on time?
Virtually nothing. We don’t tap into the ECM so this won’t impede performance of the engine. Basically if a bottle isn’t changed, the engine will revert back to its original state before the system was installed.
What if I use a non-approved Catalyst in my Catalyst System?
Using any non-approved Catalyst will void all warranties and remove any liability from product suppliers, installers or manufacturers. This is highly discouraged as injecting improper Catalyst into your engine can be hazardous.
What is the shelf life of Catalyst?
The shelf life of Catalyst bottle is 1 year from date of manufacture. If you’re unsure, each bottle is bar-coded. You can contact your distributor with the bar code and they can get you the manufacture date.
Are there storage restrictions?
Yes – please store all Catalyst in a cool dark place. Heat above 100 degrees Fahrenheit or high amounts of sunlight can damage your Catalyst bottle.
How long does installation take?
Installing UltraBurn Catalyst System is easy. A typical installation should take 2-3 hours. There are three steps – mounting the delivery system, running the air intake feed and connecting the electrical.
What is a Combustion Catalyst System?
A Combustion Catalyst System (CCS) is a scientifically developed system that injects platinum catalyst into a diesel engine through the air intake of a naturally aspirated or turbo charged engine. The catalyst enables a more complete burn of the fuel in the combustion chamber during the power stroke. A more complete burn in the power stroke enables the engine to run more efficiently.
Is the UltraBurn® CCS system a fuel additive?
No, it is not a fuel additive. The UltraBurn® CCS system injects the catalyst into the air stream through the air intake. Once in the combustion chamber, the air, catalyst and fuel are blended to optimize combustion where it is most important.
Will the UltraBurn® CCS products void my engine warranty?.
No, installing an aftermarket product will not void a vehicle’s warranty. If, however, the after-market product were proven to be the cause of engine or component damage, this damage would not be covered under warranty and would be the responsibility of the after-market manufacturer. This applies to all non-Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) after-market products such as oil filters, starters, fuel filters, and the UltraBurn® CCS system. For more information see the Code of Federal Regulations for the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (cite: 16CFR700.10 – Sec. 700.10 Sec. 102 (c))
How long does it take to replace the Catalyst Bottle?
This process should take 5 minutes or less.
Is it important to write the date and/or equipment hours on the bottle?
YES – we find it very useful to have that information on every bottle. It allows you to double check when a Catalyst bottle has or hasnot been changed. We highly recommend this as a safeguard allowing decision makers to double check systems and project product needs.
