ALKEN EVEN-FLO® 910 (demulsifying Formulation) is a totally organic liquid formulation of surfactants, dispersants and corrosion inhibitors for pre-burner fuel conditioning. ALKEN EVEN-FLO® is a completely combustible, non-abrasive, non-ash-forming treatment which provides a uniform flow of homogeneous fuel to the burner for effective atomization and control of preheat temperature, with assurance of maximum combustion efficiency.
The surfactants in ALKEN EVEN-FLO® 910 provide effective dispersion of sludge and heavy hydrocarbons with separation of water so that tanks, lines, strainers and preheaters are kept free of accumulations and corrosion. The separated free water is readily drained from above ground tanks through openings equally spaced around the periphery about 2.5 inches off the bottom.
ALKEN EVEN-FLO® 910 improves combustion through its physical effect on interfacial surface tensions. Better combustion means reduced soot formation, cleaner burner nozzles and cleaner firesides. The reduction in coke formation also reduces the amount of sulfur trioxide normally formed by the catalyzing action of the coke particles. This means reduced cold end corrosion and drier fireside deposits, more easily removed by tube blowing. Water removal reduces the sodium content of the fuel by removing water soluble sodium chloride, thereby lessening the potential for sodium vanadate slag formation.

|ALKEN EVEN-FLO® 910 can be added directly to the storage tank before delivery, or it can be metered into the fill line during delivery. Either procedure will insure thorough mixing with the fuel oil. Typical dosages range from 1 gallon per 7000 gallons of fuel oil to 1 gallon per 4500 gallons of fuel oil. Dosages vary according to the grade of the fuel oil, the impurities present, and the rate of fuel turn-over.|
