Satacen® 3 Fuel Borne Catalyst is the most popular, safe to handle, and widely respected Fuel Borne Catalyst fluid for Diesel Particulate Filters for the London Low Emission Zone 2012 and beyond.

Also available for your fleet purchasing - cost effective 28 litre handy barrels (please enquire)

Recommended for use by many Transport for London (TFL) Approved suppliers including

  • Eminox FBC
  • Pirelli Feelpure + Pirelli Feelpure AR – (requires dilution or ECU parameter change)
  • Adastra/ AstraVT FBC
  • Emicon FBC
  • Dinex DISIC (non-catalysed)
  • PURItech DAS Type C - FBC
  • HJS (Fuel Borne Catalyst Systems)

Diesel Particulate Filters or Soot Filters are a highly efficient solution for controlling soot particle emissions to allow compliance with the London Low Emission Zone.

Diesel Particulate Filters typically reduce the number of ultrafine soot particles emitted from the tailpipe by between 99.0% and 99.9% - bringing exhaust gases up to very high air quality levels, allowing penalty/tariff free entry into the London Low Emission Zone.

However, these filters will only remain efficient if the trapped soot can be disposed of during normal engine operation. If this does not occur regularly the filter will clog. This increases the backpressure from the exhaust and will ultimately prevent the engine running.

Although there are a number of methods for regenerating a particulate filter, one of the most widely utilised and most cost-effective is to use a fuel borne catalyst. A fuel borne catalyst works by reducing the ignition temperature of the trapped soot, typically by more than 200°C. Typical vehicle temperature profiles can thus have comparatively short intervals circa 400°C for successful operation.

Satacen® 3 Fuel Borne Catalyst ensures complete and rapid filter regeneration by pre-catalysing the soot formed during combustion, with tiny particles of iron oxide. This ensures that any soot trapped in the filter will burn off at the lower temperatures typically encountered during normal engine operation. The filter is therefore regenerated during everyday driving without having to worry about filter clogging or damage. The cost and inconvenience associated with frequent filter removal and specialist cleaning can therefore be kept to a minimum.

Eminox FBC (abridged extract)

‘The Eminox Fuel Borne Catalyst (FBC) System is one of the leading diesel particulate filter systems ....... Our system uses Satacen® fuel borne catalyst additive, which is stored in a separate tank on the vehicle and dosed in precise amounts directly into the fuel system. This intelligent dosing system makes the system extremely cost effective to operate. Continued use of Satacen has also been proven to prolong the performance of engine components and keep them running at optimum performance. As the catalyst is added to the fuel, there is no catalyst section in the exhaust itself, making our systems compact and able to fit into tight space constraints’

‘Satacen® is a fuel additive developed by the Innospec Inc., one of the worlds leading fuel treatment specialists. Without Satacen®, the system will not function correctly and excessive soot will build up in the filter. This will have an adverse effect on fuel consumption and over prolonged periods could cause damage to engine components.

  • Only Satacen® and no other additive should be used in the FBC system.
  • The vehicle should not be driven if the Satacen® tank is allowed to run dry.
  • The FBC system will require priming if the Satacen® storage tank is allowed to run dry or the injector system is repaired or replaced.’
Pirelli camFBC (abridged extract- Pirelli service information)

‘If a vehicle equipped with the system Pirelli Feelpure or Pirelli Feelpure AR and has to function for a long time in an environment with temperature below -15°C, Pirelli Eco Technology recommends the use of Satacen® 3 additive, instead of CAM FBC. Satacen®3 ...... can be employed up to -39°C.

Optimum dosing ratio for Satacen® 3 is 0,5 liter to 1000 liters of fuel: it is different from the one of Pirelli CAM FBC (1,5 liters to 1000 liters of diesel)’

Pirelli DPF systems are installed to consume Pirelli CAM FBC additive from new (please see other items). However Satacen® 3 has been formally approved by the manufacturer, Pirelli Eco Technology, for demanding applications. Prior to using SATACEN 3 to replace Pirelli CAM FBC however it is IMPORTANT to call us. Dosing ratios of the 2 products are very different. Satacen® 3 can SAVE you money. Use 1 Litre of SATACEN 3, equivalent to 3 litres Pirelli CAM FBC. Product dilution or Pirelli ECU parameter change MUST be performed prior to use in Pirelli Feelpure systems.

Please enquire for larger quantity or bulk purchase pricing. We at ButlerTechnik are specialists in the supply, maintenance and repair of commercial vehicle Diesel Particulate filters. If you are unsure of your requirements please call prior to purchase. Satacen 3 FBC fuel additive as listed is recommended for many Fuel Borne Catalyst systems to allow for correct function.
