I asked for Soltron to comment on this thread and this is there reply:
Soltron's enzymes first of all work in the dark and are de-activated by ultra violet light - thus the warning on the label "keep out of sunlight"!
With regards Cladisporium Resigne - the diesel bug that is not uncommon in the marine environment, Soltron works differently to the normal biocide. It does not kill the microbes, it simply breaks them down sufficiently to pass through the fuel filters and be burnt off in the combustion process. This will eliminate the diesel bug after a number of treatments (a couple of tanks of fuel through the engine). Soltron will not only clean the tank, it will clean the injectors, the fuel line, the whole system without the need of taking the tanks out. Lubricity is increased as well as the cetane value of the fuel giving better ignition/combustion characteristics as well as reducing smoke particulates.
Depsol is no longer distributing for us. Please look at our web page www.soltron.co.uk
for further details.
Safe "environmental" sailing with Soltron.
