Biobor® JF has been the most widely used and recommended fuel biocide and lubricity additive for over 56 years. Explicitly recommended by numerous major diesel engine manufacturers, Biobor JF will eliminate and prevent microbial growth in your fuel and dramatically increase the life of your filters. Biobor JF adds lubricity to ULSD, protecting your injectors and fuel pumps while preventing corrosion. For the life of your engine and fuel quality, trust Biobor JF, the worldwide standard since 1965.
Why use Biobor JF?
Biobor JF has been the worldwide standard for treating microbial growth in fuel since 1965. Initially developed for commercial and military aviation, Biobor JF has provided a track record of proven reliability and effectiveness in numerous diesel-powered industries for over 56 years. To add to this impressive pedigree, Biobor JF is the only diesel biocide recommended by many of the major diesel engine manufacturers across the globe.
When discussing issues in diesel fuel, microbial growth is widely known as the most common reason for fuel-related engine failure. Inherently, diesel fuel and fuel tanks tend to accumulate water by tank condensation, entrained water from fuel delivery, or just receiving a bad batch of fuel. To compound this issue, today’s ULSD can successfully carry much higher concentrations of water, providing a breeding ground for HUM Bugs (or Hydrocarbon Utilizing Micro-organisms). Hum bugs live in a fuel tank's water phase and feed off the fuel developing dark, slimy gel-like mats. As these colonies of bacteria and fungi grow (potentially doubling every 20 minutes), they can quickly clog fuel filters and plug injectors, leading to excessive sludge accumulation. Additionally, their waste products are one of the leading causes of corrosion in fuel tanks and metal components. With the continued use of Biobor JF, microbial growth will be eliminated from the fuel system leading to a sterile fuel system, extending the life of fuel filters, and preventing corrosion issues.
Lubricity in Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel:
Since the introduction of ULSD, engine manufacturers have recognized and encouraged the need for additional lubrication in today’s diesel fuels. Due to the refining process necessary to reduce sulfur levels, the natural lubrication properties of diesel fuel have been greatly reduced. Essential to the protection and life of injection systems and fuel pumps, diesel engine owners see a detrimental effect on these systems. Biobor JF has been proven to restore these lubricity levels, exceeding ASTM standards and protecting injectors and pumps from premature wear. (ASTM-D6079 HFRR- engine manufacturer and industry-standard testing).
Solve the two most common issues engine owners face with the one product used by engine manufacturers, commercial airlines, the US Military, and diesel vessel operators, Biobor JF.
