Since early 1993 S.I.T GmbH is engaged with the development and marketing of the meanwhile worldwide famous CD92™ Fuel ConditioningDevices for the extensive fuel treatment in navigation and industry. Based on own patents, these units have been continuously improved over the years, also because of the close cooperation with the operating entities. The great variety of models developed thereby offers suitable units for every kind of application. But the basic idea for the development goes back even further into the past. Already in the beginning of the eighties the founders of S.I.T GmbH had engaged themselves with the problem of fuel treatment. An area which even today is regarded as fairly complicated, cost-intensive, and above all, from the ecopolitical point of view, as not harmless. The fundamental necessity for the treatment of fuel, especially with today's customary heavy oils, already exists for a long time, and will continue to exist. But with the first practical employments of the CD92™ technology, it quickly turned out that the usual expenditure could now be considerably reduced, which not only helps saving running costs, but makes the entire engine operation more safe and ecologically more convenient.
Meanwhile the CD-WiDE™ method for the development of stable water-in-diesel oil emulsions is regarded as a unique feature. With this method it is now and in future possible for every shipowner to operate his engines according to the latest limiting values for emissions like IMO MARPOL Annex VI - NOx-technical code, without having to carry out significant and expensive modifications to the ship engines, or even to exchange them. The respective IAPP/EIAPP certification can be issued by classification societies like Lloyd´s Register or ABS. The CD-WiDE™ method can be retrofitted quickly and without problems to every diesel engine and stationary power plant. An innovation which creates new opportunities, and which can enable the owners of older vessels to profit from the all-inclusive environmental charges planned in many countries, and which already have been partly established (Sweden, Norway etc.).
