Dehazer is a fuel additive which removes water from gasoline, diesel fuels, and protects engine against corrosion. Dehazer is a fuel additive which reduces haze formation and improves fuel quality in gasoline and diesel. Haze or entrained water, in diesel fuel can occur as a result of processing, transportation and seasonal temperature changes. Dehazers are designed to facilitate the combination of vary small water droplets into larger droplets, which then separate from the fuel by gravity. Dehazer treatment is needed if the fuel becomes hazy due to the presence of finely dispersed droplets of water. Contamination with water occurs at any stage, as the fuel passes from the refinery and through the distribution network until it reaches the vehicle tank. Dehazers work by breaking water micro emulsions, ensuring brightness and clarity of the product. They also improve water tolerance of additives. Dehazers have unique and specific formulations developed to ensure effective solutions without side effects, and they contain no metals. Dehazers' additives mix with hazy fuel uniformly either in equipment fuel tanks or in bulk fuel tank areas. Water suspended in diesel fuel causes corrosion and malfunction of engine
Water is commonly found in fuels and small amounts of "soluble" water in the order of 50 to 100 ppm may remain in fuels. This type of water is present as a true solution and will not separate due to gravity. Greater quantities of water (up to 5,000 ppm or higher) are introduced through contamination during marine transportation, and exist as "emulsified" water droplets. These emulsified water droplets will separate over time by gravity, but the settling rate is likely to be extremely slow and is influenced the amount of physical mixing and by the degree of emulsification.
Haze and emulsions mean that water will be carried throughout fuel distribution system, and result in bacterial, and fungal contaminations. Wet fuel is corrosive to fuel tank internals and can lead to further fuel contaminations. Allowing hazy fuel to clarify by natural settling is time consuming, and requires lot of product storage capacity. However, these problems can be efficiently overcome by treating the fuel with a chemical "dehazer".
The worldwide increase in the number of vehicles has resulted in the rising demand of the dehazer market. The gasoline or diesel fuels are used to run most of the industrial plants across the globe resulting in increase in demand for fuel additives for better efficiency. Various fuel additives are manufactured for automotive, industrial, aerospace and commercial sectors. This factor would drive the dehazer market. Demand for Alternate Fuel Vehicles (AFVs) is estimated to be a restraining factor for growth of dehazer market. These vehicles may offer a substitute for gasoline and diesel vehicles and may amount to a considerable share of the automobile market in the coming years.
On geography basis, dehazer market is categorized as Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and Middle-East and Africa. North America dominates the global dehazer market. Asia-Pacific is expected to boost the market in the next few years. The growing demand for automobiles, its rising production and increasing traffic are factors that will lead to growth of the dehazer market in the Asia-Pacific region.
Key operators operating in dehazer market are Innospec Fuel Specialties, Bakers Hughes Incorporated, BASF, Dorf Ketal, and Clariant.
