F105 is a marine fuel lubricant designed to reduce friction and wear. Its unique blend helps restore the lubricity of ultra desulfurized fuels. F105, used regularly, will reduce the wear of fuel pumps, injectors and distribution systems that occurs when low intrinsic lubricity fuels are adopted.
The “perfect” dosage should be calculated upon the result of HFRR test done ashore by a laboratory as there is no direct link between the value of the Sulphur and the lubricity capability of the fuel. Considering the average value of HFRR found in several ULS fuels (Ultra Low Sulphur) analysed by independent laboratories the dosage rate may be set between 100 and 600 ppm in the worst cases . If we adopt a dosage of 200 ppm of F105 without knowing the real HFRR value of the bunkered fuel we will for sure limitate any possible damage to the distribution system; this dosage expressed in liters is equal to 1 liter each 5 cubic meters of fuel. In any case an eventual over dosage of F105 will not cause any problems. Since the lubricity of the fuel does not depend only and/or directly to the content of sulphur, but is the result of the process of desulfurization of virgin naphtha, there is no fixed calculation for the dosage unless a specific fuel test is performed by a specialised laboratory.
