Chemical reagent designed to mitigate SO3 and corrosion issues on oil-fired units
The Fireshield® chemical program includes a number of fouling and slag control agents to prevent the adverse effects of fuel contaminants such as sulfur, sodium, calcium, vanadium, potassium and zinc. These highly reflective deposits minimize heat transfer and reduce boiler efficiency.
The chemical used in Fireshield programs is added directly to the fuel oil and is specifically designed to mitigate SO3 and corrosion issues on oil fired units using No. 6 oil and heavy fuel oil. Fireshield programs have also been formulated to include combustion catalysts designed to reduce loss on ignition and improve boiler efficiency.

Fireshield programs have a proven track record of performance and are an economical option over other comparable fuel additives.
