2 Ethyl Hexyl Nitrate (2EHN)
2EHN is a Cetane booster in diesel. The Cetane Number of diesel fuel is a measure of its 'ignition quality'. High Cetane Number diesel fuels offer a variety of important engine performance and environmental benefits.
The use of Cetane Number Improvers (CNI) enables the ignition quality of distillate stocks to be simply and economically increased. They provide a direct and accessible means to upgrade diesel fuel performance.
The additives increase the Cetane Number of distillate fuels by improving fuel ignition characteristics in the combustion chamber during the compression stroke.
- Shortened ignition delay
- Improved cold start
- Reduced white smoke during warm up
- Reduced emissions (HC, CO, NOx and PM)
- Reduced engine noise
- Reduced fuel consumption
