In order to accelerate the dirty-up of the refinery base fuel (Graph 3, black line), a combination of di-ferf-butyl disulfide (DTBDS, 409 ppmw, contributing 147 ppmw active sulfur to the fuel) and ferf-butyl hydrogen peroxide (TBHP, 286 ppmw) were added to the base fuel and the dirty-up was accelerated to provide almost twice the rate of dirty-up relative to the base fuel alone (Graph 3 - blue solid line).
In development studies, DTBDS alone provided a ~44 % increase in fouling relative to base fuel and TBHP provided ~21% increase in fouling relative to base fuel.
This provides further evidence that DTBDS and TBHP are not the cause of the deposit formation, but act solely as a catalyst to increase the rate of deposit formation in the test by possibly providing more of the binding elements of the deposit or by helping seed initial deposit formation.
