Afton Chemical is pleased to announce its latest development in diesel fuel detergent technology, Greenclean™ 3, now available in North America. This powerful, innovative technology builds on the successful and recognized first-generation Greenclean™ platform. With its more robust detergent system, Greenclean™ 3 will continue to enhance the operation of heavy-duty fleets and off-road equipment that contain the latest engine technology and emission control devices.
Greenclean™ 3 Detergent Technology benefits include protection from both traditional deposits and internal injector deposits, enhanced filterability, improved stability, reduction in emissions, and improved fuel economy.
