Power Generation

Bell Fuel and Tank Services

 

Serving The Power Generation Industry

Way back in 1952, Robert Bell formulated the first version of his ATOM-IX (also called ATX) multi-function treatment for heavy fuel oil.

A lot has changed since then - in fact, it could be said that today's power generation industry is unrecognizable compared to back then.

Over the years, large and small power utilities, industrial generation systems and municipal power generation facilities both here and abroad, have all utilized Bell’s multi-function heavy fuel oil formulations to:

  • Improve furnace heat generation and efficiency
  • Reduce slag deposition on surfaces, like heat transfer tubes
  • Reduce cold-end corrosion
  • Improve operators' abilities to balance peak operating efficiency with management of both cold- and hot-corrosion issues 

Big Changes In Our National Energy Outlook

While the United States has seen coal and natural gas overtake heavy fuel oil for most of the U.S.’s large power generation capacity, there are still plenty of places that rely on the old standard heavy fuel oil for their needs, including many industrial and municipal buildings and manufacturing depots.

Bell Performance’s ATX line of HFO treatments deliver deposit-busting magnesium along with optimal levels of combustion-catalyst organometallic ingredients, to keep these facilities operating at peak performance while minimizing fuel-related issues that have plagued oil-fired furnaces and boilers.

ATX For Boiler Furnace Systems

Bell Performance has manufactured ATX-950, ATX-1004D, 1018D, 1020D and other multi-function formulations for heavy fuel oil since before John F. Kennedy was president. ATX formulations for boiler furnaces provide:

  • Combustion catalyst surfactant
  • Deposit modifying effects in an oil-soluble formation.

ATX For Gas Turbine Systems

Gas turbine systems utilizing heavy fuel oil and bunker-type fuels require higher-quality treatments than boiler systems. Bell Performance offers turbine-grade over-based magnesium sulfonate treatments with our ATX T-Series additives - ATX-1100T and ATX-1400T. Both are designed to remediate high-temperature corrosion, molten deposit formation and acid gas emissions associated with high vanadium, high sulfur residual fuel oils.
