DEFINITION: The CerMet test was performed on ten (10) single axel 9100 International tractors with Series 60 Detroit Diesel 11 and 12 liter engines. They run a combination of city and highway miles and average about 28% idle time. The test was only conducted for Fuel Savings data only and all other base line tests were not per­formed.

PROCEDURE: Base line fuel data, miles per gallon, and odometer readings were tracked for future compari­son. Each tractor received 50 ml of CerMet for Diesel Engines and were driven for over 2000 miles. After treat­ment fuel data, miles per gallon, and odometer readings were taken and compared to original base line data.


View

RESULTS & ANALYSIS: The CerMet After-Treatment test data showed an improvement in fuel economy to a 12% average. Each tractor produced an average 6.05 miles per gallon before the treatment and 6, 78 mpg after This improvement extrapolates out to a yearly savings of approximately $2, 451 per tractor, multiplied by SYSCO's entire fleet generates an estimated savings over $53 million per year bringing an overall Return on Investment (ROI) ratio of 5:1 just in fuel savings alone. All other benefits, such as; less oil consumption, less maintenance costs, and increased part and engine life will dramatically increase the ROI. Importantly, the test was started at the end of summer and finished in the winter where historically more fuel is burned, thus reducing overall average MPG, because of additional idle time. So instead of average MPG going down a few percentage points during these months, it actually increased by 12%.

Other Benefits

  • Less Oil Blow-by
  • Better Compression
  • Less Harmful Emissions
  • Less Noise & Vibration
  • Easier Starts
  • Longer Lasting Parts

"Our initial test yielded over 11% in fuel savings and major angine repair on one of our internal units. This sparked a larger 10 truck test, which again yielded great results. With the new and improved CerMet, we saw a 12% average fuel savings for all vehicles treated. A phenomenal gain compared to all other products we've tested. CerMet certainly has proved itself."

DEFINITION: The CerMet test was conducted on the G & G Shipping vessel "Bahama Ranger" utilizing two Catepilar 3412 Turbo Engines and two gearboxes. The oil capacities for these engines were 36 gallons each, and the oil capacities for the gearboxes were 7 gallons each. Engine wear: The vessel was burning through twelve gallons of oil per day.
PROCEDURE: The Bahama Ranger's engines and gearboxes were treated with CerMet while at the dock between shipments. The entire initial procedure took about fifteen minutes. 200 ml. of CerMet was applied to each engine (by adding to the oil), treating 72 gallons of oil in total, taking into consideration some loss of CerMet through current engine oil loss calculations. The vessel sailed at normal intervals, carrying similar loads, and running at normal speeds for over 200 hours allowing CerMet to com­pletely work throughout the engine and gearbox.

RESULTS & ANALYSIS: Base Line data was collected for two months prior to the CerMet test, then the engines and gearboxes were treated and run for approxi­mately seventy-five days. After Treatment data was then carefully collected, compared and analyzed. Our efforts concentrated on comparing "like" voyages, engine runs and loads. We are always conscious of external conditions and variables that may have an effect on any test outcome and we may mathematically adjust for these anomalies accordingly.

The Bahama Ranger was burning approximately 12 gallons of oil per day and soon after the CerMet treatment, the vessel showed a dramatic reduction in oil consumption now burning only 7 gallons per day, a savings of 42%. To explain: CerMet not only cleaned the cylinder walls, piston rings, bearings and other engine parts of oxidation and corrosion, but has begun to repair the surface and build the new ceramic-metal layer.

According to the vessel's data, the engines RPMs had not been dialed down during or after the CerMet treatment from the typical operating speed of 1600RPM, thus allowing the vessel to bum the same amount of fuel per hour for each voyage. Therefore, the method used for calculating fuel savings and efficiency increases was Overall Voyage Time comparisons. In doing so, it was noticed that the vessel was arriving at its destination much sooner than previously noted. Using this table we were able to find only one round-trip: Dania —> Long Island —> Cat Island —> Dania that was repeated more than 4 times in August (before treatment) and 3 times in December (after treatment). Thus comparing this trip will give us statistically significant difference in round-trip time. The average decreases in voyage times were approximately 8% (see chart below), thus an overall average fuel saving of 8%.

RECOMMENDATION: If the engine's RPMs are reduced to keep the vessel on normal schedules, the overall internal load will thus be reduced and the Bahama Ranger should see fuel savings closer to 15%, let alone significant additional savings in engine wear, maintenance and oil loss. It is recommended for G&G Shipping to calcu­late where the greatest savings for the company ultimately lie, either through quicker shipments or less wear and energy consumption on the engines. With these estimates and extrapolating across G & G's entire fleet we believe the overall company savings could conservatively be over $800,000, a return on investment over 5:1.

Round Trip Averages at 1600RPM

"CerMet proved its worth in the first two weeks of use saving us 42% in oil con­sumption alone. The engines efficiency and power increased so drastically we were arriving hours earlier than any previous voyage."

DEFINITION: The CerMet test was conducted on the Tugboat Jerry Jared utilizing 2 (two) Detroit Diesel Engines and 2 (two) gearboxes. The oil capacities for these engines were 400 gallons (including reserves), and the oil capacities for the gearboxes were 70 gallons. Engine wear: The vessel was burning through 28 (twenty-eight) gallons of oil per day and was about to enter dry-dock for engine maintenance.
PROCEDURE: The Jerry Jared's engines and gearboxes were treated with CerMet while at the dock between shipments. The entire initial procedure took about fifteen minutes. 240 ml. of CerMet was applied to each engine (by adding to the oil), treating 45 gallons of oil each in total, taking into consideration some loss of CerMet through current engine oil loss calculations. The vessel sailed at normal inter­vals, carrying similar loads, and running at normal speeds for over 720 hours allowing CerMet to completely work throughout the engine and gearbox.

RESULTS & ANALYSIS: Base Line data was collected for two months prior to the CerMet test, then the engines and gearboxes were treated and run for approximately 30 (thirty) days. After treatment data was then carefully collected, compared and analyzed. Our efforts concentrated on comparing "like" voyages, engine runs and loads. We are always conscious of external conditions and variables that may have an effect on any test outcome and we may mathematically adjust for these anomalies accordingly.

The Jerry Jared tugboat was burning approximately 28 gallons of oil per day. Soon after the CerMet treatment, the vessel showed a reduc­tion in oil consumption, now burning only 15 gallons per day, a savings of 48%. To explain: CerMet has not only cleaned the cylinder walls, piston rings, bearings and other engine parts of oxidation and corrosion, but has begun to repair the surface and build the new ceramic-metal layer. One major noticeable change was the decrease in engine heat by 25%.

RECOMMENDATION: The Jerry Jared tugboat would benefit from another CerMet treatment to continue to reduce the massive daily oil consumption. Once the oil consumption is under control additional benefits will appear with additional improved fuel economy, extended part life, and reduction in downtime for engine repair. With these estimates and extrapolating across Marquette Transportation's entire fleet we believe the overall company savings could conservatively be over $700,000, a return on investment 6:1.

10:1

DEFINITION: The CerMet test was conducted on a 1995 Ford Mustang GT with a 302 cubic inch 5.0 Liter engine with an odometer reading of 103,070 miles. The atmospheric conditions were a steady 86 degrees Fahr­enheit, 52% Humidity, and a Barometric reading of 31. Both cylinder compression and cylinder leak-down tests were run before and after the CerMet treatment. A fuel flow meter was used to conduct a fuel economy test before the CerMet treatment yielding an average 14 MPG in city driving conditions and 22 MPG on the highway. The vehicle was tested on a Mustang Dynamometer for Horsepower increase at Motor City Steel in Commerce Twp., Michigan.
PROCEDURE: The Mustang GT was tested and treated with 8 ml. of CerMet added to the newly changed engine oil. The vehicle was then driven for over 2000 miles to give CerMet the necessary time needed to treat the entire engine's parts. After treatment tests were then conducted with the following vehicle and atmospheric conditions: 82 degrees Fahrenheit, 50% Humidity, and a Barometric reading of 29.98% and the vehicle had 105,869 miles on the odometer.

RESULTS & ANALYSIS: The CerMet After-Treatment test data showed an improvement in three troubled cylinders (1, 4, 7) with a leak-down improvement of 28% in each, Overall! average leak-down pressure improve­ment in all cylinders registered 18%. Gas mileage improved over 12% to an average 16 mpg - city, and an average 25 mpg - highway. Noticeable differences included Power Increase, less noise and vibration, and the vehicle started easier and ran smoother. The Mustang Dynamometer resulted in an increase of 7% in Horsepower

"CerMet is an incredible technology that I didn't believe would work at firsts... then it proved me wrong. I noticed cylinder compression increase and level out, and leakdon pressure drop an average of 18%. Our engine had three cylinders in rough shape and CerMet repaired them. We experienced an increase in power that you would only typically see if you invested over $1000 in high-performance parts"
