Case Study: Manitowoc 4600 Nets 20% in Fuel Savings
A Manatowoc 4600 Dragline was being used by the Florida Crushed Stone company to dig limerock under water. Previous normal operation burned 22.5 gallons per hour of fuel. After treating the fuel with AFC, it remained at 17.8 gallons per hour which is a 20.9% decrease in fuel consumed.
The net costs savings were approximately 20% taking into consideration the cost of the fuel and treatment costs.
“Based on fuel records and prior knowledge of our equipment performance I can say, without reservation, that [AFC] is superior to any product we have ever used to improve fuel performance.”
– Jeff Cherry, the VP of Operations at the Florida Crushed Stone company
