  • Reduce the harmful effects of exhaust emissions with Aspen Alkylate Petrol

    You may think that if you’re operating petrol-powered equipment, particularly in poorly ventilated spaces, that exposure to harmful hydrocarbons is largely unavoidable. Benzene is just one of the many hydrocarbons found in conventional pump fuel and exhaust emissions, often considered the substance most dangerous to human health. However, there is an alternative in the form of Aspen Alkylate petrol – switching to which can reduce benzene emissions by up to 108 times! 

     

    The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) regulations advise against benzene exposure completely, but where this cannot be reasonably achieved, there are steps that can be taken to adequately control exposure as far as is reasonably practicable - and certainly below the workplace exposure limit (WEL) assigned for benzene of part per million (ppm) of air averaged over an 8-hour period. One way of doing this could be switching from traditional pump fuel to Aspen

     

    An Alkylate petrol, Aspen is made using only the cleanest Alkylate components that occur when oil is refined. This process involves combining excess gases from the distillation of crude oil and from the cracking plant, resulting in a liquid alkylate. Once some additional components are mixed in, the result is a finished fuel which is significantly purer than traditional petrol, with content of harmful aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene and polyaromatics (PAH) close to zero. 

     

    Being virtually free from benzene, as well as sulphur and many other harmful substances, using Aspen Alkylate petrol improves the health and performance of your equipment, the working conditions for the operator and significantly reduces the harmful impact your machinery makes on the environment. Aspen is also ethanol-free, which improves reliability, maintains engine performance and preserves the life of component parts which can be susceptible to failure when running on conventional pump fuel, especially if it has been left for any extended period of time in storage.

     

    Aspen is available in a range of unit sizes (5L, 25L, 60L and 200L) and in both pre-mixed 2-stroke and 4-stroke varieties.

    while on the subject, i am not gonna die of benzene but...i only use aspen for my small engines, bar for my 14hp petrol mill, it's not even a year old and the carb is playing up. do others use aspen 4 for their mills, for the same reasons?

    I would not use aspen in a mill ever. If that is a woodland mill with the 14 hp kohler engine no wonder your having issues.

    What's up with the 14hp Kohler ? I rhave one on my Laski 360 stump grinder. Not many hours but starts easy and runs smooth. Only ever use Aspen or other brand  akalyte fuel in my saws and small machines both 2 and 4 stroke. Saws and machines run better on it though maybe use a touch more fuel but have had much less engine troubles and a clearer head at the end of a day
