A group of 8 researchers, led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suraya Abdul Rashid visited Schiffs-& Industrie Technik (M) Sdn Bhd (SIT), located in Petaling Jaya, Selangor on 25th February 2016. Visitors were greeted by SIT’s Managing Director, Mr. Marizan Nor Basirun and its Marketing Manager, Ms. Aliaa Marizan.
SITS is a manufacturer of CD92 systems which are able to reduce fuel wastage and improve fuel consumption. They also produce alternative diesel oil for commercial use which is called Orimulsion and Biofuel. If treated by CD92, these fuels can be combusted in engines and boilers efficiently. The deployment of CD92 systems is believed to improve engine management and also helps reduce maintenance, repairs and spare parts costs. Importantly, this system fulfills the requirements for environmental friendly operation by reduction of oil sludge and exhaust gas emissions.
A short discussion on the current products and research conducted by SIT was held followed by a two hour factory visit. The visit has given a new insight for MPTL researchers in emulsion fuel research and manufacturing.
