FORTIFIED OIL STABILIZER

The ONLY additive that boosts Total Base Number

 

Now with FR3 Nano Lubricant Technology

INCREASES TBN UP TO 7 POINTS.

 

TBN Booster additive is the only fortified engine oil stabilizer that increases total base number (TBN) and viscosity by replenishing the detergents and dispersants that are naturally lost over time. When these detergent and dispersant additives are replenished, your oil will be able to effectively neutralize the acidic conditions that corrode your engine. TBN Booster additive is a concentrated formula that contains 100% active ingredients of a CK-4 Additive Package, a TBN Booster and the infusion of Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 FRICTION REDUCER.

**Please make sure overall oil level does not exceed oil fill level**

Benefits

CAUTION: Do not overdose vehicles with a diesel particulate filler.

Hot Shot’s Secret TBN Booster is an engine oil additive created to fortify and stabilize the host oil while also increasing the Total Base Number (TBN). TBN Booster increases the host oil’s Total Base Number and viscosity by replenishing the oil’s detergents that are naturally lost over time. This allows the oil to effectively neutralize the acidic conditions that corrode your engine. TBN Booster is a concentrated formula that contains 100% active ingredients of a CK-4 additive package, a TBN Booster and Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 Friction Reducer. This allows for extended oil change intervals, improved viscosity stability and a decrease in oil oxidation. TBN Booster is compatible with all diesel engines and is recommended to be used in conjunction with oil analysis. Proudly made in the USA.

The treatment rate varies, depending on the desired TBN increase, initial Total Base Number and the oil capacity of your engine. The following guide is included for common diesel pickup truck engines.

Engine oil serves two purposes: To lubricate moving parts and to clean the engine. In order to clean, engine oil contains detergents and dispersants. An engine oil’s Total Base number (TBN) is the measure of active detergents and dispersants that are still present in the oil. These detergents and dispersants naturally deplete over time, which allows acid to form inside the engine. These acids are corrosive to your engine.

Hot Shot’s Secret TBN Booster replenishes these detergents and dispersants allowing your oil to effectively neutralize the acidic conditions inside your engine. This helps keep the engine clean, safe from corrosion and allows for extended oil change intervals. TBN booster is also infused with our FR3 Friction Reducer, which helps fortify the oil and increase lubricity for added protection.

Total Base Number (TBN) is the measure of the alkalinity reserves (detergents and dispersants) in your oil as expressed in KOH/gram. The alkalinity reserve is naturally being depleted from the oil, as it is designed to be self-sacrificial in order to protect the oil and the components inside the engine. Knowing an oil’s alkalinity reserve will help in determining the remaining useful life of the oil. Therefore, oil analysis is always recommended.

The oil’s detergents and dispersants (quantified by TBN) help combat sludge and varnish build up on internal components of the engine but also help reduce the harmful effects of the combustion process (acidic conditions). Some of the Sulfur components in your diesel fuel are converted to metal sulfates and Sulfuric Dioxide (SO2) during diesel combustion. This SO2 reacts with oxygen and water to form Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4). These acidic conditions are harmful and corrosive to all metal surfaces inside your engine. The higher the TBN value of your oil, the more this acid can be neutralized oil and slow the oxidation rate.

In applications where extended oil change intervals are needed or oil quality needs improved, the TBN rating of the oil must be replenished in order to protect the engine. Hot Shot’s Secret TBN Booster does just that by replenishing the detergents and dispersants with a CK-4 package and over based calcium sulfonates, which raises TBN levels to effectively neutralize these harsh acids and disperse the soot produced by diesel combustion.

Many oil “stabilizers” or “fortifiers” are simply thick base oils. While these products fix the problems associated with a loss of viscosity due to shearing and potential oxidation of oil, they actually dilute your additive packages. TBN Booster is the only product available that addresses all the issues associated with aging oil and the only product that raises TBN.

TBN Booster’s formula contains 100% active ingredients of a CK-4 additive package, a TBN Booster and Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 Friction Reducer. Increased fuel mileage, reduced wear and decreased oxidation are achieved by the addition of FR3 Friction Reducer. For a full list of benefits provided by FR3 Friction Reducer, please visit the FR3 product page.

Hot Shot’s Secret TBN booster is compatible in all synthetic or conventional engine oils, although a high quality PAO oil is recommended for you to experience the most mileage on a single oil change.

Oil Filters should be changed at normal maintenance intervals and an oil analysis program should be used to determine the proper treatment rate and schedule.

We learned that the high quality PAO Blue Diamond Engine Oil was kept clean by the Frantz bypass filter and the oil viscosity was in spec because of the lack of shearing, but the additives were depleted over time, so a new product was formulated to address this issue.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT TBN Booster

What is TBN Booster?

TBN Booster is a concentrated formula that contains 100% active ingredients of a CK-4 additive package, a TBN Booster and Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 Friction Reducer. This allows for extended oil change intervals, improved viscosity stability and a decrease in oil oxidation.
 

Can You Use TBN Booster in Gas Engines?

If it does not have an emissions system yes you can use our TBN Booster, if it still has the emissions system it cannot be used due to the possibility of clogging up the catalytic converter if you are experiencing oil consumption or blow-by.
 

Can Stiction Eliminator and TBN Booster Be Used At the Same Time?

TBN Booster during an oil change interval after an oil analysis indicates that the total base number should be boosted.  Stiction Eliminator should be used at the beginning of an interval.  Introducing TBN during an interval that started with Stiction Eliminator is fine.
 

Can I Use TBN booster if I Already Have Stiction Eliminator in My Oil to Prolong Oil Change? Or Does it Have to be Used Alone?

You can absolutely use it, yes! It’s simply replenishing the detergent from fresh oil, if used as directed.
 

How Do I Know If I Need TBN Booster?

If you need to extend the life of your oil before performing the next change TBN Booster could be for you.
Performing an oil analysis will determine the amount of TBN needed to bring your oil back into specification. In addition to raising the Total Base Number (TBN), you will improve viscosity stability and a decrease in oil oxidation.
 

What makes TBN Booster Different From Other Products?

TBN Booster additive is the only fortified engine oil stabilizer that increases total base number (TBN) and viscosity by replenishing the detergents and dispersants that are naturally lost over time. When these detergent and dispersant additives are replenished, your oil will be able to effectively neutralize the acidic conditions that corrode your engine. TBN Booster additive is a concentrated formula that contains 100% active ingredients of a CK-4 Additive Package, a TBN Booster and the infusion of Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 FRICTION REDUCER.
