Fuel Oil

Fuel oil (also known as heavy oil, marine fuel, bunker, furnace oil, or gasoil) is a fraction obtained from the distillation of petroleum (crude oil). It includes distillates (the lighter fractions) and residues (the heavier fractions).

The term fuel oil generally includes any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler to generate heat, or used in an engine to generate power. However, it does not usually include other liquid oils, such as those with a flash point of approximately 42 °C (108 °F), or oils burned in cotton- or wool-wick burners. In a stricter sense, fuel oil refers only to the heaviest commercial fuels that crude oil can yield, that is, those fuels heavier than gasoline (petrol) and naphtha.

Fuel oil or mazot : It is one of the heaviest petroleum products that is often used in power plants and big ships due to its high sulfur and high concentration.

Fuel oil (also known as heavy oil, marine fuel, bunker, furnace oil, or gasoil) is a fraction obtained from the distillation of petroleum (crude oil). It includes distillates (the lighter fractions) and residues (the heavier fractions).

 

Fuel oil consists of long-chain hydrocarbons, particularly alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics. Small molecules, such as those in propane, naphtha, gasoline, and kerosene, have relatively low boiling points, and are removed at the start of the fractional distillation process. Heavier petroleum derived oils like diesel fuel and lubricating oil are much less volatile and distill out more slowly.

 

The term fuel oil generally includes any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler to generate heat, or used in an engine to generate power. However, it does not usually include other liquid oils, such as those with a flash point of approximately 62 °C (144 °F), or oils burned in cotton- or wool-wick burners.

 

In a stricter sense, fuel oil refers only to the heaviest commercial fuels that crude oil can yield, that is, those fuels heavier than gasoline (petrol) and naphtha.
Fuel oil is known and traded based on the degree of viscosity. This furnace oil 220 means that this furnace oil has a viscosity of 220 @ 50 .C.

fuel oil is 380 @ 50 .C… .380. The higher the viscosity, the higher the weight of the fuel oil


Heavy fuel oils continue to be used in the boiler "lighting up" facility in many coal-fired power plants. This use is approximately analogous to using kindling to start a fire. Without performing this act it is difficult to begin the large-scale combustion process.

The chief drawback to residual fuel oil is its high initial viscosity, particularly in the case of No. 6 oil, which requires a correctly engineered system for storage, pumping, and burning. Though it is still usually lighter than water (with a specific gravity usually ranging from 0.95 to 1.03) it is much heavier and more viscous than No. 2 oil, kerosene, or gasoline.

 

No. 6 oil must, in fact, be stored at around 38 °C (100 °F) heated to 65–120 °C (149–248 °F) before it can be easily pumped, and in cooler temperatures it can congeal into a tarry semisolid.

 

The flash point of most blends of No. 6 oil is, incidentally, about 65 °C (149 °F). Attempting to pump high-viscosity oil at low temperatures was a frequent cause of damage to fuel lines, furnaces, and related equipment which were often designed for lighter fuels.

Fuel oil consists of long-chain hydrocarbons, particularly alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics. Small molecules, such as those in propane, naphtha, gasoline, andkerosene, have relatively low boiling points, and are removed at the start of the fractional distillation process. Heavier petroleum derived oils like diesel fuel and lubricating oil are much less volatile and distill out more slowly.

 

Use of residual fuel oil was more common in the past. It powered boilers, railroad steam locomotives, and steamships.

 

Locomotives, however, have become powered by diesel or electric power; steamships are not as common as they were previously due to their higher operating costs (most LNG carriers use steam plants, as "boil-off" gas emitted from the cargo can be used as a fuel source); and most boilers now use heating oil or natural gas.

.Residual fuel's use in electrical generation has also decreased. In 1973, residual fuel oil produced 16.8% of the electricity in the US. By 1983, it had fallen to 6.2%, and as of 2005, electricity production from all forms of petroleum, including diesel and residual fuel, is only 3% of total production. The decline is the result of price competition with natural gas and environmental restrictions on emissions.

 

For power plants, the costs of heating the oil, extra pollution control and additional maintenance required after burning it often outweigh the low cost of the fuel. Burning fuel oil, particularly residual fuel oil, produces uniformly higher carbon dioxide emissions than natural gas.

 Fuel oil, which is also called heavy oil, marine fuel, mazut or diesel, is a mixture obtained from oil distillation. This composition includes distillates - lighter fractions and residues - heavier fractions.

The term fuel oil generally includes any type of liquid fuel that burns in a furnace or boiler to produce heat or is used in engines to produce power. This fuel is also used to generate electricity to some extent, but compared to natural gas, it is more expensive and has more pollution. But in case of gas supply interruption, it can be used as the main fuel for small power generators and as backup fuel to increase the production of power plants.

In Europe, its use as a fuel is limited to trucks and buses (more than 99%), and its heating use for homes has decreased due to the widespread penetration of natural gas as well as heat pumps. However, in some areas, such as the northeastern United States, it is still very common.
