FURNACE FUEL OIL

FURNACE FUEL OIL

Fuel Oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue. Broadly speaking, Oil is any liquid petroleum product, which is burned in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power, except oils having a flash point of approximately 40 °C (104 °F). Oil is made of long hydrocarbon chains, particularly alkanes, cycloalkanes and aromatics. The term Fuel Oil is also used in a stricter sense to refer only to the heaviest commercial fuel that can be obtained from crude oil, heavier than gasoline and naphtha.  Fuel oils are used as fuel for power generation, marine bunkers and large industrial heating plants.

Application:

  • Fuel for power generation
  • Marine bunkers
  • Large industrial heating plants
