Product Description

Heavy fuel oil HFO  

  • Composition Heavy Fuel Oil is a residual fuel oil derived from crude oil refining It is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons with higher molecular weight and density than gasoline or diesel fuel
  • Density HFO has a high density typically ranging from 900 to 1050 kgm depending on the specific grade and origin
  • Viscosity HFO has a high viscosity meaning it is thick and flows relatively slowly at ambient temperatures
  • Color HFO is usually dark brown or black in color due to its high carbon content
  • Sulfur Content Heavy Fuel Oil is known for its relatively high sulfur content which can lead to sulfur dioxide emissions when burned
  • Boiling Range HFO has a wide boiling range and it is obtained from the residual fraction of the crude oil after the lighter fractions have been separated during the refining process
  • Heating Value HFO has a high calorific value making it suitable for use in industrial processes and power generation
  • Combustion Properties HFO requires preheating before use in burners due to its high viscosity and may require additional atomization to facilitate combustion
  • Applications Heavy Fuel Oil is commonly used as a fuel source in industrial boilers power plants marine engines bunker fuel and certain types of large stationary engines
  • Storage HFO must be stored and handled at elevated temperatures to maintain its fluidity It is typically stored in specially designed storage tanks with heating systems
  • Environmental Impact The burning of Heavy Fuel Oil can release greenhouse gases CO2 and air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide SO2 and particulate matter PM which contribute to air pollution and climate change
  • Regulations HFO may be subject to regional and international regulations that limit its sulfur content and emissions to address environmental concerns
  • Alternatives Due to environmental considerations some industries are transitioning to cleaner fuels and technologies such as natural gas liquefied natural gas LNG and renewable energy sources.
  • Please note that the properties of Heavy Fuel Oil can vary depending on the specific grade and region of production Always adhere to safety guidelines and follow the recommended storage and handling procedures when dealing with Heavy Fuel Oil to ensure safe and efficient usage
