  • However, power plants and large ships are able to use residual fuel oil.
  • Use of residual fuel oil was more common in the past.
  • The main fuel for this plant is natural gas, and the reserve one is residual fuel oil.
  • Residual fuel's use in electrical generation has also decreased.
  • Cetane numbers are tested using a special test engine and the existing engine was not made for residual fuels.
  • Burning fuel oil, particularly residual fuel oil, produces uniformly higher carbon dioxide emissions than natural gas.
  • One attractive option would be to use these residual fuels to produce power and steam, leaving behind the issue of emissions to be addressed.
  • These complexes get concentrated on the higher-boiling fractions, which are the base of heavy residual fuel oils.
  • Since it requires heating before use, residual fuel oil cannot be used in road vehicles, boats or small ships, as the heating equipment takes up valuable space and makes the vehicle heavier.
  • In 1951, a residuum stripper was constructed to convert heavy residual fuel oil into lighter products.
  • This is from residual fuel and insulation in the motor casing, outgassing even without significant combustion.
  • A small amount of fuel in a tank is more critical than a large amount, since heat entering the fuel tank with residual fuel causes the fuel to increase in temperature faster and evaporate.
  • The most common residual fuels in the shipping industry are RMG and RMK.
  • In addition, Unit ST3 produces 505 megawatts of electricity by burning residual fuel oil and/or natural gas.
  • The RM-20 launch failed due to damage to the first stage, caused by the explosion of residual fuel in the flame trench during launch.
  • During pre-purge, the combustion air fan is started and the dampers are opened to allow fresh air into the combustion chamber and exhaust any other gases or residual fuel air mixtures.
  • Tank heaters may be required to maintain heavy crude oil, residual fuel, asphalt, wax, or molasses in a fluid state for offloading.
  • The refinery's products include gasoline, diesel, marine and jet fuels, residual fuels, and asphalt.
  • Iran is a net exporter of petroleum products thanks to large exports of residual fuel oil, but the refineries cannot meet domestic demand for lighter distillates such as gasoline.
  • The ISO standard describe four qualities of distillate fuels and 10 qualities of residual fuels.
