Combustion efficiency and emissions are directly impacted by the fuel characteristics and how fuel is atomized. Heavy fuel oil presents unique challenges. Known as bunker or “resid,” it is the least-refined, and, thus, the least expensive oil. It also has the most variation, depending on the characteristics of the oil field it was from and how it was processed. Despite this, the fuel viscosity must be tightly controlled in order to control fuel atomization, and thus burn efficiency and emissions.
While heavy fuel oil is the most difficult, other fuels including biofuels require consistent atomization and viscosity control.
Cambridge Viscosity’s automated viscometers are robust, reliable, and self-cleaning. Our measurement and control products support the unique requirements of fuel combustion, providing direct viscosity measurement and control for improved burn efficiency, lower emissions, reduced engine wear, and easier handling.
