Furnace Oil

Furnace oil is a dark, viscous residual fuel oil, which is obtained by blending residual products from various refining processes with suitable diluents usually distillate East to get the required grades of fuel oil. These grades of fuel oil are similar in nature and were marketed under different specifications in different countries. In India is sold under the specifications bis 1593-1982.

Uses of Furnace Oil are
  • As fuel for Power Generation in DG Sets
  • As fuel for Boilers/ Furnaces/ Air pre-heater/ Any other Heaters
  • Fuel for Bunkering
  • Fuel/ Feedstock in Fertilizer Plants

Furnace oil is a C class product having a flash point above 66 OC. Because this is a residual fuel, there must be a gradual filtration system prevent candidate choking and suffocation fuel nozzles. Due to the nature of viscous, it must be heated to improve liquidity and to the proper temperature for proper atomization. And usually preferred gear pumps to avoid cavitations problems.
