• blending, bioethanol cavitation, methanol blending, methanol mixing, ethanol blending, ethanol mixing, fuel blending, fuel mixing, biodiesel blending, biodiesel mixing, diesel blendAdditive blending – additives are an instrument of fuel operational development properties which can’t be provided with the previous stages of fuel producing. They lead to product correction, instead of participate in the main method of production.
  • BioDiesel blending – BioDiesel Blending equipment bring diesel biofuel to a trade quality which responds all international standards. This fuel could be  possible use as independently, and in a compound with diesel fuel in arbitrary ratio.
  • Diesel blending – diesel blending fuel application in traditional diesel engines considerably reduces emissions in the atmosphere of hydrocarbons, oxide of carbon, sulfates, aromatic hydrocarbons and firm particles.
  • Gasoline blending – is carried out by introduction of proportional quantity of each component in the main stream where process of cavitation promotes their careful mixing. Additives and components which increasing octane number of gasoline, antioxidants, inhibitors of corrosion and gumming and etc. added in time or after mixing for ensuring the properties.
  • Ethanol blending – bioethanol mixing is applied in automotive industry; it is enough to add some percent of ethanol in gasoline to increase car power. It comes to everyday life more strongly, the world automotive industry adjusted release of cars which can work, both at pure gasoline, and at a gasoline mix with ethanol in any ratio.
  • Liquid blending – liquids can be mixed manually and a mechanical way. Mixing is necessary at dissolution of hard substances in liquid, at liquid dissolution in liquid, when carrying out many works.
  • Fuel oil blending – modern motor fuels made from basic fuel with additive blending process. For gasoline, first of all, additive should increase octane number, and for diesel fuels it will increase cetane number for improvement of flash temperature in the closed crucible and freezing temperatures.

Cavitation and its Types

Hydrodynamic cavitation is a process of generation of cavities (bubbles) filled with gas and vapor dissolved in fluid. The cavities appear when fluid flows around obstacles or vice versa, the obstacles (blades) move in liquid.

The cavities explode into tiny bubbles, which can burst under certain conditions.  The burst bubbles release local pressure up to 103 Pa, with subsequent jet formation 700 – 800 m / s...

Looking for a popular and inexpensive product, it is easy to pick soap, which successfully competes with more expensive cosmetic and hygiene products. It is understandable that the level of competition...

Additives for fuel economy: a modern view

Fuel additives. A private car doesn’t just give you the pleasure of a quick and comfortable ride, but it also requires everyday expenses for maintenance, and the biggest expense is the cost of fuel. The question of saving on fuel is very relevant.

The Internet offers many tips. One of the ways to save fuel is to use special additives. But experience shows that these additives have...

Manufacturers of car antifreeze

Car antifreeze. The high rate of technical progress led to the development of motor vehicles with high quality, reliability and durability, and increased their mass production rate. The cause of this technological leap is the development of the internal combustion engine. This also called for the development of support systems, among them improvements of the cooling system. Among the coolants in heating systems are anti-freezes and...

Hydrocarbon Content of Diesel Fuel and Susceptibility to Additives

To make diesel fuel with high performance and optimal hydrocarbon content, modern methods of component content measurement are required.

It seems impossible to achieve without using additives. Additive efficiency depends to a large extent on the hydrocarbon composition of diesel. Additives for diesel fuel are mostly selected by trial and error. This stage is one of the most problematic for fuel producers. The main difficulty is combining...

Catalytic Deparaffinization and Isodewaxing in Diesel Fuel Production

Diesel Fuel Production. Catalytic deparaffinization is increasingly used in oil refining due to its efficiency and technical simplicity. Experience shows that catalytic deparaffinization can be successfully integrated with deep hydrodesulfurization.

Let us briefly look at systems used for such processes. In 2003, hydrodewaxing equipment was first used. The equipment included a sulfur production section. The raw material for the process is a high paraffin content straight run...

Production of Diesel Fuel Blends

Diesel Fuel Blends. Modern oil refining performs several important functions, among which improvement of the low temperature performance of diesel fuel performance and increased depth of hydrofining.

Until recently, the production of fuel with good low temperature performance was done by either reducing the end of fuel boiling from 360ºС to 340ºС (330ºС for arctic fuel), or by dilution with kerosene. In both cases, the economic viability...

Multifunctional Cleaning Additives

Multifunctional Cleaning Additives. Modern oil refining cannot directly produce diesel fuel which can also clean the engine and the fuel system in the process of operation. Engine operation can be disrupted even by a small amount of desposits, degrading its efficiency and economy.

That is why mutifunction cleaning additives were developed. They improve performance and environmental parameters of diesel fuel. This type of additive reduces fuel consumption...

How Depressor Additives Operate

Depressor Additives. The first suggestions about the mechanism in which depressor additives affect fuel were first made in the 1930s-1950s. The modern theory explains the efficiency of the depressors by the presence of n-akanes in the fuel. These components crystallize when the temperature drops. These crystals cause clouding of diesel fuel. The crystals grow in size. At a certain point, a spacial framework forms. The fuel loses fluidity...

Depressant and Depressant-Dispersion Additives

Depressant-Dispersion Additives. The low temperature properties of diesel fuel have always been a focus of the oil refining industry and motorists alike. They are especially important in cold climates, where the demand for arctic and winter diesel fuel is high.

The main method of adjusting low temperature properties of diesel is the use of special depressor and depressor-dispersion additives. This approach is considered the most economical, and...

Antiwear Additives

Antiwear Additives. Fuel system parts wear down with time, so antiwear additives are mixed into diesel fuel.

Originally, diesel fuel has certain anti-wear properties due to the presence of naphthenic hydrocarbons. Many sulfuric compounds in diesel fuel also have such properties (benzothiophenes and sulfides). However, environmental considerations dictate limitations of sulfur content, making it impossible to ensure the required degree of wear protection by sulfur only. Special...

Anticorrosion Additives

Anticorrosion Additives. Anticorrosion additives are special substances mixed with fuel to give it protective properties. The result is the formation of a protective film on metal surfaces, preventing corrosion.

There are two types of anticorrosion additives. The first type includes alkyl sulfonate and nitrate oil. These promote the creation of a strong chemisorption layer on the protected surface, isolating air and moisture. The second type are the...

Cetane Improver Additives

Cetane Improver Additives. One of the ways to improve diesel fuel cetane number is to mix it with cetane improver additives. These additives reduce ignition lag of the fuel mixture.

There are two types of cetane improver additives:

  • alkyd
  • peroxide.

The additives cause homolytic molecule breaking and formation of free radicals, which provoke fuel ignition. The additives are only effective in the first stages...

Heavy Oil and Water: the Advantages of Water-Oil Emulsions

Water-fuel emulsions are a large number of small water droplets distributed in the oil. Media where heavy oil is dispersed is very rarely used.

In recent years, it has been suggested to use these emulsions as fuel. Such suggestions emerge due to the cost of oil-based fuels. Let us analyse the situation in the industry of making this type of fuel.

The main idea of burning...

Production of Ethanol-Based Blended Fuel

The number of motor vehicles in the world is constantly growing, along with the consumption of fuel. This causes the growing harmful emissions. One of the ways to tackle this problem is to replace the traditional fossil fuel with gasoline containing various additives.
