  • Winter is coming: precautions to protect your pumps

    Now that we are running up to December, the weather in the Northern hemisphere is slowly getting colder and colder. Although Western Europe has been fortunate with a reasonably mild fall, we are expected to get a harsh winter this year, meaning that it is good to prepare for the cold season. Being pump people, this means that we need to take precautions to protect our ...

  • Studies on behaviour of a DI diesel engine fuelled with bio oil biodiesel emulsions

    This paper discusses the results on the use of Jatropha methyl ester (JME) - Wood pyrolysis oil (WPO) emulsion as an alternative fuel in a compression ignition (CI) engine. Three different emulsions were prepared by adding WPO in 5%, 10% and 15% by volume with JME 95%, 90% and 85% by volume respectively using a surfactant Span 20 at 4% on volume basis. The engine behaviour in terms of the ...

  • Combustion and emission characteristics of a diesel engine fuelled with biodiesel having varying palmitic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid in their fuel composition

    The present work discusses the performance and emission characteristics of blends of vegetable oil esters with varying saturated fatty acid composition tested on a stationary direct injection compression ignition engine. Saturated fatty acids are long-chain carboxylic acids that usually have between 8 and 24 carbon atoms and have no double bonds. The unsaturated fatty acids resemble saturated ...

  • Multidimensional modelling of the effect of engine load on various exergy terms in an indirect injection diesel engine

    In this investigation, the energy and exergy analyses are carried out in a Lister 8.1 IDI diesel engine for different loads (25%, 50%, 75% and full loads operation) at maximum torque engine speed (730 rpm). The energy analysis is done during a closed cycle using of a three dimensional CFD code. The results by this model for the pressure in cylinder at 50% and full load operations are compared ...

  • Future of diesel engines with biodiesel economy

    Biofuel is a fuel from biological raw materials. Any animal or vegetable fat can become raw materials for production of the natural diesel practically. Biodiesel economy is really changed after technology was allowed to make fuel from algas, commercial crops, animal fats and even the fulfilled culinary oils can become the most widespread source of fats. This fuel is safe in production and use, it ...

  • Diesel dispersion is the most demanded light oil products today

    Diesel dispersion is the viscous, hardly evaporated combustible liquid received from oil kerosene-gasoil fractions, by their distillation. It is applied generally, as fuel for trucks, cars, railway transport, a water transport, and also agricultural machinery. All scope of diesel fuel usage is very wide. Diesel dispersion is one of the most demanded light oil products today. This fuel is intended ...

  • Hydrodynamic additive mixing is defined by hashing of molecules

    Additives and components dissolution in liquids are explained by hashing of molecules of different substances and grades. It is essential that the volume of a mix can differ from the sum of volumes of unmixed substances that testifies various compactness of molecular systems. So, at mixture of 100 cm of water and 100 cm of alcohol turn out to a total of 196 cm of a mix: in a mix of a molecule ...
