?What is Fuel Oil
?What is Fuel Oil
Mazut is a heavy and low quality fuel oil that is used in the production of plants and similar applications.
In the United States and Western Europe, diesel oil is mixed or spoiled and the end product is diesel.
Fuel may be used to heat homes in the former Soviet Union and in countries in the Far East that cannot be mixed or decomposed into conventional petrochemicals.
In the West, the furnaces that burn fuel oil are commonly referred to as “waste oil heaters” or “waste oil” furnaces.
Mazut-100 that is produced with GOST specifications,
For example GOST 10585-75 (not active),
Oil fuel GOST 10585-99. Mesut Profile (active, last modified on 07.01.2010).
(For example, GOST is the Russian standard system, just like ASTM or ANSI).
Mazut is produced almost exclusively in the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
This product usually uses larger boilers in the production of steam because the amount of BTU is high.
The most important consideration (not only) when grading this fuel is the amount of sulfur, which may affect the source materials more than that.
For transportation purposes, this product is considered a “dirty oil” product
And because viscosity greatly affects whether it is able to pump, transportation has unique requirements.
Mesut is almost like oil number 6 and is part of the product
Which remains after the evaporation of gasoline and lighter components than crude oil.
Different types of Mazut-100
The main difference between the different types of Mazut-100 is in the sulfur content.
Scores are indicated by this sulfur level:
“Very low sulfur” is 0.5% sulfur
“Low sulfur” is a with 0.5-1.0% sulfur
“Natural sulfur” is a with 1.0-2.0% sulfur
“High sulfur” is al with a sulfur content of 0-3-3.5%
Very low sulfur is generally made from the lowest sulfur raw materials.
export fuel oil
It has a very limited volume for export because:
The number of manufacturers in Russia is limited.
Refineries that produce this,
Owned by the largest domestic oil companies,
Like Lukovil and Rosneft etc.
In Russia and the CIS at least 50% of the total volume produced is sold only to domestic consumers in Russia and the CIS.
Most of the remaining amount is reserved by government quotas for overseas controlled companies.
Remaining volume available for export according to state quotas,
It can only be sold to Russian domestic companies through government auctions.
More or less diesel sulfur oil is available from Russia and other CIS countries (Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan).
Technical specifications in accordance with the Russian standard GOST 10585-99 are provided in the same way.
Fuel oil of Russian origin demands higher prices
?What is fuel oil
It is a fraction obtained from the distillation of oil, either as distillation or residues.
Broadly, fuel oil is any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler to generate heat
Or used in the engine to generate power,
Except for oils having a flame point of approximately 107 degrees Fahrenheit (42 degrees Celsius) and oils in cotton or wick burners.
In this sense, diesel is a type of this
Fuel oil is made up of long hydrocarbon chains, especially alkanes, cyclolans and aromatics.
The term of this is also used in a more precise sense
To mention only the heaviest commercial fuel that can be obtained from crude oil, that is, heavier than gasoline and naphtha.
In some countries, the term fuel oil usually refers to diesel fuel
In Australia, on the other hand, diesel fuel itself is commonly known as distillation.
