The Effect Of Mixing Diesel Fuels Additized With Kerosene and Cloud Point Depressants 2000-01-2884
Low temperature flow improvers help refiners meet diesel fuel cold flow specifications and optimize profits. However, some additives, cloud point depressants in particular, are under scrutiny since there have been cases where they interacted with other cold flow improvers and became less effective at depressing the cloud point of the diesel fuel.
This second paper in a series of studies examines what effect mixing cloud point depressed diesel fuel with other cloud point depressed diesel fuel or with diesel fuel diluted with kerosene will have on the resultant fuel mixture's cloud point.
The data show that cloud point depressants can be used safely and effectively with kerosene blended fuels and in conjunction with other cloud point depressants.
