Research Evaluation of Agglomerates in Heavy Fuel 620273

The procedure utilized during a research evaluation of the effect of agglomerates in heavy fuels is described, and a simple light microscopic method for the study of particle dispersion in heavy fuels is given. The effectiveness of commercial additives for the treatment of heavy fuels to initiate dispersion is outlined as well as the development of a fast and inexpensive filtration test for accurately measuring the effect of various additives on various heavy fuels. Finally, the basic development work and the results obtained using ultrasonic dispersion of agglomerates during an actual engine performance test with heavy residual fuel oil is presented.
