Cetane, Cold Flow & Shelf Life

Slide 9

Cetane When diesel fuel is infused into the exceptionally hot compacted air in the burning chamber, it must have the capacity to light suddenly. This nature of diesel is known as “auto-ignition” and at whatever time slack from the snippet of infusion until the fuel touches off is called “ignition lag”. A numeric scale has been concocted to gauge a powers quality regarding its capacity to promptly “auto ignite” and this scale is know as the Cetane file or Cetane number. Immaculate Cetane is the “perfect” diesel fuel in light of the fact that it auto-touches off promptly. Along these lines, it is doled out the Cetane # “100”. Then again, methyl naphthalene is a moderate smoldering fuel and is inadmissible for utilization in a cutting edge diesel. It has a Cetane # of 0. Refiners mix their distillate items to accomplish a Cetane number some place amidst this extent. A rating of 50 is viewed as extremely alluring. Most Diesel in the US has a Cetane # in the low 40’s. 40 is viewed as the base satisfactory quality. Unadulterated Canola based biodiesel has a Cetane # of 63!

Biodiesel Blends What’s amiss with mixes above B5? Issues to tackle for higher mixes Fuel quality Fuel oxidation soundness Contamination, organism development High cloud point Materials association NOx build Fuel channel water partition effectiveness

Slide 11

Biodiesel Blends Quality: Certification program for makers and advertisers (BQ9000). Accessibility of ASTM spec. fuel. Security: ASTM dependability working gathering. D6751 spec for B100 needs security spec. W likewise require a stand alone B20 spec., solidness added substances and great practices. B20 mixed with ULSD has 5 to 10 times more awful security than mixing with S-500 Contamination, microorganism development: Fuel conveyance and capacity control must enhance, create soundness added substances.

Slide 12

Biodiesel Blends High Cloud Point: Develop icy stream improver added substances or mix higher % Petro Diesel Materials Interaction with Biodiesel should be completely caught on. Need to affirm long haul B20 impacts NOx: Need to comprehend affirmation suggestions for Nox increment. (2 % NOx expand w/B20) Water Separation Efficiency: Filtration materials, bigger size units or extra channels will be required

Slide 13

Fuel Quality Recent study by the DOE on B20 mixes from arbitrary suppliers discovered that 36% of the specimens didn’t meet the 18-22% mix proportion!

Slide 14

Materials Interaction Degradation/swelling of elastomers (characteristic and nitrile elastic), Nylon. BioDiesel assaults metal, bronze, copper, lead, tin and zinc Example: Bosch pump overpressure valve, evacuation of zinc covering after 1 yr stand-by genset operation with B20 (300 hrs): #2 Diesel B20 mix

Slide 15

Nox Emissions Degradation/swelling of elastomers (characteristic and nitrile elastic), Nylon 66 Attacks metal, bronze, copper, lead, tin and zinc Bosch pump overpressure valve, evacuation of zinc covering after 1 yr stand-by genset operation with B20 (300 hrs): #2 Diesel B20 mix

Slide 16

Biodiesel Quality 6) Water Specification: <500PPM Good quality petro diesel has a water content in the scope of 50ppm Biodiesel will hold up to 1500 ppm of water! Water harms fuel framework segments, is as of now an issue with OEM’s Re: their B5 restriction

Switching Over-Older Vehicles Biodiesel contains liquor, which is a characteristic dissolvable. Vehicles that have been in administration for any time allotment utilizing fossil diesel will have a development of enamels and other petroleum stores on the fuel\'s dividers tank and fuel lines. The alkyl-esters in biodiesel will tend to “clean” these stores from the fuel\'s surfaces framework and convey them to the vehicles fuel channels, where they will be caught and will rapidly stop up the channel! These same alcohols can likewise assault a percentage of the “soft” parts, for example, o-rings and adaptable fuel lines. At the point when B-20 or B-100 are utilized, Care must be taken to verify that these segments are made of materials, for example, Viton, that are perfect with biodiesel!

Slide 20

Biodiesel Lubricity Diesel infusion frameworks have constantly utilized the diesel fuel to give grease to the some little, close resilience moving parts in fuel convey pumps, injector pumps and fuel injectors. The sulfur in fossil diesel produces numerous destructive discharges and is in charge of bringing on the motor oil to turn dark. Yet it is a magnificent grease and aides give the greasing up nature of diesel fuel. Fossil diesel (known as Low-sulfur Diesel) has around 500 sections for each million of sulfur. Indeed, even at that level, lubricity enhancers are routinely added to the fuel to secure motor fuel frameworks.

Slide 21

Biodiesel Lubricity On Oct. 15 of 2006 Federal Law obliged this substance to be decreased to 15 sections for each million or less for on-expressway fuel. This is ULSD. (Ultra-low sulfur Diesel). The sulfur\'s expulsion from diesel fuel has a further effect on its greasing up quality. Architects need to add extra enhancers to the fuel, or utilize more lavish parts that can better endure the absence of oil from ULSD. The alkyl-esters in Biodiesel are a characteristic grease. Designers have perceived that the utilization of biodiesel, even in generally low rates, for example, B2 or B5 will upgrade the fuel\'s lubricity and in this manner supplant the sulfur as a grease with no of sulphur’s unsafe impacts.

Biodiesel Economics American Jobs Act established 10/04 Deals with assessment credits for Biodiesel and Ethanol to counterbalance the Federal Excise Tax on engine powers The FET is presently $0.25/gal on every single engine fuel. Under this law, a credit of $1.00/gal will be given when Biodiesel or Ethanol powers are blended with petroleum items. This law will terminate on 12/31/08

Slide 29

Biodiesel Economics Example: An oil organization is going to mix 1000 gallons of B5. The FET on this fuel will be $250.00 However, 50 gallons of this mix is Biodiesel so a $50.00 credit can be connected so the aggregate assessments paid will be just $200.00

Slide 30

Biodiesel Economics Yellow oil and chestnut oil (non-agrarian oil) can just assume a praise of $0.50/gal B100 is absolved from the FET A maker offering B100 to an end client can guarantee a $1.00/gal credit through the salary charge framework. The Biodiesel must originate from an IRS enrolled and affirmed maker
