    Residual fuel oils today are still an unprocessed product made from the substantial fraction, of the crude oil remaining after the most valuable commodities have been

    extracted


    The main types of residual fuel additives in the marine and power generation markets are

    i. pre-combustion conditioning treatment additives(e.g., demulsifiers, dispersants)

    ii. Combustion improvers

    iii. ash modifiers

    The combustion phase is one of the areas where marine residual fuel oil additives can be used to advantage. A combustion improver can be organic or can include an

    organo-metallic compound, containing iron or other metals. The use of an iron-based component as an oxidation catalyst to accelerate the main combustion and enhance

    complete combustion of residual fuel oils is a proven technology


    HFO fuel additives prevent corrosion from CM, reduce slag and ash fouling, and control corrosion from high sulfur levels. Additives also decrease burner-tip fouling, improve

    combustion performance, and stabilize stored fuel. They can be used to reduce corrosion and fouling in fuel handling systems, too. By addressing these problems, additives

    improve fuel quality and prevent harm to the boiler or engine. This reduces maintenance cost and prolongs operational life.


    HFO additives include fuel stability additives, combustion improvers, corrosion inhibitors, and ash modifiers. HFO combustion additives can be added to problem fuels,

    improving their performance. Since the fuel becomes a premium treated, usable product, it can be reliably burnt without causing boiler or engine problems
