PERFORMANCE OF A DIESEL ENGINE OPERATING ON RAW COAL-DIESEL FUEL AND SOLVENT REFINED COAL-DIESEL FUEL SLURRIES. FINAL REPORT

Performance tests using an 11 kW single cylinder diesel engine were made to determine the effects of three different micronized coal-fuel oil slurries being considered as alternative fuels. Slurries containing 20, 32, and 40%-wt micronized raw coal in No. 2 fuel oil were used. Results are presented indicating the changes in the concentrations of SO/sub X/ and NO/sub X/ in the exhaust, exhaust opacity, power and efficiency, and in wear rates relative to operation on fuel oil No. 2. The engine was operated for 10 h at full load and 1400 rpm on all fuels except the 40%-wt slurry. This test was discontinued because of extremely poor performance. (ERA citation 05:024335)
