INCREASING THE WEAR-RESISTANCE PROPERTIES OF OIL-WATER EMULSIONS FOR MARINE INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES

The use of heavy fuel oil in marine medium-speed diesels results in several negative phenomena that cause disturbance of the working process. Consequently, in addition to the search for alternative fuels, increasing attention has been given the use of water-fuel emulsions. Such emulsions can increase engine economy, reduce carbon deposits, reduce the toxicity of spent gas, and decrease thermal stress on engine parts. The emulsions also have several drawbacks, however, that complicate fuel system design and necessitate additional devices to prepare and supply the emulsion to the diesel. Studies to learn more about the effects of operating on fuel-water emulsions and to investigate the introduction of additives as a way of dealing with the corrosion and additional wear that the emulsions cause are described.
