HEAVY FUEL OPERATION AND INFLUENCE ON ENGINE DESIGN

The Author, of B & W Diesel A/S, Copenhagen, comments on the extremely variable quality of heavy fuels which have to be accepted in present trading conditions, and gives a table specifying the extreme and least favourable fuel-quality criteria for which M.A.N.- B & W low-speed engines are designed. The table covers the poorest fuel qualities available today. Sections of the paper then discuss various aspects of heavy fuel operation under the headings: Fuel treatment on board; Fuel oil cleaning; Engine design; Cylinder liner; Piston; Exhaust valve; and Fuel oil system. Some design features of B & W engine, introduced as countermeasures to poor fuel quality, are illustrated.
