THE EFFECT OF USING AN ADDITIVE ON THE COMBUSTION BEHAVIOUR AND SOOT EMISSION OF MARINE FUELS

An additive has been tested for its effect on the combustion behaviour and soot (exhaust gas) emission of marine fuels under shipboard conditions in a slow-rotating, 2-stroke crosshead diesel engine 6RTA72. Analysis of the determined combustion processes showed that when the additive was used the combustion was completed sooner and the combustion turnover reduced whilst process and exhaust gas temperatures were lowered at the same time. Moreover, reduced soot (exhaust gas) emission was recorded.
