AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF A COAL-SLURRY FUELED DIESEL ENGINE
A single cylinder 1360 cc diesel engine was operated on a slurry of 15 percent by weight solvent refined coal and jet fuel. The coal was pulverized to a nominal size of 2 micrometers. Test results indicate that the slurry fuel provides engine power and fuel consumption levels comparable to those of diesel and jet fuels. Although wear rates appeared moderate, conventional fuel injection systems are inadequate for long-term use. /GMRL/
