EVALUATION OF TECHNIQUES FOR IMPROVING COMBUSTION ABOARD SHIP. PART I: MARINE BOILERS

This report describes the evaluation of ten (10) generic commercial fuel oil additives and two (2)fuel conditioning devices. Testing was performed aboard six (6) converted ex-"Mariner" class (C4-S-la) containerships owned and operated by United States Lines. The Report discusses the rationale for the chemical make-up of the various additive and the use of water-in-fuel emulsions in boilers. The products are ranked according to their effect on economy of boiler operation. Guidance is presented to assist the shipowner in using products similar to those evaluated. The comparative effects on boiler fouling and slag buildup are discussed in the format of boiler-inspection reports. Order from BSRA as No. 49,485.
