THE PRACTICAL EFFECTS ON EFFICIENCY AND PERFORMANCE OF USING FUEL ADDITIVES AND CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT WITH MARINE BOILERS

This paper reports on the findings of a MarAd sponsored contract to evaluate the effects of using a variety of different types of fuel oil additives and two techniques for making water-in-fuel emulsions. Data is presented on the effects of the products on boiler efficiency and fireside deposits. These results are discussed in comparison with the chemical rationale for each product used. A simple method for developing comparative boiler performance is discussed.
