Almost all heavy oils used will eventually be mixed. This is an increasing development in connection with the lowering of sulfur levels and increased demand for low-sulfur fuels. During mixing or subsequent storage, reactions may occur that result in sludge formation. Filter Clogging, reduced injection performance, poor combustion and even damage to the piston rings and liners can occur.
Here, the early detection, with the help of mobile test systems, the miscibility of the fuels is a very good tool for daily on-board practice.
