Diesel oil refers to the blending of distillate oil produced by crude oil distillation, catalytic cracking, thermal cracking, hydrocracking, petroleum coking and other processes; it can also be produced by shale oil processing and coal liquefaction. It is a mixture of light petroleum products and complex hydrocarbons (carbon atom number is about 10-22). It includes light diesel (boiling point range is about 180-370 ℃) and heavy diesel (boiling point range is about 350-500 ℃).
Compared with gasoline, diesel oil has higher energy density and lower fuel consumption rate. Widely used in large vehicles, railway locomotives, ships and power generation.
Marine Diesel Oil is a blend of different middle distillates derived from the crude oil refining process. It is usually composed of light and heavy gas oil, light and heavy cycle oil, as well as vacuum gas oil. The chemical components are alkenes, cyclo alkanes and different carbon hydrides. The boiling range is between 200°C and 500°C.
The international trading names are DMA (Marine Gas Oil /MGO) and DMB (Marine Diesel Oil /MDO). The main differences between these fuels are their viscosities, densities, as well as their sulphur content.
All of SOAR’s liquid fuel engines are capable of burning distillated fuels. Of course, our medium speed dual fuel engines are capable of burning MFO blended with gas or if gas is not available, in 100% liquid fuel mode.
