Paper Title:
Admixture of Used Engine Oil with DPK (Kerosene) as an Alternative Fuel for Foundry Shop
  Abstract

This study presents the experimental results of using admixture of used engine oil and kerosene as an alternative fuel in foundry shops. In this experiment, several proportions of used engine oil (well filtered) and kerosene were measured to make 1000ml per mixture using a calibrated beaker. Each mixture was fired in a furnacensuring atomization, ignition and combustion in a timed set up. Results of the experiment showed that admixtures of 100%, 95% and 90% volume of used engine oil gave low pour point hence were incombustible. 85%, 80% and 75% volume of used engine oil admixtures gave carburized flame. While 55% and below of used engine oil volume of admixtures gave oxygenated flame. 57% - 70% volume of used engine oil admixtures produced neutral flame which is ideal for melting. Of the latter proportions, 70% of used engine oil admixture had the highest heat content 70,780 kj/kg and the lowest cost. Hence this admixture is recommended as an effective admixture for fuel substitution in the foundry shop.
