Economy and Emissions Characteristics of Emulsified Diesel Fuels from Diesel Engine
To meet demands for improvements in the CO,NOx and smoke intensity and fuel economy from diesel engine,the emulsified diesel fuel are choose as alternative fuel .It is prepared through selecting appropriate compound-surfactants on the basis of the HLB (hydrophilic and lipop- hilic balance) value.Comparative experiments between the emulsified fuels and diesel are undertook based on engine bench test in the model 295A diesel engine without any modification. The results indicate that smoke intensity and NOx emissions are reduced greatly when using the emulsified fuels ,especially for those with glucose Solution.Besides,The fuel consumption of the emulsified fuels s are less than that of pure diesel and the economy characteristic from diesel engine is better.
