Effect of Mineral Composite Materials with Far Infrared Radiation on Diesel Oil Combustion
The powders of mineral materials with far infrared radiation (CTTP) were prepared using rare earth cerium nitrate, tourmaline and transition metal oxide by coprecipitation, and calcination at 1073K for 3h. The inorganic-organic mineral composite materials with far infrared radiation (CTTR) were prepared from CTTP and resin according to the weight ratio of 4:6. It was found by characterization with scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscope (FTIR), that the infrared radiance of the CTTR was 93%. The effects of the CTTR on the surface tension and the kinematic viscosity of diesel oil as well as the effects of the CTTR on oil consumption and air pollutant emissions of oil-burning boiler were investigated in this paper. The results showed that the diesel oil dealted with the CTTR resulted in the strengthenty of molecular movement and the decrease of intermolecular contacts. In laboratory, the surface tension of diesel oil was reduced from 27.287 to 27.254 mN/m and the kinematic viscosity of diesel oil was reduced from 2.85 to 2.81 mm2s-1. The oil-saving rate of the RBS•VH-1.5 boiler treated with the CTTR could reach 4.57%, and the reducing rates of CO and NO in the exhaust gas were 1.30 and 4.08%, respectively.
