Furnace Oil

Furnace Oil is one of the cheapest fuels available for industrial use. It is a by-product of petroleum refineries. Used as industrial oil, Furnace Oil is a dark viscous residual fuel obtained by blending mainly heavier components from crude distillation unit, short residue clarified oil from fluidized catalytic cracker unit. While processing the CRUDE Oil, FO (Furnace Oil) is one of the products along with other petroleum fuels like HSD, Petrol etc. Typically it has a calorific value as 10000 cal/gm. The furnaces which are used mainly for heating or pre-heating a large quantity of metal, are the main users of FO.

Benefits of Furnace Oil

  • Cheapest petroleum fuel available – gives most heat per litre at lowest cost.
  • Readily stored – occupies half the space of coal for equivalent heat content.
  • Easily handled, regulated and controlled.
  • Less maintenance than coal-fired equipment.
  • Less labour required than with coal, no stoking, ash removal or conveyors required.
  • Less capital expenditure than equivalent coal plant.
  • Clean operation – no fly ash or dust problems, easy smoke control.
  • Longer furnace and boiler life; less depreciation.

Applications of Furnace Oil

  • As fuel for Power Generation in DG Sets
  • As fuel for Boilers/ Furnaces/ Air preheater/ Any other Heaters
  • Fuel for Bunkering
  • Fuel/ Feedstock in Fertilizer Plants
