HFO composition more critical Heavy Fuel stabilitySlide7: Asphaltenes precipitation: Change in fuel composition (solubility issues during blending) Asphaltenes not dispersed anymore in fuel because of aging Practical issues Blockage of pipes, storage tank Fouling in refineries Plugging of filters and heat exchanger Combustion issues Stability issues Heavy Fuel stabilitySlide8: Determine the stability of the oil Spot test Hot filtration P-value Use asphaltenes dispersant Find the right additive Optimise the amount of additive What are the solutions ? Heavy Fuel stabilityHeavy Fuel stability: Spot test: Subjective Not accurate Hot filtration Does not actually measure stability P-value Time consuming Not appropriate for dispersant Current tests methods Heavy Fuel stabilityOil stability: Need for an accurate, fast and objective technique to measure the stability of oils Turbiscan® technology Oil stabilityTurbiscan Technology: Measurement of fast destabilisations Analysis of diluted to concentrated products High vertical resolution Acquisition of the : - Transmitted flux (T) and - Backscattered flux (BS) 1 Acquisition every 40 µm One scan lasts 20 seconds Turbiscan TechnologySlide12: One scan Height (mm) Backscattering (%) Acquisition time of each profile Height (mm) Multi scans Principle of measurement Turbiscan TechnologySlide13: Particle size variation Coalescence or flocculation Particle migration Sedimentation or creaming t=0 min t=15 min t=0 min t=15 min Turbiscan Technology Slide14: Contents Oil stability Crude oil emulsion Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) The Turbiscan technology Crude oil demulsification ASTM D7061 for HFO stability Slide15: Crude oil demulsification C.
