Rudolf Diesel originally designed the diesel engine to use coal dust as fuel Cheap Alan Trammell Jersey , and then experimented with vegetable oil (biodiesel) before the petroleum industry came out with the product now known as D2 diesel fuel.
The first diesel-engine automobile trip was completed on January 6, 1930. The trip was from Indianapolis to New York City, a distance of nearly 800 miles. This feat helped prove the usefulness of the diesel engine design. It has been used in millions of vehicles since that time
D2 diesel fuel accounted for about 7% of all energy used in the United States in 2009 and 17% of all petroleum products, the second largest petroleum product after gasoline.
Diesel fuel is important to America’s economy, quality of life, and national security. As a transportation fuel, it offers a wide range of performance, efficiency, and safety features. Diesel D2 fuel contains between 18% and 30% more energy per gallon than gasoline. Diesel technology also offers a greater power density than other fuels Wholesale Detroit Tigers Jerseys , so it packs more power per volume.
In agriculture, diesel D2 fuels more than two-thirds of all farm equipment in the United States, because diesel engines can perform demanding work. It is also the most widely used fuel for public buses and school buses throughout the United States.
America’s construction industry depends on D2 diesel’s power. Diesel engines are able to do demanding construction work, like lifting steel beams, digging foundations and trenches, drilling wells, paving roads and moving soil – safely and efficiently. Diesel also powers the movement of America’s freight in trucks, trains, boats and barges; 94% of our goods are shipped using diesel-powered vehicles.
The military also uses diesel for fighting vehicles like tanks and trucks Wholesale Tigers Jerseys , because diesel fuel is less flammable and explosive and less likely to stall than gasoline.
Diesel fuel is also used in diesel engine-generators to generate electricity. Many industrial facilities, large buildings, institutional facilities, hospitals, and electric utilities have diesel generators for backup and emergency power supply. Most remote villages in Alaska use diesel generators for their electricity.
At refineries, crude oil is separated into different fuels including gasoline, jet fuelkerosene, lubricating oil, heating oil Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys , and diesel.
Heating oil and D2 diesel fuel are a closely related product called distillates. The main difference between the two fuels is that heating oil is allowed to contain more sulfur than diesel fuel.
D2 diesel is used as a combustible for diesel motors.
And comes in two specications: 0.01 and 0.02.
Diesel fuel is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines.
The most common is a specific fractional distillate of petroleum fuel oil, but alternatives that are not derived from petroleum, such as biodiesel, biomass to liquid (BTL) or gas to liquid (GTL) diesel, are increasingly being developed and adopted.
To distinguish these types, petroleum-derived diesel is increasingly called petrodiesel.
Ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) is a standard for defining diesel fuel with substantially lowered sulfur contents.
As of 2007, almost every diesel fuel available in the United States of America, Canada and Europe is the ULSD type.
In the UK, diesel is commonly abbreviated DERV Cheap Tigers Jerseys , standing for Diesel Engined Road Vehicle.
The major specification we sell is Gasoil 0.2% and is produced from oil fraction mixtures obtained from primary and secondary crude oil processing.
The quality of our D-2 (L0.262) delivered under contract meets the requirements of GOST 305-82.
D2 diesel is also known as Gasoil 0.2 and Gasoil 0.1 by the Russian Federation, Azerbaijan, Republic of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Romania and Belarus.
D2 Diesel fuel is used in diesel engines (internal combustion engines with compression-ignition). Depending on the conditions of application set three brands of diesel fuel:
L (Summer) – diesel fuel recommended for operation at an ambient temperature of O ? C and above;
3 (Winter) – recommended for diesel operation at an ambient temperature of minus 20? C and above (pour point of fuel is not higher than minus 35 ? C) and minus 30 ? C and above (pour point of fuel is not higher than minus 45 ? C);
A (Arctic) – diesel fuel recommended for operation at an ambient temperature of minus 50 ? C and above.
Available in two groups of diesel fuels:
1) low-viscosity distillates, used in high-speed uprated engines;
2) high-viscosity residual used in low-speed diesel engines.
GOST is the Russian system of standards, much like ASTM, for example.
D2 Diesel fuel is distilled directly from petroleum.
Distillation yields some gasoline, but the yield would be inadequate without catalytic reforming Wholesale Daniel Norris Jersey , which is a more costly process.
Diesel D2 is considered safer than petrol in many applications.
Although d2 diesel fuel will burn in open air using a wick, it will not explode and does not release a large amount of flammable vapor.
The low vapor pressure of d2 diesel is especially advantageous in marine applications, where the accumulation of explosive fuel-air mixtures is a particular hazard. For the same reason, diesel engines are immune to vapor lock.
For any given partial load the fuel efficiency (mass burned per energy produced) of a diesel engine remains nearly constant, as opposed to petrol and turbine engines which use proportionally more fuel with partial power outputs.
They generate less waste heat in cooling and exhaust.
Diesel engines can accept super- or turbo-charging pressure without any natural limit, constrained only by the strength of engine components.
This is unlike petrol engines, which
