Heavy fuel oil

Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) is the part of the bottom range in crude distillation. HFO is used in heaters, boilers, furnaces, kilns and power generators owing to its price and high gross calorific value. The Net calorific value can be optimized depending on the preheating treatment prior to the burning process

HFO sold in Eritrea must meet the following critical parameters:

  • Kinematic viscosity @ 50 degrees centigrade of 180 cst maximum,
  • pour point of 27 degrees centigrade maximum,
  • Sulphur content of 3.7% maximum and a net calorific value of 41MJ/kg minimum.
