Heavy Fuel Oil Calculation Program
|Heavy fuel oils, HFO, consist largely of residues from crude
oil refining. These residues are blended with suitable gas oil fractions in
order to achieve the viscosity required for convenient handling. Since the
sulfur contained in the crude oil is concentrated in the residue material,
heavy fuel oils sulfur level naturally is rather high. Furthermore, heavy fuel
oils may contain large quantities of heavy metals such as nickel and vanadium
and also sediments and water. For these reasons it is utmost important that the
engineer easily can calculate the fuel oils appropriate operation temperature,
its energy and its ignition quality.

The initial values are not default settings, but recently used values. In other words,
the Fuel Oil Calculation Program will remember what you did last.
Fuel oil calculations are important for anyone responsible for the efficient operational management of heavy fuel oil fired boilers, fired heaters and diesel oil power stations.
The Fuel Oil Calculation Program is designed to help with the calculation necessary for the quantity measurement of oil products and for the efficient handling and use of heavy fuel oils. While intended principally for ships staff it should also be found useful by those ashore in ship owners organizations, engine and equipment manufacturer, ship builder etc.
The basic idea with The Fuel Oil Calculation Program is that anyone should be able to easily get the most important informations about their fuel oil.
The SI-units in the program can easily be converted by means of the Units conversion program.
