Abstract

This study focused on determination of main characteristics for emulsion fuel making device concept in which can eliminate emulsion fuel main weakness; stability issues and high dependency of surfactant. The concept is named as RealTime Water Emulsion Fuel Supply System (RTES) and can be utilized for the diesel engine and burner. The concept of RTES consists of fuel and water which being stored in different units. The two immiscible liquids will be transferred quantitatively and instantaneously being emulsified by a mixing system before the resulting emulsion fuel is injected into the combustion chamber. This system is attached close to the engine or burner fuel delivery system so that the newly developed emulsion fuel made from that system is transferred instantaneously into the combustion chamber. The RTES is expected to produce an emulsion fuel without using surfactant and give some improvement to the diesel engine with the increase of thermal efficiency and reduction of fuel consumption as compared to diesel fuel. In addition, as other surfactant added emulsion fuel operates in diesel engine, Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) in exhaust emission is also expected to be reduced significantly over neat diesel fuel (D2).
