Boiler fuel

Boiler fuel is a heavy oil fraction, which is obtained after distillation of gasoline, kerosene and gas oil (diesel) fractions. It looks like dense and non-transparent, dark-brown liquid. Depending on the physiochemical properties of oil from which it is obtained and its purpose, the mazut is classified as oil, lubricants, fuel, paraffin. In the refineries it is used as a raw material for producing lubricating oil or light oil extraction by cracking (petrol, diesel, kerosene). It is also used as fuel in power plant boilers or for heating in industrial boilers, as well as diesel fuel in powerful slow-moving engines, especially in the navy.
