Internal combustion engines working on the compressed ignition principle require good timing for the fuel to auto-ignite. A parameter called cetane number measures the fuel ignition quality. For a given engine design, a minimum cetane number is required.
Meeting the minimum cetane number requirement ensures no ignition delay, lower noise even in the indirect injection arrangement, more complete combustion and less soot and unburned hydrocarbon emissions.
Today’s modern high-pressure diesel engines require a higher cetane number. Refineries with insufficient means to produce fuel with a high cetane number would find the use of cetane number improver convenient and profitable.
Cestoil Chemical offers the most cost-effective packages of Cetane Number Improver based on 2-Ethylhexyl nitrate and peroxide chemistry in the marketplace.
