Furnace Oil Concept & Uses :
Furnace oil (also known as heavy oil, marine fuel or furnace oil) is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation,
either as a distillate or a residue. In general terms, fuel oil is any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler
for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power, except oils having a flash point of approximately
42 °C (108 °F) and oils burned in cotton or wool-wick burners. Fuel oil is made of long hydrocarbon chains, particularly alkanes,
cycloalkanes and aromatics. The term fuel oil is also used in a stricter sense to refer only to the heaviest commercial fuel that
can be obtained from crude oil, i.e., heavier than gasoline and naphtha.
Small molecules like those in propane, naphtha, gasoline for cars, and jet fuel have relatively low boiling points, and they are
removed at the start of the fractional distillation process. Heavier petroleum products like Diesel and lubricating oil are much
less volatile and distill out more slowly, while bunker oil is literally the bottom of the barrel; in oil distilling, the only
things more dense than bunker fuel are carbon black feedstock and bituminous residue (asphalt), which is used for paving roads
and sealing roofs.
A furnace is a device used for high-temperature heating. The name derives from Latin word fornax, which means oven. The heat energy
to fuel a furnace may be supplied directly by fuel combustion, by electricity such as the electric arc furnace, or through induction
heating in induction furnaces.
