Abstract:

A method was developed for the systematic analysis of the microcontaminations in average distillate fuels and residues which are formed in the fuel and deposited on the filtering elements and mechanisms of the fuel units. The method enables one to determine the amount and elementary composition of the organic and ash portions of the microcontaminations and residues, their ash and structural moisture, and, consequently, to judge of the causes of the clogging of filters, sources of formation of deposits on parts of the fuel regulating equipment as well as to evaluate the character of the contamination of the fuels in the process of storage and transportation.
