ABOUT FUEL CONDITIONING
Enermulsion is an inline fuel conditioning system based on ultrasound technology that processes marine fuels and water, producing engine load optimized water in fuel emulsions, therefore increasing fuel efficiency and reducing engine emissions and maintenance.
To address the urgent issues of escalating fuel prices and stricter emission restrictions, TecnoVeritas developed Enermulsion, an innovative solution designed to reduce exhaust emissions (NOx, SOx, CO2, VOCs, PM) while being able to reduce fuel consumption.
REDUCE COSTS + MAKE VESSELS GREENER
The installation of Enermulsion requires no modifications to the engines and no interruptions to the engine operation, as it is an automated inline system, also no additional tanks are required.
It is easy to install and operate. As described on the scheme, it requires minor intervention on the existing fuel system, and its operation is fully controlled by its Electronic Control.
An Emulsified Fuel in simple terms means a mixture of water in fuel oil in such a way that small particles (around 6 µm) of water are formed in the fuel oil to produce a stable water-in-fuel emulsion. The main purpose of doping fuel oil with small quantities of water (up to 30%) is to improve combustion efficiency and thus thermal efficiency, resulting in better specific fuel consumption.
NOx EMISSIONS REDUCTION PRINCIPLE
NOx formation depends highly on combustion temperature. Temperature reduction in the combustion chamber is achieved with the addition of extremely small water droplets coated with fuel oil (homogeneous water in fuel emulsion). By changing the percentage of water in the emulsion, the temperature inside the combustion chamber can be controlled to inhibit NOx formation and hence fuel economy.
- Saves fuel by achieving better specific fuel consumption;
- Cleaner combustion eliminates soot deposition and reduces combustion and exhaust system maintenance costs;
- Avoid excessive port fees, fines and time by complying with emission regulations without the need for costly emissions control equipment.
