Fuel Oil Reforming & Homogenizer System(FRHS)

A system which purifies fuel by effectively filtering out water, sludge and particles from MFO(HFO) and red ucing the viscosity so that the MFO(HFO) can be used as fuel oil for the HSD-powered engine of 1,500 HP or higher

•Distinctiveness of RHS system

It finely grinds sludge and particles with the Homogenizer System, controls the viscosity,  simultaneously  filters  out  water  and  pollutant  particles  with  the  Ultra Sonic  and  Plasma  System,  and  accomplishes  the  best  efficiency  of  viscosity maintenance technology with the Neodymium Magnetic/F.

Filtering out particles and water

It filters out sludge, particles and water, which can remain after grinding, by centrifugally separating them to obtain the best efficiency to be used as fuel oil.

1.Intended use of FRHS.

FRHS is a device that enables the generator of 1 MW or higher, which is used in developing countries such as South East Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, to use MFO (HFO) as its engine fuel instead of light oil, thereby giving users the benefits of MFO’s cheaper price. Since MFO (HFO) is generally 20 to 40% cheaper than light oil as well as it has better fuel efficiency of 8 to 12% depending on the calory, approximately 30% of the electricity generation cost can be saved by using FRHS.


2. Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO)? Marin Fuel Oil (MFO)?

(The same type) Considering that MFO (HFO) mainly consists of residual oils and is not chemically refined, the quality is relatively low among petroleum products. However, it is produced with an obvious purpose of reprocessing it to make lubricant, asphalt, petroleum cokes, etc.

Moreover, MFO (HFO) features less heat loss, easy combustion control, and simple ignition and extinguishment, which makes it widely used as a power source of a large-scale engine or a heat source of a boiler. Although MFO (HFO) has a high heating value and is economical due to its cheap price, its high viscosity and poor fluidity at room temperature make it difficult to be supplied and handled as fuel. Therefore, it is mainly used for large boilers in the industry.

It should be heated to about 50℃ while being transported and used to make it flow smoothly. MFO-A, MFO-B and MFO-C (HFO-A, HFO-B, HFO-C) are the fuels that are produced by mixing MFO (HFO) with light distillate (diesel distillate mostly) to improve the ease-of-use. MFO-A (HFO-A) is mainly used for small industrial boilers and small and middle vessels; MFO-B (HFO-B) for middle boilers and middle vessels; and MFO-C (HFO-C) for large boilers.

According to the Energy Conversion Factors of the Enforcement Regulations of the Energy Act, the total heating value of MFO-A (HFO-A) is 9,300 kcal/L, MFO-B (HFO-B) is 9,650kcal/L, and MFO-C (HFO-C) is 9,800kcal/L, among which the bunker C has the highest heating value. As mentioned above, however, as they are difficult to handle, the size and characteristics of equipment should be considered when choosing an appropriate fuel
