Wartsila Diesel Presents Paper At ASTM Symposium

Wartsila Diesel recently presented a paper entitled "Fuel Oil Characteristics That Are Considered Most Important For Modern Marine Diesel Engine Operation And Development" at the ASTM Marine Fuels Symposium held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, Fla.

The paper, authored by Karl Yannes of Wartsila Diesel, Inc., Greenwich, Conn., explains how Wartsila Diesel first approached the problems of burning today's residual fuels by designing their diesel engines from the very beginning to cope with poor quality marine fuels over the entire load range from start to stop. As a result of this modern development program and the proven operation of this advanced design, most of the characteristics of residual marine fuel oils that were generally considered important are no longer of importance to the future development of the Wartsila vasa engine types.

The paper goes on to explain how and why fuel oil characteristics, such as aromaticity, will increase in important for modern diesel engine operation and development and what design techniques can be utilized to overcome the problems that may be encountered both now and in the future.
