Description
Diesel fuel is a middle distillate obtained from the atmospheric distillation of crude oil. Its ignition quality is known by the Cetane Index or the Cetane Number. The first is calculated based on certain properties of the distillation, while the second is more accurate because it is measured in an engine under standard conditions.
Uses
It is used as fuel in diesel engines operating under high-demand conditions; for electric and mechanical power generation; and in furnace burners, driers and boilers.
