HFO Booster Module or HFO fuel conditioning module or viscosity booster


Heavy fuel oil (HFO) have a viscosity  listed as 180cst at 50 deg.C.The diesel engines  requires HFO with viscosity of about 25cst at 95-100 deg.C.So HFO Booster Module or HFO fuel conditioning module or viscosity booster used to reduce the viscosity of HFO.

Flow Diagram of HFO Booster Module Operation

Main Components
  1. Change over valve
  2. Mixing tank
  3. Fuel heater
  4. Back wash filter
  5. Viscosity controller
  6. Control panel
  7. Booster pump

General Description
Change over valve used to regulate the flow of either Diesel or HFO.Then through some valve and flow meter enter in mixing chamber where HFO mixed with Diesel.Fuel booster pump used to transfer fuel to HFO to heating chamber and heated by either electrical heater of steam then enter into filter(auto and manual backwash filters).Viscosity controller used to keep the viscosity in required value.
