Abstract:

THE results of an investigation of amyl nitrate - an ignition accelerator - on the initial combustion characteristics of fuels in full-scale diesel engines are reported here.

The use of a good ignition accelerator such as amyl nitrate, the authors say, will benefit refiners, diesel-engine builders, and operators.

They report that a wider range of distillate stocks can be used, fuel properties can be controlled more conveniently, and more uniformity of product will be possible. Diesel fuels can also be supplied to meet special requirements such as low noise level and low pour point.
