Furnace oil is a dark viscous residual fuel obtained by blending mainly heavier components from crude distillation unit, short residue and clarified oil from fluidized catalytic cracker unit. These types of oils enhance combustion for melting furnaces to ensure best results in the factories.
This dark, viscous residual fuel oil is obtained by blending residual products from various refining processes with suitable diluents. Usually middle distillates are used to obtain the required fuel oil grades.
• Used in smelters including the blast furnace , used to reduce iron ore to pig iron.
• Used to remelt metal in foundries.
