Effects Of Poor Residual Fuel On Marine Diesel Engine?

Proper ignition and combustion of fuel is the key to efficient marine engine. With use of residual fuel for ignition other less important factors become critical; such as the delay period between the fuel injection and ignition. With most of the commercial ships running on residual fuel it’s obvious to ask; How the use of […]
