Diesel fuel is a liquid that is used as fuel in the internal combustion engine and is produced from gas-oil-kerosene fractions of direct rectification of oil. There is a distilled, low-viscosity diesel fuel used for high-speed engines, and a high-viscosity, residual fuel used for low-speed units installed on tractors, vessels, etc.
Depending on the solidification temperature and turbidity, diesel fuel is divided into winter and summer types.
SUMMER TYPE: The density is 86O kg/m3. Flash temperature: 62 °C. Solidification temperature: -5 °C.
WINTER TYPE: The density is 84O kg/m3. Flash temperature: 40 °C. Solidification temperature: -35 °C.
ARCTIC TYPE: Density 830 kg/m3. Flash temmperature: 35 °C. Solidification temperature: -55 °C.
According to ADR UN No. 1202 and refers to goods of the 3rd class of hazard.
