KNOW ABOUT THE VISCOSITY OF FURNACE OIL
Furnace oil or Fuel oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate and as a residue. Residual Fuel oil(RFO) or heavy fuel oil(HFO) is the remainder of the crude oil after gasoline and distillate fuel oils have been extracted through distillation. The viscosity is highly significant since it indicates both the relative ease with which the oil can be pumped and ease of automization. Kin Viscosity at 38 degrees centigrade is 1.4 cSt.
