Cetane Number Improvers: Introduction

  • Cetane number improvers are chemicals used to increase the cetane number of the diesel fuel. Cetane number improvers decompose themselves at temperatures lower than that of the diesel fuel due to their chemical composition. Cetane number improvers’ decomposition leads to successive fuel reaction that results in the combustion of fuel at low temperatures. The effect of these improvers varies according to fuel type, quality of crude oil, and the way fuel is refined. Cetane number improvers can be added to the fuel at refineries, terminals, or on-board a vessel. Cetane number improvers, when added to an engine, burn fuel more efficiently and reduce emissions; provide more power per stroke; and decrease fuel consumption. They can be directly added or mixed with other fuel additives.
