Example text

Specifications are set to control these properties based on their vapor pressure and distillation. The Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) is vapor pressure of gasoline at 100°F. RVP and boiling range determine the ease of starting, the engine warmup, and the vapor lock temperature. The RVP of various gasoline grades varies between 35 and 84 kPa. The RVP of gasoline is adjusted according to the ambient conditions of the region where the fuel is being used. RVP is adjusted to a lower value during the summer and a higher value during the winter months.

Naphtha used as petrochemical feedstock must be highly paraffinic (minimum 70 vol %) with low aromatic content (less than 11 vol %).

Net heat of combustion is 20,000 Btu/lb or 11,300 kcal/kg, which is much more than natural gas on a per unit volume basis. Using naphtha in place of gas requires adjustment of operating conditions to avoid high boiler temperatures of 2000°F or more. Also, use of naphtha results in higher corrosion rates due to the sulfur in naphtha, which in turn causes shorter run length or more plant maintenance. 69 CHAPTER 3 GASOLINE Gasoline may be defined as the fuel derived from crude oil, in the boiling range of 100 to 400°F, for use in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
