One of many products of oil refining is kerosene. This colorless slightly oily liquid was especially popular in the 19th and early 20th century when used in kerosene lamps for lighting and in stoves for cooking. It still remains relevant today: kerosene can be bought in Moscow directly from the refinery.
Kerosene is widely used in various fields due to its properties:
- increases wear resistance of mechanisms,
- dissolves organic compounds,
- has a stable composition,
- quickly evaporates,
- has a high combustion temperature (up to 300 ° C),
- resistant to thermal oxidation.
The composition of kerosene includes compounds of sulfur, oxygen and nitrogen, as well as various types of hydrocarbons. During the distillation process, various parameters can be set and a product with the desired chemical and physical properties can be obtained. The cost of kerosene is lower than the cost of gasoline. The price of kerosene starts from 20 rubles per liter.
Modern kerosene, like fuel, is used in various fields:
1. Technical kerosene (KT-1 and KT-2).
This is the main raw material for the production of aromatic hydrocarbons. Kerosene for technical purposes is used in the process of burning ceramics, porcelain and glass, and also as a solvent in industry.
2. Aviation kerosene.
It is used in aviation for the lubrication of fuel systems of turbojet engines. In parallel, it acts as a cooling agent. High-quality aviation kerosene can be bought on the website of our company.
3. Rocket fuel.
From 1914 until now, the old good kerosene is used as a hydrocarbon fuel in rocket engines. And although it is planned to replace it with more efficient propane or methane, it is still coping with its task. It is used on the lower stages of launch vehicles not only in Russian, but also in American missile construction.
4. Lamp kerosene.
Kerosene lamps have not all gone to the past. Their modern varieties are still used in areas with unstable power supply or lack thereof. For these purposes, a special lighting kerosene is required. It is characterized by the optimum height of the non-smoking flame, low sulphur content, the maximum amount of light fractions to prevent carbon deposit and soot. From us you can buy kerosene of any purpose at a low price for private or industrial use.
