Refined Petroleum Products
Refined Petroleum Products are usually grouped into four categories: light distillates (LPG, gasoline, naphtha), middle distillates (kerosene, jet fuel, diesel), heavy distillates and residuum (heavy fuel oil, lubricating oils, wax, asphalt). Here are some of the products we supply:
Kerosene and Related Jet Aircraft Fuels
Jet fuel, aviation turbine fuel (ATF), or avtur, is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines. It is colorless to straw-colored in appearance. The most commonly used fuels for commercial aviation are Jet A and Jet A-1, which are produced to a standardized international specification. The only other jet fuel commonly used in civilian turbine-engine powered aviation is Jet B, which is used for its enhanced cold-weather performance.
Wholesale supply of Gasoline, Diesel, Jet Fuel, and Lubricants.
Diesel fuel, or diesel oil, is derived from petroleum, just like gasoline. However, it is safer because it does not ignite as easily, and also more efficient because it generates more energy per gallon. This type of diesel comes in two grades: Diesel #1, or 1-D, and Diesel #2, or 2-D. While Diesel #2 is used for most engines, Diesel #1 flows better at cold temperatures.
Biodiesel is derived from agricultural products, such as rapeseed oil and soybean oil. While blends containing up to 30 percent biodiesel can be used in diesel engines, only those with 5 percent biodiesel and 95 percent diesel oil can be used without voiding manufacturer warranties in the United States.
Fuel oil, (also known as marine fuel or furnace oil) is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue. Broadly speaking, fuel oil is any liquid fuel that is burned in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power, except oils having a flash point of approximately 40 °C (104 °F) and oils burned in cotton or wool-wick burners. In this sense, diesel is a type of fuel oil. Fuel oil is made of long hydrocarbon chains, particularly alkanes, cycloalkanes and aromatics. The term fuel oil is also used in a stricter sense to refer only to the heaviest commercial fuel that can be obtained from crude oil, i.e., heavier than gasoline and naphtha.
The lubricating oil in a car is used for keeping the moving parts of the engine from grinding together and creating friction. A well-lubricated engine runs smoother, takes less gas to fuel and runs cooler.
