- The importance of the diesel engine as a means of propulsion in the marine industry cannot be overstated. In addition, the need for higher quality fuels for use in diesel relative to steam turbine equipment also has been long recognized. The petroleum industry has endeavored to abstract the maximum quantities of ¿̐ưclean¿̐ư products from the crude barrel by more extensive use of fluid catalytic cracking and visbreaking processes. This trend has resulted in a reduction in the quality of the intermediate fuel oil supplied to the marine industry. The need for quality monitoring of marine fuels has received considerable attention over the past few years.
