TCL have been conducting tests on their Posiflow system using various types of bio-fuel. These tests have included bio-diesel and Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO) made from plants such as Jatropha. The tests have included start-up and shutdown on bio-fuel with online changeover to and from the normal diesel fuel. The results have shown the Posiflow system to be ideally suited for use with alternative liquid fuels.
The design of the posiflow system makes it ideally suited for use with liquid fuels with a wide range of viscosities and lubricity from volatile Naptha to high viscosity heavy fuel oil. Providing better than 1% accuracy in fuel metering.
