Fuels and their boiling points.
The boiling point of a substance is the temperature at which it can change state from a liquid to a gas throughout the bulk of the liquid.
The boiling point is defined as the temperature at which the saturated vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the surrounding atmospheric pressure.
Some fuels and their boiling points at atmospheric pressure:
- Boiling points of elements, products and chemical species at varying conditions.
- Boiler house topics, fuels like oil, gas, coal, wood - chimneys, safety valves, tanks - combustion efficiency.
- Recommended max flow velocity on the delivery (pressure) side when pumping boiling liquids.
- Exhaust and outlet temperatures fuels like natural gas, liquefied petroleum, diesel and more.
- Combustion air and flue gas for common fuels - coke, oil, wood, natural gas and more.
- Densities and specific volumes fuels like anthracite, butane, gasoil, diesel, coke, oil, wood and more.
- Higher and lower calorific values (heating values) for fuels like coke, oil, wood, hydrogen and others.
- Autoignition points for fuels and chemicals like butane, coke, hydrogen, petroleum and more.
- Density, specific heat, dynamic and kinematic viscosity and thermal conductivity of gasoline vs. temperature
- Boiling temperatures (°C and °F) with varying carbon numbers up to C33.
- Boiling temperatures for common liquids and gases - acetone, butane, propane and more.
- Liquefied Petroleum - LP - gas properties.
- Stable and efficient combustion requires correct mixture of fuels and oxygen.
