Kerosene as a Historically Reliable Fuel
For centuries, kerosene has been one of the most reliable combustible oils with a wide range of uses. Known commonly as lamp oil (and in some regions, referred to as paraffin), kerosene is a thin, clear liquid made from processed petroleum, branched and straight chain alkanes and naphthenes. As a fuel with deep roots internationally, kerosene’s properties are very well understood, making it a safe and reliable option. While historically used for countless household applications, industries were quick to adopt kerosene as a staple because its unique qualities carry over to multiple applications.
Industrial Applications for Quality Kerosene
Our highly refined, low-odor K-1 grade fuel is ideally suited for kerosene-burning heaters, lanterns and stoves. It meets or exceeds ASTM D standard for low-sulfur, water-clear kerosene. Traditionally, kerosene has the following key functions in household and industry:
- Heat and light. One of the oldest applications for kerosene is heating and lighting. Kerosene has played a key role as a heating fuel for cooking and continues to be a staple for campers and hikers. It is also valuable as a heat source in the event of power failure.
- Cooking. Kerosene is a crucial cooking fuel in some regions and is used for recreational outdoor cooking in others. As with heating and lighting, kerosene can be valuable for cooking during power failures.
- Transportation. Kerosene is commonly combined with other chemicals and fuel sources for use in jet engines. It is also sometimes used as an additive in diesel fuel, with the beneficial properties of preventing gelling or waxing in colder temperatures.
