51316-7307-Impact of Biocomponents in the Fuel and Heating Oil on the Compatibility of Sealing Materials

The objective of this research was to determine the resistance of frequently used sealing materials in fuels and heating oil with and without admixtures such as E10, diesel fuel with 5 % biodiesel, non-aged and 2 year aged B10 (heating oil with 10 % biodiesel), pure diesel, standard heating oil and premium grade fuel Super plus at 20 °C, 40 °C and 70 °C.

The objective of this research was to determine the resistance of frequently used sealing materials such as FKM, FVMQ, VMQ, EPDM, CR, CSM, IIR, PA, NBR and PUR in fuels and heating oil with and without admixtures of biogenic sources such as E10, diesel fuel with 5 % biodiesel, non-aged and 2 year aged B10 (heating oil with 10 % biodiesel), pure diesel, standard heating oil and premium grade fuel Super plus at 20 °C, 40 °C and 70 °C. Mass, tensile strength and breaking elongation of the test specimens were determined before and after the exposure for 84 days in the fuels. The visual examination of some elastomer test specimens clearly showed the great volume increase until break or partial dissolution. Shore hardness A and D (for PA) were determined before and after exposure of the test specimens in the biofuels for 42 days. There is not determined a threshold for the reduction in tensile properties and Shore hardness in the international standards. Therefore a threshold of 15 % was determined for the evaluation of the compatibility. In summary, it can be therefore stated that the chemical resistance of the fluoropolymers FKM and FVMQ in fuels and biofuels is the best one.
