National D2 Diesel has offices in Charlottesville, Virginia and Houston, Texas.
While D2 is also known as #2 Diesel, Russian Federation and Belarus refineries never use the name D2.
They use operation terms like Gasoil 0.2, Gasoil 0.1, ULSD/50-10 ppm/EN590 (EN590 means that standard of the quality of the product according EU regulation EN590.
We do not see D2 in the Spain since the beginning of 2010 when the Russian Federation began to export primarily Gasoil 0.1.
We may use the term D2 but it depends on the quality of gasoil under Russian Federation regulations. The export of Gasoil with sulfur content of 0.2 or more is forbidden. It allowed only for agriculture use in trucks on domestic farms and not the international market.
But we will call it D2 (Diesel #2) as most US brokers still continue to use that term.
The primary producer of D2 Diesel may be the Russian Federation. Click to view a map of the Spain pipeline.
The Arab countries import D2 for his or her local markets. Russian D2 is comparable to Arab D2 Diesel (technically).
D2 Diesel may be the fuel we run in our cars and trucks.
Diesel fuels are stopped working by this numeral system. To put it simply it breaks down the fuel categories by API gravity (weight & viscosity) and BTUs. ASTM and DIN spec unwinterized straight pump diesel is #2.
#1. #1 fuel oil, kerosene, jet fuel. #1 Diesel, #1 heating oil
#2. #2 diesel, #2 heating oil
#3. obsolete, no longer used, the ASTM no longer prints the specs for this
#4. #4 diesel, this is a heavy oil utilized in some large marine diesels
#5. #5 fuel oil, also known as bunker oil for ship boilers & diesels
#6. #6 heavy fuel oil, #3 heavy bunker oil, residuum, for boilers
What confuses people would be that the number systems overlap for diesel and fuel oil.
D2 Diesel fuel needs to meet more specifications when compared to fuel oils.
A lot of people think they are the exact same fuels, they can be.
D2 Diesel fuel can be substituted for fuel oil, but the opposite is not true.
National D2 Diesel is your ultimate global source for reliable supply of bulk D2 Diesel.
We deliver D2 at competitive prices simply because we work with the source refineries only.
National D2 Diesel offers direct in the refineries supplies of D2 to meet a growing demand around the world to the Majors and self finance buyers.
D2 Diesel is purchased in refineries around the world but primarily in the Russia Federation.
We are able to guarantee our buyers availability of D2 Diesel with all the "Gost" Quality or better, combined with the on time deliveries, due to our direct refinery's. The prices we are able to offer are amongst the best available on the market for D2 Diesel.
D2 Diesel fuel is distilled directly from petroleum.
Distillation yields some gasoline, however the yield would be inadequate without catalytic reforming, the industry more costly process.
D2 is recognized as safer than petrol in many applications.
Although diesel fuel will burn in open air using a wick, it will not explode and does not release a large amount of flammable vapor.
The reduced vapor pressure of d2 diesel is particularly advantageous in marine applications, where the accumulation of explosive fuel-air mixtures is a particular hazard. For the similar reason, diesel engines are immune to vapor lock.
For just about any given partial load the fuel efficiency (mass burned per energy produced) of a diesel engine remains nearly constant, as opposed to petrol and turbine engines designed to use proportionally more fuel with partial power outputs.
They generate less waste heat in cooling and exhaust.
Diesel engines can accept super- or turbo-charging pressure with no natural limit, constrained only through the strength of engine components.
This is unlike petrol engines, which inevitably suffer detonation at higher pressure.
The deadly carbon monoxide content of the exhaust is minimal, therefore diesel engines are utilized in underground mines.
