Abstract

The present data article is centered on the research work which examines the effect of fuel preheating on DI diesel engine fuelled with Fish Oil Ethyl Ester (FOEE). Kirloskar TV1 model water cooled diesel engine with eddy current dynamometer was used in the experiment. Crude fish oil was converted into FOEE using transesterification process. The physical and chemical properties of FOEE were examined based on American Standards for Testing Materials (ASTM) biodiesel standards and data's were offered. To achieve better engine characteristics, a fuel preheater was designed and fabricated to work at different temperatures (60, 70 and 80 °C). Fuel preheating temperatures were achieved using three different shell and tube heat exchanger at various dimensions. Heat exchanger was designed to work with waste heat obtained from the engine exhaust. Engine tailpipe emission was recorded using AVL make 444 di-gas analyzer and smoke was measured using AVL make 437C free accelerometer smoke meter. Data related to fuel samples like neat diesel, FOEE blends with and without fuel preheating were presented.
