Energy Mass Balance

To achieve a Diesel Fuel saving, we all know that every piece of energy saved is going to assist with this result (Keeping in context that you’re already on a ‘Diesel’ website). What many people don’t realise however is that when dealing with the Combustion Engine, there are two types of Energy saving available:
Energy Efficiency – Don’t use it so you don’t have to produce it
Energy Conversion – Less energy (Diesel) into the engine for the same or more energy out (kinetic + torque).

In our experience, all the inquiries we have had about the KRAL fuel consumption meters have been  generated by switched on operators trying to substantiate their proposed savings on the back of EFFICIENCY trials and programs established.

When looking at their Energy usage however, their measure of units has always been fuel (as that is what costs $$$), but they’ve missed a MASSIVE process first. To be able to use the energy, first you’ve had to convert that Diesel into movement, or electricity or anything really.

Diesel Engines range in thermal efficiency from 30% to 45%. That means that of the diesel fuel you’ve purchased, 55-70% went out the exhaust! And what you’re thinking is, is my total efficiency going toward reducing that remaining 30-45% – unfortunately it’s a yes.

Whilst we acknowledge that efficiency savings are Extremely important, we feel it is only necessary that we bring to your attention the other part of the equation, and the most technically inefficient step in the entire process.
