Fuel Conditioning System
The Fuel Conditioning System,is aimed to maintain temperature, flow rate and pressures of the fuel going to the engine constant at set value. The system controls temperature of fuel supplied to the engine either by indirect cooling or heating. The fuel coming from main supply line is added to the fuel from return line of the engine and passes through a Heat Exchanger. A Process Controller maintains the set(desired) temperature, pressure(and thus flow) of fuel. Thereafter this fuel at set temperature is supplied to the engine feed pump. The fuel going to the engine feed pump is always in excess. Hence this excess amount of fuel is bypassed and sent to the air separator along with the return line fuel coming from the engine.
