About Light Diesel Oil:

Light Diesel Oil, or LDO, is basically a blend of components from the distillation process of diesel. It is utilised in engines with less than 750 rpm, for example, in boilers and furnaces. LDO is also recognised as distillate fuel or marked oil since it is marked with a colouring substance. The flash point, that is, the lowest temperature of ignition for LDO is 66o C.

Chemical Formula of Light Diesel Oil: 

  • CxHy 


  • Distillate Fuel
  • Marked Oil

Industrial Uses: 

  • Boilers
  • Furnaces
  • Air pre-heaters
  • Lower rpm engines
  • Lift irrigation pump sets
  • Fertiliser plants.
  • Bunker
  • DG (diesel generator) sets

Production Processes: 

  • Production of Light Diesel Oil via Waste Oil.

The production process of LDO involves the addition of a liquid-phase catalyst into a liquid-phase catalytic cracking furnace and addition of a gas-phase catalyst into a gas-phase cracking furnace to gasify the waste oil by heating at high-temperature. This is followed by its collection and then cooling using a cooling furnace to obtain light crude oil. This light crude oil is further processed to finally form Light Diesel Oil.
