C2 Grade Kerosene (Regular Kerosene) Must Meet Strict Specifications – Read Them Here
Kerosene is a light distillate fuel meeting BS 2869 Class C2. It is used in oil-fired boilers for domestic heating and also in industrial processes requiring low sulphur fuel. These applications normally involve the use of a flue to discharge combustion products from the burning appliance.
C2 class kerosene is more widely available than C1 class kerosene, hence it is the standard grade – they differ in their sulphur content as the below spec sheet shows.
