Diesel fuel and water emulsifier designed for diesel fuel contaminated with water mixing to improve fuel combustion properties, it could also be used as mixing device for water and diesel fuel mixture. Examined literature describing the oil and water mixture emulsifiers. Analyzed the experiments related to diesel fuel and water emulsion combustion and distribution of its water volume. It has been developed and described principle emulsifier scheme. Calculated and modeled piezoelectric ultrasonic vibration actuator, which causes cavitations in mixing chamber. Ultrasonic vibration actuator is designed for the cavitation emulsion processing. Comparing experimental data with calculations obtained less than 10% deviation from the theoretical resonance frequency values. Performed experimental testing of ultrasonic vibration actuator to determine its resonance values. It also performed test of the distribution of water drops in diesel fuel using a microscope. Diesel fuel combustion effluents is one of the major problems stopping air pollution, especially in more populated areas.
