This report is concerned with the program of evaluating the effect of storage temperature, storage duration, and dissolved oxygen content on thermal stability quality of five aviation turbine fuels. Thermal stability quality of the storage fuels is being determined by the CRC-Modified SSF Coker and Phillips 5-ml Bomb procedure. To determine if Phillips 5-ml Bomb procedure is as reliable as the Coker and the Minex for measuring thermal stability quality, statistical analyses are shown in this report for the relationships that exist between the respective critical temperature ratings for 1 5-ml Bomb vs. Minex 2 5-ml Bomb vs. Coker 3 Coker vs. Minex.
