Thermal cracking of JP-4 and combat gasoline to give a mixture containing approximately 85-90 per cent H2 with the balance methane is readily accomplished at about 1100C. A strong temperature dependence is observed in the approach to equilibrium. Hydrogen yield improves as carbon build up in the reactor increases. As the time of contact increases flow rate decreases, the product becomes richer in H2. An experimental JP-4 fuel-fired reactor was designed and built. It gave products consistent with the results obtained in the electrically heated tubes. Nickel and Inconel were found to be the best materials of construction. Author
