Abstract:

A test program was performed to determine the feasibility of blending a proven static dissipator additive into a fuel at a refinery, and transferring the product through a long distribution system to the using activity. Test data obtained during the 8 months of the test program show that the conductivity of the fuel decreases to an unacceptable level from refinery to using activity, specific models of fuel quantity probes are adversely affected, and some types of corrosion inhibitors influence the fuel conductivity when used in combination with static dissipator additive ASA-3.
