Abstract:

The report covers a study of the effects of seven corrosion inhibitors on the coalescing characteristics of the DOD-type filtercoalescer elements used to decontaminate liquid hydrocarbon fuels. These corrosion inhibitors are specified for use in military jet fuels, Specification MIL-I-25017, Inhibitors, Corrosion, Fuel Soluble. The report concludes that The corrosion inhibitors did not produce any adverse effects on the ability of military standard filtercoalescer elements to remove 1-percent water from JP-5 fuel that had been treated with fullers earth The free-water content of the fuel passed through the filtercoalescer elements during the 1-percent water injection tests ranged from 0 to 2.0 parts per million ppm which is within specification limits The WSIMs of the inhibited JP-5 fuel during the tests were between 16 and 70 The low, free-water content did not correlate directly with the relatively low WSIMs and The WSIM cannot be used solely to determine the ability of a military standard filtercoalescer element to decontaminate inhibited JP-5 after it has been treated with fullers earth. However, the WSIM does give an indication of the ability of a filtercoalescer element to decontaminate uninhibited JP-5.
