Abstract:

The objective of the work described was to determine the chemistry of deposit formation in jet turbine fuel systems. This involved the determination of the nature and method of formation of deposit precursors that should have higher molecular weights and polarities than the fuels. Three approaches have been tried. Oxidations of refluxing n-decane at 155C Comparison of distillation residues of a standard fuel and removal of higher molecular weight products from other oxidation products by precipitation from pentane at -78C. The present status of the jet fuel deposit problem is summarized.
