A 15- to 60-gpm filter-separator test loop has been designed and built for research and development work on jet fuels, additive, and fuel handling equipment. Maximum flexibility has been provided in the loop and in the subsystems for blending and injecting additives, solid contaminants, and water. No materials that are harmful to the newer types of high-quality hydrocarbon fuels have been used in the fuel-wetted components of the loop, and the system consists primarily of aluminum and stainless steel. Initial operations with this loop have been directed toward development of valid single-element test procedures for rating fuel corrosion inhibitors and other additives. The results of the first thirteen tests in this facility have demonstrated its favorable operating characteristics.
