Abstract:

A series of Advanced Reduced Scale Fuel System Simulator ARSFSS Runs evaluating the impact of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters FAME contamination on the thermal stability of a Jet A additized with a military package of additives, a JP-8 and a JP-5, were accomplished. BFA wetted-wall temperature change profiles were obtained and carbon deposition was measured. It is therefore generally concluded that FAME has no significant impact on either Jet A with the military package of additives or JP-8 or JP-5, although the data is less conclusive for the JP-5 than for the Jet A with the military package of additives and the JP-8.
