Abstract:

Cryogenic sampling was used to sample hydrocarbon exhaust from a T-56 turbine engine combustor under conditions simulating idle power of several different aircraft. Parameters studied were fuel type--JP4, JP5, and JP8--and the combustor operating pressure--15, 33, 50, and 75 psig. Samples were analyzed with a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer-data system which separated 148 compounds the hydrocarbon content of the exhaust was inversely proportional to the inlet pressure and directly proportional to the boiling point and density of the fuel type.
