Abstract:

A study was conducted to determine the degree of correlation between aviation turbine fuel thermal stability test methods ASTM D 1660 and ASTM D 3241. The primary parameters investigated in the study were tube deposit and filter pressure drop breakpoint temperatures as evaluated on the ASTM-CRC Fuel Coker and the JFTOT thermal stability test devices. Correlations are classified by fuel type JP-4 and kerosene type, tube deposit rating method Visual, Spun 18 and Spot 20, and order of curve fit linear and quadratic.
