Abstract:

Syncrudes derived from Utah and Western Kentucky coals by the COED process were refined into 10 gallon quantities of a JP-5 type aviation fuel. The kerosene cuts from the two syncrudes were hydrotreated in two stages. A single stage treatment provided a high aromatic 20-25 percent volume fuel and the two stages a low aromatic 0-5 percent fuel. The properties of the four synfuels were evaluated for their conformance to the MIL-T-5624K specification requirements for grade JP-5. Material compatibility and storagethermal oxidation stability studies were also conducted. Approximately 250 gallons of a high aromatic fuel were also refined from a Western Kentucky coal syncrude. Performance and exhaust emission tests were performed on a T63 engine using this fuel. The compatibility of the fuel with filtration equipment coalescers was also studied. Author
