Abstract:

The filterability of JP-4 fuel indicates the extent of contamination with solid particulate matter, refinery carry-overs, andor reaction products generated from the mixing of inhibited fuel and water bottoms. This report examines the creation of filter-plugging precipitants via the interaction of a fuel corrosion inhibitor with entrained water. Further work revealed methods to prevent the formation of the reaction product and steps to reclaim such a synthetically created high filtration time JP-4. Author
