Abstract:

Conductivity additives ASA-3 and Stadis 450 have been found to significantly reduce static electricity in JP-4 containing approved additives when fuel conductivity is at least 100 CU at use temperatures. In the absence of conductivity additives, some additives caused increased charge accumulation which may have contributed to previous static ignited aircraft fires. Tests were performed in a Mobil Research small-scale electrification unit modified to simulate USAF fueling velocities and aircraft fuel tank configurations. Author
