Abstract:

Various samples of Thermally Stable Jet Fuel JPTS produced in accordance with military specification MIL-T-25524, were tested for thermal oxidative stability using the Jet Fuel Thermal Oxidation Tester JFTOT. Two of the fuel samples had marginal thermal stability and provided data needed for the proposed substitution of the JFTOT for the ASTM-CRC Fuel Coker. Over 130 samples of JPTS fuel, submitted for fuel specification compliance test, were tested for thermal oxidative stability using the JFTOT in lieu of the Fuel Coker. The JFTOT, in conjunction with the Alcor Mark 8A Tube Deposit rater, was found to be suitable for the use with JPTS fuels. Author
