The primary objective of this program was to identify potential future problem areas that could arise from changes in the composition, properties and potential availability of JP-5 produced in the near future. The study employed a systems type approach, looking at the various processing trains used to make JP-5 in the U.S. and abroad, the types of crudes used with the different processing trains and the crude-processing interactions that might impact on the quality and potential availability of JP-5 produced in the near future. Analyses were made separately for the two major geographical regions PADs currently producing JP-5 for the U.S. Navy. Potential fuel problems concerning thermal stability, lubricity, low temperature flow, combustion, and the effect of the use of specific additives on fuel properties and performance were identified and discussed.
