GAS TURBINE AND JET ENGINE FUELS
PHILLIPS PETROLEUM CO BARTLESVILLE OK
The effects sulfur in jet fuels and ingested sea water on the durability of jet engine hot section components were studied. Attempts were made to determine the reason for higher flame tube corrosion rates observed during operation with ingested natural Gulf sea water as compared to synthetic sea water. Efforts were also initiated toward the development of a suitable test method for the evaluation of the effect of fuel S and sea water on simulated turbine inlet guide vane durability. Preliminary experiments were made with cart-wheel shaped simulated guide vanes during operation with a nearly S-free fuel and with this same fuel contaminated with 1 sulfur.
