Storage Life of JP-6 Grade Jet Fuels 630439

The problem of JP-6 jet fuel deterioration during ambient storage, which gives rise to serious thermal instability, has been studied under Air Force sponsorship. During this study, four of five JP-6 fuels stored 78 weeks at ambient temperature degraded in thermal stability. This paper reports the effects of various additives and gases upon the stability of jet fuel, describes the analytic work, and lists the conclusions reached after numerous tests.
