Fuel Related Problems in Engine Fuel Systems 660714
This is a summary of fuel related problems encountered with fuel systems particularly during the past 5 years. The combined efforts of systems engineers and fuel technologists to overcome them are stressed. Problems associated with chemical impurities such as sulfur and chlorine compounds are discussed and comments made upon the effects of particulate matter and free water. Further problems associated with lubricity of fuels are included and some reference to fuel additives. The effects of some hydrogen treated fuels on synthetic rubber is outlined, also the development of equipment to operate at high fuel temperatures and on a wide range of petroleum distillates.
