Prediction of Long-Term Storage Stabilities of Fuels by Thermal Analysis (Pressyre-DSC) 872145

This paper addresses the development of a practical method to predict fuel stability, which is faster and as reliable as existing methods. The new test applies a technique known as Pressure Differential Scanning Calorimetry (Pressure-DSC) and appears advantageous in several respects.
  1. 1.
    It relates reaction enthalpy, in a novel approach, to fuel stability.
  2. 2.
    The test can be completed within 24 hours.
  3. 3.
    Small amounts of fuel suffice for a complete test (≦100 mg).
  4. 4.
    It should be possible to develop a highly automated, micro-processor controlled tester.
