Scope


This standard specifies a procedure for rating the tendencies of gas turbine fuels to deposit decomposition products within a fuel system. It is applicable to middle distillate and wide-cut fuels, and is particularly specified for the performance of aviation gas turbine fuels.

The test results are indicative of fuel stability during gas turbine operation and can be used to assess the level of deposits that form when liquid fuel contacts a heated surface at a specified temperature.

WARNING – The use of this standard may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
