Aviation Turbine Fuel Testing

Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) is a specialized type of petroleum-based fuel used to power aircraft. It is generally of a higher quality than fuels used in less critical applications, such as heating or road transport. ATF contains additives to enhance or maintain properties important to fuel performance or handling. Other Significant performance properties of the product are stability, Lubricity, Fluidity, Volatility and cleanliness beside providing a source of energy, fuel is also used as hydraulic fluid in engine control system and as a coolant for certain fuel system components.

There are two types of aviation fuel in use today:

  • Conventional Hydrocarbon Aviation turbine fuel (Avtur, Jet A, Jet A-1, JP8) refined direct from crude oil, also called Jet fuel
  • Newer innovative fuels such as the SASOL semi and fully synthetic fuels now included in Defstan 91-91 and AFQRJOS specifications. These will soon be joined by a plethora of fuels based on innovative source materials such as gas to liquid fuels, Coal to liquid fuels, biomass to liquid fuels and even fuels from algal growth.

We offer fuel quality analysis services in accordance to ASTM, IP, MIL, DEFSTAN other jet aviation industry standards
