Abstract : Texaco Research Coker was modified to a more dynamic system, to both approach the test conditions used in various fuel test rigs, such as the CRC rig, and to simulate actual mission profiles for different supersonic aircraft. The modifications included vacuum system for the fuel reservoir, cold finger device and sampling port for fuel sampling. A series of shakedown runs have been completed using the modified test aggregate. Analytical phase of the program entailed development of sampling method and determination of dissolved oxygen and nitrogen gases in fuel at the ppm range. (Author)
