Abstract : After 1 year of storage at ambient temperatures, only one JP-6 fuel out of ten gave any indication of a loss in thermal stability during storage. The helium-drive modified standard coker was used for evaluating the 1-year storage behavior. Various chemical tests, which were performed on the test fuels both before and after storage, gave no indications of gross contamination. In the absence of contamination and if a reliable test is used to evaluate thermal stability, no serious problem exists regarding the storage of high quality JP-6 type jet fuels. (Author)
