Abstract : The May spinning top aerosol generator was used to generate aerosols from neat Navy jet fuel and selected dispersions of three types of polymer additives in the jet fuel. The additives selected were Oppanol B-200, a Vistanex Series, and a proprietary antimisting additive designated as FM-9. The mass median diameter (MMD) of the droplets produced was studied as a function of additive concentration and spinning top velocity for each additive. In the case of each additive the MMD significantly increased with concentration at constant RPS. The effect of the Oppanol B-200 was comparable to that of FM-9 with respect to its influence on the MMD.
