Abstract : A selection of commercial aircraft airframe fuel systems has been studied to determine areas where incompatibility with antimisting kerosene fuel (AMK) may exist. Incompatibility can be due to reduced fuel system component performance with AMK or shear degradation of the AMK by the fuel system components. Survey results, to date, indicate that potential component performance problems with AMK are more significant than loss of AMK flammability protection due to shear degradation. Components of interest include ejector pumps, fuel filters, and auxiliary power units. (Author)
