Thermal Oxidation Stability of Aviation Turbine Fuels
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3241; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.
1.1 This test method covers the procedure for rating the
tendencies of gas turbine fuels to deposit decomposition
products within the fuel system.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The inch-pound values given in parentheses are for
information only. The differential pressure values in mm Hg
are defined only in terms of this test method.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard
