Viscosity Method is Listed in More Specifications

May 15 2019 Read 372 Times

PAC is proud to announce that ASTM D7945, the viscosity method used in our Phase Technology jet fuel analyser JFA 70Xi, has recently proven its global acceptance by being included in several specifications.

The most important one is:

  • Def-Stan 91-091 (Issue 10). This Defense Standard specifies the requirements for one grade of kerosene type aviation turbine fuel intended for use in aircraft gas turbine engines.

Also relevant are:

  • CGSB 3.23: The Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) Aviation Turbine Fuel Grades JET A & JET A-1 (ASTM D5972, ASTM D7945)
  • CGSB 3.24: The Canadian General Standards Board (CBSB) Aviation Turbine Fuel Military Grades F-34 & F-44 (ASTM D5972, ASTM D7945)

D7945 has been included in the ASTM jet specification D1655 for almost a year now.

Phase Technology’s JFA-70Xi jet fuel analyser is the world’s first and only instrument that performs three crucial tests in one unit—freeze point, viscosity and density. The JFA-70Xi features a new, side loaded automatic sample injection port. There’s no longer a need to manually pipette since the analyser always draws the precise amount of sample as required by the ASTM method.

JFA 70Xi is available in manual, single shot or with a 48-station autosampler, which allows unattended testing. Users can initiate 1 to 48 runs in a row, then walk away and let the analyser do the rest. The analyser is completely self-cleaning, without the need of solvents.
