This test method covers a laboratory thermal process, using a specified apparatus for measuring the tendencies of aviation turbine fuels to deposit insoluble materials and decomposition products, such as lacquers, within a fuel system. This test method provides a quantitative result for fuel under turbulent flow conditions in 65 or 125 min.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
