Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuels
|Publication Date:||1 December 2014|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This specification covers the use of purchasing agencies in formulating specifications for purchases of aviation turbine fuel under contract.
This specification defines specific types of aviation turbine fuel for civil use in the operation and certification of aircraft and describes fuels found satisfactory for the operation of aircraft and engines. The specification can be used as a standard in describing the quality of aviation turbine fuels from the refinery to the aircraft.
This specification does not define the quality assurance testing and procedures necessary to ensure that fuel in the distribution system continues to comply with this specification after batch certification. Such procedures are defined elsewhere, for example in ICAO 9977, EI/JIG Standard 1530, JIG 1, JIG 2, API 1543, API 1595, and ATA-103.
This specification does not include all fuels satisfactory for aviation turbine engines. Certain equipment or conditions of use may permit a wider, or require a narrower, range of characteristics than is shown by this specification.
Aviation turbine fuels defined by this specification may be used in other than turbine engines that are specifically designed and certified for this fuel.
This specification no longer includes wide-cut aviation turbine fuel (Jet B). FAA has issued a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin which now approves the use of Specification D6615 to replace Specification D1655 as the specification for Jet B and refers users to this standard for reference.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
