    Revision of D1655 - 12a Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuels

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1655 - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.J0.01 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK42135

    1. Rationale

    At the meeting of SC J December 2012 in Norfolk Virginia, it was recommended that an alternate distillation test method be allowed for use in the aviation fuel specification. This alternate method D7345 Test Method for Distillation of Petroleum Products at Atmospheric Pressure (Micro Distillation Method) was published in 2007 and has been in use and the results reported in the ASTM Aviation Turbine (Jet A) Fuel interlaboratory crosscheck program since the end of 2009, which now encompasses ten series of the program. The results received from this alternate distillation method were reviewed in regards to comparison to results achieved by the D86 referee method during the same ten series of the ILCP. Those comparisons are summarized in the supporting information for this ballot and indicate that the performance of D7345 provides for a suitable alternate test method for the distillation of aviation fuel and provides a comparable result which is useable for the determination of the specification temperatures in D1655. Test Method D86 remains the referee method. This ballot was authorized at the SC J meeting December 2012.
