    Abstract

    Aviation turbine fuel is a mixture of various hydrocarbons and additives. Some fuel-soluble chemicals are added in small amounts to enhance or to maintain the properties related to fuel performance. In the present study, the influence of microbes on corrosion in aviation turbine fuel transporting pipeline is reported. Chemical and biological analyses of the corrosion product collected from aviation turbine fuel pipeline were carried out. While examining the topography of the pipeline, the possibilities of some water stagnant points were noticed. The reason for the corrosion in the aviation turbine fuel transporting pipeline is investigated and discussed.
