Fuel Conductivity

Fuel Conductivity

The velocity of Aviation Turbine and Low Sulphur Diesel fuels through a pipeline will impart an electrical charge, dependent on the conductivity of the fuel and the flow of velocity. The potential for fuel to accumulate a high static electrical charge which can lead to spark discharge and ignition of the explosive vapours means that great attention is given to testing the electrical conductivity of these fuels.

To help ensure safe fuel storage and distribution, airlines and regulatory bodies established ASTM D2624 for Electrical Conductivity of Aviation and Distillate Fuels.

The In-line and Handheld fuel conductivity measurement fully complies with ASTM D2624 and is mandated in the following specifications:

  • ASTM D1655 Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuels
  • DEFSTAN 91-91 Defence Standard Turbine Fuel, Aviation Kerosene Jet A-1; NATO F-35
  • ASTM D975 Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils
  • IP 274 Determination of Electrical Conductivity of Aviation and Distillate Fuels
