Jet Fuel and Aviation Gasoline Test List

IPL provides IANZ accredited analysis for Jet Fuel and Aviation Gasoline. These products are made from the lighter middle distillate fuel streams in the refinery. They are mixtures of the straight-run (non-cracked), hydrotreated and hydrocracked kerosenes. Excessive use of hydrocracked components has led to lubricity problems. Jet Fuel specifications include not just tests and limits but also other items relating to manufacturing, traceability, additives and contamination.

Below is a summarised list of the tests IPL performs for Jet A1, Bio-Jet and Aviation Gasoline:
