What is Jet A1 Fuel?
Jet A-1 is a kerosene-based fuel that is used in most jet engines. It is a highly refined fuel that is designed to meet the specific needs of jet engines, including high flame temperature, low volatility, and low freezing point, making it the most widely used aviation fuel.
JET A-1 is compatible with most jet aircraft, both civil and military, helicopter turbine engines, turboprops and compression-ignition piston engines. It has a high energy density, which means that it can provide a lot of power for a given amount of fuel and is also a stable fuel that can be stored for long periods of time without degrading.
Jet A-1 is produced from crude oil through a complex refining process that involves distillation, cracking, and hydrotreating. The resulting fuel is then blended to meet the specific requirements of jet engines.
Safety of Jet A-1
Jet A-1 is a relatively safe fuel, but it is important to handle it with care. Spills of Jet A-1 can be easily ignited, and it can be harmful if ingested. It is also important to store Jet A-1 in properly ventilated tanks to prevent the buildup of flammable vapours.
Jet A-1 Fuel is fully traceable from the refinery to the aircraft to guarantee product quality throughout the logistics chain.
