Aviation Fuels

Manufacturing specifications for aviation fuels are very stringent. When necessary, at every stage between refinery and aircraft tank, fuel quality is checked by sampling and laboratory analysis to ensure that the fuel conforms to the specification when it is delivered to the aircraft.

Jet A-1

Aviation turbine fuels are used for powering jet engines, turbo-prop engines and more recently diesel piston engines in aircraft.

Jet A-1 is a kerosene grade of fuel suitable for most turbine engine aircraft. It is produced according to a stringent internationally agreed standard, has a flash point above 38ºC (100ºF) and a freeze point maximum of -47ºC. Jet A-1 is the usual fuel for turbines in the world. Jet A-1 meets the latest version of requirements of British specification DEF STAN 91-91, ASTM specification D1655 and NATO Code F-35.

In specifying requirements for jet fuels, the main objective is to ensure that fuel systems will function satisfactorily over a wide range of temperatures and pressures.

These environmental factors can be very severe knowing the conditions under which modern jet aircraft operate. In addition to these requirements, engine developments and the continual effort to lengthen the period between engine overhauls have led to the introduction of a number of new sophisticated specification requirements, different than those for aviation gasoline. Among these are the need for high thermal stability, low luminosity and compatibility with certain fuel system materials.

Aviation kerosene is the most common fuel in commercial use. The standard civil grade of aviation turbine fuel, Jet A-1, is manufactured to meet the requirements of the latest version of the Aviation Fuel Quality Requirements for Jointly Operated Systems (AFQRJOS) "Check List".

The Check List was drawn up by the major international oil supply companies to ensure uniform quality standards for civil jet fuels world-wide (excluding USA) and comprises the most restrictive requirements of the major fuel specifications. Compliance with Check List requirements thus guarantees meeting the requirements of the individual specifications.

 

Lubricants for airplanes

 

Major partner for engine oil of piston motor and aeroturbines, the group Total is also the main distributor of ROYCO products (oil for hydraulic systems or turbomachines, greases).Our Aviation lubricants are approved by MIL, DEF-STAN, OTAN, AIR, and by major aircraft manufacturers.

Range of lubricants

TOTAL Lubricants can now offer a full range of lubricants aimed both at serving piston motors and turbines engines. With AERO DM, the AERO range, well known by pilots, now including ROYCO products from ROYAL LUBRICANTS, Total has become their unique distributor in Europe.
All these lubricants have been approved and certified as of high quality, by all aircraft manufacturers, as well as by parts manufacturers. Well-known partners in aviation, Total also performs the follow-up of oils in service and is the exclusive provision in order to offer high-quality services to customers.
