Beyond Certification:

Jet Fuel Testing Redefined for Safety and Reliability

traditional and alternative jet fuels

As alternative jet fuel blends emerge, our capabilities extend beyond the traditional, offering comprehensive testing services that meet the specific properties and requirements of each fuel. Explore our network of labs and collaborate with us for cutting-edge solutions.

About our jet fuel testing services:

The ASTM specification that covers the minimum property requirements for Jet A and Jet A-1 aviation turbine fuel is ASTM D1655. We are equipped to run all tests related to this specification. Commercial aircraft in the United States use Jet-A as specified by ASTM D1655. The US Military uses several other grades of jet fuel, including JP-4 (older aircraft), JP-5, JP-7 (high-altitude aircraft), and JP-8. We perform jet fuel testing for refineries, pipelines, airports, FBOs, the US military, and individual aircraft owners. We have certified jet fuel for many years and provide quick turnaround times and accurate results. Certifying jet fuel before using it in aircraft is an important to ensure safety and long-term equipment reliability.

Several alternative jet fuel blends are currently under development, with limited commercial market usage. Our laboratory conducts comprehensive testing on both traditional and alternative jet fuels, employing test methods and specifications tailored to the specific properties and requirements of each fuel.

Below is a list of the standard jet fuel tests we routinely perform. If you have specific testing requirements not listed, please feel free to reach out to us. We continuously enhance our capabilities, are open to establishing new testing methods, and maintain a vast network of collaborative laboratories.
