DEVELOPING AN AUTOMATIC GRADE MONITOR FOR AVIATION FUELS

Shell Research Limited has developed a simple, fail-safe automatic grade monitor device that identifies fuel grade and shuts down the supply system when an unacceptable fuel is detected. The rare occasions where cumulative errors may prove hazardous to aircraft operations can now be further prevented by the availability of the fuel grade monitor. With this device we plan not only to achieve higher standards of contamination control, but also to make a significant contribution to fuel quality assurance and safety in flight. Moreover, the device has the potential for wider use in other applications, notably for the monitoring of fuel supplies to domestic or industrial appliances.
