ASTM D971 ring method.
Lowest cost per sample analysis.
The patented* SWIFTKit is the first practical device to determine
the Interfacial Tension (IFT) of aviation jet fuel in the field.
The IFT value is a general indication of the surfactant (surface
active agent) level in fuel; higher IFT values indicate lower
surfactant levels. Surfactants can disarm coalescer elements,
which could allow excess water downstream and into the aircraft.
The SWIFTKit can be used for general quality checks onfuel
during transfer and transportation, and particularly for receipts
into airport storage. The SWIFTKit is especially useful to
determine the condition of clay treatment cartridges by comparing
the upstream and downstream IFT values. An increase in IFT
value shows that the clay is still effectively doing its job
of removing surfactants.
