inhibitor for jet fuel

inhibitor for jet fuel

Hello everybody. Does anyone knows of a fuel inhibitor? (a chemical to add to the jet fuel in order to impair itLs use in airplanes) The jet fuel will be use in an industrial process as insecticide vehicle.
a buddy of mine recommended carbon tetrachloride, but
the price is too high. What could i use instead for big

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

RE: inhibitor for jet fuel

What is the connection with aircraft jet fuel ? Inhibiting what: corrosion, static electricity buildup, oxidation, thermal instability, water retention, icing, against microbiological growth, antimisting ? Can you be more explicit ?

RE: inhibitor for jet fuel

Thank you for your reply!

Sorry, maybe the right word is not inhibit, but denaturalize.
I mean a product that when added (in small quantities,
because this is a proyect to treat dozens of tons) it will
render the jet fuel unusable for use in aircraft, but still
will burn in an industrial oven. i know that the products
that contain chlorum will break apart the engine if attemped
to use. The govt wont let you sell it as a oven fuel
if it can still be used in airplanes, thatLs why i need
such product. there are lots of products i can use, but
due to the big quantities involved, i need a cheap choice.

Thanks again!

RE: inhibitor for jet fuel

Jet fuels are traditionally manufactured from straight-run kerosines of some sweet crudes plus high-quality hydrotreated or chemically sweetened fractions. Thermally or catalytically cracked stocks would invariably produce an off-spec fuel. Their price should be lower than that of quality material.
If still environmentally compatible, why not investigate their possible use as insecticide carriers ?
