The thermal stability characteristics of two liquid hydrocarbon fuels are examined using a single-pass system whereby the fuel under test flows only once through a heated tube which is maintained at constant temperature throughout a test duration of six hours. Deposition rates on the tube walls are measured by weighing the tube before and after each test.

The experimental data are used to derive empirical equations for predicting the effects on deposition rates of variation in fuel temperature, wall temperature, and Reynolds number. It is found that deposition rates are enhanced by increases in fuel temperature, wall temperature and flow velocity, and by reductions in tube diameter. Pressure has no effect on deposition rates provided it is high enough to prevent fuel boiling.
