Jet Fuel, or Turbine Fuel, accounts for about 10% of all petroleum distillates derived from crude. It is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines. The majority of the aircraft fuel is Kerosene-type jet fuel (including Jet A and Jet A-1, JP-5, and JP-8). The demand for Jet Fuel has increased steadily over the past 20 years with some of the larger airports using upwards of 1.5 million gallons per day. Chem-Bac Laboratories understands the importance of airports and terminals receiving results in a timely manner. With a staff that is always on-call and the ability to turn results as quickly as needed, our laboratory has set the standard in a fast paced and high demand industry. Our laboratory is prepared with duplication of all testing equipment. If a piece of equipment needs repair, it will not affect the ability of Chem-Bac to deliver results
Chem-Bac Laboratories can provide a full range of specification testing on Jet A, Jet A-1, JP-5, and JP-8 blends.
