Continuous quality control
Quality control is exercised at all stages of the jet fuel supply process – by visual inspection, instrumental verification, and via laboratory testing. The latter aims to establish whether there have been any significant changes in the quality of aviation fuels between the above stages, and whether the fuels are suitable for use in an aircraft. Quality assessment is conducted using representative samples from:
- transportation means (pipelines, railway tanks, oil carriers);
- tanks and other fuel storage containers;
- refuelling, filtration, and water trapping equipment.
