IP 274 - Electrical Conductivity of Aviation and Distillate Fuels

We perform jet fuel testing by IP 274 to measure the electrical conductivity or ability of jet fuel and distillate fuels to dissipate electrical charges. The ability of a fuel to dissipate charge that has been generated during pumping and filtering operations is controlled by its electrical conductivity, which depends upon the ion species content. If the fuel's electrical conductivity is sufficiently high, electrical charges dissipate fast enough to prevent their accumulation. This can also prevent dangerously high electrical charges in a receiving tank.

IP 274 corresponds to ASTM D2624.
