4 Claims, No Drawings REDUCING DEPOSITS AND SMOKE FROM JET FUELS BACKGROUND Jet engines for aircraft and for peak power electric plants frequently have black smoke in their exhaust gases. For commercial aircraft the smoke is a serious air pollutant as well as a cause of visibility resistrictions over large airports at times when the wind velocity is low. For military aircraft the smoke trail presents a combat disadvantage in that planes are visible to antiaircraft weaponry at much greater distances than otherwise. For peak power electric plants, usually located in heavily populated areas, the smoke presents a serious pollution problem.

It is well known that certain transition metal compounds, when added to the jet fuel, inhibit or materially reduce smoke formation. Such compounds must be soluble in the jet fuel. One particularly effective oilsoluble transition metal compound is methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl, available from the Ethyl Corporation under the designation Cl-2. Another similarly effective additive is tertiary amyl ferrocene, available from the Arapahoe Chemical Company. Use of such metallic additives has been limited, especially in aircraft engines, because of ash deposits which adhere to engine surfaces. Engine distress due to the metallic ash deposits severly limits engine life and makes frequent overhaul necessary.

The smoke problem may also be overcome by installation of specially designed combustors within the jet engine assembly. Aside from their expense, these combustors are effective only for certain flow configurations which are difficult to maintain. A further disadvantage is a significant loss of maximum power when the combustors are operating, amounting to as much as l5 percent of the horsepower otherwise available.

Accordingly, there exists a need for an improved additive, for inclusion in the jet fuel, capable of minimizing the existing smoke emission problem found with all jet engine power plants while also minimizing the problem of ash deposits within the engine system.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION One object of our invention is to provide an improved additive for fuels employed in jet engine power plants, capable of inhibiting the formation of visible smoke and minimizing the deposition of ash on engine parts.

A further object of our invention is to provide a jet fuel composition having improved combustion properties and a lesser tendency to deposit inorganic residues on metallic engine surfaces.

Another object of this invention is to increase the useful life of jet engines and to increase the time span between required engine overhauls.

Another object of this invention is to enhance the utility of metallic additives, capable of eliminating or reducing the visible smoke content of jet engine exhaust gases, by modifying these additives to minimize their tendency to cause excessive ash deposits to form on metallic engine surfaces and thereby drastically shorten engine life.

These objects are accomplished in our invention by providing an additive package, suitable for inclusion in jet fuels, and jet fuels containing such an additive package, whereby the smoking tendency of jet fuels is substantially reduced or eliminated while also minimizing the harmful side-effects of ash deposition on metal surfaces, usually associated with smoke inhibitors.

An oil-soluble transition metal compound, effective as a smoke-inhibiting additive, is modified and improved by inclusion of an oil-soluble compound of a secondary metal selected from among the alkaline earths. The secondary metal compound may also be in a basic or alkaline, form. The additive components should be present in amounts sufficient to provide a weight ratio of transition metal to alkaline earth metal within the range from 67/33 to /5. The dosage of the jet fuel with the additive package should provide a total metals content within the range from 10 to 600 ppm.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to jet fuel additives and to jet fuels containing these additives.

The additives of this invention comprise two oilsoluble metal compounds, the first being derived from a transition metal suitable for reducing the smoking tendency ofjet fuels during combustion in a jet engine, leading to visible smoke trails from jet aircraft. The second metal compound, derived from an alkaline earth metal, has been surprisingly discovered to impart additional smoke inhibition power to the transition metal compound and additionally to greatly reduce the formation of ash deposits on the metallic surfaces within the jet engine assembly. The presence of the second metallic compound of this invention has also surprisingly contributed to enhanced fuel stability at operating engine temperature and to fuel storage stability at near ambient temperatures in either the presence or absence of light.

Suitable transition metal compounds for use in the additives of this invention include any oil-soluble compounds of vanadium, chromium, copper, cobalt, manganese, iron and nickel. Preferred transition metals are manganese and iron. Among the suitable oil-soluble compounds of these metals are the coordination compounds such as, for example, methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (sold by Ethyl Corp. as Cl-2) and tertiary amyl ferrocene (available from Arapahoe Chemical Co.). Such compounds may be employed in jet fuels in amounts sufficient to provide a transition metal content within the range from about 10 to about 600 ppm. When this is done the combustion of the jet fuel is improved so that visible smoke in the exhaust gas is greatly reduced or nearly eliminated. However, such transition metal additives have been limited in their use because of engine distress caused by the deposition of an inorganic ash, comprising metal oxides, on the surface of the engine internals.

Suitable alkaline earth metal compounds, for minimizing the ash deposition problem and surprisingly f urther improving smoke inhibition, include any oilsoluble compounds of the alkaline earth metals, especially those of magnesium, calcium and barium. These compounds include carboxylates, petroleum sulfonates, alkyl aryl sulfonates, alkyl phenates or other compounds compatible with the other components of the fuel. A preferred alkaline earth metal is calcium. Especially preferred alkaline earth compounds include magnesium sulfonates prepared with alkyl (C polypropylene) benezene sulfonic acid, barium nonyl phenol sulfide and calcium monyl phenol sulfide. The alkaline earth compounds may be either neutral or basic,

the alkaline form being prepared by over-basing with the corresponding metal oxide in the presence of carbon dioxide and an amine, such as ethylene diamine, or ammonia, as described in US. Pat. Nos. 3,492,230 and 3,524,8l4. The alkaline earth metal compound is employed in an amount selected to provide a quantity of secondary metal ranging from about i to about 35 wt. percent of the transition metal contained in the additive. Preferably the secondary, or alkaline earth, metal is present in the amount of 5 to 30 wt. percent of the transition metal.

When desired, more than one transition metal compound may be employed together with any desired mixture of alkaline earth metals, limited only by compatibility in the selected jet fuel. Whenever such mixtures are used the weight ratio of transition metal to alkaline earth metal and the additive dosage concentration should conform to the ranges described above for simple combinations.

Any conventional commercial or military jet fuel may be improved by inclusion of the additive package of this invention. Such fuels include kerosene, .IP-4, JP-S, and the like. These fuels may generally be described as boiling in the range from ambient temperature to 550F., having an API gravity within the range from 40 to S5, and an aromatics content below about 20 percent. A more complete description of suitable jet fuels may be found in Bureau of Mines, Mineral industry Survey, 1969.

The metal-containing additive components are suitably provided as a concentrate having a total metals content within the range from to 25 wt. percent. The components may be dissolved in any suitable petroleum base stock as a carrier for the concentrate. Such stocks include kerosene, JP-4 or JP-5 jet fuels, heater oil, furnace oil, and light lubricating oil stocks such as 5W grade oil.

The additive concentrate may then be added to a conventional commercial or military jet fuel in sufficient amount to provide a total metals content within the range from about ID to about 600 p.p.m., preferably 200 to 500 ppm, and most desirably about 400 ppm. While the weight ratio of transition metal to alkaline earth metal may vary from 67/33 to 95/5, it is preferred that the ratio be between 75/25 and 90/10. More preferably, the transition metal should be manganese and the alkaline earth metal should be calcium, with the respective metals being present in a weight ratio between 80/20 and 90/10. A particularly preferred additive combination comprises 83 weight parts manganese and 17 weight parts calcium (Mn/Ca 5/1).

The additive compositions and jet fuels containing them, which comprise the substance of our invention, possess both operational and significant economic value. Smoke is undesirable from both ecological and military viewpoints. Additives heretofore known to reduce smoking problems with jet fuels have in turn created serious economic problems by decreasing the life of the expensive jet engine power plants. The compositions of our invention not only reduce the engine-life problem, by reducing ash deposits, but surprisingly permit substitution of a relatively cheap alkaline earth metal compound for a portion of the required transition metal compound in effecting smoke reduction. Accordingly, the additive compositions and fuels of our invention provide a timely solution to a vexing problem and do so at an economic advantage.

SPECIFIC EMBODIMENTS OF THE INVENTION The following examples illustrate, without limitation, the scope of our invention.

EXAMPLE I Jet fuel compositions were evaluated for combustion properties (soot and ash deposits) in a laboratory burner apparatus. In this evaluation procedure a selected fuel is metered into a verticallydisposed burner fitted with means for controlling air pressure. Centrally above the burner is placed a weighed glass cone, having a truncated base aligned horizontally with the burner tip. A second weighed, truncated glass cone, having a greater maximum circumference than the first cone, is inverted above the first cone. in operation a selected fuel feed rate is set and the air pressure is adjusted so that there is no leakage of fuel at the burner or down the wall of the first cone. This air pressure adjustment is then maintained throughout a series of tests. In operation, deposits collect on the walls of both cones positioned above the burner. After cooling, the cones are weighed to determine the total deposits (soot and ash). The deposits are then collected and burned to determine the residual, or ash, content.

The fuel employed in the following tests was a kerosene boiling within the range from 350 to 550F. When an oil-soluble manganese compound was present as an additive, Ethyl Cl-2 was employed in sufficient amount to provide 200 ppm. metal. When a secondary metal was similarly present, its selected oil-soluble compound was employed in sufficient amount to provide 10 ppm. metal. Total deposits on the lower cone were measured, as set forth in Table I, after burning 50 ml. fuel. Results of two separate series of runs show generally good agreement as to the ability of various metal combinations to reduce deposit formation. Where a secondary metal was employed, the sulfonate salts were C alkyl benzene sulfonates, overbased with excess metal oxide in the presence of carbon dioxide and either ammonia or ethylene diamine. The phenate salts were either alkaline (calcium) or neutral (barium) C phenolsulfides. The succinate salt was an overbased (or alkaline) C alkanyl succinate. While all of the additives were effective in reducing deposits, the addition of either 5 percent calcium or 5 percent barium to manganese produced a significantly greater reduction in deposits than was realized with manganese alone.

The procedure of Example I was repeated employing the kerosene fuel with manganese present as Ethyl Cl-2 and calcium present as the alkaline C alkyl phenol sulfide. Both ash and soot in the total deposit were determined. Results presented in Table II show a distinct improvement in both ash reduction and soot (or smoke) reduction as the amount of calcium relative to manganese is increased up to 20 percent by weight. Above this optimum level, the effectiveness of calcium diminishes so that little advantage remains at concentrations above 25 percent.

Results presented in Table III show that use of about 5-10 percent magnesium with manganese provides good reduction in both ash and soot but further increase in the magnesium content provides control of ash deposit but is ineffective in controlling soot formation.

The test procedure of the preceding Examples was repeated employing barium as the secondary metal, present as a neutral C alkyl phenol sulfide. The results presented in Table IV show the effectiveness of barium in reducing both ash and soot at the 5 wt. percent level, based on manganese. Above that concentration a lesser effectiveness is indicated, particularly as regards reduction in soot formation.

At a fixed fuel flow rate steady burner conditions were achieved and the exhaust gas was then sampled by tapping the exhaust and passing it through a filter paper until a fixed volume of gas had been filtered. The optical density of the resulting sample spot on the filter paper was then measured and the smoke number calculated. The value reported as the smoke number (S,,) is given by the equation:

where OD, =optical density of clean Whatman filter paper, and

OD, optical density of sample spot after exhaust sample has passed through.

Because the value of S,, is dependent upon the amount of exhaust gas sampled, the Society of Automative Engineers procedure ARP 1179, for aircraft gas turbine engines, provides for a series of measurements fitted to a straight line plotting 8,, vs. log W/A, where W/A is the weight of fuel per unit area of the sample spot. Finally, the value of S, is empirically selected as the value read from the chart at the point where W/A is 0.023 lbs./in This procedure is repeated at each power (fuel rate) setting. On this basis an 8,, value of 25 i 3 represents threshold visibility. An untreated fuel will have an 8,, of -70 at low fuel flow rates and a value of 50-50 at high fuel flow rates.

Employing a JP-4 jet fuel, boiling in the range from room temperature to 550F., smoke numbers were measured on fuels containing an oil-soluble compound of either manganese or iron together with an oil-soluble magnesium, calcium or barium compound to provide a secondary metal additive. The manganese additive was Ethyl CI-2 while the iron additive was Arapahoe tertiary amyl ferrocene. The secondary metal compounds were the same as used previously in Examples II, III and IV. Fuel rates selected were 35 gal. per hour, typical of high-smoke operation and 43 gal. per hour, typical of low-smoke operation. Where a secondary metal was present, the amount was always 5 wt. percent of the primary metal employed. Data presented in Table V indicate the effectiveness of the secondary metals, especially calcium, in lowering the smoke number below the values achieved when using the primary metal alone. Of the two primary metals employed in this series iron generally performed better than manganese, whether alone or in combination with a secondary metal.

Data presented in Table VI show that the Mn/Ca mixture is as effective as Mn on a total metals basis and that each additive combination provides a minimum smoke number at a concentration of about 400 p.p.m.

After 6 months storage at ll0F. none of the solutions exhibited any marked color change or precipitation.

At room temperature Ethyl Cl-Z gave a brown precipitate upon exposure to light for prolonged periods. The presence of a secondary metal greatly reduced the rate of precipitation.

EXAMPLE Vlll Thermal stability of fuels consisting of JP-4 jet fuel together with either the Mn or Mn/Ca additive of Example VI was determined by a coker test (modified ASTM D- l 660). The results showed greater fuel stability over a broad additive concentration range for the Mn/Ca system. With Mn alone stability continually decreased with increasing additive concentration.

We claim:
