Jet Fuel/Kerosene

Because most refiners’ process a variety of mixed crude oils they must deal with multiple types of impurities in their treating systems; which necessitates a treating process consisting of several steps to meet acidity, mercaptan, and other specifications required for upgrading naphtha and kerosene fractions to jet fuel products.

Merichem’s unique jet fuel caustic treating system combines several proven FIBER FILM® technologies: our NAPFINING™, or NAPFINING™ HiTAN process for the removal of naphthenic acids; our MERICAT™ II process to catalytically oxidize the mercaptans; and our AQUAFINING™ process to remove the soluble organic and inorganic impurities. In addition to these licensed technologies we provide: salt drying and clay filtering stages to achieve commercial and military jet fuel specifications.
