PetroValue strives to bring you the best quality of Jet B at affordable prices to support all your cold climate fuel needs.

Jet B is a distillate covering the naphtha and kerosene fractions. It can be used as an alternative to Jet A-1 but because it is more difficult to handle (higher flammability), there is only significant demand in very cold climates where its better cold weather performance is important. In Canada it is supplied against the Canadian Specification CAN/CGSB 3.23

Jet-B is used by Canadian military aircraft, helicopters and by many jet aircraft operating in very cold regions (northern Canada and Alaska, for example).

Jet B-DI
PetroValue also offers Jet B-DI ("DI" stands for de-icing), which is the Jet B with the Anti-icing of the fuel system (also known as "Prist" or "FSII" and sometimes called defroster, but not to be confused with de-icing fluids used to remove ice from aircraft wings!).

The military version of Jet B is called NATO F-40 (or JP-4 in the U.S. Army), and contains the same two additives that NATO F-34: Anti-icing system of fuel and corrosion inhibitor. Jet B, Jet B-DI and F-40 jet with a low flash point (estimated at <-20 ° C), so these fuels must be handled with the same precautions in handling gasoline. Our Jet B Jet B-DI are available throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec now.

Jet A and Jet A-1

Certain aircraft without fuel system heaters require FSII be properly blended into the fuel to prevent free water from freezing in the fuel system, which could cause blockage of filters and fine passges by the formation of ice cystals. Because static electrical charges can build up in fuels moving through fuel systems, particularly through filters, SDA can be added to jet fuels to increase the electrical conductivity of the fuel.
