Jet fuel maintains a static electric charge due to its low conductivity (≤ 10-12 mhos/m). The de Gaston Decharger is an invention which uses ionizing radiation to increase fuel conductivity (> 10-9 mhos/m) temporarily. The Decharger is able to reduce charge density below any arbitrary level for any flow rates and charge densities by suitable design. The basic theory of the Decharger is discussed. Its design and the summarized test data are given. The data indicate that the fuel conductivity is increased to 7.6 × 10-9 mhos/m. The average energy per effective ion produced is ≤ 147 eV.
