ARP594D - Fuel Pump Thermal Safety Design

Details
Document Number: ARP594D
Revision Number: D
Title
Fuel Pump Thermal Safety Design
Scope
These recommendations cover only those design factors which might cause the pump motor or pump housing to act as an autogenous or spark-ignition source for explosive fuel vapors within the airplane tank. This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) recommends fuel booster pump design requirements commensurate with the presently known state-of-the-art, relating to the prevention of autogenous ignition of explosive fuel vapors and the confinement of autogenous or spark-initiated flames by means of flame-suppressing devices.
