Considerations on Ice Formation in Aircraft Fuel Systems

1964-04-20
HISTORICAL
AIR790
In the past, incidents and accidents occurred in the operation of military and civil aircraft which were attributed to the formation of ice in the engine fuel supply system resulting in intermittent or complete starvation of fuel flow. Considerable effort was devoted by many airframe companies, engine and accessory manufacturers and government agencies to study the problem of ice formation and to evolve corrective measures. By its very nature, the problem of ice formation was difficult to identify and analyze. However, corrective measures were developed which virtually eliminated serious icing problems in aircraft fuel systems. For many years incidents and accidents have not occurred on aircraft equipped with fuel heaters and/or operated with fuel containing anti-icing additive.

Considerations on Ice Formation in Aircraft Fuel Systems

2006-08-24
CURRENT
AIR790C
Ice formation in aircraft fuel systems results from the presence of dissolved and undissolved water in the fuel. Dissolved water or water in solution with hydrocarbon fuels constitutes a relatively small part of the total water potential in a particular system with the quantity dissolved being primarily dependent on the fuel temperature and the water solubility characteristics of the fuel. One condition of undissolved water is entrained water such as water particles suspended in the fuel as a result of mechanical agitation of free water or conversion of dissolved water through temperature reduction. Another condition of undissolved water is free water which may be introduced as a result of refueling or the settling of entrained water which collects at the bottom of a fuel tank in easily detectable quantities separated by a continuous interface from the fuel above. Water may also be introduced as a result of condensation from air entering a fuel tank through the vent system.

FLUID-SYSTEM-COMPONENT SPECIFICATION PREPARATION CRITERIA

1992-02-01
HISTORICAL
AIR1082B
The importance of adequate component procurement specifications to the success of a hardware development program cannot be overemphasized. Specifications which are too stringent can be as detrimental as specifications which are too lax. Performance specifications must not only identify all of the component requirements, but they must also include sufficient quality assurance provisions so that compliance can be verified. It should be understood that in almost every case specifications for components will ultimately become part of a BINDING, WRITTEN CONTRACT (PO). The purpose of this document is to describe types of specifications, provide guidance for the preparation of fluid component specifications, and identify documents commonly referenced in fluid component specifications.
