Nozzles and Ports – Gravity Fueling Interface Standards for Civil Aircraft

2012-01-03
CURRENT
AS1852D
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the maximum allowable free opening dimensions for airframe fueling ports on civil aircraft that require the exclusive use of gasoline as an engine fuel, and the minimum free opening dimensions for airframe fueling ports on civil aircraft that operate with turbine fuels as the primary fuel type and with gasoline as the emergency fuel type. This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) also defines the features and dimensions for airframe refueling ports on civil aircraft that require the exclusive use of turbine fuel as an engine fuel. In addition, this document defines the minimum fuel nozzle spout dimensions for turbine fuel ground service equipment, and the maximum fuel nozzle spout diameter for gasoline ground service equipment.

Minimization of Electrostatic Hazards in Aircraft Fuel Systems

1998-09-01
CURRENT
AIR1662A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides background information, technical data and related technical references for minimization of electrostatic hazards in aircraft fuel systems. Techniques used to minimize the electrostatic hazard include: a Reducing fueling rate into tank bays including use of multiple refueling inlet nozzles. b Reducing refuel plumbing flow velocities. c Introducing fuel into the tank at a low velocity near the bottom and directing it to impinge upon a grounded conducting surface. d Avoiding electrically isolated conductors in the fuel tank. e Using conductivity additives in the fuel.

WIP
ARP868D
This document provides recommended methods and describes associated equipment and test setups to assist in understanding and conducting pressure drop tets on fuel system components. Backgroundn information and suggestions are provided as means of improving accuracy and repeatability of test results. Although written specifically for fuel system components, the methods, equipment and suggestions presented herein apply equally to pressure drop tests of other liquid-handling devices.

Fuel Level Control Valves/Systems

1997-12-01
HISTORICAL
AIR1660B
A fuel level control valve/system controls the quantity of fuel in a tank being filled or emptied. This document provides a general familiarization with these mechanisms (e.g. forms they take, functions, system design considerations). This document provides the aircraft fuel system designer with information about these mechanisms/devices, so that he can prescribe the types of level control valves/systems which are best suited for his particular fuel system configuration.

A fuel level control valve/system controls the quantity of fuel in a tank being filled or emptied on the aircraft. This document provides a general familiarization with these mechanisms (e.g., forms they take, functions, system design considerations). This document provides the aircraft fuel system designer with information about these mechanisms/devices, so that he can prescribe the types of level control valves/systems which are best suited for his particular fuel system configuration. The scope has been expanded as different aircraft manufacturers may use different type of fuel system architectures. Their refueling and defueling systems may take different configurations, may require different types of fuel control valves and may require different types of interface with the onboard Fuel Measurement System. They must also limit pressure surges and be compatible with ground refueling equipment which have varying surge potentials and create surges.

Fluid-System-Component Specification Preparation Criteria

2013-10-04
CURRENT
AIR1082C
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.
