Abstract : The report is the result of study to determine the most effective, practical, and economical system for onshore fueling of Navy aircraft, including fighters, patrol, helicopters, and transport aircraft. The Recommended Service Station Fueling System is a pressure system automatically controlled by fuel demand, utilizing groups of pumps, filter-separators, and a pipeline distribution system arranged for extreme flexibility and simplicity in operation. A minimum of hydraulic and electric controls are used, and no radio or telephone is required for coordination of fueling. The Recommended Service Station Fueling System consists of fueling spots to which aircraft come for fueling. Each fueling spot consists of a meter, a primary and secondary pressure control valve, a filter-separator, and a loading hose or arm to transfer fuel from a pipeline to the aircraft. (Author)
