CENTRALIZED AIRCRAFT REFUELING SYSTEM IS A TIME OPTIMIZATION FOR AIRCRAFT REFUELING

In recent years, the civil aeronautics have widely used the pressure refueling systems, in which the fuel is fed from the feed-tanks by pumps through pipelines directly to the aircraft tanks.

  • Practically unlimited performance and reduced aircraft fueling time;
  • Reducing labor intensity of the production process of intra-aerodrome fuel pumping and reducing maintenance personnel;
  • Average 4 times decrease in the cost of fuel delivery from the fuel depot to the aircraft tanks;
  • Prevention of fuel contamination by mechanical impurities and water contamination during transportation from tanks to aircraft owing to tightness;
  • Increase of fire safety during refueling due to the lack of tanks with fuel in close vicinity to the aircraft.
  • Expenses for the capital construction of the CAFS systems are relatively small and fast-payback due to reducing operating costs.

Airports use three types of CAFS systems, differing in equipment capability and quantity of fuel pumped:

  • Dismountable simplified systems in airports are of the IV and V classes;
  • Average performance systems in airports are of the II and III classes;
  • High-performance automated systems in airports are of the I class.
  • An aircraft is installed on an apron or a parking area in accordance with the currently available striping and fixed from moving by the stop blocks after the engine has been stopped;
  • Sediment is discharged from the aircraft tanks and sampling for presence of mechanical impurities and water is carried out according to the current regulations;
  • A mobile refueling unit is put on the handbrake in a space designated to it, next to a hydrant (connecting column), and fixed from moving by the stop blocks;
  • Inlet hose of the mobile refueling unit is grounded and connected to the hydrant; discharge hoses are unfolded and connected to the aircraft; fueling nozzles are opened and at the same time electrical connection (metallization) of the refueling unit with the aircraft is provided using a cable;
  • A required flow and pressure refueling mode as well as a dose of an additive deicing fluid are set on the refueling unit;
  • Fuel sediment from filters and refueling nozzles (valve) is discharged and checked.
