Abstract:

To insure the continuing capability of the Marine Corps Amphibious Assault Fuel System AFFS and Tactical Airfield Fuel Dispensing System TAFDS, the Modular Fuel Transporting and Dispensing System was developed by CEL. This modular fuel system was developed to achieve the logistical flexibility needed to support remote expeditionary sites that have no land lines of communication. The fuel system, composed to two types of SIXCON-sized modules, is helicopter transportable, compatible with ISO container standards, and modular in design. The tank module has a 1,090-gallon 0.413 cu meters capacity. When empty this module can be collapsed to one-third its erected height for ease of storage and transportation. The pump module contains an engine-driven pump, filterseparator, fuel monitor, hoses, and all ancillary equipment neccessary to deliver clean-dry fuel. Author
