Abstract:

The objective of the field test program was the measurement of filter charging levels in actual aircraft fueling hydrant cart equipment to provide correlation data for the laboratory charging test program. The field test location and equipment were selected to provide a high total fuel throughput under typical refueling conditions. The designated hydrant carts were equipped with new separator elements supplied from specific batches by two major manufacturers. Periodic electrostatic charging measurements were conducted over a range of typical refueling conditions, which could be approximated in the laboratory program. New and used filter elements from the selected batches and representative fuel samples were provided to the laboratory program for correlative measurements.
