This report covers the test and evaluation of four couplingsvalves used with the 500-gallon collapsible drum the existing poppet valve, a new redesigned poppet valve, a Carter refueldefuel valve that works in conjunction with the single point refueling nozzle, and a Kamvalok dry-break coupling valve. The purpose of this testing was to determine maximum flow capability of each valve design and identify any new characteristics that may impact performance of the FARE system.
