from inductive electrical heating of solid materials or from
electrical arcs or sparks from chance resonant connections.
For additional information, refer to MIL-STD-461D and NFPA
407. Incorporate the following specific precautions and
restrictions in the design of petroleum fuel facilities:
a) Locate the radio transmitting antennas as far as
practically possible from fuel storage or transfer areas.
b) Do not locate the fuel storage or transfer
facilities closer than 300 feet (90 m) from aircraft warning
c) Do not locate fuel storage or transfer facilities
closer than 500 feet (150 m) from airport ground approach and
d) Do not locate fuel storage or transfer facilities
closer than 300 feet (90 m) from areas where airborne
surveillance radar may be operated.
e) Do not locate fuel storage and transfer
facilities closer than 100 feet (30 m) from airport surface
IDENTIFICATION. Identify all pipelines and tanks as
NATO designation, and directions of flow in accordance with
MIL-STD 161F. Mark valves, pumps, meters, and other items of
equipment with easily discernible painted numbers or numbered
corrosion-resistant metal or plastic tags attached with a
suitable fastener. Ensure numbers correspond to those on the
schematic flow diagrams and other drawings for the
ANTISTATIC DESIGN. Consider static build-up in the
design. Refer to CRC Report No. 346 and No. 355,
2003; and NAVFAC MO-230. Because of the many variables
involved, such as properties of fuels and geometry of
design factors such as flow velocities.
