provisions are required for interterminal (cross-country) and
installation (as described in Section 6 of this handbook)
e) Provide an interface tank to receive mixed fuels
at the beginning and end of a shipment unless the commercial
pipeline company can provide this service satisfactorily.
f) Provide a breakout tank only if pipeline flow
Provide valves to divert the flow of fuel from a receipt tank
to the breakout tank in the event fuel transfer is blocked by
a manual or automatic valve within the fuel facility system
such that the fuel facility system would be overpressurized
pipeline supply pump. Provide appropriate breakout tank
overfill alarms and alarm breakout operation so fuel facility
operators can take necessary steps to stop pipeline flow.
Provide means of transferring fuel out of breakout tank back
review with the pipeline operator and perform a transient
surge analysis to determine if surge pressure reduction
methods are required to avoid damage to the pipeline.
g) Provide means of inbound filtration for all
products. The selection of filtration depends on anticipated
impurities, the source of fuel, and the shipping methods. For
aviation turbine fuels, refer to "Special In-Bound Filtration"
paragraph of Section 4 of this handbook. Consider the use of
micronic filters, cyclonic filters, and haypack filters as
possible filtration/pre-filtration devices. Avoid the use of
water slugs or other rapid-closing valves on pipeline receipt
Tank Truck and Tank Car Off-loading Facilities
be supplied with fuel by tank truck or tank car or both. At
facilities with pipeline or water transport as their principal
supply source, provide tank truck or tank car deliveries as a
secondary supply source. Tank truck deliveries are the most
common method. However, special transportation considerations
or changing circumstances may make the use of rail facilities
desirable. Therefore, at an activity with railroad service,
