automatic air release head is included, provide block function
j) Provide a positive displacement or turbine meter
and meter proving connections. Provide a strainer on the
upstream side of the meter.
k) On the off-loading riser, install a visual fuel
flow indicator (maximum pressure 275 psi (1900 kPa) at 100
degrees F (38 degrees C), Seals Viton maximum temperature 350
degrees F (177 degrees C)). This will allow visual quality
shut off the pumps when off-loading is complete to prevent air
build-up in the receipt lines.
DISPENSING FACILITIES. Fuel is normally dispensed
from a bulk facility via an installation pipeline,
interterminal pipeline, tank truck, or tank car.
Pipeline Pumping Facilities
handbook, pipelines are either interterminal pipelines or
installation pipelines. Installation pipelines are commonly
used to transfer fuel to an aircraft fueling facility or a
marine dispensing facility. Interterminal pipelines are
cross-country between installations. However, since pipeline
pumping facilities are typically at a bulk fuel storage
facility, they are covered in this section.
adequate head and capacity. Always provide one additional
pump as back-up.
proving connections. Consideration can also be given to
alternative meter technologies such as ultrasonic meters.
Compensate for fuel temperature at custody transfer point.
c) Provide fuel sampling connections for collecting
