Top loading of any refueler truck is not permitted.
e) When authorized by Service Headquarters, protect
the loading rack by a weather cover designed for severe
weather conditions. The weather cover must be justified by
temperature and snow) or economically justified by reducing
stormwater runoff and eliminating the need for stormwater
collection and treatment. If the protective structure is
included in the design, ensure the underside of the roof is
high enough to provide operator head room when walking on top
of the truck and for access to rail car domes. Ensure
structural design is in accordance with the Army Corps of
Engineers AEI and MIL-HDBK-1002/3.

use in Class I, Division 1, Group D hazardous areas in
accordance with NFPA 70, regardless of the type of fuel
Equipment Required. Provide separate piping, pumps,
loading connections, and controls for each different type or
grade of fuel. Provide an individual block valve for each
fill connection. Include the following equipment in each
refueler truck fill stand:
a) Self-closing emergency valve with 165 EF (74 EC)
fusible link (except for Air Force projects).
b) Shutoff valves for servicing equipment.
c) Horizontal filter/separator conforming to API
Publ 1581, unless fill stand is supplied from a direct fueling
system via a non-ferrous branch connection downstream of the
