dispensers with an inline filtration system capable of
sediment removal to 10 mg/L or less.
Card and Key Locks. Consider the possible economic
and operational advantages of using an electronic card or key
system which permits 24-hour unmanned operation of the
facility. These types of systems are comprised of a card/key
reader which is located near the service pump. The reader is
activated by a card or key and accumulates issues and customer
data which is downloaded to a central computer on a periodic
basis. Activities with capitalized fuel, that is petroleum
product owned by DLA/DFSC, are eligible for projects to
install automated card/key lock systems. Activities with
capitalized fuel report inventories of these products to DFSC
through a system called FAS. Automated systems to control
capitalized inventories must be able to interface with the
FAS. These types of automated systems are managed under the
AFSS program by DFSC. It should be noted that AFSS equipment
is used to control issues of product and is not an automated
tank gauging system. Further information on AFSS systems and
funding programs may be obtained by contacting DFSC-FE.
Tactical Refueler Fill Stands. Equip similar to
truck loading facilities covered in Section 3 of this handbook
except provide a grounding reel in lieu of the high-level
shutoff/ground detecting system. Verify the type of nozzle
required by the user.
. Surround fueling islands with a concrete
slab graded at a minimum of 1 percent towards a drainage inlet
connected to a containment or treatment facility. Provide
containment and drainage for tactical refuelers at the same
level of protection as in Section 4 of this handbook for
aviation refueler loading.
VAPOR RECOVERY. Provide vapor recovery in
accordance with guide specifications unless there are more
stringent local, state, or federal codes or regulations. Some
requirements are in 40 CFR 60 Subpart XX. If gasoline is
being handled, provide, as a minimum, Stage I vapor recovery
