184.108.40.206. Provide and calibrate permanently installed meters (BCE may delegate meter calibration
to the motor vehicle maintenance shop when this is advantageous to the Air Force) and schedule
220.127.116.11. Ensure all valves are identified both on the charts and on the valve itself by tagging (see
Attachment 4). Valve identification is a joint responsibility between LFM and FMF.
18.104.22.168. Provide technical experts to serve as the MAJCOM fuels engineer's designated
representative. Duties include:
22.214.171.124.1. Aiding contract management to ensure work on fuel systems conforms to the
applicable regulations and meets the job requirements.
126.96.36.199.2. Recommending approval/disapproval of contract work.
188.8.131.52.3. Overseeing tank cleaning operations.
184.108.40.206. Enforce these mandatory procedures:
220.127.116.11.1. Notify the FMF Resource Control Center (RCC) before removal of a system
component or when the system is opened in a manner that may result in a fuel spill.
18.104.22.168.2. Mechanically close off open fuel lines (blind flange, pipe caps, tube fittings) when
any system component is removed or altered and left unattended. Except for double block and
bleed (DBB) valves, a closed valve upstream that is locked or tagged is not considered a
positive shutoff and will not substitute for this requirement. When flanges are used to secure
the system, all bolts must be installed. NOTE: The individual who physically removes a
component or alters the system is responsible for mechanically closing off open fuel lines prior
to leaving the area, so ensuring the integrity of the fueling system. When removing components
from any system that remains packed with fuel, provide an alternate means of thermal
pressure/vacuum relief if needed. If alternate means are not available, then drain the system
until the work is complete. Depending on the volume, 1 F can cause a pressure change of 75
pounds per square inch (psi) inside a container or pipe.
22.214.171.124. Provide coordination and technical advice to the FMF on proper operation and
maintenance (O&M) of the fuel system.
