1.2.5. Valve References. Throughout this manual there will be references to automatic valves using
Cla-Val model numbers because the majority of Air Force fueling systems are controlled using
Cla-Val components. It has also become common practice to refer to valves and pilot valves by the
Cla-Val designations, even those provided by other manufacturers. This is not an endorsement of one
company over another; rather, it is an expedient to make this manual understandable to the most
people. At installations with valves made by other companies, follow the manufacturers' procedures.
