2. Verify the product and estimate the amount of
product to be loaded.
Vehicles without high-level controls or
alarms must be monitored via the fill stand
meter during the filling process. Secure
pumping if the meter exceeds the amount
previously issued from the truck.
3. Connect the bond or high-level control cable.
4. Connect the delivery nozzle to the trucks
5. Set the meter and enter the necessary
information on the truck fill order or other form.
6. Start the filling operation slowly.
Trucks that have been completely
drained must be minimally fueled (500 to
1,000 gallons) using another truck set at a
low flow rate, to cover the bottom inlet valve
inside the empty trucks tank.
7. After the tank is filled, secure the pump
unless it has secured automatically.
8. Disconnect the nozzle.
9. Disconnect the bond or high-level control
10. Complete the paperwork.
11. Inspect the truck for leaks.
12. Remove the refueler to the truck parking
COLD REFUELING OF
AIRCRAFT BY TRUCK
Positioning of refuelers to service aircraft is done
in the same mannerwithout variationso that all
personnel involved know exactly what to expect.
Whenever possible, refuelers should proceed down a
line of parked aircraft, with the driving path
perpendicular to the aircraft fuselage axis, at the
maximum distance the hose length will permit
servicing. However, a truck must never approach
closer than 10 feet of an aircraft. The normal refueler
approach path, shown in figure 7-7, applies to all
fixed-wing tactical aircraft and helicopters. Normally,
no turns are made except at the end of the parking
line. Driving between aircraft parked in line should be
avoided; however, the preferred approach is not always
possible. Figure 7-8 shows acceptable alternate methods
when aircraft are not parked in line or when hose
lengths are insufficient for service. Figure 7-9 shows the
Figure 7-7.Normal refueler approach path and safety zone.
