ATA 103 Fuel Filtration Updates 2009 ATA 103 Notice
In the latest revision of ATA 103 (ATA Spec 103 Revision 2009), many of the changes directly impact fuel filtration. This link provides some of the major changes and what they mean for those in the fuel handling industry.

Differential Pressure & Rate of FLow GaugeNEW Flow Rate Indicator / Differential Pressure Gauge
This new product is to make it possible for the operator to record the flow rate each time that he reads the differential pressure gauge.  A differential pressure reading is of little value if the flow rate is not known.  The primary existing market for this new product is in the hydrant systems at airports.  It is necessary to have a way to obtain the flow rate of fuel passing through every filter separator but the cost for conventional flow meters is very expensive, so there are very few in airports today.  Another location where the rate of flow is needed is where refueler trucks are loaded, although many have flow meters if ownership of the fuel changes.

The maximum flow rating for the 5th Edition elements of the API (EI) 1581 specification is probably different from the nameplate on older filter separators, so another advantage of our flow meter is that the rate of flow pilot on the Cla-Val (or other brand) slug valve can now be adjusted.

Following is a partial listing of aviation and fuel products with links to .pdf files that provide the information you'll require to design, trouble shoot, or upgrade any aviation and fuel system.

Mini Monitor Aviation Fuel Testing Kit


MINI-MONITOR

The MiniMonitor® Kit is used to test aviation fuel for particulate contamination using the procedures described in ASTM D2276. A measured volume of fuel is passed from a flowing pipe directly through a 0.8 micrometer membrane. The plastic monitor holding the membrane is placed in an aluminum housing. Dirt particles are caught on the membrane, which can be visually color rated or weighed for a gravimetric rating.

Gammon Hydrometers & Thermometers

Hydrometers & Thermometers To ASTM Standards
The hydrometers and thermometers listed in this bulletin are specially selected to cover a wide range of fuels, including all aviation fuels The hydrometers having ASTM numbers conform   totally to ASTM E-100. For gravity or density ranges above or below those listed here, please contact our office or your local distributor.

Deadman & Water Control Systems

DEADMAN & WATER CONTROL SYSTEMS
Explosion proof controls for 120 – 240 VAC 50/60hz & 6 – 48 VDC These intrinsically safe rated systems utilize U.L. Listed Class I, Division I, Group D components and a U.L. listed intrinsically safe control (Please note that controls on DC units are MESA, not U.L.). Power levels in the cord and handle and/or the water sensor are too low to cause a shock or fire even if the cord is severed. NOTE: Conductive type water controls should NOT be used on systems pumping fuel with anti icing additive (DiEGME/Prist®) as used by the military, Phillips, and some other oil companies.

Gammon Aircraft Fueling Hose Tester

AIRCRAFT FUELING HOSE TESTER
This tester is designed to perform integrity tests on hose assemblies used in the refueling of aircraft. A thorough inspection of the hose should be done before testing, and if any significant flaw is found, the test should not be run. The purpose of this  test is to ensure that the couplings are still secure and that no physical flaw exists that cannot be seen on a physical  inspection. Air MUST NOT BE PRESENT in the system or else, in the event of a  failure of the hose or a fitting, the trapped  air will cause an explosive release carrying particles at high speed as it expands.

Gammon Tank Gauging Tapes

TANK GAUGING TAPES
Selecting The correct tape for your  application depends not only on the depth of the tank but the types of fuels or oils in your tanks. The chromium plated steel tape is exceptionally good for dark oils because the contrast between the wetted and non-wetted surface is easily recognized.

Gammon Aircraft Refueling Hose

GAMMON JETCRAFT INTERNATIONAL AIRCRAFT REFUELLING HOSE
Gammon Jetcraft International refuelling hose, with its advanced design, actually weighs less than other American hoses, yet accepts standard Dixon/Rostra and ProGrip/Civicon non-reattachable, as well as European-style reattachable couplings. This hose is made to be rugged, with a full 300 psi (20 bar) working pressure and semi-conductive cover (API-1529, Grade 2, Class C).

Gammon In Tank Samplers

In-Tank Samplers
The unique Model GTP-9021 was developed specifically to fit through the small gauging found on U.S. Air Force bases where level gauging electric cables are also present. It was important that there be no tangling of our sampler with those cables and that the cables not be damaged. Therefore, the outside diameter is only 3.1 in. (79 mm)

Gammon Water Detection Probe


NEW GAMMON ONE-CC™ WATER PROBE*
Detects Water in Filter Separator Sumps / Periodic Testing Requires Only 1cc of Water
The One-CC™ Water Detector Probe is designed for use in any intrinsically safe electronic system. This new probe can therefore replace existing probes in Whittaker / Thiem / Parker equipment.

Gammon Fuel Sump Separator

Storage Tank Sump Separator
The SUMP SEPARATOR separates water from fuel that is drained from storage tank sumps. Fuel-free water is discharged from one port. Water-free fuel is returned to the storage tank.

Fuel Additive Injection System

VIPER ADDITIVE INJECTION SYSTEMS
Refined, high performance additive injector based on our well proven pneumatic piston technology. No pipe cutting is required for installation, and the Viper is just as accurate at 5gpm as at 1600gpm.

HIGH PRESSURE MEMBRANE TESTER PERFORMS FUEL TESTS TO ASTM D2676 AT PRESSURES UP TO 450 PSI
STAINLESS STEEL HOUSING AND VALVE
• FLUSHING HOSE
• INCLUDES GROUNDING AND BONDING HOSE AND ASTM COLOR BOOK

Jet fuel particulate contamination testing is performed to ASTM D2276 and IP-216. Conventional equipment on the market is not suitable for high pressures. This is because the plastic monitor is only rated for 100 psi. Gammon Technical Products has designed a housing which allows testing using standard plastic monitors up to 450 psi.

Differential Pressure Limiting Pilot

Differential Pressure Limiting Pilot
Many filter systems operate under the threat of a sudden influx of contamination that plugs the filter elements. Recently, water absorbing elements have added to this concern. If no one is watching the differential pressure gauge at the time, you can burst the elements, with the dirt and debris going downstream, possibly into the aircraft. We designed the Gammon DP-Pilot so you can forget about element bursting or deck plate damage with any type   of element, even the water absorbing elements.

Heavy Duty Nozzle Strainer

HEAVY DUTY NOZZLE STRAINER 1" NPT
This simple product serves an important function, providing a "last line of defense" to prevent you from dispensing debris from your nozzle. Our heavy duty strainer is made of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum with a 100 mesh 300 series stainless steel cone strainer and Dupont Viton gasket, compatible with almost any liquid product from motor oil to Avgas. It was developed primarily for use with the OPW 7 series automatic nozzle, an excellent nozzle, but due to being automatic, it cannot accept a spout strainer. Fits any 1" npt nozzle. Do not use nozzles with hold-open devices for aviation fuels or self-service installations.

ASTM TEST Method D5452 Test Equipment

Support Stand and Apparatus for ASTM TEST Method D5452
Designed to Avoid Electrostatic Hazards Eliminates Need to Hold Container While Pouring into Funnel
As described in ASTM Method D5452, the Support Stand is designed to hold the container that was used to collect the sample in the field. There is no need to transfer the sample from the collection container to another container, thereby eliminating possible contamination from the second container.

Coupling Wear Gauge

GAUGE TESTS FUELING ADAPTERS FOR EXCESSIVE WEAR IN LESS THAN 1 MINUTE
Leakage during refueling is often caused by excessive wear on the underside of the 3 lugs that are located on the outer edge of the fueling adapter. This wear reduces the sealing force between the nose seal of the refueling nozzle and the sealing face on the adapter. To check for lug wear, set the gauge in the adapter and rotate it so that the gauging pin moves toward the lug. If the pin passes under the lug, wear is excessive.
