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
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.
