This paper presents a swiring flow type jet pump which has been developed and in put into practical use in transferring fuel between sumps in saddle-shaped fuel tanks. The pump is driven by the force of excess fuel returning from the engine. The major structural features of the pump are described along with its performance. Various problems encountered in the process of developing the pump are discussed along with the technologies developed to resolve them. Particular attention is focused on the effects that the geometries if the nozzle, throat and swirling groove have on fuel transfer efficiency. The results of experiments carried out to analyze these correlations are also presented.
