Minimization of Electrostatic Hazards in Aircraft Fuel Systems
- Aerospace Standard
Published August 09, 2013 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides background information, technical data and related technical references for minimization of electrostatic hazards in aircraft fuel systems.
Techniques used to minimize the electrostatic hazard include:
Reducing fueling rate into tank bays including use of multiple refueling inlet nozzles.
Reducing refuel plumbing flow velocities.
Introducing fuel into the tank at a low velocity near the bottom and directing it to impinge upon a grounded conducting surface.
Avoiding electrically isolated conductors in the fuel tank.
Using conductivity additives in the fuel.
AIR1662A has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE five-year review policy.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
