Considerations on Ice Formation in Aircraft Fuel Systems
- Aerospace Standard
Published April 20, 1964 by SAE International in United States
In the past, incidents and accidents occurred in the operation of military and civil aircraft which were attributed to the formation of ice in the engine fuel supply system resulting in intermittent or complete starvation of fuel flow. Considerable effort was devoted by many airframe companies, engine and accessory manufacturers and government agencies to study the problem of ice formation and to evolve corrective measures. By its very nature, the problem of ice formation was difficult to identify and analyze. However, corrective measures were developed which virtually eliminated serious icing problems in aircraft fuel systems. For many years incidents and accidents have not occurred on aircraft equipped with fuel heaters and/or operated with fuel containing anti-icing additive.

* 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.
