We have been wanting to start this series for a while now; and I believe we are at a good point where we can highlight several key points that you need to consider when looking at Aviation fuel transfer pumps. Often, we get the questions where a need to set up multiple sites with above ground storage tanks, such as our standard set up for Jet A including the workhorse UL 2085 and the F921, both Double Wall for Aviation fuel, with a very unique portable pump package.
The need to have not only portable systems, but also cost effective and durable AV gas and Jet A transfer pumps; is now available in a compact package carrying a big punch.
What we would like to do is start with the standard set up, and explain each component and show you how the package comes together beautifully.
The question is “I need an aviation fuel transfer pump that can draw power from a battery” –> Now, the underlining reason is simple; portability, right? if you are wanting to stay away from the traditional AC Power transfer pumps for either Jet A or AV gas; then this is the portable set up:
Let’s meet this little guy, and don’t let its size fool you because the spec’s make it a very desirable set up:
1″ NPT, 12 VDC 1 HP Continuous Duty – Explosion-Proof, 26 GPM at 20 PSI, 20′ of 10 Gage Power Cord, Velcon VF-61 Filter Canister, and 3/4″ Powder- coated Tube Frame to Accommodate Velcon filter canister. This set up has been very successful outside the US where DC power is the only available choice.
The package continuos with the recommended differential pressure gauge:
What does this do? –> When the needle is in the green zone of the gauge during normal flow, the differential pressure is less than 15 psid across the installed element, and the element does not need to be changed out.
When the needle is in the red zone, the differential pressure is more than 15 psid and the element should be changed out. Simple !
Last, the trusted source for Aviation filters, Velcon.
Velcon aviation fuel filter element
Free and emulsified water removal to less than 5 ppm / 1/2 micrometer particle removal / Provides protection against “slugs” of water / Pressure increases signals need for cartridge change / use with existing filter housing.
So, that is it; options include an Aviation flow meter, wireless Av gas or Jet A tank telemetry/monitors… You are ready to go!! This set up is good for Jet A fuel, AV gas, JP8, and JP5.
Refueling your aircraft has never been so easy; giving you flexibility, portability, and continuos duty cycle.
