Facility capabilities

Fuel

The on-site fuel capability is used over a broad spectrum of requirements, including manufacturing tests, acceptance tests and qualification tests. A typical requirement would call for performance of the following list of tests:

  Fuel Pressure Cycle Testing (DAT)
Performance
Endurance
Burst
Surge
Fire Resistance
Leakage (internal)
Leakage (external)


Typical nominal test capabilities for a three (3)-inch line size cover three areas, (we would like to point out that testing capability expansion is planned so that we can go to a nominal 18-inch line size):

  Static Bench Test for Leakage (100 gpm at 1300 psig)
Self-contained Dynamic Test (low flow) (150 gpm at 600 psig)
Self-contained Dynamic Test (high flow)
(300 gpm at 1300 psig and 1800 gpm at 600 psig)


The types of fluids used vary based on application. However, for fire and safety reasons, non-flammable mixtures are used. Meggitt will test with actual fuels on an as-required basis. The following fluids are used:

  PD-680
TTS 735 Type 1
TTS 735 Type 2
JP-4/5/6
Diesel fuel (all grades)
For natural gas (inert mixtures)
