EI 1550 2nd edition will assist anyone responsible for designing, purchasing, operating, maintaining or inspecting aviation fuel filtration systems, whether they are positioned at refineries, in distribution systems or at airports. The information provided is applicable globally.

EI 1550 1st edition (2007) became one of the most widely distributed EI publications and was cited by the International Civil Aviation Organization in its Doc 9977 Manual on civil aviation jet fuel supply.

This edition continues to provide an overview of the technical requirements from the series of EI aviation fuel filter specifications, which is specifically intended for filter users (rather than equipment manufacturers) and goes on to define good practice in the implementation and operation of filtration systems.

EI 1550 has been updated to take into account key developments in aviation fuel filtration in recent years, and
to provide five completely new chapters covering:
• differential pressure: measurement, monitoring and correction;
• de-rating filter monitor vessels with blank/dummy elements and filter/water separators with blinds/caps;
• filtration system installations (fixed facilities);
• management of change, and
• manufacturer’s model codes for filter elements.
