Aviation fuel hydrant systems at airports are the penultimate step in the delivery chain of aviation fuel into aircraft. It is therefore imperative to ensure that the quality and cleanliness of the jet fuel in the hydrant is maintained at all times.

This publication has been developed to assist in the optimisation of hydrant system operations. It provides recommended practices for operational checks, inspections and maintenance procedures to ensure aviation fuel quality assurance and cleanliness standards are met. It also provides recommendations for associated equipment, from pump sets to hydrant pit valves and for those undertaking routine checks and inspections of such equipment.

This publication is applicable to owners, operators and users of aviation fuel hydrant systems at airports worldwide. It will also be of interest to procurement managers of equipment and materials for hydrant system inspection, maintenance and checking purposes, including service providers. Hydrant system designers will also find this publication useful as background information on the expectations of hydrant system owners and operators.

This publication includes a free A3 annual planner pull-out/separate downloadable pdf.
