This publication has been prepared by the Energy Institute’s (EI) Aviation Committee. It is intended to give operators of airport fuel hydrant systems guidance in:

(a) determining the state of cleanliness of existing hydrant systems and possible causes of contamination, and
(b) methods of cleaning hydrant systems that are showing signs of contamination with particulate material, water and microbiological material.

A fuel hydrant system is a custom designed item and is very site-specific. No one set of conditions can be applied to all systems. Users of this publication should amend the guidance given to suit local conditions. Local and regional law and regulations should also be reviewed with respect to specific circumstances.
