This Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes a test procedure and recommended surge pressure limit value for the evaluation of fixed aircraft pressure fuel dispensing systems. Note: This ARP is not applicable to aerial refueling systems or mobile aircraft refueling systems (trucks, hydrant servicing vehicles, etc.). Testing of aerial refueling systems is addressed in ARSAG documents. Testing of mobile refueling systems is addressed in ARP 5918. Note: This ARP does not address requirements that may be specific to the testing of shipboard aircraft refueling systems.
This ARP is needed to establish a recommended test procedure for fixed aircraft refueling systems. This is a companion document to ARP 5918 which addresses the testing of mobile aircraft refueling systems. This ARP replaces AS1284 which has been stabilized.
