Institute of Petroleum Research Report: Electrostatic discharges in two-inch fuel filter monitors.
This report documents an investigation commissioned by the Institute of Petroleum's Aviation Committee into electrostatic discharge in 50 mm (two inch) nominal diameter aviation fuel filter monitors. The investigation was commissioned following a small number of reports of audible cracks emanating from the inside of filter monitor vessels during fuelling operations, and reports of black marks on some elements and inner surfaces of vessels. The findings of this investigation will be of interest and use to all those
involved in aviation fuel handling operations and filter monitor manufacture worldwide.
