Hydrant Control Valve
Each Hydrant Control Valve shall be operated to demonstrate the following:
3.5.7.1
Surge Shut-Down Capability
Surge from shut-off of on-board aircraft fill valve can be simulated by
closing a fill line valve to the tank truck or bladder, use a three (3)
second closure.

NOTE: For Air Force Projects, select Contracting
Officer and the Command Fuel Facilities Engineer.
For Navy/Marine Corps or Army Projects, select
Contracting Officer and include in MOU if command
specific representative or his designated
representative will participate in performance
testing.
**************************************************************************
In the event a portion of the system or any piece of equipment fails to
meet the test, make the necessary repairs or adjustments and repeat the
Performance Test until satisfactory performance is obtained. The
determination of satisfactory performance shall be made by the [Contracting
Officer and the Command Fuel Facilities Engineer] [Contracting Officer].
3.6.2
Control Valve Tagging
After the performance testing and system acceptance, tag the control valves
with their final adjustments.
3.6.3
Final Acceptance
Fill the system with fuel and operate leak-free prior for acceptance.
Anything wet with fuel is considered to be leaking.
3.6.3.1
Operating Tank High Liquid Level Shut-Off Valve Test and Adjustments
During the final filling of operating tanks, check the tank automatic high
liquid level shut-off valve for proper functioning at least three times by
lowering the fuel level and refilling again. Adjust valve to achieve a
safe fill level.
3.6.3.2
Tank Level Indicator Adjustments
Also during the final filling of operating tanks, adjust and calibrate the
tank level indicators including the final setting of the high high level
(HHLA) and high level (HLA) alarms. Since the HHLA is at a point higher
than the High Liquid Level Shut-Off Valve float set point, an artificial
method of simulating HHL must be used.
3.6.3.3
Water Draw-Off System Test
During the performance testing, fill Water Draw-off Systems from Operating
Tank sump to ensure proper operation. After filling system, allow time for
fuel/water mixture to separate. Verify liquid separation through system's
sight glasses. Proper operation includes capability to drain separated
water and capability to pump separated fuel back to a full Operating Tank.

START-UP COMMISSIONING PROCEDURES FORMS
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Develop the example/starting point attachment
for the final testing plan in unison with MAJCOM as
a function of the system layout. Table templates
are available at
http://www.wbdg.org/ccb/NAVGRAPH/graphtoc.pdf. Edit
tables as required for the project and provide to
the contractor.

Use the forms provided by the Contracting Officer in the System Start-up
Plan submittal.[ Generic templates of the forms (not specifically prepared
for this project) are available at
http://www.wbdg.org/ccb/NAVGRAPH/graphtoc.pdf.] The Contractor and system
supplier are responsible for implementing system start-up in coordination
with ongoing base operations.
