SAFER FUEL LINES: THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS FROM CCL

The complete preformed double walled fuel lines are manufactured throughout from high grade carbon steel pile. The purpose of the steel outer sheath is to overcome unreliable results produced by utilizing flexible sheating which is said to be prone to damage and wear both from vibration and mechanical sources. Further advantage is gained by the stiffening effect on the fuel pipes. The possibilities for retrofitting are reviewed. The system, called Duoline, is now in operation in more than 400 units covering a total output of about 200,000 bhp.
