SPEED DICTATES SOLID STATE LOGIC FOR AIRPORT REFUELING SYSTEM

A refueling system installed at the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport is described. The refueling operation is based on a demand type system, in which pressure is maintained on all lines at approximately 110 psi. When a refueling cart connects to an outlet and begins to draw fuel from the system and into an airplane, the resulting flow from the pump station automatically brings on the number of transfer pumps needed to supply the required fuel and to maintain the required pressure. Features of the logic circuitry are pointed out.
