2 What is the EI? Petro2013 Learned society promoting sound science Registered charityNot for profit organisation, incorporated in the UK by Royal CharterCelebrating 100th Birthday in 2014
3 What does the EI produce? Petro2013What does the EI produce?Minimum RequirementsGoodPracticeBestFactors of Safety/RedundancyNumber of Risk Mitigation MeasuresOur deliverables can be any of these – filtration specifications are minimum requirements, most other titles are good practice – this is the same as ‘recommended practice’ which is used in the US. For some topics – particularly environmental protection materials we are required to publish best practice.
4 References 14 existing EI publications Petro2013Greater international visibility – ICAO Manual on civil jet fuel supply (Doc 9977)References 14 existing EI publicationsAlso references 1 in preparation – driving need for timely delivery of EI/JIG 1530 Standard for aviation fuel quality upstream of airportsProvides renewed focus for EI on maintenance of publicationsEI commitment to ICAO to implement a robust communication plan encouraging uptake of Doc 9977 by all organizations handling jet fuel upstream of airports

8 EI aviation fuel handling publications issued in 2013 - upstream Petro2013EI aviation fuel handling publications issued in upstreamEI/JIG Standard 1530 Quality assurance requirements for the manufacture, storage and distribution of aviation fuels to airports, 1st edition, October 2013EI Research Report: A qualitative assessment of electrostatic risks in jet fuel handling and distribution, August 2013So starting with a couple of topics relating to fuel quality – both of which apply upstream of airports.The key deliverable this year has been the publication of EI/JIG Standard 1530
9 Petro2013 the new standard 1530 has now been published. The formal press launch will be held in London on 14 November – you are all welcome to attend
10 Petro2013EI/JIG Standard 1530 Quality assurance requirements for the manufacture, storage and distribution of aviation fuels to airportsCulmination of c450 days of industry drafting resources (inc 21 meetings of working group, totalling 40 days, since April 2011)Free electronic access to 1530 has been offered to ICAO (for all Member States)Any company that handles aviation fuels or synthetic aviation fuel components is encouraged to review the requirements and recommendations1530 includes Annex M ‘Implementing EI/JIG 1530 and how to claim conformance’Perhaps worth highlighting that the content has taken c450 days of drafting resources(9 working group members x 40 days in meetings = 360.WG member drafting time outside of meetings = c50 days54 people provided feedback, say at least one day each to review and submit comments = 54)
11 Petro2013The Standard recognises the concept of ‘Alternative Means of Conformance’ with 1530 requirements and provides definition of the process to be followedThe working group is developing a gap assessment tool/checklist to facilitate self-assessment of conformance (against the mandatory requirements)
12 Petro2013EI Research Report EI Research Report: A qualitative assessment of electrostatic risks in jet fuel handling and distribution, August 2013Detailed study contracted to Shell Global Solutions, with input from Dr Harold Walmsley, Dr Stephen Hall and conductivity additive suppliers. Draft circulated in 2012 for peer review.Findings presented to UK MoD Aviation Fuels Committee, March 2013, IATA Technical Fuel Forum, May 2013 and Coordinating Research Council, May 2013Offers a scientific explanation for the lack of ignition incidents in regions that do not mandate the use of SDA – either insufficient energy in brush discharges, insufficient flammable vapour, or bothEither insufficient energy in spark discharges, insufficient flammable vapour, or bothProposal has been made to the Defence Standard Executive Committee for the addition of SDA to be optional

16 EI 1596 Design and construction of aviation fuel filter vessels, Petro2013EI 1596 Design and construction of aviation fuel filter vessels,2nd edition, April 2013Provides mechanical specifications for vessels for use as FWS, filter monitors or microfilter systemsClarifies: internal epoxy coating requirements (ref to EI 1541); that it is not acceptable for work platforms to be welded or physically attached to vessels; that a specially installed clean-out connection is not required for vessels with an interior diameter of less than 71 cm (28 in.)Includes option of an automated device to ensure a pre-set dp is not exceeded in service, e.g. proximity sensor, electronic switch, pressure switch, or high point tracker (peak hold reading)
17 Petro2013EI 1596 continuedKey addition is introduction of standardised templates for vessel data plates and operational data platesPrinted copies of data plates (and 1582 similarity sheets) to be provided to assist record keeping by operatorsIt is recommended that operators specify EI nd edition for any new filter vessels
18 Particular thanks to Sean Condon for technical input. Petro2013EI HM 20 Proving of aviation fuelling positive displacement meters, 2nd edition, October 2013Provides industry-agreed procedures for use of reference meter or volumetric tank for proving of positive displacement aviation meters2nd edition incorporates significant updates, including proving of flow meters with electronic registers/heads, low flow overwing meter calibration, cleaning requirements for reference devices that have been used with products other than aviation turbine fuel.Particular thanks to Sean Condon for technical input.

20 New developments in filtration Petro2013New developments in filtrationEI 1582 filter/water separator similarity Electronic version of similarity sheet has been reissued to manufacturers to address feedback.EI 1590 Specifications and qualification procedures for aviation fuel microfilters3rd edition is in development. Initial manufacturers feedback has been incorporated.Will include a new 10 micron category of microfilter, intended for use in distribution systemsWill include 2” and 4” nominal diameter elements (currently all microfilters are 6”)Draft is currently available for industry reviewThere are three key filtration projects to be aware of:Firstly, an updated similarity spreadsheet has been issued for use by manufacturers. This has not introduced any new technical requirements, just amended some of the functionality, and provided extra rows to record plugs/caps and their model number.Work is underway with manufacturers on a 3rd edition of the microfilter specification, EI Developments are intended to encourage uptake in distribution systems
21 EI 1550 Filtration handbook Petro2013EI 1550 Filtration handbookDraft 2nd edition has been reviewed with filter manufacturers and EI committeeIncludes four new chapters (DP, filter installations, management of change and plugs/caps)Includes significant updates to seven other chaptersA draft has been issued for industry review until 16 Dec. SeePlease provide your feedbackMoving on to our filtration handbook, we are at an advanced stage of drafting the 2nd edition.Any topics for inclusion are welcome from any operators – please the EI

23 EI 1529 Aviation fuelling hoses and hose assemblies, 7th edition Petro2013EI 1529 Aviation fuelling hoses and hose assemblies, 7th editionAll global hose suppliers have been contacted for technical inputConfirmation that 1529 contains important differences to ISO 1825, which should be maintainedDraft 7th edition will be issued for manufacturer/stakeholder review, 4Q 2013EI 1584 Four inch hydrant system components and arrangements, addendum to 3rd editionRequirements for production quality assuranceYou heard earlier this week about aviation fuelling hose. The EI is custodian of one of the two global hose specifications, and is currently preparing a 7th edition. All of the known global hose suppliers have been contacted for their technical input, and several companies have met with the EI committee to discuss the content. There will be increased alignment with ISO 1825 – the international standard for hoses – but it has been reaffirmed that some of the additional test requirements in 1529 are important to retain.A draft of the proposed 7th edition will be made available for review later this year.

27 Currently with key stakeholders for review. Petro2013Multi-product pipelines: Minimum criteria to determine additive acceptabilityProvides a means for pipeline operators to demonstrate that additive containing fuels do not adversely affect other fuels, particularly jet fuel.Draft 3rd edition proposes additive acceptance based on lab screening alone if candidate additive is of similar chemistry. Also proposes a ‘water mapping’ assessment procedure as an alternative to pipeline trial.Currently with key stakeholders for review.Publication likely in 3Q 2013.
