Test Stand: Fuel Flow

The Chant Engineering Model 8420 Fuel Flow Test Stand is used to dynamically test and certify aircraft in-flight refueling equipment.

The test stand consists of a 2000 gallon jet fuel tank along with the necessary valves, pumps, manifolds and operators controls. Note the full capacity drip pan around the entire structure, in the event of a tank or unit under test (UUT) failure the entire quantity of jet fuel is contained. In use the UUT's are connected to the various flanges for testing. The operator is in an enclosed building separated from the Test Stand for safety. The operator's controls are remote, in the operator facility. There is complete data acquisition; each test is stored in the computer and can be reviewed at any time or a certificate can be printed.
