Our product range comtains a wide range of Lightning-Safe Aircraft Fuel Tank Gravity Fuel Filler Caps and Aircraft Fuel Tank Pressure Refuel Caps
Parker Aerospace lightning-safe gravity fuel filler caps are used to lock, seal, and act as an identifier for the gravity fill port of an aircraft fuel tank. The advantages of Parker’s gravity fuel filler cap include the use of a lightweight composite base that meets current lightning-safe standards, O-rings with a fluorosilicone seal, and a lanyard made of polyurethane. Non-lightning-safe caps have lanyards of varied material and type, such as chain links and cables. Parker Aerospace gravity fuel filler caps are three inches in diameter, and are both indexing and non-indexing. To fuel the aircraft, the caps are manually actuated by lifting and turning the handle, which vents the fuel tank. The cap is then removed from its mating adapter, allowing the aircraft to be refueled. The cap remains attached to the aircraft by a lanyard. Once refueling is complete, the cap is inserted back into the adapter and the handle is actuated back to a closed position, which effectively reseals the gravity fill refuel port. Parker Aerospace is the leading provider of Lightning-Safe® products for aircraft, with almost 50 years of lighting protection expertise. Our equipment will work to dissipate the static charge caused by lightning strikes and other electrical upset conditions. Our array of Lightning-Safe products has been designed to meet and even exceed the stringent lightning safety requirements of the aircraft industry.
Parker Aerospace’s pressure refuel caps are used to lock, seal, and vent the pressure refuel port for an aircraft fuel tank. Pressure refueling allows for single point refueling on larger aircraft. Parker’s pressure refuel cap is designed in accordance with military specification MIL-C-8605B (for technical requirements) and MS29526-2 (for envelope requirements). The cap can be used with all aircraft fuels, and also features an aluminum base and handle, a fluorosilicone O-ring seal, and an anti-sparking brass chain lanyard (per industry standard RR-C-271) with a plastic tubing cover and corrosion resistant steel hooks. Lanyards can also be fabricated with corrosion-resistant steel or flexible plastic and fuel resistant tubing. Parker Aerospace pressure refuel caps are 4.5 inches in diameter, with a refuel coupling indexing feature. They fit into a 2.5 inch pressure refuel adapter per military specification MS24484. To fuel the aircraft, the caps are manually actuated by pressing down on the handle, which will vent and unlock the cap for removal by twisting. The cap remains attached to the aircraft by a lanyard. Once refueling is complete, the cap is inserted back onto the adapter and twisted until locked into place, which effectively reseals the pressure refuel port. Parker Aerospace offers over 3, 000 active, certified parts, including market-leading fuel caps and adapters. From flame arrestors to fuel caps, Parker Aerospace components are meticulously designed to meet the highest military and commercial specifications and standards. Our on-site development, qualification, and test capabilities are just further advantages to partnering with Parker.
