EI 1596: Design and construction of aviation fuel filter vessels

This publication provides mechanical specifications for the design and construction of vessels for  filter elements used in aviation fuel handling systems. Three types of vessels are covered: filter monitor, filter/water separator and microfilter vessels.

One of the key updates included in this second edition is the requirement to use the templates for standardised vessel plates/labels.

Those involved in the manufacturing and purchasing of filter vessels will find this publication of interest. Although it is primarily intended to apply to vessels for civilian applications, many of the requirements may also be applicable to vessels intended for military use. Further advice should be sought from manufacturers for specific military applications.
