Electrically connecting units before operations begin in order to equalize any static
potential that might exist and to provide a continuous path for any static potential that
might be generated after operations begin. Static potential is eliminated or prevented by
grounding one or more of the bonded units.
To grow together. To unit into a whole. To cause small droplets of water to unite into
A filter element designed to remove solid contaminants, and to break the emulsion of
water in the pumpage into large droplets. The pumpage flows from the inside to the
outside of the element.
Condition of a part that prevents the part from performing its intended function, caused by
normal aging, accident or manufacturing imperfection.
Condition of a part caused by weathering, excessive heat, excessive cold, chemical
Difference between inlet and outlet pressure at a filter or pump. An increase of
differential pressure indicates a restriction or blockage in the unit (e.g., a build up of
sediment in a filter).
Separation of couplings without loss of fuel.
A dispersion of fine water droplets in the pumpage.
Connecting single or bonded units to a ground rod so that any static potential will be
discharged into the earth. If two or more units are bonded and one is grounded, the
entire system is effectively grounded.
Failure to operate in a normal manner.
To observe a condition or operation such as that indicated by an indicator light or meter.
The fluid being pumped by the fuel transfer pump.
A filter element that repels coalesced water droplets. The pumpage flows from the
outside to the inside of the element.
