Fuel and Oil Management Essential to Aviation Safety
Aircraft safety issues arise from three fuel-related conditions: fuel starvation, which means the fuel fails to reach the engine, complete fuel exhaustion before landing, or contamination and dirty fuel and oil which clogs filters and leads to increased maintenance costs or worse engine shut down. Therefore, fuel and oil management on aerospace engines is an essential component to safety and reliability.
Operators must have an intimate awareness of fuel and oil system health including, amount and content of the tanks, pressure, temperature, and filter life.
Monitoring Fuel and Oil Pressure and Temperature
Engine sensors and switches provide the operator with critical information to maintain efficient use of the aircraft’s fuel and assure that the propulsion and power generation systems are properly lubricated. In addition, with the advent of the modern aircraft, sensor feedback is essential to an aircraft’s Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) increasing reliability and operational availability.
CCS’ sensors and switches provide the critical information modern aircraft fuel and oil systems require and aircrew need to safely operate. These include our extremely reliable Dual Snap® pressure, temperature and flow switches; pressure transducers, and RTD temperature transducers.
