The pipeline mechanical characteristics are:
Diameter :10 inch
and the material that is made from is according API 5L Gr B.
The design is according the American Code ASME 31.4 that is related to fuel pipelines.For the pipeline
thickness a 0,5 sequrity factor is used,that it is more severe from ASME demands (factor=0,72).
The pipe is coating with a 8mm poly-ethylene cover for corrosion protection.
The pipeline was designed to transfer 300m³/h Jet A-1 to 698 m LC or 58 barg and it is based to the
American Code ASME 31.4 for the liquid hydrocarbon transfer.The maximum pressure allowed is 69barg.
The Fuel temperature is between 10 and 300 C and the density is between 0,779 and 0,843 to 10°C and
between 0,757kg/lit and 0,824kg/lit to the 30°C.The pipe diameter,the pumps and the filters are selected
for 300m³/h and the flow rate for the present needs of the Airport is 200m³/h.
