How To Customize Y our Aircraft Fuel Pumps An aircraft fuel system helps to pump manage and deliver aviation or jet fuel to the propulsion system and auxiliary power unit of an aircraft. Depending upon the aircraft in which they are installed the fuel systems significantly differ. The basic setup is a simple fuel system with a tanker that can manage its own fuel and provide fuel to another aircraft. How does the fuel system in an aircraft work Fuel is piped through the fuel lines to a fuel control valve. This valve acts as a shut-off valve that provides a means to prevent the fuel from reaching the engine in case of an engine fire. The valve also helps the pilot to choose the tank that should feed the engine so that the fuel load can be balanced to reduce the banking moment. Along with the valve there is also a fuel filter that can be opened to drain fuel impurities that are denser than petroleum mainly water and sediment. How to customize a fuel pump The fuel pumps are thus one of the most integral parts of an aircraft. They are available as readily available pumps or customized options to meet specific operational requirements for the fuel type temperatures delivered flow and inlet/discharge pressures. Other elements to be considered while customizing a fuel pump include mounting configuration allowable installation weight and available electric drive power. However you must make sure that the fuel pump you choose is designed to the required military specifications.

You could have two segments of a fuel pump designed for your application – a boost pump to supply pressurized fuel from the main supply tank to the engine and a transfer pump to move the fuel from one tank to another so that the center of gravity of the aircraft is maintained and the primary tanks remain full during flight. There are various kinds of fuel pumps you can use. Brushed fuel pump – These pumps perform both the boost and transfer functions defined above. They can be available in mounting arrangements of tank submerged in-line and cartridge/canister options. These pumps are best used for general aviation business jets and rotor aircrafts. Brushless fuel pump – These pumps also perform both boost and transfer functions. They are powered by a brushless drive system consisting of a permanent magnet motor and analog electronic controller. The mounting arrangements for these pumps range in tank submerged and cartridge/canister options. Constant frequency fuel pump – These pumps are designed for military aircrafts rotor aircrafts and regional jets. They run on constant frequency power input and perform both boost and transfer functions in the fuel system. They are available in mounting arrangements of tank submerged in-line and cartridge/canister options. Variable frequency fuel pump – These pumps are best suitable for military aircrafts regional jets and commercial transport aircrafts. They run on variable frequency power input and perform both boost and transfer functions in the fuel system. The mounting arrangements available for these pumps include tank submerged and cartridge/canister options. Another element you can customize for your aircraft is the cable harness. With thousands of miles of cables being used within an aircraft a cable harness seems to be a better alternative to manage these cables and clearing the mess and tangles while preventing shocks and trips and the damage caused to wires from moisture vibration and abrasion. And for this you can get in touch with a professional aerospace cable harness manufacturer in India one like Miracle Aerospace. Here you can have all kinds of quality certified cable harnesses like flat ribbon EMI shielded power RF airborne and military looms.
