  • On the Skids in Qatar...
    MSI Refueling Skid

    Millennium Systems International has recently completed the delivery and installation of a complete Jet Fuel Handling System for Al Udeid Airbase in Qatar. In cooperation with Voltas, Ltd. of India, MSI provided comprehensive design engineering services as well as multiple 300 USGPM Truck Unload Skids and 600 USGPM Truck Load Skids (see photo) complete with SS Truck Fillstand Pantographs. Automatic Tank Gauging, Vehicle Overfill and Continuous Ground Verification Controls, Motor Control Center and Gammon Sump Separators provide the customer with a total system solution for this new Jet Fuel Depot. While owned and operated by the Ministry of Defense of Qatar, this facility is intended to service the aviation fuel needs of both Qatari and U.S. forces.

    Honey, I Shrunk the MARS!
    MSI Refueling Skid System

    For Jet Fuel storage tanks of 1,000 to 6,000 USG capacity, MSI has developed a simple but elegant solution that addresses the need to filter inbound and outbound fuel as well as periodic recirculation of stored fuel through filtration to maintain proper fuel quality. Less than tank wagon volumes of fuel are generally delivered by fuel transports with PTO- driven pumps. MSI's innovative MARS RF (Receipt Filter) Module is equipped with Remote Fill Box, 116 USGPM Vertical Filter and Full Port, Stainless Steel Ball Valves & piping. A Red Jacket Submersible or Blackmer Positive Displacement Pump is employed to recirculate fuel through filtration as well as transfer fuel to a local DTP (Direct-to-Plane) or RDS (Remote Dispensing) Module at flowrates from 15 to 50 USGPM. If you are considering a small Jet Fuel Storage Tank, let us show you how we can save you big money on your next installation with our MARS STS (Small Tank Systems)!

    FSII Can Spell Filter Problems.
    Facet Filters

    Fuel System Icing Inhibitor (FSII), also known as DiEGME, can be a big problem when it comes to filtration of aviation fuel regardless of whether your fuel system uses filter/separators or filter/monitors. Recent problems with filter/monitors used in conjunction with FSII have led several major oil companies (ExxonMobil and Chevron Texaco) to prohibit their use with pre-blended fuel. FSII can also disarm coalescers in filter/separators so the switch to filter/separators must be approached with caution. ExxonMobil has directed that filter/separators used with fuel treated with FSII must comply with API 1581, 5th Edition, Category M (not M100). Both Chevron Texaco and ExxonMobil recommend that FSII be added downstream of the filter with an additive injector. Contact Gordon Johnson at msintl@rcn.com for additional details.
