PREPARATION FOR MOVEMENT
The exhaust system will remain hot for some time after engine shut down. Avoid contact with
exhaust system components until they have cooled sufficiently for safe handling. Serious personal
injury may occur from contact with hot metal.
Drain nozzle immediately after disconnecting it from the system. Trapped fuel can cause large
internal pressure that can damage nozzle when the temperature rises.
During recovery, ensure dust caps are installed on couplings immediately after disconnection. This
practice will protect the couplings, and reduce fuel contamination and spills.
This procedure assumes that defueling has been completed. However, small amounts of residual fuel may
remain. Place a shallow container beneath each coupling to catch drainage when coupling is disconnected.
At fueling points, remove the ground rods, drain trapped fuel and stow the nozzles, and return the nozzle kits and ground
rods to the recovery area.
At fueling points, start at end of discharge hose and roll discharge hose toward first fitting. Disconnect unisex couplings
and strap hoses. Continue process until all hoses are rolled and secured. Return discharge hoses to recovery area.
Disconnect suction hoses, strap and return to recovery area.
Return all wyes, tees, elbows and crosses to recovery area.
Disconnect and return recirculation manifold to recovery area.
At each fuel drum, remove the inlet and outlet elbow valves and return valves to recovery area.
At recovery area, sort and stow all fuel handling AAFARS components.
Remove and stow ground cables on liquid fuel filter-separator, pump-engine module and accessory module.
Return auxiliary pump module to recovery area.
Serious injury could occur if heavy equipment is moved/lifted without sufficient personnel to do the
job. Always use sufficient personnel to move or relocate the liquid fuel filter-separator. Use proper
physical lifting procedures or use a suitable lifting device or dolly. Wear safety shoes, gloves, and
other suitable protective clothing.
10. Return liquid fuel filter-separator to recovery area.
11. Remove ground rod at pumping station and return to recovery area.
12. Disconnect and stow electrical cables in accessory module compartment. Install dust caps on connectors. Disconnect
battery connector to preserve charge on battery.
