[CLARIFIER] CDFX Update – Field Trials and DDF Project Status

Please find attached below the latest Clarifier newsletter from Parker Velcon. I believe there has been a lot of interest in the development of Filter Monitor replacements, so this newsletter will answer some of your questions. Here are some highlights from the newsletter:
  1. Preliminary Field Trials of Parker Velcon’s CDFX water barrier filter have commenced.
  2. The CDFX is currently the only alternative technology capable of removing both dirt and water.
  3. Parker Velcon will continue to supply CDF monitors to its customers in line with industry guidelines.
  4. Parker Velcon has stopped developing its own DDF as its own tests have shown

Update on EI 1583 7th Edition Filter Monitors

Recently, the Energy Institute (“EI”) confirmed that it will withdraw specification EI-1583 no later than December 31, 2020. However, as detailed in the attached May 2020 IATA, JIG and A4A Bulletin (“Bulletin”), EI-1583 7th edition filter monitors will remain listed in ATA103 and JIG standards. EI has also stated that existing qualifications for such filter monitors will remain valid even after the specification is withdrawn, provided that no changes are made to the design, materials, or construction. Accordingly, Parker Velcon will continue to supply previously qualified 7th edition filter monitors until such time as our barrier filter technology completes Joint

Joint Industrial Announcement on Monitors

The attached announcement from IATA, JIG & A4A provides an update on the current status of the ongoing field trials of ALL new alternative technologies for Filter Monitors.

In summary:
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has caused significant disruption to field trials and will not be able to be completed by previously set datelines. The originally proposed industry roadmap cannot, therefore, be met.
  • The Energy Institute (EI), has confirmed that the EI 1583 specification will be withdrawn at the end of 2020. However, due to the current unavailability of a suitable drop-in replacement for monitors, JIG & ATA103 standards will continue to

SafeEntry Check-In for all Visitors

The Singapore Government has introduced the SafeEntry digital system for contact tracing purposes.

The system – which is compulsory for workplaces – is part of broader safe management practices and technologies that individuals and businesses must use so that normal activities can resume gradually and safely.

As such, all visitors to Haneflex are required to scan the QR code below (which can also be found at our building entrance) before entering the building. Alternatively, you can also got to haneflex.com/safeentry to check-in as well.

Parker Velcon Clarifier – CDFX Updates!

Download the latest issue of the Velcon Clarifier which clears up some questions you may have of Parker Velcon’s new CDF-X water barrier filters which are designed to directly replace 2″ Filter Monitor without the need for water sensors.

 

The CDF-X will be undergoing field trials so I will keep you updated on this exciting development! Unlike Dirt Defence Filters, the CDF-X removes both Particulates AND Water for greater peace of mind, and it does not require installing costly water sensors for it to work.

Guidance for managing operations as part of COVID-19 pandemic response

The novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) global pandemic is causing unprecedented disruption to aviation operations. JIG and A4A is issuing the following guidance to users of JIG & ATA103 respectively. Where flight reductions and/or mandatory quarantines warrant a reduction in fuel operations, the following guidelines may be used :

COVID-19 Preventive Measures

As part of our corporate responsibility to minimise the spread of COVID-19 as well as for the health and safety of our staff and customers, Haneflex will be adopting a work-from-home policy for staff that are able to. Apart from that, we are still business as usual, however, we seek your understanding that our responses may be a little delayed. Our contact details remain unchanged.

 

Likewise, we are also experiencing delivery delays as well for import shipments coming from overseas due to the dramatic cut in the number of flights available as well as the limited production capacities from …

Advance Notice of Change to JIG Standards for Lanyard Operated Hydrant Valve Pilots

In recent years, JIG has been made aware of a number of incidents that occurred when hydrant pit couplers were struck by aircraft ground servicing vehicles such as baggage tractors, high loaders, or conveyor belts. In most of these incidents, the coupler was struck by vehicles during fuel flow for aircraft fuelling resulting in spillage and in some cases fuel release under pressure (forming a geyser such as the one shown) with spillage of a few thousand litres.

What appears to be a common characteristic in all of these recent incidents is that the hydrant pit couplers and valves did …

Emcee DEF Contamination in FSII Test Kits

Due to recent reports of several incidents where Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) was mistaken for Fuel System Icing Inhibitor (FSII) and pre-mixed with Jet Fuel, it resulted in potentially catastrophic events. See the report here : Aircraft DEF Contamination Working Group Report-FINAL

If your operation works with FSII, Emcee has developed a quick test kit that can determine if FSII is free of DEF prior to the addition of FSII to aviation fuel. See the Test Procedure here : DEF in FSII Test rev 1

Feel free to contact us if you are interested to find out more.…
