There are two independent stripping systems in each JP-5 pump room. One system uses motor-driven pumps and is interconnected with all JP-5 tanks (both storage and service). One system uses motor-driven pumps and is interconnected with all JP-5 tanks (both storage and service). Isolating stripping operations between storage and service tanks is accomplished with the installation of a spectacle flange and/or a locked-shut double valve isolation. The motor-driven stripping system (fig. 2-9 to 2-11) consists of two low-capacity pumps, manifolds, and associated piping and valves. It is designed to perform the following functions: 1. Remove settled water and solids from the bottom of the JP-5 storage tanks (during normal stripping operations). 2. Remove the last 24 inches of usable fuel remaining in the storage tanks after the transfer pumps lose suction (when consolidating fuel or before ballasting a storage tank). 3. Remove the remaining seawater left in the storage tanks by the main drainage eductors (after tank cleaning operations or deballasting a storage tank). 4. Remove the remaining 24 inches of JP-5 from the service tanks (before cleaning or for off-loading). 5. Remove the wash water from the JP-5 service tanks (after a cleaning operation). 6. Remove water from the purifier sump tank. The storage-tank stripping tailpipe extends from 1 1/2 inches off the tank bottom and runs to the single-valved stripping manifold.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
