Military Petroleum Pipeline Systems (FM ) : Department of the Army :

The kit is made up of two large suitcases and two pipe stands. The kit is made up of two large suitcases and two pipe stands. Construction of a hydraulic gradient triangle Figure Suspension- bridge kit area must be large enough about yards by 50 yards to store pipeline components and allow for loading operations. The task organization of the engineer units for pipeline construction is based on mission, enemy, terrain, troops, and time available METT-T.

These valves are used in pipelines to cut off, control, and direct the fuel flow in the line. A plug valve opens or closes with a quarter turn of the plug.

It contains all of the tools required for operator maintenance and repair of the standard pumping units and the 4- 6- and 8-inch pumping-station manifolds. However, it was developed primarily for engineer commanders and staffs to design petroleum pipeline distribution systems.


Topographic units have detailed topographic information that may help personnel evaluate an area and select the best route. Figure shows that diesel at normal atmospheric pressure The construction staging area receives, accounts for, and issues construction materials. Location of Pumping Stations. dm

Pit-leak clamp Figure The unit has limited, independent capabilities to construct pipeline systems. This set consists of pumps, gate valves, check- valve launchers, receivers, strainers, light sets, and pump shelters needed to construct a standard, mainline pumping station.

The hydraulic design considers the friction head loss in the pipe and changes in elevation of the pipeline when it operates at mf design capacity. The pipeline profile has the following scale: If a problem is anticipated and material is available, using larger pipe to reduce friction loss will save time and work; you will not have to lay the line twice.

On flat terrain with limited obstacles, a highly trained crew can lay up to 2 miles per day. The following problem and solution shows how to construct a typical hydraulic gradient: However, the suction pressure 5-428 the relocated station cannot fall below 20 psi. This pressure is 20 psi at normal elevations and temperatures.

Steps in constructing a bypass line B Figure B-l 8. See Table page for dimensions and safe working pressures for standard pipe supplied in pipeline assemblies. Tanker-truck receipt-manifold layout Figure Each of the military services has service control points that coordinate with DFSC on petroleum logistics matters.


Theoretical suction-lift values for military fuels 2 Flow Velocity. See the manufacturer’s manual for operation and maintenance for each pump.

FM Chptr 2 Equipment

Specialized equipment, assigned to the pipeline support company, is required for handling, placing, and installing valves, pumps, and pipeline anchors. Culvert pipes come in inch-long sections that are 12, 18, and 24 inches in diameter. The availability of fuel depends on the location of the TO. This valve is a diaphragm-activated, spring-loaded fn.

In the field, you cannot hammer or sway back into shape any fn that are dented or bent out-of-round. Gate valve, 1 each at 4. Continue moving the scale along the true hydraulic gradient hypotenuse, and mark the profile at the point at which the bottom edge of the scale again passes through the profile P2. The valve has a hinged disk or clapper that the fuel pushes when the flow is in the correct direction. Kinematic viscosities for common military fuels C-6 Figure C
