Section III. OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
2-6. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE. Figure 2-1 shows a typical layout of the FSSP. It should be used only
as a guide since terrain features of the site and the specific application will dictate the final configuration. Plan the most
efficient layout for the selected site, making the best use of natural cover and level terrain. Plan for good access for
vehicles loading and unloading fuel.
Make sure all dust caps and plugs remain in place on components, hoses, and
fittings until they are connected into the system.
For all components having cam lock type caps and plugs, attach protective
plugs from one component into the protective caps of the other mating
component to protect loose caps, plugs, and gaskets when components are in
a. Position major components of the FSSP first
(1) Place the selected combination of three 3,000, 10,000, and 20,000 gallon collapsible fuel tanks (1) in
accordance with instructions contained in the fuel tank operator manual.
(2) Place the two 350 GPM pump assemblies (10) and (19) as shown in Figure 2-1 and in accordance with
instructions contained in the applicable operator's manual for the pump assemblies.
(3) Place the 350 GPM filter/separator units (24) and (25) as shown in Figure 2-1 and in accordance with
instructions contained in the applicable operator's manual for the filter/separator units.
b. Install two 4.00" x 10' hoses (2) onto fuel tank (1) and manifold assembly (3).
c. Install a maximum of six 4.00" x 10' hoses (4) (when using 20,000 gallon tanks) or a minimum of two 4.00" x 10'
hoses (4) (when using 3,000 gallon tanks) to manifold assemblies (3).
d. Repeat steps a. and b. for other fuel tanks.
e. Install three 4.00" x 10' hoses (5) between manifold assemblies (3) and valve assembly (6). Repeat for other two
f. Install a maximum of six 4.00" x 10' hoses (7) (when using 20,000 gallon tanks) or a minimum of two 4.00" x 10'
hoses (7) (when using 3,000 gallon tanks) between three valve assemblies (6).
g. Install valve assembly (8) and two 4.00" x 10' hose assemblies (9) to valve assembly (6) and to discharge port of
