The Cla-Val 347GF Nozzle is designed per SAE AS5877 and is constructed entirely of aluminum and stainless steel, with fuel resistant Nitrile, Acetal and Polyurethane seals. All aluminum surfaces are anodized or coated to prevent corrosion. No copper, zinc, or alloys thereof are used in construction. The 347GF Nozzle connects to an aircraft “single point adapter” conforming to specification MS24484.
The Cla-Val 347GF Nozzle is designed to maximize safe refueling operations. An internal interlock system, fully contained within the nozzle, prevents it from being opened when not connected to an aircraft adapter. In addition, when connected to an aircraft adapter, the 347GF Nozzle cannot be removed until the operating lever is first rotated to the fully closed position. A spring loaded safety lock prevents the nozzle from being connected to an aircraft adapter in an unsafe or incomplete manner.
The Cla-Val 347GF Nozzle is also designed to simplify refueling operations. This lightweight design reduces the physical stresses involved in connecting the Nozzle to the aircraft by featuring a six slot connection head, making it much easier to connect to a three-lug aircraft single point adapter. The connection head features high strength, hardened Stainless Steel components to assure superior durability to withstand the toughest, most abusive environments. Reduced flow resistance was a focus throughout the design of the nozzle and all related components and accessories so that pressure drop would be minimal, thus reducing refueling times.
The Cla-Val Model 347GF Aviation Fueling Nozzle can be equipped with a variety of options to meet specific user requirements, a few of which are listed below:
• Various handle choices: Standard, Long, Standard Handle with 7˚ or 15˚ Bend
• Wide range of pressure options for Hose End Regulator
• Variety of thread types for Standard and Dry Break Quick Disconnects
• Multiple size options for strainers.
The nozzle can also be supplied with add-on accessories such as the D-3 Swivel Inlet for maximum fueling flexibility and the 349GF Strainer Ball Valve to prevent fuel spills during strainer inspection.
