Fuel Quality

C.D. Hallock transports two types of aviation fuel: Jet-A for use in turbo-fan, turbo-jet and turbo-prop engines; and Avgas for use in reciprocating or piston engines. Our stringent quality assurance program ensures that the fuel we deliver is certified and conforms to ASTM requirements specified for fuel grade, type, and quantity. Each category and grade of fuel requires its own unique procedure for receipt, storage, and distribution. A crucial requirement of a fueling operation is the delivery of the correct type and grade of fuel that is free of contaminants.

At time of delivery and prior to connecting truck discharge hoses, our drivers review fuel delivery documentation and procedures with facility operators to ensure satisfactory fuel receipt. Once the review has been completed, truck unloading hoses and fittings are inspected for deficiencies, pending failures and cleanliness prior to connection to airport facility receiving connections. Prior to fuel testing and unloading of the transport truck, the truck is required to sit for a minimum of ten minutes with the tank internal valves open.

C.D. Hallock is committed to providing efficient cost-effective delivery of bulk aviation fuel.

Emergency Response Plan

C.D. Hallock’s Emergency Response Plan (ERP) addresses the control, containment and collection of fuels during the loading and unloading process. Persons responding to fuel spills, especially Class I and II liquids, are trained in the hazards and properties of those chemicals. We believe that comprehensive training is vital for the safety of our drivers as well as other persons and property in the vicinity of the release. The objective of the ERP is to meet regulatory and client requirements, and to provide guidance to our drivers for the safe collection of fuels accidentally released.

Environmental Management System

C.D. Hallock’s Environmental Management System (EMS) provides a methodology and framework to systemically identify and cost-effectively manage the environmental impact of fuel transport. The EMS addresses environmental management drivers, our approach to environmental management, performance monitoring, communication methods, and resources required for implementation and maintenance.
