All the updates on JIG's work to phase out SAP-based Filter Monitor technology from jet-fuel handling applications. Starting with Bulletin 105 to the latest Field Trial updates.
A Joint Industry Field Trial programme was started by JIG in cooperation with IATA and A4A to conduct operational trials on new filtration technology developed by the manufacturers and qualified to a relevant EI (Energy Institute) Specification. The Field Trials have been running since July 2019 and have so far resulted in the adoption of Electronic Water Sensor and Dirt Defence filter combinations for into-plane use. (Bulletin 130). All JIG and Joint Industry Project Lead (JIPL) communications around the fineld trials can be found below.
JIG has set a date of July 2023 to no longer reference EI1583 qualified Filter Monitors in the Standards (Bulletin 132).
Field Trials are continuing and this page will be regularly updated on progress. All of our filtration-related resources can be found in the lists at the foot of this page.
