Aircraft Ground Service Pits

Design To:

Provide aircraft with 400Hz electrical service used to power the aircraft on the ramp. Shown with receptacles.

Other applications include fuel hydrant, fuel isolation, combination fuel high point vent/low point drain, water service, air start, preconditioned air, surge suppressor and sump. In addition the Model 1463FM pit can be used for maintenance and vault access.

Pit Shell:

The Model 1463FM pit shell is a one piece molded GRP unit composed of 30% high quality glass fiber and 70% polyester resin. The shell wall is nominally one-quarter (0.25) inches (6.4 mm) thick. The inside dimensions of the shell are 23.5 inches (600 mm) diameter by 38 inches (965 mm) deep. The shell interior is coated with a resin-rich gel coat having a white pigment to provide a bright clean environment and appearance.

Pit Cover:

The Model 1463FM pit cover is a two piece, non-skid, non-sparking assembly consisting of one stationary outer ring and an inner access cover. The inner cover can be opened a full 180 degrees with a 25lb (11.4 Kg) single hand lift on a non-weight bearing hinge. When open an 18 inch (460 mm) diameter opening is exposed. Each cover is manufactured from a high strength aluminum-zinc alloy. Covers conform to Federal Specification QQ-A-601F alloy 712.0 (formerly 40E).

Load Testing and Quality Assurance:

Each cover is guaranteed to withstand a dual 200,000 lb (90720 Kg) load applied over 200 square inches (1290 cm²) tire footprint areas placed anywhere on the cover (1000 psi (70.3 Kg/cm²) rating). This represents a 4:1 safety factor. All covers are proof load tested and evaluated in accordance with the United States Military Standard MIL-STD-105 “Sampling Procedures and Tables for Inspection Attributes”.

Available Depths:

18, 30, 52, 60 and 72 inches (460, 760,1320, 1525 and 1830 mm). Other depths are available on special order.
