In applying these supply units, the pressures indicated are at
the pump outlet. You must also consider line losses.
All pumps relying on atmospheric pressure to push the fuel
oil into them are subject to cavitation. As fuel viscosity (thick-
ness) increases, the tendency for cavitation becomes
greater. Therefore, it is best to mount the pump at the base
of the tank and to use the largest diameter, shortest length,
and straightest inlet possible. A large diameter inlet pipe or
hose necked down at the pump is preferable to a longer
length of smaller diameter pipe because the fuel tends to
adhere to the inside of the pipe.
When initially starting a unit, it is desirable and sometimes
necessary to have a vent valve or plug on the pressure side
of the pump to facilitate its priming.
