Hose Barb Fittings: The JMP Air Trap is available with hose barbs to fit either 1/8” i.d. or 3/16” i.d. tubing sizes. Many combinations of the two are also possible.
Construction: The Air Trap is constructed from aircraft grade aluminum and the finest West Systems Epoxy with a main body that is translucent. It is easy to visually check for system air leaks and overall fuel system performance.
Proper Filling: The fitting with the smaller hole is for the fueling/de-fueling line. Do not allow any air to enter this line when removing the fill line from the fueling station.
Proper Operation: Typical clunk style fuel systems found in model jets do not deliver fuel perfectly, especially when the model fuel tanks are near empty. Some air is normal to see in the Air Trap. An amount of air that would leave the Air Trap half full is not good. Either the main fuel tanks were run very low or there may be a leak upstream in the fuel system. This should be checked out.
Proper Orientation: the horizontal design Air Trap upside down to the bottom of the model control board, you must reverse the “Fuel In” fitting and the “Drain/Fill” hose barb fittings. Drain/Fill must always happen from the lower side of the Air Trap. Just remember that air in the system must be forced up and out during the filling cycle leaving the Air Trap completely full of fuel.
