in the right wing surge tank drains to main tank 2. If the fuel
level is high enough in the surge tank, fuel drains out of the
vent scoop.
Component Location
Main tank 1 is in the wing box of the left wing. Main tank 2 is
in the wing box of the right wing. The center tank is in the
fuselage, and the left and right wing inboard sections.
Capacity
The capacity of main tank 1 is 8630 lb (3915 kg). The capacity
of main tank 2 is 8630 lb (3915 kg). The capacity of the center
tank is 28,830 lb (13,066 kg).
Fuel tank capacity does not include surge tanks.
The capacity of each surge tank is 235 lb (107 kg).

PRESSURE REFUELING SYSTEM -- GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Three fuel quantity indicators show fuel quantity in each tank.
Main Tank and Center Tank Refueling Control
Use the preselect switch on the indicator to set the quantity
of fuel to put into the tanks. The main tanks and center tanks
get fuel through the refueling shutoff valves.
Each valve has a solenoid that energizes when the refueling
control switch is moved to the OPEN position.
The valve opens if refueling pressure is available at the fueling
station. Fuel then goes to the tanks.
Each refueling shutoff valve closes when its solenoid de-
energizes. The solenoid de-energizes when the tank is full and
the float switch opens. It also deenergizes when the quantity
of fuel in the tank is equal to the preselected value. Then the
indicator removes power. Power is removed when the control
switch is moved to the CLOSE position.
Refueling Fuel Flow
When the refueling valves are open, fuel flows to the tanks.
Fuel flow to tank 2 is through a diffuser. The diffuser makes
sure that tank 2 refuels at the same rate as tank 1.

PRESSURE REFUELING SYSTEM -- REFUELING FLOAT SWITCHES
General
The refueling float switches prevent over-fueling the fuel
tanks.
The refueling float switches remove power to the refueling
valves when the fuel level in the tank is full.
The refueling float switches have a float that is in a cylindrical
container. When the tank is less than full, the float switch lets
power go to the refueling valve solenoid. When the tank is
full, the refueling float switch removes power to the refueling
valve solenoid.
Training Information Point
The conduit contains a polymer protective liner material to
eliminate wire damage from chafing. The liner for the main
tank float switch conduit comes installed with the conduit.
The float switch and the conduit are a single LRU and must be
removed and installed together.
For the center tank float switch, the float switch can be
replaced separately from the conduit. A new liner has to be
installed whenever the conduit or the float switch is replaced.

tank. Access to the water scavenge ejector pump in the left
side of the center tank is through the left wheel well. Access
to the water scavenge pump in the right side of the center
tank is through the right wheel well.
Functional Description
The water scavenge ejector pumps operate when the boost
pumps are on. The water scavenge ejector pump uses fuel
flow from the boost pumps as motive flow. The motive flow
through the water scavenge ejector pump causes a suction.
This suction takes water and fuel from the low points in each
tank. The water and fuel that comes out of the water
scavenge ejector pump goes to the boost pump inlets.

ENGINE FUEL FEED SYSTEM -- OPERATION
Center Tank Engine Fuel Supply tank 2 supply fuel to the engines. The engines can only get
suction fuel from main tanks.
Usually all pump switches are in the ON position at the start of
a flight. The center tank supplies fuel to the engines. When the
center tank is empty, you turn the center tank boost pumps to
the OFF position.
If the center tank boost pump switches are on, and there is low
boost pump pressure for 15 seconds, the boost pumps go off
automatically to prevent overheat damage.
Main Tank Fuel Supply
When the center tank is empty, and the main tank boost
pumps are on, pressurized fuel goes from the main tanks to the
engines.
Crossfeed Operation
Fuel goes through the crossfeed valve to correct an imbalance
between main tank 1 and main tank 2.
To correct an imbalance, you open the crossfeed valve and put
the boost pumps off in the fuel tank that has less fuel.
Suction Operation
Suction supply from a main tank occurs when all the boost
pumps for that tank are off, and the crossfeed valve is closed.
The bypass valve in main tank 1 and/or main tank 2 opens. This
lets main tank 1 and/or main

FQIS -- TANK UNITS AND COMPENSATORS
General
There are 32 tank units in the fuel tanks. There are 12 tank
units in main tank 1, and 12 tank units in main tank 2. There
are 8 tank units in the center tank.
There is one compensator in each tank.
Tank Units
The tank units measure fuel volume. The fuel quantity
processor sends a low impedance excitation signal to the tank
units. The tank units send back a one high impedance signal to
the processor. This high impedance return signal is in
proportion to fuel volume for the tank.
Compensators
The compensators correct for differences in fuel properties.
The fuel quantity processor sends a low impedance signal to
each compensator. The compensators send back a high
impedance signal to the processor. This high impedance return
signal is in proportion to the dielectric of the fuel. The
dielectric of fuel is proportional to fuel density.
Each compensator is in the low point of its fuel tank. For most
operations, the compensator is below the fuel level. The high
impedance return signal from each compensator changes only
for differences in fuel dielectric.

FQIS -- FUEL QUANTITY INDICATIONS
General The fuel quantity display shows in a digital format. A totalizer
display shows the total quantity of all 3 airplane fuel tanks.
Main fuel tank and center tank quantity show on the primary
engine display and the refuel panel.
Fuel quantity shows in pounds or kilograms.
Fuel Configuration Messages
Fuel configuration messages show on the CDS. These
messages show a problem with the configuration of the fuel
system.
The LOW message shows that main tank 1 or main tank 2 has
less than 2000 lb (907 kg) of fuel. This message goes away
when there is more than 2500 lb (1133 kg) of fuel in that
tank. There must be a low fuel condition for 30 seconds
before the LOW message shows.
The IMBAL message shows when there is a difference of 1000
lb (453 kg) between main tank 1 and main tank 2. The
message goes away when the difference between tanks is 200
lb (90 kg) or less. The IMBAL message only shows when the
airplane is in the air. The IMBAL message does not show when
the LOW message shows. There must be an imbalance
condition for 60 seconds before the IMBAL message shows.
The CONFIG message shows for these conditions:
- 1600 lb (725 kg) or more of fuel in the center tank
- 2 center tank boost pumps are off
- One or the other engine is in operation.

FUEL MEASURING STICK - MEASURING STICKS
General
The fuel measuring sticks are used to manually measure fuel
quantity.
There are six measuring sticks in main tank 1 and main tank 2.
Each fuel measuring stick is on a fuel tank access door. The
fuel measuring sticks are numbered 3 through 8, from inboard
to outboard on each tank.
There are four fuel tank measuring sticks in the center tank.
Two fuel tank measuring sticks are on fuel tank access panels
and two are on the wing skin. The center tank fuel measuring
sticks are numbered 1 and 2, from inboard to outboard on the
left and right side of the tank.
The inner sticks have graduation marks that show fuel height
in linear units.
There are two inclinometers, one for airplane pitch, one for
airplane roll, in the main landing gear wheel well.
There is also plumb bob attachment and a leveling scale in the
right main wheel well. Use the plumb bob and leveling scale
to determine airplane pitch and roll.
Use fuel height linear unit measurement and airplane pitch
and roll to measure fuel quantity. Chapter 12 of the AMM Part
II or the 737 Fuel Measuring Stick Manual, has conversion
tables that change linear units, fuel height, and airplane pitch
and roll into fuel quantity.
