3 Airbus ACT functional schematic. This is a bladder tank assembly with provision for easy installation of plumbing and electrical connections to integrate into the aircraft the refuel, defuel, transfer and quantity indication functions for the added tank. In operation, the bladder fuel contents are transferred into the center tank using redundant suction pumps mounted in the center tank. An alternative transfer means where cabin air pressure provides the primary transfer means is also used in some applications Fuel can also be stored inside the horizontal stabilizer.

Vapor pressure is a key factor in determining the limiting operational altitude for a given fuel (assuming an open vent system) since fuel vaporization (high evaporation rates and ultimately boiling) can occur at high altitudes, particularly with wide-cut fuels. For this reason, one critical certiļ¬cation test involves a maximum rate of climb with hot fuel in the tanks to identify or quantify any such limitations. In military aircraft with very high altitude ceilings a closed vent system is employed in order to maintain an adequate margin between tank ullage pressure and the fuel vapor pressure during operation at very high altitudes.
