Turbine Running Safety Guidelines and Emergency Procedures Starting, running and emergency procedures for jet powered vehicles can vary greatly from one engine manufacturer to the next, however, the general safety principals outlined herein should be adhered to whenever possible. These safety principles should be considered as an appendix to the current ANDRA safety and emergency procedures and the engine manufacturer’s maintenance manual with regards to temperatures, pressures and rpm limits etc. Engine starting procedures are usually outlined in the engine manufacturer’s maintenance and/or service manuals, however when fitted to a jet dragster, funny car or truck, these procedures can be difficult to follow as the external engine controls, external plumbing and fuel supply systems will be considerably different. Since engine internal configurations of the many engine types will generally be to the manufacturer’s specifications, the engine manufacturer’s rpm, oil pressure and egt limits should still be observed wherever possible. Firefighting safety crew and equipment must be present during all running of jet powered vehicles. All crew must be well versed in the use of firefighting equipment and procedures. Vehicles will be running Jet-A1, Avgas, Kerosene and/or Diesel fuel; a small amount of gasoline/petrol is often used for starting purposes on jet powered vehicles.
Please refer to the latest ANDRA Rulebook for the relevant safety/ emergency requirements in relation to start line and shut-down area procedures. Some vehicles have external starter motor controls and power supply connections operated by a separate crew member while some vehicles are able to be started by the driver from within the cockpit. Operation of the external starting devices shall be performed by suitably trained crew/personnel.
Only starting personnel and/or crew chief is to be near the vehicle during starting and run-up operations. The engine will not be started without the driver in the car, wearing all the required safety apparel and safety harness secured.
Only the persons operating the engine starter are to be beside the vehicle, perpendicular to the axis of the turbine or behind the vehicle during starting and running.
