Controls and instrumentation - Fuel temperature and pressure

want to read about : Controls and instrumentation - Oil temperature and pressure

Fuel temperature and pressure
41. The  temperature  and  pressure  of  the  low pressure fuel supply are electrically transmitted to their respective indicators and these show if the low pressure system is providing an adequate supply of fuel without cavitation and at a temperature to suit the operating conditions.  The fuel temperature and pressure  indicators  are  similar  to  those  for temperature and pressure indication.
42. On some engines, a fuel differential pressure switch, fitted to the low pressure fuel filter, senses the pressure difference across the filter element.  The switch is connected to a warning lamp that provides indication of partial filter blockage, with the possibility of fuel starvation.
