English term or phrase:Selective nozzle spout
Hola a todos:
Estoy traduciendo un formulario para solicitar carburante para repostar aviones.
En una de las secciones (reasons for use) aparece la siguiente opción:
- Selective nozzle spout cannot be used
Entiendo lo que quiere decir, pero desconozco la terminología correcta en español. Les agradecería si pudieran ayudarme con este término.
Explanation: Es el caño para el boquerel para el combustible de aeronaves a reacción o jet.
Mientras que el Jet A tiene el punto a -40ºC, el Jet A1 lo lleva hasta los -47ºC ... conocerán para sus motores de pistón y alternativos, el AVGAS 100LL. ... es el combustible “universal” para la mayoría de aeronaves de pistón y ... http://surcandoloscielos.es/blog/combustible-y-repostaje/

Also referred to as a “selective nozzle spout,” “jet nozzle,” and “jet fuel spout” in Imperial Oil manuals.
The angle and location of the fuel filler openings on some aircraft make the use of the Jet-A1 flared spout impractical. Consequently, many Jet-A1 fuel trucks and stationary fuelling cabinets are equipped with a reduced-diameter spout that can be temporarily installed in place of the Jet-A1 flared spout.
A review of the TSB database revealed that, since 1980, there have been 21 recorded instances in which jet fuel was delivered to an aircraft instead of AVGAS, 10 of which have occurred since 2000 (Appendix B). Of those 21 events, 17 occurred at an aerodrome, 3 were related to refuelling from drums, and 1 occurred at a float-plane dock. These misfuelling events resulted in 8 crashes and 11 forced landings. There was 1 fatality and a number of injuries, some severe. In 2 cases, the misfuelling was detected prior to departure of the aircraft.
Findings as to causes and contributing factors
Delivery of the incorrect type of aircraft fuel caused loss of power from both engines, necessitating a forced landing.
The fuelling operation was not adequately supervised by the flight crew.
A reduced-diameter spout was installed that enabled the delivery of Jet-A1 fuel into the AVGAS fuel filler openings.
The fuel slip indicating that Jet-A1 fuel had been delivered was not available for scrutiny by the crew.
