The Fuelchief SuperVault® has been shortlisted for Environmental Performance at the Global Tank Storage Awards 2020
When choosing an aviation fuel tank, it’s important to select a tank that caters to aviation industry requirements. At Fuelchief, we tailor our aviation fuel tanks in the following ways:
Aviation fuel tanks are high-spec tanks due to the high emphasis on safety. We offer a number of tank options suitable for aviation fuel, which are all bunded (double-skinned).
At Fuelchief, we’ve worked with a number of airports on their above-ground fuel tank solutions. As a guide on aviation fuel tank sizes, we’ve manufactured a 10,000-litre tank for a small aerodrome, and four 80,000-litre tanks for a regional airport. We regularly manufacture fuel tanks for several global oil brands, large mining operators, transport operators, building developers and fuel outlets
IMPORTANT NOTE: Insist on 95-03 as it is the only fire-rated tank in the world that can be repaired and re-used after the fire or event has occurred. The 95-03, 4-hour fire test involves an additional 2-hour fire exposure test using the same, fully assembled test tank for all tests.
In the event of a fire, the integrity of any tank certified to UL-2085 (2 hour) or SWRI 93-01 (4 hour) will be deemed to have been compromised and will not be compliant after the event.
A 30-year warranty is offered, providing the fire tank is installed and maintained in accordance with the industry standards, including de-watering of the primary tank.
All aviation SuperVaults below include internal coating, two manways, stainless steel penetrations, flanges, floating suction. Fittings for: fill, tank gauging, thermal relief, water draw off, sample return, high level switch, dip and stainless steel cap, jiggle wire port, interstitial tube.
