Aircraft Refuellers


The Aircraft Refuellers are suitable for under-wing and over-wing aircraft refuelling operations. It is usually assembled on a fully equipped three-axle truck chassis, with refuelling being carried out from the side of the driver.


We fabricated 7  aircraft refuellers comprising of 3 x 1000 gallons and 4 x 4000 gallons in 1993 . Of these units, 3 were used in Sembawang Airbase and 2 were used in an airport in Cambodia.

Each system unit differs slightly. While all of the refuellers had both under-wing and over-wing aircraft refuelling capabilities.  Where the bigger ones were supplied with scissor lifts platforms.

In 2016, In 2016 we manufactured and supplied 2 aircraft refuellers and 1 trailer mounted refueller module to our Taiwan aviation customer based in Taiyuan International Airport.

We manufacture chassis-mounted refuellers as per customer specifications with tank capacity ranging from 5,000l to 21,000l, with flow rates ranging from 350l/min to 2,500l/min. Refuellers typically consist of a chassis, tank and fuelling & de-fuelling system.

Our engineers has to develop a performance driven vehicle to meet predetermined needs and comply with very specific regulated requirements. The challenge of driving underneath any kind of aircraft demands a sophisticated set of safety measures based on the reliability of the precision handling of our vehicle.

Many factors need to be considered in the design of an airfield refueller to achieve best refuelling results in any weather of any climate. Tanks could be made of mild steel (internally epoxy coated), stainless steel, or aluminum.  With safety provisions for static grounding cabling, fire extinguishers, fire screen, spark arrestor at the exhaust of the engine, and a brake interlock system on all pressure couplings, stowage, and emergency engine/fuel shut-off.

Based on the flow rate requirement, which normally ranges from 100 LPM to 4000 LPM, the refuelling and de-fuelling module uses internationally proven components such as internal valve, fuel & de-fuel valve, centrifugal pump, pressure control valve, fuel monitor, flow meter, under-wing pressure coupling, aviation hose for deck and hose reel, bottom-loading system with high level sensor, electrical deadman handle, and liquid fifth wheel for semi-trailer type refueller.
