BETA Fueling Systems Refuelling Equipment for the Aviation Industry

Refueller truck

BETA supplies the commercial airline industry, major oil companies and US and foreign allied militaries with safe and reliable refuelling equipment.

The company provides aviation / aircraft refuellers, hydrant dispensers and carts, refuelling modules and trucks, aluminium vessels and filtration systems, as well as mobile and emergency fuelling solutions.

Hydrant carts for the aviation industry

BETA’s wide-body and stationary hydrant carts optimise fuelling operations some of the highest dispensing flow rates in the industry.

The modular design elements are shared with other hydrant designs to lower fleet maintenance costs.

These carts fuel an entire range of aircraft while also providing quicker gate turns with fewer operators, no chassis maintenance required, and less aircraft damage.

Features include:

  • Self-propelled cart able to serve multiple gates
  • Hydrostatic drive to minimise maintenance and emissions when compared with hydrant dispensing trucks
  • Stainless-steel tubing for fuel sensing line, offering greater durability compared with synflex
  • Robust boom design minimises leaks and hose replacements associated with jack risers. This also reduces stress on under-wing nozzles and aircraft fuelling manifolds
  • Corrosion-resistant aluminium filtration, eliminating maintenance of internal epoxy coating
  • On-board diagnostics and troubleshooting capability with wireless, remote support
  • Non-proprietary components so replacement parts can be quickly delivered, maximising uptime and fuel efficiency
  • Built on a proven design from more than 30 years of military and commercial applications
  • Made from corrosion-resistant aluminium and stainless-steel to increase service life and reduce maintenance costs

Refuelling Trucks

BETA’s refuelling trucks use advanced technology to help our customers minimise costs, boost operator support, and optimise fleet management. This is accomplished through reducing installation time and maintenance by eliminating terminal boxes and plug-in wiring.

All trucks feature automated electronic controls and multi-function touchscreen displays to decrease operator errors and fuelling time. The modular design enables lower lifetime cost by reusing the fuelling system on a new chassis.

The refuelling trucks also feature automatic on-board diagnostics and troubleshooting alerts, along with automatically generated fuel and safety data reports.

BETA manufactures the following equipment and variations:

  • 10kl, 7kl, 5kl, 40kl, 30kl, 20kl, and custom aviation Jet A-1 refuellers
  • 500gal, 750gal, 1,000gal, 1,200gal, 2kl, 1kl, 5kl AVGAS refuellers
  • Ramp servers

Aluminium vessels and filtration

BETA is an American Society of Steel Engineers (ASME) U-Stamped certified manufacturing facility approved to manufacture and validate filtration vessels for global aviation.

Aluminium and stainless-steel vessels eliminate the risk of internal epoxy damage that commonly occurs in carbon steel vessels.

BETA is the only commercial aviation refuelling vehicle manufacturer certified to develop code-stamped vessels, and carries additional certifications, including R-Stamp for refurbishment and repair in-house or in-field.

The company offers a full range of designs and performance requirements to ensure fuel is clean and dry.

Modules for hydrant dispensers and refuellers

BETA manufactures aviation refuellers and hydrant dispensers modules, which are designed for turnkey integration and are capable of flow rates of up to 600 gallons per minute (GPM) or 2,300 litres per minute (LPM) for modules, and 1,000GPM or 3,800 LPM for dispenser modules.

Advantages of BETA modules include:

  • Automated electronic controls and diagnostics for operational efficiency
  • Fuelling and safety data reports to help optimise fleet management
  • Complete drop-in system
  • Pumping systems to maximise flow rate, and reduce maintenance and fuel costs
