The Aircraft Refueller is suitable for under-wing and over-wing aircraft refuelling operations. It is assembled on a fully equipped three-axle truck chassis, and can be adapted for left or right-hand traffic, with refuelling being carried out from the driver's side.
STOKOTA manufactures road tankers, trailers and semi-trailers for the transport and delivery of fuels according to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR).
Fuel distribution vehicles for the aviation sector
STOKOTA is an international producer of industrial road vehicles such as aircraft refuellers, hydrant dispensers and industrial cleaners.
The company designs and creates tanks in aluminium, stainless-steel or carbon steel plate to provide fully equipped units. Tanks are automatically welded and tested through radiographic checks on the capacity measurement, pressure test, welded joints and safe loading.
STOKOTA manufactures custom-made solutions to achieve optimal efficiency and ergonomics for the user at a low lifecycle cost.
The majority of the equipment, ranging from the framework to electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic components, is designed and built in-house.
Semi-trailer and rigid aircraft refuellers
STOKOTA offers rigid refuellers with tank capacities from 7,000l to 25,000l, as well as ADR-compliant, fully aluminium tanks with various chassis options.
Tanks are fitted with an underwing and overwing hose reel, and are available with flow capacities from low flow (up to 1,000l/min) through one hose reel, and up 3,800l/min through two deck hoses on a semi-trailer aircraft refueller.
Semi-trailer refuellers feature capacities varying from 35,000l, 40,000l and 45,000l, available in both oval shape and ‘low profile’ or ‘underwing execution’, and a 60,000l and 85,000l version in double D section.
The towing vehicle can be fitted with a complete lifting platform and an enclosed metering and operating cabinet.
All vehicles are fitted with a measuring and monitoring system, which is specifically designed for the refuelling of aircraft and helicopters, and is fully compliant with the ATEX Directive and the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID).
Air-site, or dual air and road-site configurations are available, with single or twin axles, and an optional lifting platform.
Bespoke hydrant dispensers
STOKOTA manufactures hydrant dispensers according to the customer’s specification.
The modular design of the dispensers enables a variety of options, and flow rates can vary up to 4,000l/min.
Hydrant dispensers range from standard high-flow configurations to low-profile executions (height less than 2m), both with high or low-flow levels. The dispensers are equipped with a lifting platform to access the latest generation airplanes such as the A380 or B777.
Ergonomics, safety and advanced technology are key features from STOKOTA’s hydrant dispensers.
The R1D hydrant dispenser features:
- A 4 x 2 chassis
- Flow rate of 3,500l/min through two deck hoses
- Flow rate of 1,000l/min through one hose reel
- 11m intake line (4in hose) with 3m extension pantograph. Optional execution in full pantograph
- Hydraulically powered lifting platform with 4.3m floor height
- 4in deck pantograph or hoses
- 4,000l/min filter or water separator
- Wireless deadman system
- Closed sampling system with pneumatic shell water detector and recovery tank with electronic level sensor
Established in 1963, STOKOTA initially specialised in the manufacture of welded storage tanks. In 1967, the company started producing road tankers, quickly becoming a market leader in the Benelux region.
STOKOTA has successfully built commercial and military aircraft refuellers for the Eastern European market, and a collection of 25 military units for the Belgian Air Force, implementing bespoke designs with the latest technology and a high level of quality.
Suitable for over and under-wing refuelling, Stokota's military aircraft refueller is assembled on a three-axle truck chassis, adapted for left or right hand traffic, and operated from the driver's side.
Semi-trailer refuellers are available in oval-shaped, 'low-profile' or 'under-wing' variants, which feature capacities ranging from 35,000l and 40,000l, or as a 60,000l double-D version.
Stokota's high-flow hydrant dispensers are assembled on a two-axle truck chassis, which can be adapted for left or right-hand driving, and operated on the driver's side. The dispensers provide a nominal flow rate of 3,500l/min through two deck hoses and 1,200l/min through one hose reel.
Stokota successfully delivered three aircraft refuellers for Poland. The order included two semi-trailers with a capacity of 65,000 litres and one rigid of 22,000 litres.
STOKOTA will attend the 2017 Inter Airport Fair from 10 to 13 October 2017 in Munich.
STOKOTA will be exhibiting at the Bi-Annual IATA Aviation Fuel Forum in Hanoi, Vietnam.
