Above-ground storage tanks for handling jet fuels
AMA’s above-ground storage tanks (ASTs) are available in various capacities up to 100,000l.
Depending on the required fuel depot capacity, the storage tanks can be adapted for in-parallel, standalone and / or skid-mounted configuration.
The AST main technical characteristics include:
- Single or double-wall type with inner shell in epoxy-coated carbon or stainless-steel
- Floating suction
- Overfill prevention valve and sensors
- Leak detection systems
- Low-point sump with drain line
- Inspection hatch
- Normal and emergency vent on request
- Stainless-steel piping
- Hot-dip galvanised handrail, stairwell and walkway
Skid-mounted loading and unloading systems
AMA’s LUS loading-unloading system is a consolidated unit designed to transfer aviation fuel into holding and / or transport tanks.
The LUS’s general design includes separate lines for fuel unloading and loading, each fitted with a self-priming pump, filter water separator and accessories. The unit is configurable for aircraft refuelling.
The EExd control system can include hardwired relay logic in order to guarantee the correct valve opening sequence for each operation.
Optional features that can be added to the unit include test rig and in-line closed sampling circuits, relaxation chambers and refueller / bridger bonding verification units.
Aircraft refuelling cabinet
AMA’s aircraft refuelling cabinets (ARCs) are specifically designed in accordance with the client’s requirements to safely dispense dry and clean aviation fuel into an aircraft. The system flow rate varies from 120l/min to 800l/min.
The ARCs are available in different configurations, including fixed installation, scissor elevator-mounted and offshore set-up.
Cart-mounted transfer-refuelling pumps
AMA’s mobile aviation fuel transfer (AFT), fuel transfer pump (FTP) and portable refuelling pump (PRP) systems facilitate fuel handling operations where conventional systems are not available, for rapid deployment and/or temporary projects.
Available as trailer and cart-mounted models, they provide user-friendly, simple-to-operate, cost-effective machinery that ensures the highest standards of safety and reliability.
