Why use fuel bladders – flexible fuel tank ?
Hydrocarbon HC fuel bladders offer a storage solution:
- fuel efficiency.
Flexible fuel tank provides optimum protection for stored products. They have a shape of berlingot. The collapsible fuel tank is easy to transport and install thanks to their compactness and lightness.
Indeed, by their design, the stored products are not in contact with air since the wall of the fuel bladder always sticks to the liquid contained. This prevents any evaporation and avoids the risk of explosion due to the formation of gas. Finally, to avoid contamination of the fuel contained in certain applications, an inert barrier film is placed inside the flexible fuel.
The HC fuel bladders provide storage for the :
- jet fuel,
- chemical products…
They are used in the agri-food, humanitarian, military, industrial, public works, etc. sectors.
Case of use of fuel bladders
- Storage of fuel for public works and itinerant construction sites
- Fuel storage on a life basis
Technical characteristics of fuel bladders
We manufacture collapsible fuel bladders in elastomer-coated fabric. We vulcanize them in one operation (“seamless” process) in a homogeneous way. The textile support provides mechanical resistance. The coating and the manufacturing technique provide the chemical properties and the watertightness. The choice of material depends on the liquid stored in order to guarantee the conservation of the chemical or biological aspects of the liquid.
- Elbowed filling/emptying base equipped with a 1/4 turn valve and a symmetrical DN50 guillemin coupling ½ in aluminium (two from 30 m3).
- Subbase equipped with a degassing valve.
- a repair kit.
Musthane makes flexible fuel bladders to measure according to your specifications.
We recommend that you read the precautions for use before using flexible tanks
