Towable fuel tank
Why use towable fuel tank?
These towable fuel tanks are at the same time :
- air droppable
They are used for logistical support during interventions in external operations. They are used to transport fuel in the hold of airplanes or helicopters, or even under slings. These flexible tanks are air-droppable from an aircraft up to 30 feet. They can be towed while driving behind a vehicle. They can also used to transport water or other liquids.
Air transportable flexible tanks are shaped like a drum.
They are emptied either by :
- use of a motor pump unit.
Case of use of towable fuel tank
- Supplying water or fuel to remote or inaccessible locations
- Basic life supply
Technical characteristics of air-droppable flexible tanks
We manufacture air droppable flexible tanks made of rubber-coated technical textiles. We choose the material according to the content (water, fuel…). The objective is to keep the characteristics of the stored liquids.
Towable tanks are resistant to the atmospheric and climatic conditions of the countries :
They are assembled by vulcanization in a homogeneous way in one operation (manufacturing process “seamless”).
Standard capacities are 200l, 1000l and 1900l.
The towable flexible tanks have the following accessories:
- Easily accessible filling and emptying port. It is in the center of one of the tank flanges. It is equipped with a quick coupling (DN 50) minimum.
- Flow and pressure control device
- Flanges for slinging, lashing and towing behind a vehicle
- Slinging system for handling the filled tank
- Tie-down system on an aircraft cargo hold or truck bed
