Avoiding the risk of aviation fuel contamination

The number one priority for aviation fuel storage is to avoid contamination. By law any part of the tank that could come into contact with the fuel must be stainless steel so that there is no danger of rust. Our aviation tanks have a 100% stainless steel inner tank and all fittings are also made of stainless steel. This not only meets all safety requirements and is very long lasting, but also gives you complete peace of mind on the operational integrity of the tank overall.

Baffle-free means hassle-free

Some manufacturers use baffles as part of the structural integrity of the tank construction or to keep fuel stable should the tank be moved with fuel inside.  However, with aviation fuel tanks, baffles can act as collection points for water condensation – something best avoided. F.E.S. aviation fuel tanks are made without an interior baffle, ensuring a free drainage floor pan and allowing for the safe removal of water from aviation fuel as part of your daily maintenance program.

A high quality aviation tank manufacturer

F.E.S. aviation fuel tanks are all made to the highest standards of quality in a spotlessly clean, purpose-built manufacturing facility. We are in constant contact with the management team and regularly visit the plant to ensure that our stringent specifications are being upheld. Each tank is inspected regularly during the manufacturing process and is rigorously inspected again both before it leaves the factory and when it arrives at the destination. Nothing is left to chance and we have a total commitment to quality.
