Unity Fuel Solutions’ Aviation fuel storage tanks are a self-contained aboveground fuel storage tank and fuel management solution for aviation fuel – from 264 to 28,372 gallons.
If you’re involved in the aviation industry you understand that the cleanliness and quality of aviation fuel is vital to the safety of the aircraft, passengers and crew.
It is vital to store aviation fuel only in specialists tanks specifically designed for Aviation Gasoline (AVGAS) or Turbine Fuel / Jet Fuel (Jet A1). That is why we designed and developed our aboveground double wall aviation fuel storage tanks range.
A speciality product built for the airline industry.
AVIATION FUEL STORAGE REGULATIONS
In the United States, if you store over 250 US gallons of fuel (aboveground) for commercial purposes you must ensure it is in a storage vessel that is double-walled. This goes for storing aviation fuel in any location, from commercial airfields to private airstrips.
Some states may allow a single skin storage tank but that must be contained within a self-contained bunded (upstand) construction for spillage containment.
Bunded areas should be sized to hold 110% of the capacity of the largest storage tank and are traditionally constructed from concrete or masonry adding to project costs and build times.
UNITY AVIATION FUEL TANKS REMOVE THE NEED FOR TRADITIONAL BUND WALL CONSTRUCTION AND CONTAINMENT
Our AVIATION series aboveground fuel tanks are manufactured using a double-walled construction, essentially a tank within a tank.
This integral secondary containment system creates an internal self-bunded solution and ensures traditional bund wall containment areas are no longer required.
AVIATION Double-Walled Tank = 100% Stainless Steel Primary Tank + 10% interstitial space + Secondary Mild Steel Outer Tank which equates to a bunded area of 110% of the storage tanks capacity. This complies with all secondary containment requirements for aboveground storage tanks.
