Aviation Fuel Storage Made Easy

jet fuel storage tanks | The aviation industry required robust tank solutions when it comes to the safe and compliant storage of fuels such as JETA-1 AVGAS, and specialised chemical, methanol and additive based lubricants.

UNITY Aviation fuel tanks address these challenges in a few ways:

  1. A sloping 50:1 floor on the internal stainless tank ensures water build-up can be drained easily and regularly as part of a maintenance program.
  2. Baffle free means hassle free. UNITY AVIATION TANKS are made without an interior baffle. This removes the danger of water and equipment being caught within the internal design of the tank. Without a baffle, you lower the risks of potential problems in the future.


Our team has years of experience in the safe storage, handling and daily management of fuel within the aviation industry. We always take the time to fully understand your needs as each situation is unique to your requirements.

Stainless steel additive tanks for custom aviation projects

Dangerous liquids can need custom solutions. At Fuelchief we offer a variety of solutions from our standardised range (which we recommend for efficiency and delivery) right through to bespoke products such as our stainless-steel additive tanks.

These are precision welded by hand by our team of experts. Welding stainless steel compared to carbon steel requires both T.I.G welding and M.I.G welding. Each has a special technique, requiring a high-level of skill, however the combination of both guarantees a superior finished product for the client.

Here is our team member Cris who has been working on a client’s stainless steel tank for fuel additive. The are many welding techniques used across the world. The one Cris is using for this particular project is TIG welding. TIG welding is extremely versatile, but is one of the most difficult welding techniques to learn and Fuelchief TIG welders are skilled individuals. Two hands are needed for TIG welding; one hand feeds the rod whilst the other holds a TIG torch. This torch creates the heat and arc, which is used to weld most conventional metals, including aluminum, steel, nickel alloys, copper alloys, cobalt and titanium.
