Aero Sekur Showcases Flexible Fuel Tanks at Farnborough

July 10, 2014 - PRLog -- Aero Sekur presents expertise in flexible fuel tanks at Farnborough International Air Show. An advanced multi-layer construction for the company’s crashworthy, self-sealing tanks offers a number of advantages over metal designs: fatigue / weld failure are avoided, complex shapes can be produced and maximum use is made of available space.

As part of Aero Sekur’s focus on providing integrated safety systems for aerospace and defence, the company’s tanks benefit a range of civil and military airborne applications including helicopter installations and ultra-light aircraft. Prestigious aerospace applications include adoption across Agusta Westland 139, 169 and 189 helicopters.

Dedicated in house expertise, development and manufacturing facilities at Aero Sekur include leakage test pools, purpose built frames for high pressure leakage tests and a specialist device for ammonium leakage tests. Jigs and templates for dimensional control are also housed at Aero Sekur’s primary production plant in Italy.

Manufactured from rubber (nitrile/HNBR) and rubber-coated fabric (nylon/Kevlar/Mylar), a number of advantages are offered over polyutherane construction including dimensional fuel stability, higher strength and stronger seams.

The crashworthy tanks are proven in military helicopter service and comply with MIL-T-27422, MIL-DTL-27422 and FAR 27/29. Aero Sekur’s tank products are compatible with aviation fuels to MIL-G-5572 (gasoline) and MIL-T-5024 (turbine fuels).

Aero Sekur is a specialist supplier of safety systems and advanced flexible structures to the global aerospace and defense markets.  The core competency of the business is the design and development of advanced engineered structures using flexible materials. Aero Sekur has produced flexible fuel tanks for more than 30 years.
