Aviation Tanks

TrueNorth Steel – Plasteel® UL Listed Elutron® Double Walled Steel Fiberglass Jacketed Fuel Storage System

Aviation and Mission Critical Fueling Applications

TrueNorth Steel’s UL Listed Elutron® steel and fiberglass jacketed underground fuel storage tanks can be employed to supply fuel directly to aviation fueling pumps, refueling tank trucks and trailers, pushback and baggage tractors and generators. Our tanks are compatible with Jet A, Jet A1 and Jet B aviation fuels.

Steel fuel containment systems have a proven history of providing reliable and safe storage of fuel products for aviation and mission critical applications. The fiberglass reinforced plastic “FRP” outer jacket, secondary containment layer creates a high performance, seamless and durable underground storage solution suitable for the aggressive conditions common in aviation fueling environments. The 360º interstice between the steel and FRP secondary containment jacket creates a reliable method for leak detection. The Elutron® system meets the EPA 40 CFR subpart B, 280.20 standards for new underground storage tanks.

Installation of Elutron® diesel underground storage tanks is uncomplicated and due to the inherent, long term strength of steel are less dependent upon backfill for support when compared to non-metallic underground tank systems. Non-metallic underground tank systems require high-quality gravel backfill and a greater distance between adjacent tanks.

Each Elutron® system is supplied with a factory-established interstitial vacuum. Prior to delivery, our team cleans and levels all the fittings and mark the center lines on each tank. These details save installers several hours of work normally spent on the pre-installation testing and cleaning of non metallic tanks.

Quality is built-in to every tank system TrueNorth Steel fabricates and our production facility is certified and regularly audited by the American Petroleum Institute and Underwriter’s Laboratories.

TrueNorth Steel is a reliable partner with over 70 years of experience fabricating superior steel products including a wide array of storage tanks such as above ground fuel storage tanks, Fireguard® fire rated fuel storage systems, modular agricultural fuel storage tanks and petroleum storage tanks for oilfield applications.
