A Customizable
Fueling Experience

Westmor's 10,000-gallon refueler provides flexibility for fuel providers
to service a wide range of aircraft.
WHEN IT comes to refueling, various airports have
unique requirements. That is why Westmor focuses
on customization when designing equipment,
including their 10,000-gallon refueler truck.
" The engine is mounted in the
rear to provide adequate distance
from the fueling operation and has a
hydrostatic pump drive system, " said
Mandi Carlberg, Westmor's marketing
communications manager. " The
10,000-gallon refueler is built in
compliance with ATA-103, NFPA 407,
NIST Handbook 44 and DOT 406
requirements. "
In addition to being customizable,
Westmor aims to provide equipment
that requires nominal maintenance.
" This unit is built on a chassis that is
designed for the refueling application. It

The 10,000-gallon refueler is
designed to service jet-powered aircraft.
" With the lift deck it can even reach
the fueling panel of the Airbus A380, "
said Pete Buffkin, Westmor's aviation
sales manager. " And with the addition
of an overwing reel, it can fuel aircraft
that don't accept a single point nozzle.
Much like our other products, we can
customize it based on our customer's
operational needs. "
The truck, which is currently in use
at major Canadian airports and by the
U.S. military, can refuel aircraft at rates
up to 800 gallons per minute (GPM).

is rugged, durable and simple without
excessive features that are designed into
the over-the-road chassis. It is designed
to keep maintenance minimal and
simple, just like the tank and refueling
system, " Buffkin says.
Because changes in the aviation
industry are often driven by regulatory
updates, Carlberg said Westmor
generally makes alterations to its
refuelers on a customer-by-customer
basis in order to provide as much
customization as possible.
" We are able to build any mix of
products required, " Carlberg said.
For example, the 10,000-gallon
refueler can feature bottom loading, a lift
deck, multiple primary and secondary
pressure control configurations, air or
electric deadman controls without time
delays, tank top fall protection systems,
stainless steel piping, primary and
secondary high-level shutdown systems,
Camlock dust caps, back-up alarms,
back-up cameras, one or two man cabs
and wing protection on the lift deck.
Additionally, it can feature multiple
meter options including electronic
meter registration and wireless data
transmission.
" The features and options are almost
endless, " Carlberg added.
Because of the wide array of airport
refueling needs, Westmor also makes
several sizes of refueler trucks, which
can vary from 1,000 to 10,000 gallons.
The size of the refueler depends on
the needs of the operation and the type
of aircraft being refueled. Westmor's
