Aviation Refuelling Equipment: Hoses and Couplings, Nozzles, Expansion Joints

Working closely with operators, oil companies and standards committees for 60 years, ELAFLEX knows what matters for aviation refuelling equipment.

Our product range for the aviation sector comprises hoses, fittings, overwing nozzles, dry disconnect couplings and rubber expansion joints.

Quality and safety are top priorities. Since 1948 our “Yellow Band” aviation hoses are developed in close cooperation with ContiTech. Also regarding couplings, major products are own developments. Having in hand both development and production, we ensure product reliability and durability.

ELAFLEX offers a range of services, e.g. professional assembling, testing of electrical continuity and coding. Our vast stock holding capacity – and global distribution partners in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America ensure short lead times.

Company Profile

  • Aircraft Refuelling Hoses

    Yellow Bandaircraft refuelling hoses comply with all relevant standards, including the latest ISO 1825 / API 1529 and meet worldwide military and civil usage. They are lightweight, highly flexible, also at low temperatures, very safe to operate and show a superior lifetime.
    Types HD-C, VHD-C, PHD-F or TW-E are suitable for all aviation gasolines, jet fuels and de-icing fluids.

    ELAFLEX also offers aviation hoses with NEON marking. The new reflecting stripes increase safety, especially in low light situations.

    For long hose assemblies we have developed hose beadsBD‘ acc. to the EI standard 1522 (in preparation) which notably improve the handling as they reduce friction against the tarmac. They additionally protect against hose abrasion. Type ‘BD’ can be easily assembled or disassembled and are suitable for reeling.

  • Hose Couplings

    Safeguarding media purity, ELAFLEX hose couplings with BSP or NPT thread are available in stainless steel or tin plated brass as recommended by JIG Guidelines. They avoid contact of aviation fuel with non-ferrous metals.

    Threaded or flanged – with Spannfix or Spannloc safety clamps – most coupling types are available ex stock.

  • Overwing Nozzles

    Being a market leader in petrol station nozzles, our product range includes overwing nozzles for aircraft and helicopter refuelling – with AVGAS or JET-A1 spouts and suited accessories.

    Our next generation overwing nozzle ZVF 50 has well received by aircraft refuelling perators worldwide. It meets the JIG guidelines, is lightweight, has good handling properties, and boasts an extremely low hold-open force and sensitive flow control. ZVF 50 is available with a variety of equipment options.

    For the installation on board of airfield refuellers, a corresponding nozzle boot NB-ZVF 50 can be delivered.

    The following nozzle types are commonly used:

    • Manual nozzles: ZVF 50 and ZVF 25 (free of non-ferrous metals)
    • Automatic nozzles: ZVA 25 AF (free of non-ferrous metals) and ZVA 32
  • Rubber Expansion Joints

    For installation within the pipe systems of aviation refuellers we recommend our renowned ERV-G rubber expansion joints which reliably dampen vibrations occuring during operation. For regions with low temperatures, a special LT version is also available.

  • MannTek Aviation Equipment

    For the loading of aviation refuellers (airfield tank trucks), MannTek ‘DACDry Aviation Couplings to ISO 45 have proven themselves in practice for a quick and clean connection without spill. They are used for the bottom loading of aviation fuel to refuellers. DAC is compatible with all common underwing couplings.

    Further products for the installation in aviation refuellers incorporate e g. DDC couplings for fuel sampling or FFB Full Flow Ballvalves.
