Company Profile

  • Aircraft Refuelling Vehicles - Aircraft Refuellers

    We manufacture aircraft refuellers for fuelling the smallest private aeroplane to the largest commercial passenger fleet, and also military aircraft refuelling vehicles. Our products range from 5,000 litre rigid vehicles to 65,000 litre articulated and drawbar trailer units, and are fitted with modular systems tailored to meet modern day aircraft refuelling pressure and flow-rate requirements.

    Options for our aviation refuellers include low profile vehicle designs, and defuelling capabilities. Utilising the very latest electronic metering equipment and safety systems, our aircraft refuellers employ the newest proven technologies, are built to the latest standards (including JIG), and are the industry benchmark for both reliability, and performance.

    FTi also provides leasing options for both new and refurbished aircraft refuellers, offering flexible solutions for your aviation refuelling needs.

  • Aircraft Refuelling Vehicles - Hydrant Dispensers

    From dispensers that feature hi-lift platforms capable of reaching the highest refuelling point of any wide-bodied aircraft in service today, to ultra-low profile dispensers specifically designed to refuel low wing aircraft such as the Boeing 737-800 and the Airbus A320, FTi manufacture hydrant dispensers that are capable of meeting the aviation refuelling needs of any customer.

    As the market leader in the development and manufacture of fuel dispensers, Fluid Transfer International have now launched the “Razer” electric powered hydrant dispenser; providing aircraft refuelling from a vehicle producing zero emissions. Our hydrant dispenser modules feature equipment that has redefined industry standards, and are one of the most important recent developments in aviation refuelling, providing competitively priced modules in a much shorter manufacture time.

    All dispensers contain state of the art safety and operating systems, and have a wide range of options. This, coupled with our ability to design and manufacture tailor-made designs to exact specifications enables us to manufacture aviation refuelling vehicles to meet the requirements of every customer.

    Our hydrant dispenser modules are pre-qualified, performance tested, and then shipped from our factory for mounting on locally sourced chassis units around the world. We also produce a range of compact, towable, hydrant carts dispensers, providing aircraft refuelling solutions for HUB and short haul operators.
