When you get one, you will wonder how you did without!

The HeliFueler® from Spokane Stainless Technologies is engineered to provide an efficient solution to the challenges of maintaining helicopter fuel systems. With the HeliFueler, maintenance crews can take control of the defueling process, draining and sumping aircraft without time-consuming gravity draining, or waiting for a HEMTT to do what you could have finished hours ago.
- The fastest helicopter defueler/sumping system on the market: The HeliFueler is equipped to defuel and sump all major US Army helicopters, without slow and messy buckets. The system's hose couples direct to the fuel tank sump drain, drawing fuel out at up to 15 gallons per minute. Compare this to less than 2 gallons per minute with the pail method. The HeliFueler connects without additional tools. For fuel tanks that employ "over the wing" systems, the HeliFueler is equipped with rigid and flex defueling wands.

- Safe operation and environmental cleanliness is paramount: The HeliFueler's sump fittings engage the aircraft drains cleanly, without spilling a drop of fuel, eliminating personnel exposure. Draining cleanly means HeliFueler is environmentally friendly. The HeliFueler is the Fastest, Safest and Cleanest helicopter defuel solution available.

Dual stage, Aviation-Grade fuel filters:
Dual stage fuel filtration allows reuse of fuel in aircraft, vehicles, or in AGSE. The HeliFueler filter system employs a Coalescer particulate/water separator first stage, and a Monitor fuel dryer second stage. Fuel can be dispensed directly back into aircraft, vehicles, or into AGSE via the onboard refueling nozzle. The HeliFueler is equipped with pre and post filter fuel sample ports for fuel quality monitoring. Multi-mode operation: The HeliFueler operates via onboard Optima® deep-cycle batteries, or in shop via the worldwide charger/power supply.

- Loaded with thoughtful features: Aviation Grade dual-stage filtration All LED lighting Fuel meter Retractable hose reel Full length stainless hose guides Reel mounted bonding clamps Pre and post filter sample ports Lockable manway and fill port Bottom drain / sample port PPE equipment stowage Fuel log stowage Heavy-duty tie downs Non-slip side step double-walled, stainless Put the HeliFueler Rotary Wing Fuel Cart to work in your unit today and get on with the business of flying helicopters!

The HeliFueler is a great idea that is getting a lot of attention!

Safety FirSafe operation and environmental cleanliness is paramount: The HeliFueler's sump fittings engage the aircraft drains cleanly, without spilling a drop of fuel, eliminating personnel exposure.

Some of the thoughtful safety features include (get ready, it's a long list!):

-  Low profile tank makes overturning practically impossible
-  Double-walled stainless steel tank self-contains any possible leaks; easy to access inspection port on tank bottom
-  Open design of pump platform prevents dangerous buildup of fuel vapors
-  Auto-recirculate valve protects pump overheating by preventing "dead-heading" when nozzle is not in operation
-  Lockable top manway and fuel fill port prevents fuel contamination (No crewchiefs dumping used oil into your fuel supply)
-  Top fill with z shaped internal tube; prevents static buildup from free-fall of fuel during cart filling operations
-  All sealed LED lighting; in addition to low current draw, LED lamps run cool for safe operation around fuel vapors
-  Carbon impregnated fuel hose; prevents static generation and buildup during fueleing/defueling
-  Emergency kill "E-Stop" button allows immediate shutdown of pump in an emergency situation
-  10 pound "Purple K" fire extinguisher mounted for fast access in an emergency
-  Bonding clamp to equalize static voltage potential between refueler and equipment under service; mitigates spark generation from moving fuel
-  Aviation grade coalescing filter; removes particulates and water from fuel
-  Aviation grade monitor filter; monitors water content of fuel; limited fuel drying capabilities, and flow stop if fuel contamination is present
-  All electical components are UL/CE rated
-  Oversized universal spill kit (PIG); respond to accidental spills from Handifueler, or to spills from other ramp sources as a "first responder"
-  Automatic shutoff fuel nozzle (not to be confused with auto-locking nozzle; this "unsafe" feature has been disabled)
-  Fuel flow is about 15 GPM, very similar to the automotive gas station experience
-  Sealed, leakproof Optima batteries provide long run time with full safety in a fueling environment
-  Metal (NEMA) electrical box, grounded and sealed against vapors and weather
-  Clear cover over electrical box terminal to prevent electric shock
-  10 gallon air bottle with overpressure protection provides air to the Tire Service Station
-  Aggressive non-skid material applied to side steps to prevent slipping

Contact us! We look forward to proving that the HeliFueler Rotary Wing Fuel Service Cart is a Safe and Effective ground support refuel/defuel method to service Helicopters on the ramp, or in the field.

We guarantee you will wonder how you serviced your helicopters without it!

The HeliFueler May Be New, But Word Is Getting Around...

What Users Are Saying About HeliFueler  
The HeliFueler provides a degree of defueling mobility we didn't have before. So much easier to use than prior methods. Our vacuum defueler stays near the hangar, and our HeliFueler is employed on the tarmac.

1106th TASMG, CA ANG, Fresno, CA
We were tired of waiting hours on a HEMTT to do what HeliFueler can do in a few minutes. We can mobilize our HeliFuelers into landing zones simply unaccessable to HEMMTs.

101st Combat Aviation Brigade, Ft Campbell, KY
We love how easy it is to use the HeliFueler on the ramp at home, and then quickly send it to a remote landing zone for defueling or refueling support.
Drug Enforcement Program, US State Dept., Patrick AFB, FL
It is so easy to roll the HeliFueler into position in our service hangars. Two people can move it from aircraft to aircraft, even when nearly full. Defueling is much easier, now.

More Information

Why wait on a HEMMT to defuel your helicopters, when you could have got the job done with a HeliFueler hours ago? The HeliFueler is fully self-contained, operating from Optima rechargeable batteries - allowing unprecedented remote defueling or refueling operations, on the ramp, in the hangar, and in places a HEMMT can't go. Feedback received from enthusiastic HeliFueler users indicates using it is safer, faster, and more convenient that other methods.
