SealVac is Faster, Cleaner and Safer!

FASTER, CLEANER, and SAFER. Yes, the SealVac can be all things! It is easy to operate! Tank and tool vacuum is generated onboard using compressed air. The patented SealVac Fuel Drain Bowser vacuum tools seal to the aircraft sump or drain points, preventing aircraft fuel from going anywhere but down the vacuum hose into the tank. It does this without damage of any kind to the aircraft surface.

More About SealVac Plus+

We designed the SealVac Plus+ Fuel Drain Bowser to meet the needs of today’s “Do More With Less” mindset while allowing a precious resource to be recycled and reused. Uses include recycling filtered fuel back into aircraft, diesel vehicles, or ground support equipment. Organizations that have fielded the SealVac Plus+ fuel bowser are enthusiastic about the fuel reuse or recycling opportunity, and the money saved that accompanies this feature. The Plus+ model has several crucial feature additions over the basic SealVac:

Testimonials

"[On RAAF C130 aircraft, the SealVac] significantly reduces the time taken to vent the tanks from three days to just two hours from tank opening."

RAAF C130 Base Richmond, Hawkesbury, NSW, Australia

"[Using the SealVac], we spend 2 hours power sumping a 747. If we did the job manually, it would take about 6 hours."

United Airlines Maintenance Base SFO, San Francisco, CA

"We went from a fuel sumping taking 14 hours on an Airbus A330, to just two hours once we converted our process to the SealVac bowser."

Northwest Airlines Mx Base DTW (now Delta TechOps), Detriot MI

"The Spokane [SealVac System] are sealed fuel bowsers incorporating a compressed air vacuum, which facilitates the rapid removal of drainable fuel from the tanks. The system minimises the risk of fuel spillage and significantly reduces maintenance personnel’s exposure to fuel."

RAAF C130 Base Richmond, Hawkesbury, NSW, Australia

"On average, [by using the SealVac] the company would decrease time spent waiting on fuel to drain by 4 times, allowing the technicians to work on the aircraft much faster."

Jet Aviation St Louis, St Louis, MO

"We are reaping the benefits of the SealVac in the form of man hour savings as well as the safety margin it provides."

USCG Station Elizabeth City, Elizabeth City, NC

"The messy job of repairing fuel cells and tanks has also been improved with the purchase of a SealVac bowser.  No fuel spills equate to more recovered fuel, fewer spill pads, and less hazardous waste. Preventing spills also eliminates the associated health exposure."

2007 Secretary of Defense Environmental Award, Fairchild AFB, WA

"[Using SealVac], the time saved on the [C-130J] external tank drain procedure is 20+ hours."

More Information

FASTER!

The SealVac Fuel Bowser attaches to aircraft sump points with supplied drain tools employing a compressed air generated vacuum seal.  A vacuum enabled drain hose attaches to the tool, efficiently evacuating fuel from the sump at rates many times faster than gravity draining, potentially saving hours of time on each maintenance action. Our customers tells us the SealVac is about 80% faster than other methods using gravity draining.

Typical fuel drain rates are around 10 - 12 gallons per minute - this is per drain hose, of which the SealVac can handle as many as 4 at a time! Compare that to gravity draining, which can be a little as 1/2 gallon per minute.

CLEANER!

The SealVac bowser drain tools seal tightly around fuel sump drain points.  Fuel is vacuumed down the hose into the double-walled stainless steel holding tank, and not allowed to drip and dribble on the ground.
Using the drain hose assembly, even residual drops of fuel are captured, without spill a single drop on the ground - an important environmental consideration for today's managers and maintainers.

SAFER!

Exposure to aircraft fuel of any kind is not good for one's health. The gravity method of draining an aircraft fuel tank is a dirty job. It is almost impossible to open a sump and get out of the way without getting some personal fuel exposure. The SealVac vacuum fuel drain bowser can truly make routine exposure to fuel a thing of the past and allow the maintainer to complete the job of prepping a tank for maintenance without exposure to fuel. The SealVac system is the solution you have been looking for!

Just some of the SealVac's safety features:

> Carbon impregnated, static dissipating duplex drain and depuddling hoses prevent static buildup

> Double-walled, stainless steel collection tank self-contains possible leaks

> Automatic failsafe shutoff mechanism prevents overfilling collection tank

> Vacuum breaker prevents damage to aircraft fuel tanks, as well as protecting the SealVac itself

Using the SealVac, you can eliminate personal exposure to aircraft fuel when performing maintenance requiring sump draining! We recommend using the SealVac manual and online training videos before using the equipment for the first time. Within a short period, your maintenance team will be proficiently draining fuel from aircraft, often without spilling a single drop of fuel!
