Didsbury Engineering have launched a new trolley based Modular variant of their successful Purge~Air system for fuel tank entry. The new system allows customers to purchase individual modules reducing the initial cost. Further modules can then be added as required. All Purge~Air systems are designed to ensure safe and fast access into fuel tanks for inspection and maintenance. The basic module provides equipment to drain residual fuel, ventilate tanks and provides breathing apparatus. Additional modules include communications kit, lighting and rescue equipment.
- Product From Westmor Industries, LLC
Westmor Industries, a leading manufacturer of fuel and liquid-handling systems and components, announces a new product offering for their Aviation division, the Mobile Fuel Testing System. The system provides aviation refueling personnel the opportunity to sample, filter and return fuel with an easy-to-use closed-loop system, virtually eliminating jet fuel sampling waste. Quick payback should be possible as all clean and dry fuel utilized in filter changes, delivery samples, and sump samples can be returned to inventory rather than being discarded. Westmor even offers an online calculator to provide an estimate of how quickly the new test system will pay for itself in annual fuel savings:
