The 5K Refueler features BETA’s engineered frame made with aluminum for lighter weight while tanks come in aluminum, stainless steel or a combination of the two. The side modules are designed to provide maximum protection from impact using a narrower chassis and flexible joints to protect the pipework and valves. Individual control and filter modules mount directly onto the chassis rather than a sub frame. The 5K Refueler comes standard with BETA’s all-aluminum filter vessel. It also features an underwing hose reel with electric rewind; a single foot valve for simplicity and ease of maintenance; and more durable stainless steel pipework. Optional features include Aljac and recovery tank for fuel sampling, a stainless steel bolstered tank and upgraded tank suspension for easier access to fuel lines and valves, tank soffit to prevent ice build-up and a second hose reel to allow for metering fuel into each wing.
