Fuel Tank Services – Airport Tank Cleaning & Maintenance

Fuel Tank Services – Airport Tank Cleaning & Maintenance

We carry out fuel tank services, such as fuel tank cleaning, within a number of different sectors.

One of these sectors includes tank cleaning for airport fuelling companies. We have a wide range of experience in all types of civilian airports, airfields, and military air bases.

When it comes to any of our fuel tank cleaning services, the quality of the work we perform is always without compromise. We know our clients need absolute assurance that when the tank is in use again, there is no doubt about the quality of our work.

Airport Fuel Tank Cleaning

We recognise that keeping aviation tanks clean is essential. Therefore, we take great care when working on them to ensure all tasks are completed with the highest level of care and safety.

When it comes to cleaning fuel tanks at airports, DP Fuel Tank Services also use specialised tools to avoid damaging the epoxy resin coating, which is typically found within aviation fuel-grade tanks.

As you can imagine, there is potential for some serious worst-case scenarios when dealing with aviation fuel systems, meaning there is no room for error. This is why we triple check everything, and work to strict safe systems of work.

As part of our fuel tank services, we offer NDT testing. Our equipment is able to measure the tank’s steel plate thickness, as well as that of the resin coatings.

Our extensive and varied aircraft-related CV includes:

  • Decommissioning and removing redundant tank farms and refuelling facilities
  • Cleaning temporary storage tanks for aircraft repair companies
  • Cleaning avgas and kerosene fuel storage tanks

We also provide our services for mobile fuelling bowsers used to refuel aircraft on the ramp.

A recent project required us to restore an Avgas bowser’s access manlid.

Normal tank paints cannot be used for aviation applications, and specialist coatings are required given the sensitive nature.
