SealVac System Introduction


Additional Information

Fuel Bowsers for all aircraft


The SealVac is the innovative fuel drain solution that is FASTER, CLEANER, and SAFER than you ever imagined. It is the fuel draining solution that everyone is talking about!

Aircraft perform best in the sky, not sitting in the fuel hangar. The SealVac Vacuum Fuel Drain System reduces maintenance defueling and depuddling times from hours to minutes. Fuel system maintainers can get on with business instead of waiting for tanks to gravity drain.

Typically, gravity draining sumps for fuel cell maintenance takes many hours. During this time, most other types of maintenance cannot be performed due to open fuel tanks. A maintainer has to sit and watch the fuel drain; a productivity hit when manning is short.


SealVac solves this problem. What took many hours can now take minutes! Flow rates of up to 25 GPM have been observed (5 - 10 GPM typical), getting the job done so the sumps can be closed and power applied to the aircraft.


The SealVac Fuel Bowser Fuel Drain System in action


The SealVac Fuel Drain System opens a new chapter in environmentally friendly fuel system maintenance. It is truly an environmentally aware approach to fuel draining. The patented SealVac vacuum plate assembly seals to the aircraft sump, preventing fuel from going anywhere but down the vacuum hose into the holding tank. No more fuel "waterfalls" going onto the ramp.

Proper use of the SealVac system can virtually eliminate fuel spilling during fuel cell drain and depuddling operations. And possible EPA fines that are always a possibility when dealing with a fuel become a non-issue.

SealVac Contributes To USAF Base Winning SecDef Environmental Award

Fairchild AFB was awarded the 2008 Secretary of Defense Environmental Excellence in Weapon System Acquisition for their environmentally aware efforts basewide. Aircraft maintenance personnel eliminated fuel spills by employing the SealVac system during fuel cell maintenance.


SealVac Plus is GSA listed



Imagine the ability to filter fuel from the SealVac tank for reuse. One possible use would be recovering fuel for use in AGE/GSE equipment. Another would be for removing then recycling fuel for vehicle shipping operations. Click on logo above for more information about SealVac PLUS!
