We can provide API/EI approved refuelling system components that meet your particular operational requirements. Enquire Now.

A broad range of fluid pressure control devices and systems including: fuelling nozzles, vehicle bottom loading systems, pressure control hydrant couplers, pressure control valves, hydrant valves and under-hydrant maintenance valves and an environmental safe hydrant pit box.

Our fuel handling products are used in:

  • fuel storage facilities
  • airport fuel farms
  • airport underground hydrant fuelling systems
  • aircraft refuelling equipment
  • over-the-road transport tanker trucks

They combine the capabilities of two companies – formerly known as Avery-Hardoll and Whittaker Controls.

  • Designed for quick and easy maintenance
  • All our nozzles are designed and independently tested to SAE specification AS5877.
  • Each nozzle will be equipped with a hose swivel assembly that connects the nozzle to the fuelling hose.
  • Available with 3 or 6 slot connector, which mates to the standard 3-lug international aircraft adapter.
  • 40, 60 and 100 mesh strainers also available.

Accurate pressure control and excellent stability at all flow rates.

For primary and secondary pressure control systems, a wide range of control valves and couplings:

4” Pressure Control Couplers

  • EI 1584 4 th edition approved
  • use regulated reference air pressure and remote fuel sense pressure

3, 4 & 6” Vehicle Inline Control Valves

  • valve design option – diaphragm or piston
  • air operated or spring-set operation
  • working pressures to 200 psi

Rate-of-Flow Limiter Pilot Valve

For use in those fuelling systems requiring a “topping” rate control to override the primary pressure control.

All aluminuim valves use materials to provide maximum corrosion resistance.

Hydrant pit valves

  • EI 1584 4th edition approved
  • lanyard, air or dual pilot operation
  • low overshoot volume
  • low pressure drop
  • pressure-equalising valve for ease of coupling

Under-hydrant fire safe valves

  • fire safe compliant to API 6FA
  • choice of carbon or stainless steel bodies

Environmental safe hydrant pit boxes

Developed with an international oil company, it prevents fuel spillage escaping and contaminating surrounding areas.

Fuel sampling, vent and drain unit

  • installed in hydrant system pipelines
  • 3 functions in 1 unit
  • 6-inch ANSI class flange
