    What Users Are Saying About SealVac    
"[Using SealVac], the time saved on the [C-130J] external tank drain procedure is 20+ hours"
USCG Station Elizabeth City, Elizabeth City, NC
"On average, [by using the SealVac] the company would decrease time spent waiting on fuel to drain by 4 times, allowing the technicians to work on the aircraft much faster"
Jet Aviation St Louis, St Louis, MO
"[Using the SealVac], we spend 2 hours power sumping a 747. If we did the job manually, it would take about 6 hours"
United Airlines Maintenance Base SFO, San Francisco, CA
"We are reaping the benefits of the SealVac in the form of man hour savings as well as the safety margin it provides"
USCG Station Elizabeth City, Elizabeth City, NC
"The Spokane [SealVac System] are sealed fuel bowsers incorporating a compressed air vacuum, which facilitates the rapid removal of drainable fuel from the tanks. The system minimises the risk of fuel spillage and significantly reduces maintenance personnel’s exposure to fuel"
RAAF C130 Base Richmond, Hawkesbury, NSW, Australia
"The messy job of repairing fuel cells and tanks has also been improved with the purchase of a SealVac bowser.  No fuel spills equate to more recovered fuel, fewer spill pads, and less hazardous waste. Preventing spills also eliminates the associated health exposure"
2007 Secretary of Defense Environmental Award, Fairchild AFB, WA
"[On RAAF C130 aircraft, the SealVac] significantly reduces the time taken to vent the tanks from three days to just two hours from tank opening"
RAAF C130 Base Richmond, Hawkesbury, NSW, Australia
"We went from a fuel sumping taking 14 hours on an Airbus A330, to just two hours once we converted our process to the SealVac bowser"

What is the SealVac Fuel Drain System?

Nothing is Faster, Cleaner, or Safer than the SealVac!

The SealVac® Vacuum Fuel Drain Bowser from Spokane Industries® is the innovative aircraft vacuum fuel drain bowser that is FASTER, CLEANER, and SAFER than you ever imagined.

The SealVac Vacuum Fuel Drain Bowser quickly and safely slashes fuel draining and depuddling times from hours to minutes so aircraft maintenance can proceed without delay. Fuel system maintainers can get on with business instead of sitting around waiting around for aircraft tanks to gravity drain. The SealVac speeds fuel maintenance like nothing else!

The SealVac operates from an external compressed air source. Tank and tool vacuum is generated onboard using this compressed air. No moving parts to break or maintain.

The patented SealVac Fuel Drain Bowser vacuum tools seal to the aircraft sump or drain points, preventing aircraft fuel from going anywhere but down the vacuum hose into the tank. It does this without damage of any kind to the aircraft surface.

Amazing fuel drain speed aside, additional benefits facilitated by the SealVac Fuel Drain Bowser:

– Maximize fuel-handling safety by significantly reducing human contact with fuel. In fact, it is common to drain an aircraft without spilling a single drop of fuel when employing the SealVac. Safety features abound: Aviation grade static dissipating hoses, overflow shutoff, bonded/grounded chassis, and double-walled tank.

– Eliminate environmental hazards. Fuel goes down the hose–not on the ground. The SealVac stainless steel tank is double walled for self-containment.

The SealVac fuel bowser system is fielded and in daily use at hundreds of locations including US military bases, airports, airline maintenance hubs, aircraft manufacturers (Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumman, Embraer, Sikorsky, and Eurocopter), and MROs worldwide. It is in use on most major airframes, and can be easily fitted to addtional models.

If fuel reuse or recycling is a priority, we offer the upgraded SealVac Plus+ fuel bowser model with pneumatic pump and aviation-grade coalescer filter. Uses include recycling filtered fuel back into aircraft, diesel vehicles, or ground support equipment. Organizations that have fielded the SealVac Plus+ fuel bowser are enthusiastic about the fuel reuse or recycling opportunity, and the money saved that accompanies this feature.

The Sealvac and SealVac Plus+ is available in 200, 400, and 600 gallon sizes direct from Spokane Industries, Warner-Robins Air Logistics Depot as an equipment item, or through GSA contract. The SealVac is CE marked for use at European facilities. Contact Spokane Industries today for more information.

SealVac Plus+® Specifications
Let's discuss facts: Exposure to aircraft fuel of any kind is not good for one's health. The gravity method of draining an aircraft fuel tank is a dirty job. It is almost impossible to open a sump and get out of the way without getting some personal fuel exposure. The SealVac Vacuum Fuel Drain Bowser can truly make routine exposure to fuel a thing of the past and allow the maintainer to complete the job of prepping a tank for maintenance without exposure to fuel. The SealVac System is the SOLUTION you have been looking for!

With less than 20 minutes of familiarity with the SealVac bowser’s drain tools, YOU CAN ELIMINATE PERSONAL EXPOSURE TO AIRCRAFT FUEL WHEN PERFORMING MAINTENANCE REQUIRING SUMP DRAINING! We recommend using the SealVac manual and online training videos before using the equipment for the first time.

Below are some documents collected from web sources detailing the effects of exposure to JP-8 or Jet fuels (Jet-A, JP-4 and AVgas have similar health issues). Click to links view (Acrobat Reader required):
