A double-walled BATT fuel tank is given preference for the aviation transportation. Usually, a single-walled tank does not have the strapping structure built on tank and relies upon the cargo nets or the exterior straps that shift or cannot t be completely tightened up.
The exclusive design of the double-walled BATT fuel tank has the strapping structure so as to secure it to the airplane. It lets the negligible shift of the innermost tank for the duration of flying operations and it also makes sure that the innermost BATT fuel tank may not get the minor micro tears in the joints or else it can cause the failure of the BATT fuel tank at the end of the day. In addition, it lets the tank to be more squarely protected to the airplane for the reason that the strapping cannot shift on the outside of the tank.
The external of the BATT fuel tank is constructed from 32 oz OBU urethane fabric which is characteristically utilized in the oil boom containment which is in continuous movement. This is planned to resist the hydrocarbons, scratches and the puncture. The inside of the BATT fuel tank is designed precisely to be in continuous contact with the hydrocarbons and it is constructed from the exclusive fabric which even goes beyond the military specifications.
The Features of a BATT Fuel Tank
A good quality BATT fuel tank is supposed to have the following features.
It makes the rapid reconfiguration of the airplane possible from carrying cargo to the carrying bulk fuel.
It is possible to have mixed loads as well.
It allows its operator to buy and transport the bulk fuel, completely taking the full advantage of airplane’s weight carrying capacity for the reason that the BATT fuel tanks fill fuselage part in the appropriate manner and they are quite light in weight as compared
to the drums or steel tanks.
The dead head flights, which do not have any cargo or travelers, are minimalized since a BATT fuel tank can be easily folded and stored when it is not in use.
It eradicates the chances of the damage to the airplane during the handling of fuel drums and it also decreases the loss of fuel as fuel is spoiled in the drums. Overlap, it make savings to the operators who recurrently bear the loss of money as they can’t return the impaired drums.
