Aircraft Fuel Hoses is a hose used to bring fuel from an aircraft to another or from a storage tank to an aircraft. It is commonly made of reinforced rubber to prevent splitting and kinking. Here is a list of different aircraft fuel hoses and how long you should expect them to last:
An Advantage aircraft fueling hose is for over and under the wing fueling of commercial and private aircraft. It handles jet fuel and av-gas up to 50% aromatic content. They are made of Spiral-plied synthetic fabric and one breaker. This aircraft hoses work perfectly at a temperature between -35°F to 200°F (-37°C to 93°C). This aircraft hoses are of cut lengths, coiled and poly wrapped. It is recommended that this hose is replaced every 5 years or on condition of inspection.
The double-line Deadman Refueling hose is for automatic shutoff at the operator end of aircraft hydrant and truck refueling systems. Used with pneumatic closed circuit systems commonly referred to as single point pressure refueling. Deadman aircraft hoses is connected to air-actuated shut-off valves, which are controlled by the refueler technician at all times during aircraft refueling operations. This aircraft hoses are made of Nitrile synthetic rubber, RMA Class A (High Oil Resistance). They are reinforced with Spiral synthetic yarn. These hoses are recommended to be replaced every decade due to age deterioration.
The Jet Ranger aircraft hoses are used in the fueling and defueling of commercial and private aircraft. They are resistant to jet fuel and higher aromatic aviation gasoline. They are also for use on hydrant service. The Jet Ranger aircraft hoses are made of spiral-plied synthetic fabric and one nylon breaker. This aircraft hoses work perfectly at a temperature between -35°F to 200°F (-37°C to 93°C). They seem to accept better the vibrations but should be changed every 5 years.
Platinum Jac Riser aircraft hoses are used for commercial and private aircraft fueling/defueling of avgas fuel. It can be used for vehicle/rail car loading and discharge, for trailer to fueler transfer and for elevation platform supply (riser) to provide greater kink resistance. They are reinforced with Spiral-plied synthetic fabric with dual helix and static dissipating wires. Due to the black nitrile synthetic rubber, these hoses should be replaced every decade to guard against ageing and embrittlement.
The Wingcraft aircraft hoses are used for fueling or defueling commercial and private aircraft. It handles jet fuel and the higher aromatic aviation gasoline. Its high working pressure permits use in fuel cart hydrant service. They are made of Black Nitrile synthetic rubber with black Wingprene (ORS) static dissipating/static conductive synthetic rubber. They are reinforced with spiral-plied synthetic fabric. This aircraft hoses work perfectly at a temperature between -35°F to 200°F (-37°C to 93°C). This hose need to be clamped or secured in some manner along their entire length but should be preplaced after 400 hours of usage.
