Military Fuel Systems

Multi-mission capable fuel and water systems

In Use By Military Around the World

SEI Industries Ltd. has been supporting military forces around the world with rapidly deployable fuel and water storage, transferring, transportation and pumping systems for more than 20 years.

SEI’s remote site products are typically field-tested by users under extreme conditions and, from those outcomes, product lines have evolved to become some of the best in the world. SEI’s lengthy record of serving the military has provided a depth of experience in engineering and manufacturing custom mission support solutions for combat support, special forces, humanitarian, peace keeping and policing missions.

Some custom solutions include ablution liquid storage, sewage treatment ponds, water monitoring equipment, micro Forward Area Refueling Equipment (FARE) and platform specific range extension or fuel delivery solutions for many applications including Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs) and C-130 transports.

All SEI military clients can depend on dedicated supply life cycle management (LCM) and field support representatives (FSRs).


Engineered Combat Tough

FSDS – NSN 4930-21-910-0723

The Fuel Storage and Distribution System (FSDS) is designed to provide safe, efficient storage and distribution for 360,000 liters of bulk fuel. The tank farm consists of four 90,000 liter bladder tanks (Arctic King tanks) suitable for the containment of fuels. Flexible hoses connect the tanks to the fill/discharge pumps and manifolds. A 100 US gallon-per-minute (GPM) electric-driven pump is used to fill the system and a 40 US GPM electric-driven pump is used for discharging fuel from the system. Both electric-driven systems have auxiliary fuel-driven units to be used in the event of a disruption of electric power.


HPARS –NSN 4320-20-002-4760

The High Pressure Aviation Re-Fueling System (HPARS) is intended for the fueling and de-fueling of aircraft and tanker trucks using NATO F34 fuel. It is designed to connect to the flexible tanks of the Fuel Storage and Distribution System (FSDS): NSN 4930-21-910-0723. The system uses a self-priming centrifugal pump driven by an electric motor. Filtration is provided by a horizontal filter separator per API Group II Class B.

A flow meter is included to measure the amount of fuel delivered. A flow rate meter is also provided to determine the velocity of fuel flow during de-fueling operations. Flow is controlled by a manually operated globe valve. The system is rated for a maximum flow rate of 800 liters (200 USG) per minute. The exterior steel enclosure is painted in CARC II (chemical agent resistant coating).


F34DS – NSN 4930-20-005-8899

The F34 Distribution System (F34DS) is a robust fuel storage and distribution system with its 12,000 liter double-walled tank housed in a 20’ ISO sea container and designed to be deployed in combat zones anywhere by air, rail, truck or ship. Offering tough containment to meet harsh conditions, the F34DS is an advanced support tool for any military force.

The F34DS provides re-locatable fuel storage, filtration and dispensing system designed for use with NATO F34 Fuel Dispensing System (F34DS) (JP-8, Jet A-1) and for F-54 (diesel) fuels. The unit can fuel up to two (2) ground vehicles or aircraft simultaneously. The system requires a source of electricity, 208 volt, 3 phase, 60 Hz electrical power through a generator or shore power from a permanent ground station.


The Best Military Bladder Tank

SEI’s Arctic King, Desert King and Jungle King series of collapsible fuel tanks were invented to provide militaries operating in specific climates with extended life cycles not found in traditional US military specification tanks.

Originally, collapsible fuel tanks were designed to meet US military standards that were developed in the late 1980s. During this same time period, SEI started manufacturing collapsible fuel tanks for the Canadian military in 1986 to support UN peacekeepers. At the time, the Department of National Defence (DND) was looking for a domestic supplier and was attracted by SEI’s reputation for innovative fabric products. Up to that point, DND had been purchasing tanks from US suppliers but their short life cycle didn’t fit DND’s budget.

Although this short cycle suited the US military model, DND did not have the money to keep replacing tanks every 1-3 years so SEI set out to develop a tank that exceeded this service life. Now, it’s common to see SEI’s tanks lasting 5-10 years.
