Spill Containment Systems for the R-11 Aircraft Refueler
Volvo R-11 and the International R-11 Aircraft Refueling Tankers are used by the Air Force to provide transport capabilities for re-supply of aircraft’s and other vehicles. More specifically, the R-11 Refuel Tanker is used to provide a rapidly deployable mobile fueling station for the Air Force. When dealing with a primary vessel containing such a large capacity of fuel, spill containment should be a primary consideration for the safety of personnel and the environment. Whether for deployment or for storage on base, Containment Corp provides several spill containment systems for R-11 Refueler containment:
Permanent to Long-Term Spill Containment Systems for R-11 Refuelers
Tri-Star MAX Spill Containment System for R-11 Aircraft Refuelers
Tri-Star MAX is a steel spill containment system constructed of nine 7′ panels. The nine panels are sealed with gasket and caulking then bolted together. The entire system is constructed of 1/4″ steel. Heavy-Duty Steel Ramps are used to enter and exit the system. Drain Ports are installed on all four corners of the containment sump. Filter Boxes can be attached to any of the four drain ports to allow water to be safely drained from the system. Tri-Star MAX dimensions are 13′ x 63′ x 9″. System spill capacity is 5,426 gallons. Tri-Star MAX is shipped via standard Flatbed Truck.
Rapid Deploying Spill Containment Systems for R-11 Refuelers
Our standard Stinger Berm size for containing R-11 Aircraft Refuelers is 12′ x 60′ x 1’H. Stinger Berms are constructed of XR-5 fabric material. XR-5 is highly chemical resistant and extremely puncture and tear resistant. Stinger Berms are considered soft systems cause the fabric construction allows it to be folded up and stored or deployed as needed. Below are two 12′ x 60′ x 1’H Stinger Berm options we recommend for a rapid deploying Spill Containment System for R-11 Aircraft Refuelers:
Snap-Foam Stinger Berm Spill Containment System for R-11 Aircraft Refuelers
The Snap-Foam Stinger Berm incorporates foam walls with heavy duty connectors. End walls utilize a two-way air-relief that allows the wall to lower and raise automatically for un-manned entry and exit.
Snap-Up Stinger Berm Spill Containment System for R-11 Aircraft Refuelers
The Snap-Up Stinger Berm incorporates struts surrounding the exterior wall of the system. Struts can be easily snapped into place as needed. For entry and exit, users unsnap the struts on either end wall of the system.
