Automated fueling or robotic fueling involves the use of automation to remove human labor from the fueling process. The fueling is performed by a robotic arm, which opens the flap, unscrews the cap, picks up the fuel nozzle and inserts it into the tank opening. It requires the contours and dimensions of the fuel cap to be present in the database.
The most advanced diesel automation technology available
CORE’s custom-built, fully automated fueling units are tailor-made to client needs and specifications. We design and bring the most advanced diesel automation technology to the market, including:
- 26+ custom-built heavy-duty motorized hose reels with over 450 feet of capacity, dynamic flow rate modulation and predictive fuel consumption technology.
- 1,500- gallon clear fuel cell with gauge panels and reinforced seams.
- Bulk fuel storage (over 21,000-gallon capacity), including a patent pending piping system that prevents manual pull-off and fuel contamination issues.
- Proprietary fuel valves that avoid clogging and spills, enhance pump performance and eliminate Non-Productive Time (NPT).
AUTOMATE PROCESSES IN AVIATION FUELING
Eliminate human error and loss
Aviation fueling eliminate human error and loss that come with traditional paper ticketing for fuel transactions, and the manual measurement and reconciliation of fuel inventory in fuel tanks. With set of solutions to streamline the complete fuel ecosystem for both commercial and general aviation.
Capture fuel transaction data with the EMR4 Electronic Meter Register
The EMR4 is designed to be installed or integrated with any meter as a custody transfer approved electronic meter register.
The core components, along with a series of accessories, allow the user to configure a system that meets their specific needs on the aircraft refueler, hydrant cart, fuel farm, or anywhere else fuel is dispensed at an airport.
Incorporate Datalink with EMR4 to automate data transfer
Pair EMR4 with Datalink software for a fully automated wireless solution. This eliminates lost, missing, and mis-written tickets that arise from manual ticketing processes and redistribute your manpower to more productive operating areas of your business.
Eliminate manual measurements of your fuel inventory with the TLS4i or TLS4c Automatic Tank Gauge
Safety precaution while automated fueling system
- Do not overfill the fuel tank. The pressure in an overfilled tank may cause leakage and lead to fuel spray and fire.
- The fuel system may be under pressure. If you hear a hissing sound near the fuel filler inlet, do not refuel until the sound stops. Otherwise, fuel may spray out, which could cause serious personal injury.
- Automotive fuels can cause serious injury or death if misused or mishandled.
- Flow of fuel through a fuel pump nozzle can produce static electricity. This can cause a fire if you are filling an ungrounded fuel container.
- Fuel may contain benzene, which is a cancer-causing agent.
- When refueling always shut the engine off and never allow sparks or open flames near the fuel tank filler valve.
- Never smoke or use a cell phone while refueling. Fuel vapor is extremely hazardous under certain conditions. Avoid inhaling excess fumes.
