Muststore® is the Musthane trademark offering many fluid storage and supply options (flexible tanks, refueling pumps and filters for water, effluents, jet fuel, JP 8 Jet A1...).
All these solutions take into account operating mobility and agility requirements (Design To Mobility®) critical to be efficient in emergency cases.
Each situation includes extraordinary aspects (altitude, temperature, space…) and requires an adaptation and configuration of means tested in other cases. Our Engineering department has the experience required and capacity to examine your specifications to provide the best – cost-effective and technically efficient – solution.
|Refuellers for aircraft or helicopter refuelling |
Musthane proposes heavy duty and high performance light weight mobile refueling pumps & filters for Aircrafts (jet fuel filtration JP 8, Jet A1), vehicles (diesel or gasoline pumping and filtration) boats or UAVs.
These refueling pumps & filters, generally designed with positive displacement pumps, are in service with many armies. Our refueling pumps and filters enable fast and safe fuelling of light planes, helicopters and vehicles.
They can be connected to our flexible tanks or any other means of fuel storage.
We offer a wide range of refueling pumps & filters. Please contact our sales department for more information.

|Forward area refueling equipment (FARE 400) |
Musthane offers a versatile solution for refueling in forward areas. This solution enables to have a mobile forward area refueling unit with a total capacity of 2000 USG thanks to 4 (four) fuel bladders of 500 USG. Our Air Portable Fuel Containers (APFC) can be also towed behind a vehicle or dropped from a height of 4 meters.
The APFCs can be connected together and refuel aircrafts at a nominal rate of 400 lpm.
Main features of the FARE:
• Maximum filtered flow rate: 100 US GPM (approx. 400 lpm)
• Total weight of the FARE: approx. 1700 Kg (with 4 units of 500 USG drums)
• Overall dimensions: approx. 4400mm x 2150mm x 1300mm
• Filtration : API EI 1583 or 1581 latestedition (on request)
• Total aviation fuel storagecapacity : 1000 USG (approx.. 3800 liters)
• Modularity: this system can be combined with other modules (larger bladders, other type of fuel transfer pump (200 lpm to 1600 lpm, trailers…)
|Flexible Tanks for Storage of Hydrocarbons |
Muststore® HC fuel bladders have a pillow shape. They are foldable and light. They can be easily carried and set up.
Muststore® HC fuel tanks are specially designed for the storage of hydrocarbons, oil for transformers, chemical products… They are used in various fields, such as agribusiness, public works, humanitary, military and industrial areas.
Muststore® HC fuel bladders offer an entire protection of the stored liquid. Thanks to the design of the tanks, stored liquids can not be in contact with air as the tank’s inner side always takes the exact shape of the stored liquid. Moreover, there is no risk of evaporation and explosion due to gaz formation.
In order to prevent the stored liquid from any contamination, a neutral barrier film will be added to the flexible tank’s inner side.
» Easy and quick set up
» Compact (foldable at less than 5% of the total volume)
» High resistance to climatic conditions
» No risk of condensation and liquid contamination
» No risk of stored liquid’s evaporation
» Protection of the stored liquid
» No risk of environment pollution
|Technical Characteristics |
Muststore® HC fuel flexible tanks are made of elastomer coated fabrics manufactured by homogenous vulcanization in one operation. The fabrics ensure the mechanical resistance. Coating and design engineering grant chemical properties and water tightness.
Our fuel bladders are available from 10 liters capacity up to 800.000 liter capacity. However, Musthane recommends to its customers not to exceed 200.000 liter capacity given the risks may result in case of an accident.
Fuel tanks must be installed inside a containment system (berm liner, bund liner…) in order to prevent any risk of environment pollution. Musthane has a large range of containment systems for a fuel bladder.
Musthane, as a true fuel handling professional, has a full range of tailor made fuel pumping and filtration equipment. Musthane designs your fuel farm (based on fuel bladders or metallic fuel tanks) and assemble the appropriate containerised fuel stations of fuel pumps and filtration units.
|Helitransportable and Towable Flexible Tanks |
| | Back to menu Advantages:
Muststore® HT towable and helitransportable flexible tanks have a circular shape. They are foldable and light. They can be easily carried and set up. These fuel or water bladders are also named APFC (air portable fuel container) or fuel drum.
Muststore® HT flexible drums are specially designed for the transport and storage of fuel or water. Muststore® HT flexible tanks are efficient for both air and ground transportation:
- Transport by helicopter: slingable and droppable.
- Transport by truck: rollable or on the truck platform.
- Transport by boat : towable.
» Compact (foldable at 15% of the total volume).
» High resistance to extreme conditions and outside storage.
» Droppable when full from helicopter or truck.
» Carriable, towable, slingable and rollable.
|Technical Characteristics |
Muststore® HT flexible tanks are made of nylon coated fabrics manufactured with synthetic nitrile rubber. The fabric ensures the mechanical resistance with an average thickness of 5mm to 16 mm. Coating and design engineering grant chemical properties and watertightness.
The external side of the Muststore® HT flexible tanks is specifically designed to resist to abrasion, UV-rays and hydrocarbons.
On the inner side of the Muststore® HT flexible tanks, the linings are Non-contaminating to the contents, even after an extended storage period. A specific barrier film is used for each application (fuel, oil or water).
