Helitak Fire Tank

Helitak Fire Tank

The Tank Design;

The Fire underbelly tanks are custom built for each make and type of helicopter with a carrying capacity ranging from 1000 to 10000 litres (250 US Gal to 2645 US Gal). The top section of the tank is constructed from carbon fibre construction and the design is such that no modifications are required to the aircraft. The extendable bag is manufactured from a specially sourced, heavy grade, hard wearing and tear resistant vinyl material – Rated to 15ton. The tanks have built in compartments housing the electrical systems, Microprocessor Control Unit, hydraulic components and the foam dispensing tank and pumps as well. Fail safe door operation allowing the doors to open following a loss of power. Drop sequencing can be variable controlled by the pilot from the easy to use cockpit controller. Helitak manufactured hover pumps provide refill times of less than 30 seconds for the HP2000 and less than 50 seconds for the HP6000 and less than 60 seconds for the HP10000. Dual hover pumps can be installed on larger tanks for reduced fill times and to add redundancy in the event of pump malfunction.

Helitak has a range of tanks to suit the most popular helicopters commonly used in fire suppression. We have tanks to suit the following aircraft.
