Working with the Airbus fuel systems engineers at Filton Bristol, Integ have supplied specialised tanks, test chambers and rigs to assist the development of fuel systems for the A380 and other aircraft.
For altitude simulation, the mainly rectangular tanks require special design for full vacuum and sub zero temperatures of -57 degrees centigrade. Integ have designed these tanks using in house stress analysis software verified by 3rd Party test and certification.
Some examples include a full A380 worth of fuel tanks assembled at Kemble Airfield for surge testing on refuelling. Integ also designed and supplied the bulk fuel tanks
