Aircraft Fuel Tank Repairs by MPI 24/7 Experts

Aircraft fuel tank repairs are a critical aspect of maintaining the safety and efficiency of an aircraft. Fuel tanks are susceptible to various forms of damage, including corrosion, leaks, and structural issues. These problems can lead to reduced fuel efficiency, increased maintenance costs, and even catastrophic failure if not addressed promptly and effectively.

That’s where the experts at MPI 24/7 come in. With our extensive experience and expertise in aircraft fuel tank repairs, we’re well-equipped to handle any fuel tank issue that may arise. 


One of the most common issues that aircraft fuel tanks face is corrosion. Corrosion can occur due to many factors, such as exposure to moisture, chemicals, and other environmental elements. To address this issue, experts at MPI 24/7 utilise a technique called corrosion removal and treatment. This process involves the removal of any corroded material from the fuel tank, followed by the application of a protective coating to prevent future corrosion. This coating is typically composed of a corrosion-resistant material which provides a durable and long-lasting barrier against further corrosion.


Another common issue that can arise in aircraft fuel tanks is leaks. Leaks can occur for various reasons, including damage to the tank’s structure, faulty seals, or even simple wear and tear. To address this issue, we employ a technique called leak detection and repair. This process involves the use of specialised equipment to locate the source of the leak, followed by the application of a suitable repair method. This may involve the use of sealants, patches, or even the replacement of damaged components, depending on the severity and location of the leak.

Structural Integrity

In some cases, the structural integrity of an aircraft fuel tank may be compromised due to damage or wear. This can lead to a variety of issues, including reduced fuel capacity, increased risk of leaks, and even the potential for catastrophic failure. To address this issue, our experts perform an assessment of the fuel tank’s structural integrity, followed by the implementation of appropriate repair methods. This may include the reinforcement of weakened areas, the replacement of damaged components, or even the complete overhaul of the fuel tank, depending on the severity of the issue.

Preventative Maintenance

In addition to these repair techniques, MPI 24/7 also employ a variety of preventive maintenance measures to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of aircraft fuel tanks. This includes regular inspections, cleaning, and the application of protective coatings to prevent issues such as corrosion and leaks from occurring in the first place. 

By taking a proactive approach to fuel tank maintenance, the experts at MPI 24/7 can help to extend the lifespan of an aircraft’s fuel tank and reduce the likelihood of costly repairs being required in the future.
