Rhine Air Inc. - Fuel Tank Safety and Maintenance

Aviation Equipment Int'l Inc. is the Commercial and Export Manufacturers’ Representative and Exclusive Distributor for all Rhine Air Inc. Aircraft Fuel Tank Entry Support Equipment.  Rhine Air has specialized in the design and manufacture of Aircraft Fuel Tank (Confined-Space) Support Equipment for over 25 years. The Ventilation and Respiratory Protection Systems are the only products on the market specifically designed for aircraft fuel tank inspection and repair entry requirements. Today all branches of the U.S. Military, NATO Forces, Major Airframe OEMS, MRO’s, and Commercial Airlines recommend and use these Systems.
Intrinsically Safe and User-Friendly systems are available in Pneumatic Driven (Sparkless) or Electric Driven (Explosion-Proof) versions. Both Ventilation and Respiratory Protection Equipment are available as individual components, System Configurations, and Mobility/Storage Kits. We believe there is a fundamental design advantage with the Rhine Air Product that will safeguard worker safety, as well as expedite fuel tank entry and repair turnover.
