The Time-Tested Standard for Fueling and Defueling Aircraft
JacRiser platforms that refuel commercial aircraft require top performance and reliability to meet the demands of unrelenting schedules. A key component is the hose that connects the moving platform to an aircraft fueling vehicle. Aviation ground fuel handlers need a durable hose that is easy to bend, install, and handle through tens of thousands of cycles.

Hewitt 5500 JacRiser: Fueling/Defueling Hose

Hewitt offers a state-of-the art solution to carry aviation fuel to these movable service platforms and lift decks. The 5500 Premium JacRiser meets the challenge with unmatched strength and flexibility, passing tests that replicated more than 124,000 cycles. Other JacRiser hose models fail at just 64,000 cycles of the same test. It also an option for other applications where flexible hose is needed to load or unload petroleum products.
The key is high quality construction that includes a black nitrile synthetic rubber tube and neoprene static dissipating/static conductive synthetic rubber cover. Hewitt’s 5500 Premium JacRiser is reinforced with spiral-plied synthetic fiber and a nylon breaker with dual wire helix construction.
Hewitt 5500 JacRiser hose is available in two, three, and four inch diameters. It can be used with jet fuel, Avgas, or any other petroleum product and can be used at fuel farms and docks where high volume operations demand a hose that is rugged, reliable and flexible. Hewitt 5500 JacRiser is also suitable for full vacuum services.

Regardless of the application, it is always good practice to routinely inspect aviation fueling hose assemblies to assure continued safe operation. Contact Hewitt, a division of Husky Corporation, for assistance with aviation fueling products and services.
