The ZVF 50 nozzle takes fuelling to new heights

The ZVF 50 is a manual (non-automatic) high flow nozzle for over-wing and helicopter refuelling of JET and AVGAS fuels.

After several years of development and field tests Elaflex commenced deliveries to customers in March 2015. The different nozzle configurations will be on show at the forthcoming Inter Airport in Munich.

The ZVF 50 is in alignment with the requirements of the JIG document. The nozzle is of a modular design with several unique features and advantages. It impresses with its handling due to its ergonomic design and weighs just 2,7 kg. A full 2" bore ensures a low pressure-drop and high flow rate of up to 400 l/min. The sensitive flow control allows easy top up, even of small volumes. The comfortable lever re- quires a hold-open force of less than 75% by using the LeverAssist®.

The new screw-in-connection system enables an easy spout change without using tools or compro- mising safety. JET-spouts can also be rotated to a required position. Additionally, but on test, the opti- onal Push-Twist-Lock function for an even quicker spout change and strainer control.

Also available as LT versions (- 40 °C up to +55 °C).
