  • CUSTOMER ALERT - WA Supplied Aviation Drums

    2 October, 2015

    Customer Alert

    Product Quality - Potential breakdown of internal sealant in WA supplied Aviation Drums


    Date: 2 October 2015 

    From: Rob Mangan – Skyfuel Australia Pty Ltd


    A customer has alerted us to some particles which have been found in a recent batch of Jet A-1 drums supplied into the Kimberley.  The drums were acquired new from our established manufacturer in Perth and filled by Skyfuel in late September.

    In accordance with accepted QC practices, all drums are inspected prior to filling, sealed and an Aviation Release Note issued.  Drums that have any particulate contamination from the manufacturing process are rejected prior to filling. The drums that were despatched to the Kimberley showed no signs of contaminants.

    We believe the particles subsequently found in this batch of drums to be an excess of sealant used in the drum manufacturing process. This sealant is a latex based product known as “Darex” and is wedged and rolled between the lids and the sides of the drums. Darex is essentially a filler that assists in the compression sealing process (photo 1 attached).
