OPW will be phasing out the FlexWorks® TSMF/TSDF tank sump series at the end of August 2018 to make way for their latest line of tank sumps.
From the engineering labs of FLEXWORKS® and FIBRELITE, OPW has made the best even better. Meet the newest member of the FibreTite Family of sumps, the most watertight sumps on the market today.
Designed to meet all the new 2018 EPA UST regulations
OPW FibreTite tank sumps function as a liquid-tight isolation container providing secondary containment for tank fittings valves, pumps and FlexWorks® or Fiberglass pipe fittings.
FibreTite provides surface access to the tank itself, as well as a clean and dry environment for future service and maintenance. The height-adjustable top-hat accommodates different tank bury depths.
At this time, OPW offers 10 different configurations of the FibreTite tank sump. You can get the FibreTite tank sump in either a 42″ or 48″ diameter with a 33″ or 37″ diameter lid and a height range of 33.5″ to 53″. The sump can be configured with either a solid bottom or collar mount design.
Additional RK-5000 resin kits(sold separately) are required to attach the top hat and collar ring. The additional quantities needed will depend on the FibreTite tank sump configuration you purchase.
The Kennedy Company’s most popular selling TSMF/TSDF series tank sump at this time is the TSMF-4536 medium burial version and will be directly replaced with the FibreTite FTSM-4233CR medium burial fiberglass tank sump with collar ring mount, which can be found by clicking here.

Around the time the Kennedy Company opened our doors in 1930, we also became aGilbarcodistributor. Gilbarco is and has been one of our anchor lines since we first partnered with them. Today, we are their oldestdistributor in the nation!
In the decades since, the John W. Kennedy Company has gone on to become one of the largest stocking Gilbarco and petroleum equipment distributors in the nation. Not only do we have thousands of Gilbarco parts on hand with many decades of knowledge, we are home to what Gilbarco has called the premier Gilbarco training facility nationwide, training those who want to become authorized Gilbarco service technicians. We also provide road service to many of our Gilbarco customers located in the New England area.
And while the Kennedy Company has had its share of firsts with them, Gilbarco has also had their share of firsts since they opened shop with some of the highlights being:
the first to introduce a measuring gasoline pump in 1911
the first electric meter pump in 1930
the first to introduce the multi-product dispenser in the mid 1970’s.
Gilbarco continues to be innovators in fuel technology, offering the best solutions:
