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.
Franklin Fueling Systems is on a tear at the moment as they launch new products and now a line of products under the Cable TightTM brand. The Cable TightTM wire management system boasts the ability to provide a true watertight end-to-end solution for electrical, sensor, and data wire management. Like Franklin’s UPP products, it is an electrofusion welding installation process that creates one seamless system from the HDPE-constructed electrical conduit, entry seals to sumps.
Highly Flexible, Highly Durable
Available in 3/4″ and 1″ in rolls of 1000′ and 1500′ coils, Cable TightTM ‘s highly durable and corrosion resistant materials won’t crack if bent, shatter if hit with a tool or stepped on in cold weather installations after it’s been laid out on a busy job site.
Along with a plethora of configurations, options, tools and information, you’ll find everything you need to get the job done in nearly the same time it takes to install PVC conduit. Franklin has not only created a Cable Tight System website that includes videos and downloads but you can also find Cable Tight under the new Wire Management section of the Franklin Fueling website.
Check out the Cable TightTM overview and installation videos:
Check out this new installation guide video from Franklin’s FFS Pro University, focusing on electrofusion welding for UPP piping, going through the entire process, including measuring, cutting, scraping, cleaning, marking, clamping, welding, and cooling:

OPW has introduced a new fiberglass wide access dispenser sump; theDSF-1741C is for larger Wayne Helix 5000 Model dispensers.
The many features and benefits of this sump include:
Conduitless Design: The fiberglass base and metal cap and frame are designed to direct conduit into the dispenser along the side of the sump to avoid requiring additional entry boot penetrations
Multi-Product Flexibility: The wide sump surface area is designed to accommodate up to 4 product lines into the sump
Structural Integrity:Engineered with thick side walls to withstand backfill and high water table forces. Precise glass and resin metering throughout the molding process ensures material consistency and maximizes the strength-to-weight ratio
Smooth Sealing Surfaces for Leak-Tight Sump Entry Fittings: Our fully enclosed molding manufacturing method produces a uniform wall thickness while eliminating air entrapment. The result is a flat, smooth finish, both inside and out, which provides leak-tight pipe entries

As if winters weren’t bad enough with the cold, snow and flu, now a snow plow comes along to turn your station’s manhole covers and spill lids into flying saucers or a pile of scrap. Either way, a sizable hole in the middle of your station’s lot does nobody any good.
But not to worry!
The Kennedy CompanySTOCKS a wide variety of replacement covers and we can even have them custom-made for those hard to find and/or obsolete manholes and spills. And just because you can’t find it on our site, doesn’t mean we don’t have it or can’t get it so by all means, please give us a call for those hard to find covers, lids or any of your other service station and refueling location needs!
We carry ever major brand with many sitting on our shelves. We also deal with several manufacturers capable of fabricating replacements for those very old, obsolete manholes no longer supported by the manufacturer.
Okay, so it’s not likely a plow will wipe out tank sump covers underground (that requires a special kinda cowboy behind the wheel of a plow truck!) but winters are tough on all equipment and with so many compliance laws and regulations, containment failures are not an option so check out some of the available retrofit tank sump lids currently on the market.
