OPW Introduces the ElectroTite Tank Sump – No Drill DRY Sump Technology

OPW ElectroTite - Is your site underwater? OPW is proud to introduce their newest Watertight Wonder, the ElectroTite Tank Sump

Developed in the collaborative engineering labs of FlexWorks and Fibrelite, OPW’s latest tank sump innovation is the most watertight system on the planet and features no drill dry sump technology. The ElectroTite ships factory-installed with conduit ports and an electrical wiring box, which eliminates tank sump leak points at site installation.

By becoming conduit-entry-fitting-free, the market’s most watertight tank sump is now the most innovative. Extremely versatile, the ElectroTite is available in a wide variety of models to accommodate virtually any tank sump application.

A few of the many innovative features and benefits include:

  • Sealed conduit threads on outside of sump – enter above water table.
  • UL-Listed, explosion-proof junction box allows space to reroute. communication wires and loop additional sensors without entering sump. Junction box is also used for wiring seal off.
  • The “Kwik Wire” junction box is partitioned and allows for high voltage and sensor wires in same box.
  • Reduces the number of entry and leak points into sump.

In the meantime, check out the ElectroTite resources below:

OPW Introduces New Fiberglass Wide Access Dispenser Sump

OPW 125 Years

OPW  has introduced a new fiberglass wide access dispenser sump; the DSF-1741C is  for larger Wayne Helix 5000 Model dispensers.

 

 

The many features and benefits of this sump include:OPW_DSF-1741C

  • 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

Sump Dimensions & Price

COVER ME! Your One-Stop Shop for Replacement Covers & Lids

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 Company STOCKS 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!

 

manholelids Manhole Covers

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.

Replacement Spill Covers

Spill Covers

Sealed, locking, different colors;  whatever your configuration is, if we don’t have it, we can get it!

Tank Sump Retrofit Covers

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.
