Features improved on the TLS-450PLUS include:

Leak CertificationDigital Pressurized Line Leak Detection (DPLLD)

The line volume expansion of DPLLD for the TLS-450PLUS provides advanced line leak detection to meet the capacity of growing fuel sites, now certified up to 1,178 gallons of capacity. The DPLLD equipment performs a 3.0 gph line leak test following each dispense. With the proper software enhancement feature installed, the DPLLD equipment will also perform 0.2 and/or 0.1 gph line tests to meet your regulatory needs, eliminating the need for separate annual line leak testing.

AccuchartAccuChart™

Our third generation AccuChart™ utilizes enhanced geometric tank chart modeling for the TLS-450PLUS with optional restricted calibration range to perform calibration. Chart volumes are calculated using adjustable geometry parameters: diameter, capacity, end shape, tilt and probe offset. Completed charts are established more quickly and with higher accuracy from a limited amount of data.

Business Inventory ReconciliationBusiness Inventory Reconciliation (BIR)

BIR on the TLS-450PLUS has been enhanced for your custom reconciliation needs and meets federal, state, or local requirements. It includes automated reporting on:

  • Throughput thresholds

Verifone – VASC Field Service Bulletin: Secure Pump Pay & Smart Pump Access

VASC Field Service Bulletin

Verifone MX760 & MX700 Secure Pump PayOVERVIEW

Verifone announced in August 2014 that they entered an agreement with Gilbarco such that Gilbarco would become the integrator, distributor and service provider for all Verifone’s forecourt payment systems. Any pre-partnership commitments and agreements would continue to be honored in respect to Verifone’s Paymedia (Secure Pump Pay program).Verifone Smart Pump Access

During this time, Verifone’s new strategy with Gilbarco would be to continue to collaborate and engineer products sold under the Gilbarco sales channel. The current product is known as Flexpay IV and is exclusively available from Gilbarco for use with their model dispensers and retrofit kits.

Verifone stopped producing its Secure Pump Pay product line in July 2016 and existing inventory on- hand was used to fulfill existing contractual commitments. Beginning September 30th, 2019 only clients who are under existing contracts will receive support and repair from Verifone for their SPP devices. This includes the
Secure Pump Access (SPA) device.

Verifone’s mission is to deliver high-quality payment solutions based on powerful new technologies that lower your cost of ownership and enhance the efficiency of your operations. Verifone looks forward to helping you meet outdoor EMV and other increasingly complex regulatory, compliance and security requirements.

COMPLIANCE INFORMATION

Visa’s U.S. deadline for EMV for dispensers is currently set at October 1, 2020. Additionally, the Verifone SPP is certified either to the PCI 1.x or 2.x standard and both have now been succeeded by versions 3, 4, and 5. SPP PCI 1.x devices should be replaced as soon as feasible because of possible vulnerability based on the age of the device. These are primary reasons Verifone has been forced to phase out repair services for the SPP.

Learn more about Gilbarco’s FlexPay IV by click here or on the image below.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

You can contact us at 1.800.238.1225 to obtain a compatible solution to replace SPP equipment and choose a compatible EMV-enabled product. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or equipment needs to meet EMV requirements as well as any of your other refueling equipment needs. 

And please visit our online store where we have thousands of products ready to ship the same day (for orders received prior to 3PM Eastern Time) and what you can’t find, please call us at 1.800.238.1225 as we have access tens of thousands of products from hundreds of vendors.

5 Reasons Fuel-Site Water Intrusion Is Increasing

It is a pretty well known fact that most of the Earth’s surface is covered by water so to say it permeates our existence is an understatement.

While this liquid is essential to our existence, it also wreaks havoc on many man-made systems it comes in contact with and in our world of petroleum, it would be classified as a super villain!

And while our industry has been reacting to the havoc water causes for more than a century to develop better ways to keep it out of refueling systems, water intrusion has INCREASED in refueling systems!

Ed KammererThe following is an excerpt, written by Ed Kammerer that appeared in the September, 2018 edition of the Fuel Market News.  Ed is the Director of Global Product Management for OPW, based in Cincinnati, OH, USA. He can be reached at ed.kammerer@opwglobal.com. OPW is leading the way in fueling solutions and innovations worldwide. OPW delivers product excellence and the most comprehensive line of fueling equipment and services to retail and commercial fueling operations around the globe.

  • Changes In Fuel Chemistry
  • Changes In The Fuel Distribution Infrastructure
  • Installation Procedures

OPW is Waging War on Water Intrusion

By offering:

  • Composite Multiports with Watertight Lids and Covers
