Phase Separation and What it Means for You

VeederRoot_logo

Detect_Phase_SeparationWith over 90% of U.S. gas stations blending gasoline with ethanol, an important thing to consider when maintaining fuel tanks at your station is Phase Separation.  Phase Separation occurs when ethanol absorbs water and separates from the gasoline , sinking to the bottom of the tank.  Due to its lighter density, it can remain undetected by a traditional water float and may end up being pumped directly into customers’ vehicles, which can lead to damages you will be held liable for.  If left unaddressed for too long, the costs and consequences of Phase Separation could lead to serious damage to your reputation and business.

The best way to prevent these issues from arising is constant, diligent tank monitoring which will allow for early detection.  Veeder-Root offers the Phase-Two Separation Float, which replaces a traditional gasoline float kit and detects both water and phase separation in your tanks.

For more information on Phase Separation, read this article on Veeder-Root’s Fueling Solutions blog here.

When Simple Energy of West Lebanon, NH was looking to expand their business to become their own bulk-storage facility with the latest technology to monitor at the rack, distribute and track inventory to not just Simple Energy’s fleet but to other commercial fleet customers Simple Energy was looking to attract as they expanded, they turned to Brian Devereaux, Vermont Sales Representative of the John W. Kennedy Company to do the job.  Brian’s biggest concern was not just the simplicity of the installation process but the simplicity of using, maintaining and expanding the the system as well its reliability on a day to day basis.

As Brian stated, “The reason we went with OPW equipment was maximum compatibility and seamless integration. With these integrated systems from OPW, Simple Energy would be able to control its fuel inventory in real time and streamline fueling operations overall.”

Omntec Delivery Defender Lite Operation

Have a look at this video from Omntec, where NE District Manager Bob Hyatt demonstrates the practical benefits of their new Delivery Defender Lite (DDL) remote overfill alarm:

The DDL is universal, and can connect to just about any industry standard automatic tank gauge (ATG).  During operation, its sunlight-visible LED indicators let the driver and site know that it’s working, as well as letting them know which tank is currently being fueled to prevent drop errors.  The DDL can service up to five tanks, depending on the version (DDL1-DDL5), and also has a wireless option.  Click here to view a PDF with more information.

Stiction: What It Is and What You Can Do About It

FFS Pro Logoffs-vibration-motor

The Campus, the online technical news resource from Franklin Fueling’s FFS PRO University, has published an article detailing “stiction”, a term for static friction, between probes and floats and its effects on them.  When stiction occurs, it can cause the float to remain in its current position regardless of whether the product level rises or falls, thus leading to inaccurate readings and leak detection from the probe.  Stiction can occur when a probe is placed improperly or if the tank is tilted at an angle.  It can also be identified when tank levels remain constant for long periods followed by a sudden rapid increase or decrease in levels over a short period.

One of the easiest ways to prevent stiction is to ensure proper, plumb installation of probes, as well as keeping the probe and floats clean regularly.  Another solution, offered by Franklin themselves, is their new brand of INCON digital probes, which feature a vibration motor in the probe head which periodically activates to stave off stiction and mitigate its effects.
