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

A Word From Universal Valve About Spill Prevention

Universal Spill PreventionThe following has been reproduced from Universal Valve email dated 12/15/2016

Unfortunately, environmental Hazards are located all over the forecourt, not just the fill area. By using a spill container, we can protect the environment at the fill location. But what about all the other tank risers, and access points? In a perfect world, every tank fill situation will go as planned and not a drop of fuel will hit the environment. Yet history shows that proper planning is needed for when things do not go as planned.

The new EPA rules help make sure sites are checked and operated properly. But what happens when a tank is overfilled and the perfect storm arises? There are other access points to contend with that could leak petroleum directly into the environment. Here are three common tank access risers that need attention.Universal Valve 70C Spill Container

  • Vapor recovery risers. Typically, a spill container with no drain is the ideal solution. Eliminating the drain is ideal. There is less of a chance of water entering the tank with no drain.
    • Check Out Universal Spills such as the 70C-1212

 

 

  • Tank Monitoring risers. Standard spill containers are not the ideal solution here. Using a tank monitoring spill container offers electrical conduit hookups while creating water tight solutions for incoming ground water and environmental protection from tank overfills.

 

 

 

 

  • Universal JH69-4 Stick Port FlapperStick Port Risers. Standard spill containers work well here. Like the vapor recovery container no need for a drain valve. Be sure to use a cap and adapter on the riser that is clearly marked “DO NOT FILL”. Installing a stick port flapper helps reduce vapors through the riser when removing the cap.

 

 

 

 

  • Be sure to mark all of these spill containers clearly for their purpose. Marking the lids is not the only place you’d want to mark the container. Adding a concrete marker next to the unit is a safe bet. It eliminates the problem of the lids being crossed up and/or replaced with a non-marked lid.
