Husky Corporation’s Recommendations for Hanging Hardware Inspection After a Flood

Husky LogoFuel dispensing equipment that is submerged during a flood can become damaged. After the water has receded, it is important to thoroughly inspect the equipment to make sure it will operate safely. Husky Corporation would like to offer Flooded Pumpsome recommendations.

A fueling site that has equipment that has been partially or entirely submerged should inspect and evaluate their equipment.

Hoses (whip and curb) should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the hose if there is corrosion on the fittings. Replace the hose if there are cracks, delamination, kinks, tears or punctures.

Breakaways and combos should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the breakaway if there is corrosion around where the male is inserted into the sleeve. Mag-Breaks® should be separated and inspected for any corrosion or debris and then reconnected.

Swivels should be cleaned and inspected. Replace the swivel if there is corrosion in or around any of the joints. Replace if the swivel doesn’t rotate freely or the rotation feels gritty.

Nozzles should be replaced if they have been partially or completely submerged. Any that have not been underwater should be cleaned and inspected. If there is debris or damage inside the spout or vent tube opening, the nozzle should be replaced.

Flooded Pump 2-When checking the equipment by flowing fuel, if it is apparent there has been water inside the hose or nozzle, replace all the hanging hardware.

For any equipment that wasn’t replaced, it is recommended to re-evaluate the equipment every month to inspect for any flood related damage or corrosion that may have grown over time.
