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.
