Effective July 3, 2019,Franklin Fueling Systems is discontinuing the sale of HEALY™ 800 Series Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) nozzles in the United States.
The HEALY™ 800 Series ORVR nozzle was designed and primarily sold in Texas to support the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s requirement for Stage II vapor recovery (VR) with ORVR capability. Texas has ended the requirement for Stage II Vapor Recovery, and the deadline for replacing Stage II hanging hardware with conventional industry standard hanging hardware was August 8, 2018.
Please contact us at 1.800.451.4021 if you need assistance with transitioning to another vapor recovery nozzle option from the HEALY™ 800 Series ORVR Nozzle.
Additionally, Franklin Fueling Systems will be discontinuing the 800 Core Return Program at this time.
OPWis proud to introduce the all-new OPW 14 Series family of diesel- and gasoline-dispensing nozzles, engineered to deliver a cleaner fueling experience. The new OPW 14 Series family of nozzles feature patented diesel-capture spout technology for diesel nozzles and, free-draining, true dripless-spout technology for conventional fueling nozzles.
The initial rollout of the 14 Series family is comprised of the following two nozzles:
Fuel 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 some 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 combosshould 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.
-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.
Why even sell nitrogen at a gas pump, you may ask?
Because there is this new “inflation” wave (quite literally) that has hit some gas stations across the United States… a wave where car owners are inflating their tires with nitrogen gas, instead of air.
Franklin Fueling is pleased to announce the release of their new swivel and fixed fittings for their popular Flex-Ing™ brand fueling hose. These completely re-designed fittings come standard on all Hardwall, Softwall, Marina, and Cold-Weather hoses.
New Swivel Fitting Construction
Insert (Nickel plated steel with chrome flash finish)
Nut & fixed fitting (AL chrome conversion coated)
Front bushing (injection modeled Acetal)
Rear bushing (injection molded Acetal)
Conductive spring (302 tempered stainless steel)
The new nickel-plated steel fittings now include a chrome flash finish. This additional layer of provides further protection against rust and accelerated wear.
With the new design, the swivel fitting insert (1) features a lip (2) that sits outside of the swivel nut (3). This keeps the fitting body (4) securely in place, resisting pull-out from the hose ferrule (5).
These new fittings have already begun shipping on new Hardwall, Softwall, Marina, and Cold-Weather hoses. Please note there are no changes in pricing with these enhanced new standard fittings.
