…Or everything you ever wanted to know about a fuel system but were afraid to ask…
Franklin Fueling Systems provides a rudimentary understanding of a fuel system and takes the complex orchestration of the entire system to break it down to the basics in this nicely animated video. This is a great learning tool to put in front of new people entering the industry to quickly get them up to speed on what happens underground or for those curious to learn and understand more about the entire system; whether they sell, install or service equipment or own / work at a gas station.

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.
To coincide with the release of their Industrial 19DEF nozzles, OPW is releasing a series of compatible DEF breakaways and swivels. The 19D series (the 19DB Reconnectable Swivel Breakaway, 19DHS Barbed Hose Swivel, and 19DS Single Plane Hose Swivel) can be used with either the NPT or BSPP threaded 19DEF nozzles. The 19D series breakaways and swivels are manufactured entirely out of stainless steel and other ISO22241 materials.
