OPW Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Products Receive California Air Resources Board Certification

By OPW | Sep 16, 2010

 CINCINNATI, OHIO – OPW Fueling Components, the company that is leading the way in retail and commercial fueling equipment innovation, is proud to announce that its Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) system is the first and only Phase I system in the industry to be certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The new CARB AST Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) regulation establishes limitations for hazardous air pollutants emitted from ASTs used at Gasoline Dispensing Facilities. The new standards and specifications cover standing loss control, Phase I deliveries into ASTs and Phase II deliveries into motor vehicles. The Phase I EVR requirements went into effect in July 2010.

“OPW is proud to be the first and only company to receive CARB certification on the new AST Phase I EVR regulation,” said Aldo Sucaldito, Product Manager for Above Ground Products.

“This is another example of OPW’s commitment to provide products that enable the safest, most reliable and environmentally-responsible fueling operations in the industry.”

Specifically, the following OPW AST products have allowed OPW to successfully meet the CARB AST Phase I EVR regulation:

  • 301 series Emergency Vent Valve
  • 61 FSTOP series Overfill Prevention Valve
  • 1611 and 1612 series Kamvalok Adaptors
  • 634B & 634BK Caps
  • 331 and 332 series Direct Fill Spill Containers
  • 61VSA Rotatable Swivel Adaptor
  • 1711T and 1711LPC Vapor Recovery Caps
  • 211-RMOT Remote Fill Spill Container
  • 200TG Tank Gauge
  • 144TA and 444TA Tank Alarms

A significant amount of hazardous air pollutants may be emitted during the loading of gasoline into ASTs. OPW Fueling Components has designed its AST products to successfully prevent these emissions.
