When reviewing the products, the committee takes into account their level of technology, their utilitarian and aesthetic qualities, and their overall novelty. The OPW AVANCE Fueling Nozzle and Swivel Breakaway system was selected by the committee because of the following design features: 

  • Tight, fail-safe closing capability, which results in a cleaner forecourt
  • Nozzle’s Safety Cap, which helps to protect both the consumer and the environment
  • Ability to customize the nozzle’s color scheme according to operator preference
  • Innovative ball/socket design of swivel breakaway that delivers superior convenience and safety
