OPW Fueling Containment Systems Introduces a New Generation of Swivel Bolt-On Couplings

By OPW | Sep 10, 2010

Smithfield, North Carolina – OPW Fueling Containment Systems, a division of OPW Fueling Components, announced today that its revolutionary new SBC Swivel Bolt-On Double Wall Pipe Coupling is available for sale.

The new state of the art patent-pending technology OPW used in the design of the Swivel Bolt-On Coupling systems simplifies the interstitial connection process for FlexWorks Flexible Piping. Giving the users the same great features as a swage on double wall fitting, this new technology eliminates the need to trim back the secondary jacket—and eliminates rubber test boots.

OPW Fueling Containment Product Specialist, Gene Hunt states, "This state-of-the-art mechanical coupling incorporates permanent access ports to the pipe interstice for continuous interstitial monitoring as well as for rock solid system integrity testing during installation and at any time in the future to accommodate new monitoring and testing regulations. We are proud to bring this revolutionary new technology to the Marketplace."

This unique coupling, available in 1.5" size, comes equipped with numerous design features such as:

  • All Stainless Steel Wetted Surfaces
  • No Jacket Stripping
  • No Test Boots
  • Male NPT Thread allows this coupling to be used with standard plumbing Tees and Elbows
  • Provides quick and effective means to monitor or retest secondary containment
  • State-of-the-Art Clam Shell Interlock Design only available through OPW
  • Double O-Ring Swivel Design for easy and secure connections

OPW Fueling Containment Systems, located in Smithfield, North Carolina, designs and manufactures secondarily contained fuel delivery systems. OPW Fueling Containment Systems is well known for the industry's first totally integrated "Plug and Play" Underground Fueling System known as The Loop System™, which provides new solutions that offer a higher level of environmental protection, and a lower cost fuel delivery system.
