OPW, a Dover company and a global leader in fluid-handling solutions, is proud to announce the release and availability of the new 14C Diesel Capture Technology Nozzle, part of the new 14 Series of cleaner-fueling nozzles introduced by OPW. The 14 Series cleaner fueling nozzles have been designed to deliver the cleanest and greenest diesel-fueling customer experience in the industry.
The 14C nozzle sets a new consumer standard and expectation in diesel fueling with the introduction of its patented diesel-capture technology. At the conclusion of the diesel-fueling process, any excess diesel fuel that remains on the spout will migrate back to the capture device. This excess diesel fuel is fully secured in the diesel-capture chamber until the next fueling cycle begins when a venturi built in to the chamber is activated to introduce the captured diesel fuel back into the fuel stream. The result is a cleaner fueling nozzle and an overall cleaner fueling site that is more appealing to customers.
“Fueling with diesel can be a very dirty experience and, over time, can tarnish a retailer’s reputation. The new OPW 14C is the industry’s cleanest diesel-fueling nozzle and solves the issue of a messy fueling experience,” said Ed Kammerer, Director of Marketing and Global Product Strategy for OPW Retail Fueling. “The patented diesel-capture device ensures that marketers can be confident their customers will have a cleaner fueling experience – by keeping excess diesel fuel off their hands, clothes, shoes, vehicle, nozzle, dispenser and the ground. This nozzle truly defines what’s next in clean-diesel fueling!”
Other features of the 14C nozzle include no-pressure/no-flow nozzle-activation technology and a FlowLock™ system that allows the nozzle to shut off if it should fall out of the vehicle during fueling. Accu-Stop® to-the-penny Flow Control Technology ensures accurate fueling volumes and a one-finger hold-open clip makes it easy to set the flow rate. The 14C nozzle is cULus-listed, has been cycle-tested for more than one million use cycles, has a durable Duratuff® level guard that won’t scratch the vehicle and two-piece NEWGARD® Hand Insulator that is the industry’s most attractive and comfortable to use.
