OPW Launches Expanded Line of CARB/EVR Approved Phase 1 Vapor Recovery E85 UST Products

By OPW | Apr 01, 2014

CINCINNATI, OH USA – OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and the global leader in fluid-handling solutions, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its product offering of CARB/EVR approved Phase 1 Vapor Recovery E85 Underground Storage Tank (UST) equipment. These products – which have received Phase 1 Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) System certification from the California Air Resource Board (CARB) for use with E85 – have been specifically designed to provide OPW customers with a comprehensive choice of UST equipment that eliminate the risks and material-compatibility concerns associated with E85. 

“OPW is proud to be expanding our product line of UST equipment to now include products that are completely compatible for use with E85,” said Matt Lauber, OPW Project Manager. “This is just another example of OPW’s commitment to provide products that enable the safest, most reliable and environmentally-responsible fueling operations in the industry.”

Due to phase separation (mixing with water), the storage and distribution of E85 can have a significant adverse effect on UST system components. When phase separation occurs, it causes two liquid layers to form in the tank. The lower layer contains water and ethanol while the upper layer is the petroleum fuel with a small amount of ethanol. Because this blend of ethanol and water increases the risk of corrosion, many traditional materials utilized in the past may not be compatible with E85. For this reason, it is extremely important that tank owners only install system components that are manufactured with materials that are compatible with E85. 

Recognizing the importance of providing tank owners with this equipment, OPW now provides the most complete line of E85-compatible UST equipment available on the market today. Specifically, the following OPW UST products have been approved for use with E85:

• 71SOM-412C Overfill Prevention Valve

• 61VSA-MA Vapor Recovery Swivel Adaptor

• 61SALP-MA Fill Swivel Adaptor

• 71JSK-44MA Jack Screw Kit

• 71JSK-4RMT Remote Fill Jack Screw Kit

• 62M-MA Monitoring Cap

• 61T-SS-0412/0417 Drop Tubes

• 634TT-EVR & 634LPC Fill Caps

• FSA-400/400-S Face Seal Adaptors
