Most parents with children have been faced at one time or another with the daunting task of assembling a new toy, poring over the instructions and making sure that no parts are missed. Now, imagine building that toy if all of the different parts were not packaged in a kit and had to be acquired from many different sources.
Now you know how it can feel to outfit a retail fueling site – a task on a much grander and more complicated scale.
Individually identifying and selecting the best underground storage tank (UST) equipment, piping and containment systems and dispensing equipment – which all must work in complete harmony to ensure a safe and reliable fueling system – is a daunting task and one that today’s time-strapped fuel site operators are often incapable of tackling by themselves.
With that in mind, the manufacturers of forecourt fuel storage and dispensing equipment and systems have worked to develop completely synergistic fueling systems rather than just a catalog of components. A perfect example of this is the “Station In A Box” concept from OPW Retail Fueling. The idea is to offer an integrated approach to outfitting a fueling site via plug-and-play designs where every component is specially constructed to work in unison with others in order to ensure end-to-end fueling system integrity.
Specifically, this is what OPW offers in its “Station In A Box” program:
- UST Equipment: OPW offers the retail fueling industry’s widest selection of UST equipment, all of which is designed to protect the environment from harmful and dangerous fuel leaks or spills. The UST equipment family includes complete lines of manholes, multiports, spill containers, overfill prevention valves, emergency/vapor shear valves and vacuum vents.
- Piping & Containment Systems: The Loop System of piping and containment systems is a completely integrated fuel transfer and containment system. It has been designed to offer the highest level of fuel dispensing performance, installation efficiency and spill containment protection. The Loop System solution consists of highly engineered components that are designed to operate in unison to ensure long-term system integrity and performance, with the flexibility to meet the needs of every unique underground piping system.
- Dispensing Equipment: Commonly called “hanging hardware,” OPW offers an extensive array of conventional, vacuum-assist, vapor recovery and manual fuel nozzles, along with complete lines of swivels, breakaways and hoses.
