OPW, a Dover company and a global leader in nozzle design and manufacture for over 125 years, is proud to introduce the all-new 21 Series family of petrol, vapour recovery, diesel, and AdBlue dispensing nozzles. Designed with attractive European styling and refined ergonomic comfort, the 21 Series nozzle is expertly engineered to exceed ATEX and TUV safety standards.
“Combining form and function, the new OPW 21 Series nozzle gives you a true quality handshake with your customers, backed by world-renowned OPW quality” said Fred Hess, OPW’s EMEA Sales Director “providing much needed competition in the European nozzle market.”
OPW has been Defining What’s Next since they were founded in 1892 at the dawn of the petroleum age, helping to usher in modern transportation with the introduction of the Model 411 fuelling nozzle, an innovation that became the industry standard and changed how vehicles were refuelled around the world
Since that time, automobiles and the fuelling industry have dramatically evolved, and OPW has been a leader in the advancement of fuelling technology. From the 1950 invention and patent of the world’s first automatic shut-off nozzle that made fuelling safe and efficient for attendants, to the 1984 introduction of the first, patented no-pressure, no-flow 11B fuelling nozzle that made self-serve fuelling and pre-pay possible, to the 1991 introduction of the 11VAI, the first and patented inverted coaxial vapor recovery nozzle that helped protect the air that we breathe while making compliance transparent to the consumer, to the 2018 introduction of the 14 Series, the industry’s first third party approved dripless nozzle technology, OPW continues to set the industry standard for a clean and safe fuelling experience.
Today, one of the largest and most trusted fuelling nozzle brands in the world Define What’s Next with an all new European style nozzle, the 21 Series.
The 21 Series nozzle is already receiving praise for its form and function.
“We are very happy with the 21 Series nozzle which gives us and our customers choice, independence and opportunities” said Dimitar Zlatarev, CEO of [OPW distributor] Sisco-M Ltd. Bulgaria’s largest supplier of gas station equipment. “Through SisCo-M Ltd. Bulgaria is one of the first countries to implement the presentation and installation of the new OPW 21 Series nozzles and swivels.
