OPW 21Gv ORVR Nozzle Approved for Use By Environmental Departments from Georgia & Maine

By OPW | Jul 21, 2009

CINCINNATI, OHIO – July 21, 2009 – OPW Fueling Components, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and the global leader in commercial and retail fueling equipment, is proud to announce that the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) and Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Air Quality have each approved the OPW 21Gv™ ORVR Nozzle for use at existing Stage II Vapor Recovery installations in those states. Prior to these latest approvals, the States of Texas and Wisconsin had already approved the 21Gv.

The Georgia EPD also recognized that the OPW 21Gv nozzles are an "improved design" that will eliminate activation of the vacuum assist when refueling vehicles equipped with on-board refueling vapor recovery. This design reduces the amount of air ingested into the vapor-recovery system, which results in less fugitive emissions from the stationary storage tanks that are located at gasoline-dispensing facilities.

Specifically, the 21Gv has been approved for use with the following Stage II Vapor Recovery systems:

  • Dresser Wayne® WayneVAC—G-70-153 (latest), G-70-199 (previous)
  • Gilbarco® VaporVac®—G-70-150 (latest), G-70-199 (previous)
  • Tokheim MaxVac—G-70-154 (latest), G-70-199 (previous)

"The 21Gv makes becoming ORVR-compliant significantly more affordable and easy for all marketers," said Brandon Grote, OPW-FC Product Manager. "As such, we are extremely pleased that the States of Georgia and Maine, after a thorough review, have each approved the 21Gv for use at its existing Stage II sites."

OPW introduced its 21Gv ORVR nozzles to the market in April of this year. Promoted as a 21st-century innovation for a cleaner, greener world, the 21Gv incorporates a patent-pending on-board refueling canister-sensing device and standard M34 inverted coaxial inlet threads so it can be used with the majority of certified vapor-recovery systems and hanging hardware. When the nozzle senses an ORVR canister on a vehicle being fueled, the nozzle automatically shuts off the vapor flow to significantly reduce air ingestion into the underground storage tank. This prevents excess tank pressurization and excess emissions from being vented into the atmosphere.
