How It Works
To reach dispense flow rates up to 1,200 LPM, higher capacity pumping equipment is needed in addition to larger fuel nozzles and receivers. In our fast fueling module we use 4” positive displacement pumps to ensure flowrates up to 1,200 LPM are provided at the nozzle. The flow from these pumps then passes through a filter vessel to provide clean fuel. Fuel is then metered using a weights and measures approved meter. 3” spring-loaded loading arms are provided to handle the high flow rate and reduce operator strain during refueling while also keeping the nozzle from coming into contact with the ground.
Increasing the size of fuel nozzles and receivers alone does not provide increased flow rates. Larger pumps, filters, meters and dispensing equipment are required to achieve flow rates up to 1,200 LPM.
By reducing refueling times, it allows the heavy equipment to spend more time hauling and less time being non-productive. With the equipment receiving fuel filtered to ISO 18/16/13 target fuel cleanliness, required by Tier 4 equipment, this prevents damage to equipment’s fuel system. Further decreasing potential equipment downtime.
Our skid also contains an air eliminator combined with weights and measures approved flow meters provide accurate fuel measurement. With spring-loaded loading arms, this enables ergonomic refueling operations to ensure safety and efficiency are maintained throughout the refueling process.
The FX1500 uses the same design and shut off system as the current FNBL 1.5” nozzle. The 2” design allows fuel rates to be increased up to 1,200 LPM (3 times faster than current standards). While this nozzle is designed to be used with the FloMax Non-Pressurized Shut Off system, the back pressure sensor provides redundant positive overfill protection.
The FRX fuel receiver uses the same design as the current 1.5” receiver and fits into the same 2” tank fitting. This allows an upgrade to the high flow nozzle and receiver without having to modify the fuel tank.
Non-Pressurized Shut Off is a positive overfill prevention system for the fuel tank on heavy equipment that does not pressurize the fuel tank during refueling.
A valve is installed between the tank and receiver using the existing 2’’ threaded connection on the tank. A pilot line from this valve allows a small flow through to a float on top of the tank. When the tank is full, the float blocks the flow from the pilot line. This causes the valve between the receiver and tank to close due to the back pressure built up in the pilot line and prevent further fuel from entering the tank.
Why do you need non-pressurized shut offs?
Current systems require the fuel tanks to be pressurized in order to trigger the fuel nozzle to shut off. Since these are atmospheric tanks which are not rated for pressure, there are risks of tank bulging, metal fatigue and potential failure. Current systems also allow the operator to override the nozzle closing. The Non-Pressurized Shutoff System on the other hand will not allow the operator to override the nozzle and overfill the tank.
Our Non-Pressurized Shut Off allows high speed refueling of equipment without having risk of the tank failing. This system ensures that the fuel nozzle may not be overridden which could cause overfilling the tank. Or even compromise the tanks integrity.
