The service will be conducted by fully trained and safety certified Mid-Valley Supply technicians and supported by expert fuel and data analysis and comprehensive reporting by Leighton O’Brien’s highly qualified analysts. Leighton O’Brien President, Jeff Davis said: “The partnership will enable Mid-Valley Supply customers to resolve water and fuel quality issues such as water intrusion, malfunctioning dispensers, submersible pumps, automatic tank gauges, blocked filters, bacterial growth, diesel bugs and phase separation. Unlike other companies, our patented design and three stage fuel cleaning process sweeps the entire tank floor to remove sludge, sediment and free phase water from the tank while minimizing the effect of suspending these items into the fuel. Our stage two process polishes the fuel and stage three returns the customers’ product to the tank and reduces waste disposal costs. Our patented fuel cleaning and polishing returns the customers’ fuel to pristine quality while quantifying the waste and contamination removed from sites to assist our customers with inventory reconciliation adjustments.” Oasis and Elaflex team up ELAFLEX HIBY Tanktechnik has recently acquired a major stake in Oasis Engineering Ltd, New Zealand.

Custom KPS piping reduces build times for UK wholesaler A leading membership-only wholesaler approached OPW to provide an easy to install, reliable fuel piping solution specifically adapted to their station configuration. Safety during and after installation were of utmost importance. With a distance of 10m between pump islands, if the installer had used traditional 5.8m piping, a welding socket in the middle would have been required, adding cost and time to the install. Where junctions were required, speed and safety were of paramount priority. In case of collision with or fire at one of the dispensers once the station was completed, a solution to cut off fuel flow was also required. At the installer’s request, OPW manufactured and supplied 10m lengths of 75/63mm KPS piping to run between the dispensers instead of the standard 5.8m lengths, allowing a faster more efficient installation (KPS pipe is also available in coils). Where connections are required, compact KPS fittings weld both walls of a double wall pipe simultaneously, again reducing installation time. Conductive double wall piping ensures safety in the eventuality of sparks or leaks. 10m lengths of custom 75/63mm KPS straight pipe allowed fast installation without need for a welding socket in middle OPW 10 series emergency shut-off valves were installed on fuel supply lines beneath dispensers at grade level to minimize hazards associated with collision or fire at the dispenser. If the dispenser is pulled over or dislodged by collision, the top of the valve breaks off at the integral shear groove, activating poppets and shutting off the flow of fuel. The wholesaler is now rolling out KPS piping and OPW shear valves as standard across all their sites.
