Ever wondered what goes into installing a new fueling system and how the process unfolds?
The Red Jacket product team has put a lot of time into designing flexible pumping systems that provide the right level of flow to meet changing demand on site.
For busy owners, operators, and managers of multiple retail fuel sites it can be difficult to get a quick picture of what’s happening onsite. While you might be able to get a status update from your employees, the discussion requires that they stop serving customers and that they know the fuel inventory or active alarm status at a given moment. A clear understanding of your fueling network's current operating status is key for making sound business decisions.
There are more than 568,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) at 202,000 sites across the United States that are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) technical regulations. Of these, nearly 27% are not in significant operational compliance with either release prevention or leak detection requirements.
Many retail station managers that test their fuel flow do so during off-peak times. While testing fuel flow diligently is a necessary step for checking the performance of your equipment, it is important to remember that as more nozzles come online, a pump configuration becomes increasingly stressed. Fuel dispensers ensure that flow does not exceed the EPA’s regulated maximum flow rate of 10 gallons per minute, but once fuel flow falls below this maximum rate, your customers are taking longer to fill their vehicles than necessary.
