Three Husky Corporation products for vacuum-assist Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) systems, the style used by approximately half of California’s gasoline fueling stations, have received approval by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
The three products are:
- Husky Vapor Recovery Swivel featuring stainless steel ball bearings.
- Husky Vac Assist MAGBREAK Safe-T-Break.
- Husky Vacuum Assist Safe-T-Break in both reconnectable and non-reconnectable models.
“These certifications mean Husky is back in vapor recovery business in California,” said Grenville Sutcliffe, Husky Corporation president. “It also gives us access to other areas where CARB certification is a standard, including parts of Oregon and Washington. Mexico is another area using Stage II Vapor Recovery at gasoline stations, which we would be pleased to serve.”
The products received approval after passing testing protocols to receive EVR certification according to CARB CP-201. EVR standards that govern California set forth requirements to keep gasoline vapors from escaping into the air at gas stations.
“These products are exceptional new alternatives for gasoline fueling customers in California and elsewhere who need to meet EVR requirements,” said Teddy Sutcliffe, Husky Corporation California sales manager. “Everyone at Husky is excited to begin manufacturing these products for these important markets."
Husky engineers changed the thread configuration on three existing products to conform with current CARB EVR products. Nothing else on any of the products required modification.
“Everything on these products has worked perfectly for a long time in vapor recovery markets. But California uses 1 ¼” threads instead of M34 threads on vacuum assist systems. So, we changed our threads to match that. Otherwise, the product features are all the same,” said Ted Cosgrove, Husky Product Design engineer.
