AUSTIN, Texas -- Dresser Wayne announced the availability of its New Ultra High Capacity (UHC) fuel dispenser models, enabling large commercial vehicles to spend less time at the pump and more time on the road.
With a maximum flow rate of 60 GPM (gallons per minute), the new Select UHC dispensers are available in a wide variety of models, including singles, single-product twins, two-product twins, single and twin satellites and a master/satellite combination unit. A new two-hose, single-sided version allows two grades or types of fuel to be offered at one fueling point, or allows for quicker refueling of trucks with twin saddle tanks on each side, the company reported.
Beta versions of the new Select UHC models have been well received. In January, California-based J.B. Dewar, Inc., a leading distributor of high quality fuel and lubricants, made Dresser Wayne’s Select UHC dispenser the centerpiece of a new unattended Pacific Pride commercial site in Paso Robles, Calif.
"Our goal was to get trucks in and out of the site as quickly as possible, and we didn’t have a lot of space to work with," said Ed Ward, maintenance manager for J.B. Dewar. "We designed the entire site around the dispenser that could deliver the most product -- and that's proven to be Dresser Wayne's Select UHC. It’s become the flagship of the station, the crown jewel of the site."
Truck drivers who visit the station are very pleased to be able to fill their tanks within three or four minutes, Ward said, and site sales have increased each month since the Dresser Wayne Select UHC dispenser was installed. Ward said the dispenser's easily-accessed filtration was also well-received by his customers.
"We’ve really liked the extra large filtration set up in the cabinet," said Ward. "It's well-positioned and easy to access for maintenance. Over all, the Dresser Wayne Select UHC has been a wonderful product for us. We haven't had any problems since we put it into service -- it's been bullet-proof."
Unique dual internal 40 GPM filters (80 GPM capacity) help maintain optimal flow performance while ensuring fuel purity -- a particular concern for vehicles with new high pressure diesel engines. The durable dispensers also utilize two field-proven components, a Liquid Controls M-5 high flow meter and Dresser Wayne's iGEM electronics platform, to help maximize efficiency, security and uptime.
Also standard in the model is an electronic calibration feature, user status display, electromechanical totalizer, display back-up, lighted brand panel and hinged doors for easy access.
