Additional Changes to Accommodate UL 2586

For a number of years, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) has been advocating a particular safety requirement for automatic fuel nozzle valves that have a hold-open latching device, yet lack the ability to automatically unlatch when the dispenser shuts off. This can become a serious safety issue if these nozzles remain latched open when the dispenser is activated and accidentally discharges gas.

A Safety Precaution

To address this safety issue, UL 2586 will now require that all nozzles must either be pressure-activated or come equipped with an interlock device if they also have a hold-open device. The change in UL safety standards could affect as many as 30 percent of fuel dispensing operations which do not currently provide nozzles with no pressure-no flow devices. Those operations must come to terms with the reality that nozzles without pressure activation or an interlock device can no longer be used with a hold-open clip and maintain a UL listing.

Top Quality Nozzles

Husky Corporation is available to answer any questions that arise concerning the new UL safety standards affecting fueling products. We understand these changes will affect your operations. The updates to UL 2586 will fully come into effect on April 30, 2015. The fueling products produced under this stringent standard will be even safer than in the past and of the highest quality.
