California Air Quality Regulators Approve EVR Certification for Husky Vacuum Assist Swivel and Safe-T-Breaks

CARB Action Provides New Options for Half of California’s Fueling Locations 

PACIFIC, MO (June 23, 2022) – Three Husky Corporation products for vacuum-assist  Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) systems, the style used by approximately half of California’s gasoline fueling stations, received approval by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).


The products passed rigorous testing protocols to receive EVR certification according to CARB CP-201. EVR standards that govern California, which is by far the largest vehicle market in the United States, set forth strict requirements to keep gasoline vapors from escaping into the air at gas stations.

“The certifications mean Husky is back in vapor recovery business in California,” said Husky Corporation President Grenville Sutcliffe. “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.”

“These products are exceptional new alternatives for gasoline fueling customers in California and elsewhere who need to meet EVR requirements,” said Husky Corporation California Sales Manager Teddy Sutcliffe. “Everyone at Husky is excited to begin manufacturing these products for these important markets.”

Modifications to Existing Husky Products Deliver CARB EVR approval 

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 Husky Product Design Engineer Ted Cosgrove.

Husky’s VR Swivel fills a need in a market with few alternatives for EVR multi-plane swivels, which reduce wear and tear on the fueling hose and hanging hardware compared to inline swivels. Husky MAGBREAK Safe-T-Break and Vacuum Assist STB models are much easier to easy to install, and the reconnectable versions are infinitely easier to reconnect, than currently available alternatives.
