Gas Nozzles Ready for Enhanced Ethanol Blends
Underwriter Laboratories Inc. (UL) has tightened up safety standards for fueling nozzle valves to account for the chemical effects of ethanol on construction, materials, and performance. UL 842, the safety standard long-affecting hanging hardware, will no longer be used for nozzle valves. Instead, UL 2586 will apply to fueling nozzle valves that dispense gasoline with up to 10% ethanol (E10) and UL 2586A will be in place for nozzles dispensing up to E85. 
Husky Corporation has received listing under UL 2586 for the following nozzles and nozzle families Product details are available at http://www.husky.com/husky/
• Husky X family of fuel nozzles 
• Husky VIII family of fuel nozzles 
• Husky 1A / 1HS / 1GS 
• Husky V34 
“The new standards seek to make sure the equipment is up to par with the introduction of increased ethanol content in various gasoline blends,” said Rob Brown, Husky Corporation’s Engineering Manager, in a recent edition of the PEI Journal. 
UL said the practice of permitting exceptions to testing requirements was never written into UL 842. However, the standards written for fueling nozzle valves in UL 2586 specifically prohibit exceptions testing.
