New Automatic Shut-off Nozzles Offer Solutions for Tighter Safety Standards

PACIFIC, MO – Solutions have arrived for the estimated 30 percent of fueling operations—including farm & commercial applications, truck and high-volume situations and a sizeable number of retail locations—affected by a big change in safety standards that took effect in mid-2015.

The new nozzle line was developed by Husky Corporation engineers, who modified an established nozzle platform with new components, new castings and a pressure-activation feature that permits the use of hold-open clips in order to comply with UL 2586.

When UL 2586 took effect, requiring that all nozzles must either be a pressure activated or be equipped with an interlock device if it is also equipped with a hold-open device, industry experts estimated that as many as 3 in 10 fuel nozzles did not comply with the new standard.

New Nozzles for Farm & Commercial – Truck & High Volume – Retail Applications

The three new Husky nozzle models now available with these features are:

  • 1AS – Pressure activated, automatic shut-off nozzle for full-service and self-service stations
  • 1GSS – Pressure activated, automatic shut-off nozzle for farm, 12V skid tanks, and commercial applications with multiple users
    Note: Farm and commercial applications that involve only one user do not require UL-certified nozzles. Contact Husky for more information and pricing.

  • 1HSS – Pressure activated, automatic shut-off nozzle for truck and high-volume applications

“There is nothing like this Husky product line on the market for farm and commercial use that is pressure activated with flow rates up to 25 gallons per minute with low back pressure or pressure drop. The 1GSS model features a one-inch inlet, larger than the three-quarter inch inlet that is typically seen on competing farm nozzles,” said Jerry Mahn, Husky Corporation Mechanical Engineer.
