Jan 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Civacon, a division of OPW Fluid Transfer Group and a provider of cargo tank components and systems, announces the availability of the new 891 Series API bottom-loading adaptor. Recognizing the crucial role adaptors play in any bottom-loading system, Civacon has precision-engineered and designed the 891 Series for long, dependable operation in high-flow applications.
The 891 Series is a direct replacement for Civacon's 861 and 897 Series API bottom-loading adaptors and all competitors bottom-loading adaptors. The new 891 API conforms to API RP-1004, ADR, and EN13083 specifications and is available in both openable and non-openable versions, all of which are compatible with diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, ethanol, and methanol. Other features and benefits include a poppet seal that can be replaced without removing the API from the tank; a computer-designed cam profile; a flat-bottom design for minimal product retention; Viton GFLT seals compatible with fuels and additives; stainless-steel internals; a design that minimizes pressure drop; and super-smooth lever action.
Four product styles are offered:
891A — Openable API adaptor with aluminum handle, two-piece body, and hard-coated nosepiece.
891BA — Openable API adaptor with aluminum handle, sight glass, two-piece body, and hard-coated nosepiece.
891N — Non-openable API adaptor with two-piece design and hard-coated nosepiece.
891NB — Non-openable API adaptor with sight glass, two-piece design, and hard-coated nosepiece.
