Not all vapour recovery solutions are the same, they can vary in accuracy, reliability and power consumption. The technology they are built upon also varies greatly. As a leading specialist in the field of
vapour recovery (VR), our portfolio of electronic VR solutions are widely regarded as being the most accurate, reliable and cost-effective in today’s marketplace.
We provide two options for Stage II VR dispensers: an open-loop solution (ECVR-OL) and a self-calibrating system (ECVR-SCS). These can also be provided as retrofit kits for Tokheim and third-party dispensers. Regarding future environmental legislation,
a set of sophisticated VR applications can be supplied on board, as standard, on all new calculators – ensuring that there is no need for additional VR electronics. As a result, this leads to fewer components, more space, less power consumption, and fewer cables.
The Electronically Controlled Vapour Recovery Open Loop (ECVR-OL) solution utilises our powerful TQC calculator to accurately control the VR. This entry-level solution provides greater accuracy (typically 100% +/- 0.05), as well as a reduced
power consumption requirement from the pumping unit (33% less than other manufacturers). The ECVR-OL solution also comes with no moving parts which make it more reliable and less likely to require servicing at the dispenser.
The Electronically Controlled Vapour Recovery Self-Calibrating System (ECVR- SCS) includes an additional number of features that ensures your VR unit does not require any manual recalibration once it’s commissioned. The system combines the robust and established architecture of the ECVR-OL with our patented Vapour Flow Meter (VFM). As a result, the calibration data is updated and analysed after every fill and transaction; this is compensated automatically for any vapour loss variation to guarantee 100%
accuracy. Operational safety and efficiency is then further improved by real-time analysis functionality.
With the ECVR-SCS solution service call outs are greatly reduced through remote diagnostics, so forecourt staff can get on with their job without having to worry about dispenser alarms or faults. This system also embodies a lower total cost of ownership, due to the reduced recalibration and maintenance costs over its lifetime.
We provide both the ECVR-OL and ECVR-SCS solutions as retrofit kits for Tokheim and 3rd party dispensers. By working closely with all our business partners, we can effectively provide direct local assistance in more than thirty countries, ensuring the kits are installed correctly and in line with local regulations. Our retrofit kits are widely recognised and accepted by a range of W&M bodies and authorities. The kits are
also compact in design to guarantee easy integration, even in older, less sophisticated fuel dispensers where space may be more limited. A complete set of documentation for installation technicians and users is available in multiple languages, as well as local training programmes.
