OPD connectors offer productive filling

August 10, 2011 By    

FasTest Inc. offers the FasFuel Overfill Protection Device (OPD) connectors, designed for safe and productive filling of OPD cylinders. Part of the FasFuel connector series – a family of tools designed to provide fast, easy and environmentally safe connections for the propane industry – OPD connectors feature a sleeve-actuated design to facilitate fast connect and disconnect operation for OPD cylinder filling. A connection is made by pushing the connector’s actuator sleeve forward over the cylinder’s valve threads. The full-flow design ensures maximum flow rate while in operation, and the gripping design ensures a safe and secure valve connection. Upon completion of the cylinder filling cycle, the connector can be released with a simple pull back on the actuator sleeve. However, a safety feature prevents disconnect while the connector is still under pressure, ensuring operator safety. The design facilitates efficient filling of numerous cylinders, and an internal shutoff valve minimizes the amount of propane that is vented into the atmosphere upon disconnect from the OPD cylinder.
