The NEW Emco Wheaton J0452 with Integrated Pump is like no other API Coupler… here’s why

If you use API Couplers you will know that they all suffer from the same problem, a problem that until now operators have grown to accept. Each time you uncouple, the small amount of product which is lost during poppet closure sits in the collar of the coupler. As the coupler is withdrawn and stowed, this product drips from the coupler onto the ground between tanker and gantry creating a slippery and unsafe working area. Until now, this has been commonly accepted as par for the course.

The J0452 with Integrated Pump overcomes this problem through some very clever design. Each time you uncouple, surplus product is drawn from the face of the coupler, through a filter and into a an integrated chamber. The next time you attached the coupler, the contents of the chamber are ejected back into the line. A simple and effective solution to a common problem.

FlotechPS have a number of these out on trial with customers and the initial results are very pleasing. If you are interested in seeing this new technology in action then get in touch and we will be happy to give you a demo.

FlotechPS Awarded Safecontractor Certification

FlotechPS  has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that FlotechPS has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
