compared to currently-offered system
designs, the company said. The system
relies on level sensing in the tank to
control the flow of the liquid.
Dixon’s system is engineered with a
single point of connection for both the
fluid flow and the electrical connection.
Visual confirmation of system integrity at
the point of fluid connection allows for
immediate user feedback in the case of
any system faults.
“Important design features include a
three-inch, dry-disconnect coupler and
adaptor that eliminates spillage when
connecting and disconnecting during
fluid transfers. A single-point, push-and-turn connection is supported by LED
controls that signal the system status to
users,” the press release says.
The controller automatically shuts
off the pump or closes the valve when
the tank is full.
“This fail-safe feature prevents
any fluid flow once the tank is full,
and also protects against fluid flow
if there is any fault detected in the
system. It is an improvement over
vacuum-operated systems, which can
experience incidences of liquid flow
shutting off too soon or not at all,”
the company said.
The dry-disconnect coupler and
adapter are made of aluminum, 316
stainless steel and brass-gunmetal
materials, while the coupler and adapter
rings are made of chlorinated polyvinyl
chloride (CPVC) material.
“Our overfill prevention system is a
reliable and fail-safe solution – one
that’s easier to install and operate
and allows for easy troubleshooting,”
