OPW, a Dover company and a global leader in fluid-handling solutions, has announced that its new OPW 14E ECO (Enhanced Conventional) Nozzle has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification, as the industry’s first dripless conventional gasoline-fueling nozzle. The 14E ECO (Enhanced Conventional) nozzle is available for dripless conventional CARB-required fueling jurisdictions, as well as for any fuel site desiring a cleaner, greener fueling experience for its customers.

“The new OPW 14E CARB ECO nozzle is the first true conventional dripless nozzle in the industry,” said Ed Kammerer, Director of Marketing and Global Product Strategy for OPW Retail Fueling. “It is a landmark accomplishment for OPW and for the industry. Our patented spout design free drains any remaining fuel instead of collecting it in the spout like all other previous dripless designs. If a nozzle spout collects fuel, it is then allowed to evaporate into the air causing more harm than good. The 14E is truly unique, dripless and better for the environment so marketers can rest assured that their customers will have a cleaner fueling experience. This nozzle is truly defining what’s next in clean fueling!”
The 14E ECO nozzle earned CARB approval through a design that features a patent and patent-pending dripless-spout design with a fuel-activation interlock valve located inside the bellows. This results in the industry’s first true dripless spout and the only CARB-certified dripless nozzle. Other features of the 14E CARB ECO nozzle include no-pressure/no-flow nozzle-activation technology and a FlowLock™ system that allows the nozzle to shut off if it should fall out of the vehicle during fueling. The 14E CARB ECO nozzle is cULus-listed, has been cycle-tested for more than one million use cycles, and is compatible for use with gasoline and up to 10% ethanol blends.
The 14E ECO nozzle is part of the OPW 14 Series Cleaner Fueling Nozzle family designed to provide a cleaner, greener fueling experience for customers and a competitive advantage for marketers.
