EMCO Wheaton’s PosiLock 105 is recognised as the leading closed loop fuel system for city buses and other fleet vehicles.
The system’s high flow rate and dry-break couplings offer users an effective fueling solution with zero risk of spillage. The PosiLock 105 is also equipped with an automatic shut off mechanism and consistent fuel level delivery, guaranteeing a vehicle’s tank is always filled to 95% capacity.
This product is key to the safe and efficient operation of today’s fleets and is used by both businesses and local authorities across the world.
The PosiLock 105 closed loop fuel system comprises of a lightweight fueling nozzle and filler neck. The nozzle is attached to a fuelling station while the filler neck is mounted onto the tank of a vehicle.
Both the nozzle and filler neck are equipped with dry-break disconnect couplings. This eliminates fuel spillage during operation, helping organisations to minimise losses when processing a high number of vehicles throughout the day. These couplings will also help save on disposal costs once fuel has been collected in separators and eliminate the risk of theft. Nozzles will not dispense without an active connection and tanks are inaccessible once a filler neck has been fitted.
The PosiLock 105’s nozzle is capable of dispensing fuel up to 185 litres/min (50 US gallons/min), allowing a high throughput of vehicles during busy periods. The system is also fitted with a pressure gauge that triggers automatic shut off, so operators are free to attend to other tasks while a tank is being filled. These features significantly speed up the time it takes to prepare a fleet for the road.
Arguably the biggest benefit of the PosiLock 105 is its in-built fuel level, which guarantees every tank is filled to 95% capacity. This avoids premature underfueling, which can cause vehicles to stop mid traffic and add delays to a schedule. Better still the system’s design limits operator issues, so common human errors associated with fueling is virtually eliminated.
The PosiLock 105 system requires a flow rate between 80-185 litres/min (20-50 US gallons/min). The inlet connection includes a swivel that is available with a 1” NPT connection or 22mm BSP (ISO) connection. Note – this system can support remote component mounting and can be customised to meet your specific requirements.
The PosiLock 105 is specifically designed for city buses and operators who maintain their own fueling stations for fleet vehicles. It’s widely used by both private businesses and local authorities across the world. In certain regions the PosiLock 105 system can also be used by coach operators through the use of additional components.
Once installed, this closed loop fuel system requires minimal maintenance unless components have been damaged. Bumper rings and wear lugs are also fitted to prolong the nozzle’s service life. However, EMCO Wheaton offers OEM spares and repair kits with all required parts for in-field servicing to keep the PosiLock 105 in optimum working condition.
