Safety Solutions for Liquid Filling

The Hydrau-Flo® valve system is a safer, cleaner and more reliable fuel filling valve arrangement which removes the risk of overfilling, spillage and tank rupture while minimising safety and environmental hazards associated with fuel transfer.

Using conventional systems, overfilling, spillage and tank rupture can be common occurrences. At 1,000 litres per minute, every second of spillage equates to more than 15 litres of diesel wasted and released into the environment.

Additionally, the cost to repair or replace ruptured fuel tanks is significant in terms of materials, labour and equipment down time.

  • Flows up to 1,000 L/min
  • Fully mechanical design integrated with hydraulic principles
  • Eliminates blockage and electronics failure
  • Cannot be over-ridden
  • Reduces costs associated with fuel wastage
  • prevents overfilling
  • prevents fuel spillage and wastage
  • removes the risk of tank rupture due to pressure build up during and after filling
  • minimises the risk of fire as a result of fuel spillage
  • reduces costs associated with fuel wastage and equipment damage
  • significantly improves safety and environmental outcomes

Hydrau-Flo® fuel filling valve range

The Hydrau-Flo® fuel filler safety valve range is available in three configurations to suit the majority of equipment types and applications.

The standard Hydrau-Flo® fuel filling (black) valve is ideal for all new equipment applications and existing equipment that has suitable fittings.

The most commonly used retro fit Hydrau-Flo® fuel filling (blue) valve fits directly into truck and loader fuel tanks using 2″ NPT thread. These valves fit into typical CAT and Komatsu fuel tank recesses.

This retro fit Hydrau-Flo® fuel filling (red) valve is designed to fit into tanks using the “Wiggins” ZNC3 recess. These are typically used on 776 and 773 trucks.

Hydrau-Flo® float control valve range

The Hydrau-Flo® float control valve has a robust design for use on mobile equipment which ensures reliable pilot operation of the Hydrau-Flo® fuel filling valve.

This valve is available with two stem lengths (according to fill level requirements) and must be used on all mobile equipment applications.
