Service stations are facilities that sell fuel, engine lubricants, and other vehicle-related products. They need to have a good supply of service station accessories to properly operate their equipment and provide safe and adequate service to their customers.
The equipment that is most prominent in a service station is the fuel dispenser. It is used for pumping gasoline and diesel, as well as LPG, CNG, HCNG, LH2, CGH2, kerosene, biofuels, ethanol fuel, and other fuel types into vehicles. It also has a built-in mechanism for calculating the cost of the fuel pumped. Fuel dispensers are usually equipped with colour-coded nozzles that indicate the type of fuel they dispense. These nozzles can differ in the size of their filler pipes.
Other equipment which also utilize accessories include single and multiple tanks for storing fuel. These tanks are usually installed underground, although some stations also store fuel in surface tanks, such as container tanks, unprotected fuel tanks, and entrenched surface tanks. These equipments utilize various valves, pipes, nozzles, service canals, and various other accessories.
Vapor recovery systems are another essential accessory in a service station. They are a system of pipes that prevent the release of vapor out into the air. They collect fuel vapor and liquefies it, after which it is released back to the fuel tank with the lowest grade.
