The Fuel Fast Filling system is designed for fast and safe refuelling and lubrication service on Sandvik loaders.
Fuel Fast Filling System allows rapid fuelling with no spillage and with automatic shut-off when the tank is full. As the receiver is mounted near the bottom of the tank, there is no foaming that could result into partial fuel loads.
The system is based on using a sealed tank on the vehicle. A receiver is mounted on the tank, near the bottom (to eliminate foaming) and a vent on the top of the tank. Filling is done using a Wiggins ZZ9A1 nozzle – as fuel enters the tank, it forces the air inside to exit through the vent. When fuel level nears the top of the tank, the “hollow floating balls” force the valve in the vent seal the tank, and pressure inside the tank starts building up until at 8 to 10 psi the fuelling nozzle automatically shuts off.
