VaporVac®: Vapor Recovery made easy.

VaporVac® vacuum assist vapor recovery system is the vaccum technology that we use for our Encore gasoline fuel dispensers. This system dispenses fuel 30% faster than typical balance vapor recovery systems and the equipment is less bulky. Customers will be happy with these easy-to-handle hoses and nozzles.

The VaporVac system meets EPA requirements for Stage II vapor recovery.

  • VaporVac uses pulser signals from the meters to track real time flow rate of gasoline.
  • Customer places the VaporVac nozzle in the vehicle (no bellows to compress).
  • VaporVac pump creates a vacuum that removes vapors from the vehicle's tank.
  • The vapors are returned to the fuel storage tank through standard balance system underground vapor painting.
  • The vapor pump controller regulates pump's speed proportional to fuel flow rate.
