Fuel Dispenser Components

In public gasoline filling stations, a filling machine delivers fuel from the underground pool into the oil tank of the automotive.  The structure of the machine is the assembly of many fuel dispenser components.

Operation of Gasoline Delivery Machine

The gas filling machine consists of two main subsystems: an electrical controlling system and a mechanical gasoline delivery filling system.

The whole system includes several hundred components and operates automatically without artificial interference. Nowadays, the machine is capable to operate automatically, therefore the driver can add fuel on-site privately without a human assistant.

How does Gasoline Delivery Facility Work?

The mechanical gasoline delivery facility includes fuel dispenser components of a fuel pump, connecting fitting, oil hose, nozzle handle, and nozzle spout.

The trigged handle will give a filling signal to the electrical control system, thus the pump motor starts to pump fuel into a car oil tank through the entire fuel delivery pipe. A meter mounted on the nozzle handle will gauge the metering, and give the pump motor a stopping signal to shut off delivery once fuel volume reaches the setting point.

Material Selection of Components

As common sense, it is strictly forbidden to create static fire, no matter on talking about the visible fire.

Considering this special requirement, all the materials of the fuel delivery facility has to be anti-static. As a result, insulating materials, such as plastics and rubber, the designer does not consider using normally. The accumulated static electricity on plastic material will not conduct away easily and has the potential to create exploded fire if not grounding properly.

In summary, gasoline delivery components are common mechanical parts, and the general industrial manufacturing method is capable to make it. But, special attention has to put on static.
