C. Mechanism

  • The 4 steps of the OPD mechanism:

  • THE FILLING STAGE

  • THE CLOSURE (level N1)

  • THE EMPTYING OF THE FLEXIBLE AND THE PIPE

  • 4) THE CLOSURE (level Nmax)

1 the filling stage

C. Mechanism

1) THE FILLING STAGE

The float is in low position and the piston in the high position.

The liquid flows through the OPD body (red area).

The float gradually rises according to the tank filling level.


2 the closure level n1

C. Mechanism

2) THE CLOSURE (level N1)

The balance Weights are carried along by the rise of the balance shaft on the float.

The piston partially obstructs the flow which enables the increase of the hydraulic pressure in the chamber.


Overfill prevention device

C. Mechanism

2) THE CLOSURE (level N1)

The hydraulic pressure let the Balance weights breaking away from the balance shaft. They finish their rise independently to the float while the piston sits on its seat.

The N1 level is reached and ensures a full closure.


3 the emptying of the flexible and the pipe

C. Mechanism

3) THE EMPTYING OF THE FLEXIBLE AND THE PIPE

The different steps of the emptying.

  • Closing the tanker truck valve.

  • Elimination of the hydraulic pressure in the chamber thanks to the flight hole pierced on the wrapping of the piston chamber and thanks to the opening valve.

  • Reopening of the piston

  • Emptying of the flexible (minimum 150 litters)


4 level nmax

C. Mechanism

4) LEVEL Nmax

In the event of accidental decanting, repeated emptying operations or failure to comply with the flows stipulated by current standards, the overfill prevention device can reach a maximum level Nmax which prevents any further filling until the liquid level has fallen in the tank.
