BATA and MechTronic have formed a strong relationship since the installation of MaxFlow (an electronic metering system) in 2010.
Richard Burley, Transport Manager at BATA said: “We have been using MaxFlow across our fleet with great success over the years however, we decided to move to OptiMate this time due to the increased level of protection OptiMate provides our business and drivers when dealing with a line change. Also, to have the reassurance that when out delivering mixed fuel loads knowing your driver cannot commence a delivery from a compartment that contains a dissimilar product to the one already in the hose adds and additional layer of protection against costly mistakes.
“As any other fuel distribution company operating within the industry, we are aware of the threat of contamination. The self-draining manifold ensures a cleaner line change resulting in reducing the risk of a contamination and a shorter line change.
“The straight-forward line change procedure should over time, generate increased efficiencies for our business. Early indications are positive, with our drivers commenting on how easy the system is to use and that they like the peace of mind it provides in terms of protections against contamination!
