Contamination prevention with OptiMate
Richard Burley, Transport Manager at BATA said: “We have been using OptiMate for a couple of years now and have benefited from the increased level of protection OptiMate provides our business and drivers when dealing with a line change. Also, to have the reassurance that when our drivers are out delivering mixed fuel loads, we know that the system will make the driver aware if he is about to commence a delivery from a compartment that contains a dissimilar product to the one already in the hose, adding an 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 has generated increased efficiencies for our business and our drivers comment on how easy the system is to use and that they like the peace of mind it provides in terms of protection against contamination.
