Mr. Donald L. Leininger, P.E.
This is in response to your request for California Air Resources Board (CARB) approval for OPW's 61fSTOP Overfill Prevention Valve, Models 1000, 2000, 100M, 200M and 3050. The Model 1000 overfill prevention valve was evaluated at the Carmichael Water Works located at 7837 Fair Oaks Boulevard in Carmichael. According to the drawings submitted, the Model 2000, 100M, 200M, and 3050 are similar in design to the Model 1000 and should perform similarly when used in CARB certified above ground tank vapor recovery systems.
As required by the Certification Procedures for Gasoline Vapor Recovery Systems at Gasoline Dispensing Facilities, approvals by the Department of Food and Agriculture, Division of Measurement Standards (DMS), the Department of Occupational Safety and Health, and the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, Office of the State Fire Marshal are a precondition to certification by CARB. The appropriate letters of approval have been received from the following agencies:
Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
Department of Industrial Relations
Department of Food and Agriculture
I find that use of OPW's 61fSTOP Overfill Prevention Valve, models 1000, 2000, 100M, 200M, and 3050, when installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions will not adversely affect the performance of vapor recovery systems on which it is installed. Therefore, the OPW 61fSTOP Overfill Prevention Valve, models noted above, are certified for use with CARB certified above ground tank vapor recovery systems.
Should you have questions and need further information, please contact Joe Guerrero at (916) 324-9487 or Pat Bennett at (916) 445-9308.
William V. Loscutoff, Chief
