For a long period of time, it was common industry practice for petroleum technicians to install and leave in place a quick connect in the test port of the dispenser shear valve. This allowed technicians to connect testing devices into the line without the hazard of exposing themselves to a pressurized fueling system, resulting in safer, quicker line and leak detector tests. However, leaving a quick connect permanently installed in the shear valve is dangerous. As history has shown, this can create another deadly unprotected flow path. Following a horrific accident, this practice has been terminated and existing quick connects removed in many locations and discouraged in others. Vml has the solution! Installing the Vml Safety Port between the dispenser filter and filter adapter provides a safe location for permanent installation of a quick connect. The safety port also allows filter change‐outs without a blast of pressurized fuel escaping the filter.
