UL Approves E85 Compatible Hose

Growth Energy, the nation’s primary advocate of the use of ethanol, and Veyance Technologies, a manufacturer of liquid fuel dispenser hoses, today announced Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certification of the Veyance Flexsteel® Futura liquid fuel dispenser hose for use with mid- and high-level blends of ethanol.

This is the last equipment part requiring UL certification for mid- and high-level blend dispensing equipment, following a 2006 decision by UL to rescind previous certification and revise equipment standards for this type of dispenser. This announcement concludes the final series of UL testing for the “hanging hardware” which is attached to the basic fuel dispenser.

Growth Energy had partnered with Veyance and provided financial support necessary to accelerate the submission of the hose for UL testing and, ultimately, certification.

This is the last component of the “hanging hardware” needed for a complete approval of an E85 dispensing unit. Certification of a complete E85 and blender pump by UL is expected soon and Authorities Having Jurisdiction, (State and local Fire Marshals and Code Enforcement Officials) will soon be in position to accept mid and high level blend ethanol dispensers with complete UL certification.
