Liquip

Liquip offers a vapour gate/interlock bar that is installed over the bottom loading adaptors, overfill system connection and vapour recovery adaptor in order to provide drive away protection.

The bar provides drive away protection by ensuring drivers raise/drop the bar prior to connecting/disconnecting hoses.

An integral air interlock valve applies the vehicles brakes and can also open the vapour recovery vents.
