OPW Fluid Transfer Group, a part of Dover Corp, has formed a team to focus on the biofuels industry. With a combined 30-plus years of experience in working with ethanol, the newly formed unit at OPW Fluid Transfer Group believes that biofuels are key components in the current and future motor fueling industry.
Due to safety concerns in handling all types of biofuels and the aggressive nature of ethanol in particular, OPW Fluid Transfer Group is conducting tests of several types of fluid-handling products for compatibility with various metals and seals. The company manufactures products that are used in the production process, transportation, terminaling, and loading/unloading of biofuels.
“OPW Fluid Transfer Group is a member of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) and the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE). Our membership in these leading industry organizations allows us to share new product information and application knowledge with the biofuels market,” said Gary Schriever, newly appointed market manager for biofuels. The company will also exhibit at the upcoming Eastern Region and Western Region BBI Biofuels Workshops and tradeshows.
OPW Fluid Transfer Group is developing an integrated suite of biofuel-compatible products, using all six divisions of OPW Fluid Transfer Group's products. The group consists of OPW Engineered Systems, Midland Mfg, Civacon, Knappco, Sure Seal, and OPW Fluid Transfer Group-Europe.
