Medium-duty: Autocar delivers first all-electric terminal tractor to Old Dominion Freight Line
Superior Energy Systems has engineered a new propane autogas fuel dispenser featuring a secure, web-based fuel management system.
The PRO-Vend 2000 allows customers to easily track driver identification and vehicle mileage. It can also create customizable reports without the need to purchase and install separate technology.
A self-contained, touchscreen system makes refueling a simple process, said the company. A built-in refueling training video is available for drivers that need extra assistance. Drivers can also refuel with a credit card or access number.
“One of the things we’re most excited about is how fully integrated the PRO-Vend 2000 is,” said Mike Walters, vice president of safety and training for Superior Energy Systems. “Everything you need to refuel, track and manage usage, and train drivers is contained within this box.”
The company noted that the new dispenser has received high marks from its users.
“This dispenser is a game-changer for the autogas industry,” said Steve Krepop, account manager at AmeriGas, the largest propane supplier in the United States. “The system is so easy to use—and there is immense value having a refueling training video built right in.”
The turnkey unit, which uses a zero emission fuel nozzle, complies with all applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and is also listed by Underwriters Laboratories. This means the PRO-Vend 2000 can be added to any existing fuel station.
Due to virtually unlimited tracking ability, the dispenser’s card-reading unit can be used for public or private stations, said the company.
“No additional wiring or infrastructure is needed to install one of these dispensers,” Walters said. “If you have Internet access, you can connect to this state-of-the-art system.”
