Moves to bigger manufacturing facility

HUDSON, N.H. -- Healy Systems has announced that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has issued the first EVR Phase II Vapor Recovery Certification to Healy Systems Inc. The certification, VR- 201- A, was signed by Catherine Witherspoon, executive director of CARB on April 8, 2005, and it is effective as of that date.

The system features Healy's Model 900 Nozzle to meet the EVR dripless gasoline nozzle standard, and its Model 9961 Clean Air Separator to meet the EVR standard for underground storage tank (UST) pressure management. The Healy EVR [image-nocss] System when installed in a gas station will save the environment from exposure to hydrocarbon pollution currently emitted by systems that are not ORVR compatible, the company said.

The new EVR technology will protect groundwater from methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) pollution due to underground fugitive emission leaks as well as from airborne vapor releases, it added.

Healy has partnered with the Veeder-Root Co., Simsbury, Conn., to provide the In Station Diagnostics (ISD) component required for full EVR certification. The full EVR certification, including ISD, is expected by Sept. 1, 2005, and it will be added at that time to Executive Order VR- 201-A.

The Healy EVR System is the only dispenser-mounted Phase II vapor recovery system currently approved for new gas station construction in California, said the company. Healy EVR equipment is certified to be used on Dresser Wayne, Gilbarco and other gasoline dispensing systems.

Executive Order VR- 201-A is the latest in a series of CARB certifications for air and water pollution control to be issued to Healy. The company also holds certifications in Mexico, Chile, China, Taiwan, India, Sweden, Germany and Italy for its pollution control devices, it said.

The firm recently moved into a nearby 50,000-sq.-ft. building in Hudson, N.H. The new quarters increased its manufacturing space by 75%.
