Fuel Total Systems designs and manufactures high quality Stainless Steel Filler Pipes for the automotive industry. Our products offer superior protection properties to resist the harshest environments. The Fuel Total Systems Fuel Filler Pipe is designed to reduce fuel hydrocarbons in order to meet the highest federal government requirements.
Of all the automotive parts, the fuel filler pipe needs to endure many conditions. Inside, corrosion and deterioration is a major consideration for the construction of filler pipes. The filler pipes are an essential connection for receiving the fuel into the tank which is highly flammable. The condition of the tube and the construction plays a part in the integrity of the pipe under stress and extreme conditions. In the instance of an accident, the pipe must retain its shape. Externally, it must resist the natural wear and tear of mud, road salts, and other corrosive materials.
The stainless steel filler pipe from Fuel Total Systems undertakes a unique manufacturing process that produces reliable and fully functional productivity. We receive our stainless steel pipes and apply our innovative approach to creating and forming the pipe for optimal performance. Our robotic technology will bend the breather pipe, and our state-of-the-art machines weld them together. Our production will also shape the end forms for safe and effective fuel resistance and durability.
There are several advantages of stainless steel fuel filler pipes
- Low permeability
- Effective internal and external corrosion resistance
- Lighter in weight than using straight steel materials
- Can take on complex shapes to improve functionality
- The stainless steel integrates well with other types of construction materials.
The federal government requires automotive manufactures to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Stands (FMVSS). The fuel tanks are a reservoir for highly flammable fuel which can easily ignite if it comes in contact with excessive heat or sparks. Because of their critical function, fuel tanks need to meet safety requirements mandated by the federal government proving they are not defective before installing in a vehicle. At Fuel Total Systems, we are responsible for meeting the guidelines of safety-critical parts that ensure each fuel tank we manufacture is free from defects.
Low Emission Standards
The Low Emission Vehicle standards (LEV) imposed criteria for lowering pollutant and emissions in the 1990s. The object was to advance clean air by reducing the number of emissions in automobiles. LEV has evolved over the years resulting in different classifications under the program. At Fuel Total Systems, we comply with the LEV III standards. This is the most stringent greenhouse gas emission standards for new passenger vehicles.
