New NTEP certification will make LPG a more conventionally used fuel for U.S. fleets and general public

Superior Energy Systems has received National Type Evaluation Programme (NTEP) retail certification for its Autogas dispensers, which can now be sold to customers that wish to install them in a public setting for full retail use. These dispensers also hold certifications and approvals from the National Conference of Weights and Measures, Measurement Canada, and the Canadian Standards Association.

NTEP requires the fuel industry to submit prototype measuring devices for rigorous evaluation to determine whether they meet uncertainties associated with intended final use in the marketplace, and all “legal for trade” devices must pass these evaluations.

“We have watched the retail Autogas market gradually open as the number of states removing training and infrastructure barriers grows; our retail certification is an additional step to making Autogas a more conventionally used fuel for both fleets and the general public,” said Derek Rimko, vice president of operations for Superior Energy Systems.

While Autogas adoption continues to grow for fleets, consumer adoption requires available infrastructure. The availability of private, public and state LPG association grants for retail Autogas infrastructure has increased in recent years.

The retail certification comes as Superior Energy Systems continues to advance its LPG refuelling technology. New onboard diagnostics offer enhanced service capability and increased reliability with the company’s own in-house software, which does not rely on third-party support. These features allow for affordable, reliable, and advanced refuelling for Autogas wholesale fleet and retail customers throughout North America. The certification also allows fleet customers the ability to offer retail refuelling at their locations, increasing profit as well as Autogas use. For more information, please visit this link.
