Global Star™ V LPG Dispenser Configuration Meets French Regulations  Provides Flexibility Combined with Advanced Performance

Malmö, Sweden (March 11, 2011) – Dresser Wayne, a global innovator of fuel dispensers and technologies, together with French distributor Lafon & Serep, today announces that its LPG configuration is now available to forecourts in France. The Global Star V LPG dispenser confirms Dresser Wayne’s commitment to providing eco‐fuel options to its customers.

Dresser Wayne’s Global Star V LPG dispenser offers best‐in‐class LPG hydraulic components, single‐ and double‐sided configurations that include filter, air separator, meter and differential and solenoid valves. It also features Wayne Intelligent Pulser (WIP) technology, which provides the benefits of electronic calibration while maintaining a mechanical option as well. Its retractable hoses and attractive, durable plastic nozzle boots, and its small footprint make it easier for retailers to place LPG fueling equipment in prominent, easily accessible places on the forecourt. Dresser Wayne manufactures its Global Star LPG dispensers to meet the highest industry standards of accuracy, safety and durability—including resistance to corrosion in even the toughest of environments.

Its sophisticated magnetic nozzle‐switch helps reduce the risk of drive‐offs that can damage the dispenser. The use of Dresser Wayne’s most popular “petroleum‐style” configuration and design allows retailers to offer their customers the same features and functionality to which they are accustomed, while providing an attractive, uniform appearance to the multi‐product forecourt.

"To remain competitive, retailers need to be able to offer a wide range of fueling options to satisfy the diverse needs of their customers," Annika Birkler, Global Star product manager for Dresser Wayne explains. “The addition of the Global Star V LPG dispenser to our product portfolio in France, combined with the expertise and customer base of our distributor, Lafon & Serep, make us confident that Dresser Wayne has taken another positive step to meet and exceed the expectations of our French customers.”
