Rail-Buckeye Automatic Fuelling System for Diesel Locomotives
Rail-Buckeye Automatic Fuelling System for Diesel Locomotives

The Buckeye Automatic Fuelling System uses only two basic components: The adapter and the nozzle.

Adapter assembly:

  • The Emco Wheaton adapter is mounted to the diesel unit at each fuelling connection on the locomotive chassis
  • Minimal modification is required for installation. Simply remove existing fuel fittings and replace with the adapter
  • All adapters are equipped with dust caps
  • A manual adapter is available when refuelling cannot be done with the nozzle

Automatic nozzle:

  • One basic nozzle handles all fuelling requirements and provides a fuel flow range from 50 to 300 GPM
  • The nozzle is hydraulically balanced to permit easy opening and shock-free closing
  • This feature makes it possible to save fuelling time by starting the pump before attaching the nozzle
  • Increased pumping rates are also possible since higher pump relief valve settings may be used with safety
  • The nozzle assures automatic shut-off when the fuel tank reaches capacity.
  • When fuel level reaches the level shut-off tube, fuel transfer is shut off automatically and the tank is full
  • Overfill and underfill conditions are completely avoided. Fuel tank levels are consistent from fill to fill
  • Spill hazard is virtually eliminated
  • Since automatic shut-off is housed in the nozzle and not in the locomotive, bench repairs can be made without involving locomotive downtime
  • This feature keeps the locomotives in service as maintenance takes place
  • The tripping mechanism of the nozzle seals it against dirt, dust and other foreign matter
  • Additional reliability and long service life come from a Teflon piston seal and Teflon bearings
  • Safety features include a test plug for checking pressure and flow rate
  • Fuelling operations are eased by a raised ramp on the outlet coupler ring that provides easy nozzle attachment and release from the locomotive
