Where it is impractical or inefficient to bring the equipment to be fuelled to a fuel island, it is usual for the fuel to be brought tot he equipment using a fuel bowser. In the past this has lead to a reduction in fuel security, or at least a reliance on written fuelling information from the bowser driver. Because the jigsaw system uses the mobile data network, refuelling from a bowser is now as secure as on a static fuel site.
Typically, the fueller has to park the fuel bowser adjacent to the equipment to be fuelled then reel out the hose to the fuelling point. Whether the fueller ID’s the vehicle first and pulls out a charged hose, or inserts the nozzle and walks back to the fuel terminal, there is a much increased possibility that fuel will be spilled.
In the past, fuel management systems have treated the tank on the back of a bowser as just another vehicle so that this was where fuel and stock management stopped. The Jigsaw system has a Stock Transfer Tag which allows a normal refuelling at the pump to be used to fill the bowser, but treats the resulting transaction as a stock transfer from the static tank to the bowser so that stock management is maintained right to the point of fuelling.
In most cases, there is only one product being dispensed, so the Jigsaw Nova system is the obvious choice. Its small size and ability to operate from 12 or 24 Volts mean that it is easy to site on the fuel bowser. If more products are to be managed, or alphanumeric data entry is required, then the Jigsaw Eclipse may be used instead as it too has been designed to operate from a DC supply. Both systems will operate with both the FuelWand and FuelGuard add-ons.
Unique Jigsaw Vision Tiles give Real Time information - this one highlights any units taking more fuel than their peers.
The Jigsaw FuelWand has been designed to give the operator control of the filling process at all times. The Fuelwand is a hand held ID Tag reader which is linked to the fuel controller by radio. With the hose deployed, the fueller simply reads a tag fixed to the equipment being fuelled and the fuel starts to flow. Because the fueller is at the point of delivery during the fuelling process, there is much less possibility of a fuel spill.
