TRANSPORTER ® VAPOR-LOC TANK TRUCK Multipurpose Fuel Transfer Hose

With its unique, multi-layered permeation barrier system, VAPOR-LOC Tank Truck Hose is unlike any other bulk transport hose product available, today.

Through the use of this exclusive VAPOR-LOC manufacturing process, this hose dramatically reduces atmospheric petroleum emissions, reduces fuel lost through permeation and virtually eliminates smelly fuel odors and more.

This hose is rated at full vacuum. It provides a constant working pressure of 150 and/or 200 psi. It is exceptionally lightweight, very flexible and handles easily.

This hose is ideal for use in rough, outdoor conditions. VAPOR-LOC Tank Truck Hose is highly recommended for use with most petroleum products, various types of fats/oils, hydraulic fluids and some chemicals.

Transporter VAPOR-LOC Tank Truck Hose - Multipurpose Fuel Transfer HoseThis chart demonstrates just how effective the barrier VAPOR-LOC process is in stopping fuel vapor permeation.

Shown are the test results of the amount of fuel vapor in grams per day lost for two gasoline fuel types (see chart) over a forty day period in a side by side comparison of our 2" I.D.

Thermoid VAPOR-LOC manufacturing process - Multipurpose Fuel Transfer HoseVAPOR-LOC ... the newest, most innovative and cost effective hydrocarbon fuel vapor barrier hose technology available, today.

The exclusive VAPOR-LOC multi-layering manufacturing process (patent pending) virtually traps and prevents hydrocarbon fuel vapors from permeating through the hose.

As shown in the hose illustration above, the VAPOR-LOC manufacturing process integrates a multi-layer vapor resistant barrier between the hose's components virtually locking in the hydrocarbon fuel vapors that would normally permeate through a traditional hose construction.

Thermoid's VAPOR-LOC process will be made available on other fuel hoses, making these the best fuel saving and environmentally effective hose products on the market.

The reduction of hydrocarbon pollution emissions into the atmosphere, improved use of available fuel resources and the overall fuel cost savings created by the use of hoses with our VAPOR-LOC process will benefit everyone.

Shown below are some facts about current hydrocarbon fuel lost in the United States :

  • In the US, 190 billion gallons of fuel (gasoline, diesel, etc.) are yearly*
  • About 10-18 grams of fuel per gallon is lost through permeation through fuel hose products**
  • Using the 10 gram figure from above, this means about .33% of the fuel is lost per gallon
  • Volume-wise that is 627 million gallons of fuel lost yearly in the United States
  • At an average cost of $3.00 per gallon, this 627 MILLION GALLONS of lost fuel equals $1.88 Billion


The total VAPOR-LOC Hose system would save 90-99% of fuel lost presently through permeation
