ANSI/OPEI Certification

ISM provides ITW Fuel Filters & Fuel Valves that have been certified to the new B71.10 standard

A sample selection of ITW Fuel Filters & Valves that have been certified to ANSI/OPEI standardThe standard and certification processThe Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) sponsored an important revision of the “American National Standard for Off-Road Ground-Supported Outdoor Power Equipment – Gasoline Fuels Systems – Performance Specifications and Test Procedures”. The first edition of this standard was published by ANSI in 2008. During November of 2018, this new revision to the original standard was published and is now referred to as:  ANSI/OPEI B71.10-2018.  The effective implementation date of this standard is November 12, 2020.  It applies to all products built after that date.

The standard describes safety specifications and test procedures applicable to gasoline fuel systems for off-road ground-supported power equipment with spark ignition engines of less than one-liter displacement.  These new testing standards include new and updated structural integrity testing for inline fuel system components. That testing was developed to mimic the stresses caused by in-use conditions that can lead to part failures in fuel line components such as inline plastic fuel filters and fuel shut-off valves. 

The ITW Fastex Filtration® products distributed by ISM are now certified to the ANSI/OPEI B71.10-2018 standard using product tests conducted by an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited independent lab.  The tests included:

Fuel shut-off actuation testing
 
Fuel shut-off temperature testing
Impact testing
 
 
Leak testing
 
Fuel resistance testing (E10)
 
UV resistance testing
 

 

Benefits (and value) of Original Equipment Fuel Filters & ValvesThe benefits of products certified to this new ANSI/OPEI standard include greater safety, durability, and reliability.

What do manufacturers, designers and OEM after-market distributors get? Assurance regarding the quality of critical fuel system components such as fuel filters and fuel and fewer product recalls.

What do end users get?

  • Greater safety
  • Greater durability
  • Greater reliability


Expanded production capacities and improved toolingISM has been working with ITW, the manufacturer of the OEM filters and fuel valves, to increase production capacity.  There have been a number of investments made in new tooling, along with assembly and quality processes to allow ISM to meet the increased demand for the filters and valves that have been certified to the new ANSI/OPEI B71.10 2018 Standard.
