FillSafe Zero – Mechanical Tank Overfill Protection System
Banlaw FillSafeTM Zero Safe, Fast, Reliable Filling
Banlaw’s mechanical tank overfill protection systems help mining, construction, and rail companies that need to refuel diesel-powered machines efficiently and safely.
They achieve this by avoiding productivity loss from underfills, overfills, and tank damage while delivering substantially higher flow rates under normal operating conditions.
Banlaw FillSafeTM Zero tank overfill protection systems are the benchmark in pressureless fast fill systems.
The unique patent pending* design is energised by the flow of fuel, which means no external power source is required, no specialist skills are needed to install, and the system is cost-efficient when compared with other options.

Benefits of the FillSafe Zero Tank Overfill Protection System:
No pressure build up in the tank
Prolongs equipment life and avoids tank splits and spills.
Superior flow characteristics
Unlike some competitor systems, Banlaw has designed FillSafe Zero as a single package (i.e. Dry Break refuelling and overfill prevention in one integrated solution). This means optimised fuel flow, and very low pressure-drop through the Flow Control Valve which ensures higher refuelling flowrates without premature nozzle shut-off.
Consistently accurate tank filling to your specified levels
The system automatically terminates fuel flow once the tank is full, so no overfilling of machines, and no break downs from accidental underfills.
Single Pilot Line
Only a single pilot (signal) line is required, with the option of routing the line either internally or externally to the tank(s).
Exceptional fill speed
200lpm (53gpm) all the way up to 1000lpm (264gpm).
Works with your existing refuelling hardware
Our Flow Control Valves with their integrated Dry Break Receivers have been configured to operate reliably with the widest possible range of Banlaw and other-brand Dry Break refuelling nozzles.
Less sprays, slips, and falls
Operators do not need to stop refuelling, check how full the tank is and continue. FillSafe Zero ends the refuelling event automatically. This reduces the instances of staff getting hurt when climbing on equipment, and dramatically speeds up the process.
Banlaw FillSafeTM Zero Flow Control Valves and Level Sensors can be used (interchanged) with a variety of competitor OFP products. Contact Banlaw or your nearest authorised Banlaw distributor for further information.
Fitting the 2” Flow Control Valve and Venting Level Sensor requires no hot-work or external modifications to tanks (easy retrofit).
Incorporates both primary (pressure-less) and secondary (pressured backup) overfill protection to ensure tank filling is stopped automatically, every time. Operators can initiate a refuelling event, and then invest their time in other important maintenance tasks.
Suitable for most tanks
The range of product options in the FillSafe Zero family means almost all industrial machines and small to medium diesel storages can be fitted with this system.
Customise to your requirements
If your tank requires a non-standard ullage, or your deployment is of more complex design, contact the specialists at Banlaw to discuss a solution specific to your needs.

How The System Works
In a FillSafe Zero system, the Flow Control Valve closes when a Level Sensor detects that the tank is full, stopping the flow of diesel from entering the tank.
The FillSafe Zero architecture is highly flexible. Customers can mix-and-match the various Flow Control Valve and Level Sensor options to suit their specific requirements, including multiple tanks on the same machine, remote mounting, integrated tank venting, and cost minimisation.
