Pioneer Eclipse Announces the Launch of SafeStop

 New safety feature shuts down improper propane use.

 SPARTA, NC September 11, 2017 – Pioneer Eclipse, the leader in floor care technology, today announced the launch of SafeStop, the latest of its propane safety features. Propane machines featuring SafeStop will be on exhibit during the 2017 ISSA/INTERCLEAN show in Las Vegas in booth #1725.

The patent pending SafeStop feature detects improper propane cylinder use, such as overfilled tanks or the use of a liquid-draw tank rather than a vapor-draw tank. If improper use is detected, SafeStop automatically shuts down the machine. This reduces the risk of the most common source of fire hazard when it comes to propane cylinder use on floor machines: overfilled or liquid-draw cylinders. This technology also reduces the possibility of elevated emissions, fuel system/engine/catalyst damage and the chance of a cylinder venting propane inside a building.

SafeStop follows close behind Pioneer Eclipse’s launch of SAFR Technology in 2016. The SAFR Technology system monitors the pressure between the air filter and the carburetor and maintains a steady air fuel ratio, regardless of the condition of the air filter.

“As the leader in propane technology we are constantly innovating to ensure the best machines possible,” said Brian Strickland, Senior VP of Commercial Operations. “Safety is a number one priority for us and we are proud to make SafeStop available to our customers and end users.”

SafeStop is available as an option on propane burnishers and strippers and comes standard on concrete machines.
