UL 2080 and UL 2085 tanks – Helping you serve your customers faster

There seems a big push as we finish this second quarter and enter the third quarter this year, for UL approved fuel tanks.  We have seen the bottle-necks for UL 142 tanks, UL 2085, and UL 2080 all in their double wall configuration.  Most Texas fabricators have long lead times of 12 weeks and longer, which is a great thing because that means that the manufacturing sector is busy; on the other hand it is not so good news for you.

From experience, when you call us is because there is a project brewing or close to getting started.  You, as our customer, simply cannot afford to wait 4 months or longer. So, what is going on? One theory is that we are well underway to a healthy recovery and therefore, most smaller shops are still under staffed but the new orders are starting coming in. Most of these shops were top heavy with personnel, but when the downturn hit us; most of them eliminated internal positions.

These are all theories, but the truth is that long lead times are here, and it is a reality for most of us.

If you are looking for UL 2085 fireguard, UL 142 fuel tanks double wall, or UL 2080 fireshield tanks, we have promised our customers that we would maintain our distribution lead times as short as possible to help you, your projects, and your customers.  So, we will try to maintain those delivery times to under 6 weeks for the greater Houston area and surroundings. For example, a standard 10,000 gallon UL 2085 Fireguard right now ships in 6 weeks after receipt of approval drawings.  My hope is that the deliveries will help you expand your business and serve your customers better and faster.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid IBC Pumps Houston, Texas (video)

Hi folks, first of all thank you for all the emails with great questions. PIUSI has been offering DEF pumps in Europe since approximately 2004, and currently over 30,000 Diesel Exhaust Fluid pumps in service; I believe that says a lot.

PIUSI_DEF_PUMP-resized-600

Because of the great amount of questions and great response, we have put together a fun short video highlighting this DEF IBC Pump dispenser.  I personally like it because it is portable, AC power, you can easily move it to the next IBC tote, and it has a great proven record.

Anyway, enjoy the short video and leave us your comments; we always love to hear back from you.

By the way, we do plan on logging the service hours of the units already in service here in Houston.  If you are out of town, no worries; we can arrange shipping easily.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Houston – will older engines need to be retrofitted?

For now, all we know is that only EPA 2010 commercial and consumer vehicles equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology will use Diesel Exhaust Fluid.   Diesel Exhaust Fluid, also called DEF, is a solution made up of purified water and 32.5 percent automotive-grade urea that is used as a carrying agent for the ammonia needed to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from vehicles into nitrogen, water and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Diesel Exhaust Fluid is monitored for quality and certified by the American Petroleum Institute, ensuring that Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a stable, non-toxic, odorless and completely safe solution. The urea used for Diesel Exhaust Fluid is automotive-grade. Urea in additional forms is widely distributed for many other industrial and agricultural needs, including emissions control at public utilities and power plants.

BP’s Gulf Oil Spill: One Ship Captain’s Invention to Battle Tar Balls

I found this to be such an interesting article from the perspective of a lack of a back up plan should the inevitable occur, and indeed it has occured.  We have heard the stories about trying out every available solution, and creating new ones.  Even actor Kevin Costner has failed to truly grab BP’s attention.

“It’s a sign that either the resistance to ideas from (gasp!) the general public has waned or the feds and BP have finally gotten their collective acts together and have more people vetting the thousands of suggestions that are already in the pipeline. It also highlights the sad fact about this ongoing leak: At day 76, the feds and BP are still looking for solutions.”

HORD (Heavy Oil Recovery Device) seems to be the latest effort in this crisis.  The unfortunate is that this device didn’t exist prior to the Gulf oil spill. And there are probably at least a few more of these inventions we they could have used, back when BP was submitting its oil spill response plan.

TransLiquid Technologies is keeping a close eye on the developments of this new effort; we hope HORD does not disappoint.

Your thoughts on the following: Not having the experience of an oil spill of this magnitude, could BP have seen this in their oil spill response plan and have a solution ready to deploy?

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Houston – what is DEF’s placard symbol?

As Diesel Exhaust Fluid finds itself more into every corner of the United States; we are getting more and more questions.  As consumers; great questions should always be ask.  So, if I was buying Diesel Exhaust Fluid for my own fleet, how do I bring it in?  On the other hand, if you are a new distributor, how do you ship it to your customers?

Back to topic, I was with a customer last week where a conversation got started about wanting to distribute Diesel Exhaust Fluid.  We all know you can stop by your local truck stop and pay full retail for a new 2.5 jug of DEF but as a distributor buying in bulk; you are saving yourself some $$$$. How do you ship Diesel Exhaust Fluid to one of your own customers?  Do you have to pull special permits or place one these placars on the shipments?

The answer is simply no. The product itself is non-hazardous, DOT does not regulate it over the road.  So, use your regular couriers to ship bulk shipments of Diesel Exhaust Fluid to your customer. This applies to either drums, IBC Totes, 2.5 gallon cases, or larger bulk shipments.

5 Tips to contract packaging for bulk liquids

What do I need to send you to get a turn key quote to package a full truck load into IBC totes or drums?

I often get this question about TransLiquid’s contract packaging for bulk chemicals, lubricants, and fuels.  So we thought we put something up here on our blog to serve as basis for the basic requirements.

Packaging line

 

Here are 5 tip to help expedite the quote process:

1. Please provide name of the product and Material Safety Date Sheet or MSDS.

2. Please provide how the product will arrive at our packaging facility, tank truck, rail, or other.

3. Please provide if you will be providing your own packaging, ie. drums, IBC totes, etc… Transliquid can provide all the necessary packaging items per your request.

4. Please advice if long term storage will need to be taken into consideration.  We have inside storage where we can make room for your contract packaging.

5. if the shipment is heading internationally, please provide main ports of entry in outside country. if local, please provide exact addresses of distribution.

I hope the information above is helpful in helping you get a fast response back on any specific need you may have.

As always, we are to help in any way.

The TransLiquid team.
