The UL-142 above ground fuel tank, is the work horse of most of our customers, and in this case we took the UL 142 design to a higher level by adding a heavy duty industrial insulation for a liquid product that easily hardens under a lower temperature range; the challenge was to be able to keep it fluid while staying away from the cost of adding heaters.
On that same note; I have been recently asked about bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid and carbon steel storage tanks; and while initially the ISO 22241 standard for Diesel Exhaust Fluid calls for the incompatible approach with carbon steel tanks, there is now a new liner that we are offering through our group of partners that has been independently tested and proven to resist corrosion and does not contaminate Diesel Exhaust Fluid. This new epoxy internal liner can easily be applied into our cylindrical storage tanks for the bulk storage of Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
So, what you get is an above ground bulk storage tank that is heavily insulated; we know that heat plays a very important factor for the shelf life of DEF, coupled with a heating/cooling system, and an internal liner approved specifically for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). That is our new approach at delivering a quality, approved, and durable above ground storage solution that is still less expensive than a Stainless Steel tank but specifically tailored to meet the demands for the Diesel Exhaust Fluid market.
Enjoy the video and let us know what you think; your feed back is what lead us to develop this package. Thank you !
The UL 142 storage tank is a work horse for us and for our customers. This is the tank that the majority of our existing customer base chooses because the small increase in price from the non-UL 142 version makes it so tempting and worth while to purchase.
These tanks are normally in stock, and if not; only allow 5-7 business days to become available.
The amount of flexibility that you have with these UL 142 tanks is far superior with Transliquid Technologies. From Diesel Exhaust Fluid approved coatings, amazing performance from our transfer pumps, flow meters, industrial insulation with heat tracing built in, all the way to the special paint packages available in a array of colors. Here, you decide how you want it built.
The 515 gallon UL 142 storage tank, a workhorse that adds durability, flexibility, and economic sense.
Thank you for reading our Blog.

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.
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?
