Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Houston Texas- DEF Closed loop system

Ok so based on current feed back; we are starting this new short series on Diesel Exhaust Fluid and its options on handling, storage, equipment, and more.

On the previous post, we learned that in order to meet Tier 2 emission standards, vehicle and engine manufacturers, have developed a technology called (SCR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction for diesel engines. These engines now use diesel exhaust fluid to convert the oxides of nitrogen (NOx) into harmless nitrogen and water, pertty cool don’t you think?

So, currently one of the biggest concerns right now is contamination. So, let’s talk about the distributor cycle:

One way–> That means that you buy the IBC totes, you fill them, transport them to your customer, you dispense diesel exhaust fluid and finally dispose or recycle. Now, this can get costly as you start doing this over and over again in servicing your customer.

Returnable / Refillable–>  Again, you buy the totes, you fill them, transport them to your customer, you dispense diesel exhaust fluid, and return or refill.

On-site refilling–> Buy the IBC totes, fill them, transport to the customer, dispense diesel exhaust fluid and refill on location.

Now, storing diesel exhaust fluid in intermediate bulk sizes, the choices are as follows:

55 gallon drums: Poly drums

275 gallon IBC Totes: Blow molded

330 gallon IBC totes: Blow molded

Now that you have your options for containers and how to refill them; how do you keep Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) from being contaminated?

Transliquid’s internal policy is to sell Diesel Exhaust Fluid with closed loop systems only; you will not find open systems available through us.

Open and closed systems:

I don’t need to reinforce the fact that DEF purity is essential. So a critical system consideration in maintaining DEF quality, is the the type of system used. Let’s look:

Closed:->This system have a valve coupling system that seals the container opening on drums and totes (IBC) to prevent dirt, debris, bugs, etc…from entering the container and contaminating the diesel exhaust fluid within. The DEF inside the container is sealed and secure throughout the container life cycle.  If you have any more questions on this system, Email us.

micromtic_756-008BThis is a Micromatic closed loop coupler for illustration purposes only.

Open–>system containers are drums, totes (IBC) that do not contain a valve insert in the container’s bung opening.

Now both systems are approved for DEF, but again; Transliquid’s policy is to only sell closed loop system to help you avoid contamination.

Transliquid Technologies – thinking different.

Intermediate Bulk Container or IBC Totes- Houston Texas. Reloaded..

Hi folks- you already know based on our writing style that we tend to be a little different in the way we approach our business and certainly in the way we treat our customers. With that being said, the inquiries about IBC Totes here in Houston have started coming in so let’s talk about what you need to know before you make your purchase.  Transliquid Technologies offers limited used stainless steel IBC totes for sale since our focus has been on the R&D of not just insulating jackets but also built in heating coils for your IBC totes.

However, it is important for you to know the details before you make your purchase.

First of all, we are discussing the standard IBC totes such as the 350 gallon an 550 gallon totes.  We are not discussing the blow molded plastic IBC totes, nothing wrong with them, just simply not the type of IBC we are referring to here.  So, this is the standard 304 Stainless Steel Intermediate Bulk Container.

Sometime back there was a flood of chinese totes that had entered the market. Now I am not going to write towards or against chinese totes, you may already have your own opinion on the matter but this entry will not be about that.  However, you need to know what you are purchasing.

Chinese totes are typically a little thinner gauge material, but fully meeting the industry standard and specification of the American made totes.  So, if you are buying used totes; make sure you ask who the manufacturer is, if that is important to you. Remember, all that we are doing here is giving you the information, what you do with it is up to you.

Second, most used IBC totes will be sold with the label “in-test”.  But wait, what does that mean to you? Be careful because “In test” could mean that you only have a week, a month, 6 months, etc.. until the tote needs to be re certified.  Yes, if you are using these totes for transport, it is your responsibility to have them in test and certified for transport. Now, re certifying is not a big deal, all you need is to purchase a kit and you can do it yourself.  The point is, no surprises. Learn the facts, ask the right questions, and make the right purchase.

Last, try to get a visual representation of what the totes looks like. Now, just to help you remember here, we are talking about ‘used’ IBC Totes.  You cannot imagine the number of times I came across stories of company ‘X’ selling a used tote to a customer that showed up so banged up, it looked like it had falling off the truck.  If you are a company, and looking to make a purchase for your own inventory, the samething applies so try to minimize the surprises. Some people will care and some people will not care about about the cosmetics of the used IBC tote.  But just know the facts.

You got questions, we are here to help. Call us or send us an email.

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.

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?
