Lubricant transfer pumps Houston – extreme cold

If you live in Texas; you know we have been hard hit with bone chilling temperatures.  Here in Houston, it has iced our roads and created all sort of problems for our lubricant distributors.

I wanted to post the following question because I know there are lots of you searching for Lube Transfer pumps that can handle not only extreme cold temperatures but also capable of transferring from a 55 gal drum when you know the lubricants have gelled up a bit due to the cold temperatures.

So, the question came in as follows:

“I am currently pumping from a drum and my current AC powered lube pump is not strong enough to build enough vacuum to pull from the top of my drum.  The product is 320 gear oil, do you have a lubricant pump readily available for pick up today?

 

Yes, in stock here in Houston and here is what it can do for you.

The 1520 Series of pumps is known for its superior performance when it comes to moving oil and lube products. When delivering or moving oil during the warm summer days or in the dead of winter, no other pump can match the 1520 series.

Delivered and got our customer back on the road doing what he needs to be doing.  As always, send us your questions and we will be glad to get back to you on this blog or email.  By the way, don’t forget the model, it is the 1500 series transfer Pumps for Lubricants and Oils.  Stay warm out there.

UL 142 Storage Tanks Houston – Double wall

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.

Piusi CUBE 70 & CUBE 56 – how diesel dispensers should think

Earlier this week I was talking to an international customer that had a need to track his diesel fuel consumption, and at the same time alleviate the need to forecast, and secure the availability of diesel fuel to their own fleet.  The conversation started with the Piusi CUBE 56 and Piusi CUBE 70 dispensers, both very capable of handling flow rates between 15-18 gallons per minute.

PIUSI Cube 70 & 56

These PIUSI CUBE pumps were developed for the distribution of Diesel fuel in a non-commercial application. Vehicles can be refuelled quickly and safety with CUBE fuel pumps. Options are available for measuring and recording the quantities dispensed.

The flow-meters mounted on CUBE pumps have sturdy mechanical readout systems whose reliability and easiness to use have been time proven over and over again.

After further discussing the topic deeper as to why this was important to them.  We found out that there was a very rooted problem; they lacked the ability to know how much and how many times their folk lift fleet of 75 units were stopping to refuel.
The current system did not allow them to track fuel dispensing, forecast fuel consumption, or even have a any security measures as to whom had access to the fuel. That conversation lead us to the PISUI CUBE 70 MC, with this dispenser our customer is going to be able to:

1.  control up to 50 users

2. and download data can into a PC both by means of the magnetic key and by cable connection.

3. Store data for the last 200 forklifts on its local memory

4. Accept vehicle registration numbers and odometer readings.

Call us to set up a demo or simply to ask questions; we look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your continued support.

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.

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.

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?
