UL 142 and Diesel Exhaust Fluid – a new package is born

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.

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.

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?
