Tank Monitors Designed for Diesel Exhaust Fluid


The growth of the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) market around the world is expected to continue for the next several years. Market research suggests that DEF sales should grow yearly at 5.42 percent (CAGR) between 2018 and 2022, according to a summary published at 360 Market Updates. The growth is driven by increased penetration of commercial vehicles with updated diesel engines, which spray DEF into the exhaust stream to convert harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions into nitrogen, water and a small amount of carbon dioxide.

Equipment used in DEF storage and dispensing must be made with materials that won't cause contamination, as the solution is comprised of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water. DEF can cause dispensing equipment to clog outside its optimum temperature range of 12-86 F. Husky Corporation and BJE engineers understand the nuances of handling DEF, so their product designs use 100 percent ISO recognized DEF compatible materials.

BJE DEF Tank Monitors and Alarms

With the increase in DEF use by commercial vehicles, and growing demand for bulk handling options, BJE is now offering a complete line of DEF-compatible tank monitors. These products add to the company's established and trusted line of tank monitors and monitors.

Get Ready for Oil Baron: Truly No Comparison for Removing Petroleum Stains or Spills


When you work with oil, grease or gasoline you know how tough it is to clean up. Most of the products you've probably come across to clean petroleum stains or spills run short in one area or another. Finally, there will be a product for which there is really no comparison on the market to handle this problem.

Husky Corporation will soon introduce Oil Baron, the most environmentally safe and fastest way to get rid of hydrocarbon spills and stains, rendering them non-flammable within minutes. And what remains is non-hazardous, requiring no special disposal.

There will be two versions of the product. Oil Baron (available in foam or liquid form) and Oil Baron Plus for the toughest stains on most hard industrial surfaces. Check out both products at https://www.husky.com/husky/oil-baron/oil-baron/

Both products use naturally harvested microbes that literally EAT hydrocarbons.That's right. The microbes are dormant inside the packaging. But they wake up immediately when applied directly to oil, gas, diesel, jet fuel, transmission fluid, antifreeze, brake fluid and other hydrocarbons. The microbes munch on the petroleum products and digest them. What's left is harmless water and carbon dioxide that can be wiped up or washed down the drain. The entire process takes a matter of minutes and minimal effort. Here is a picture showing what the concrete at a gas station forecourt looked like before Oil Baron Plus was applied to a lot of old and deep petroleum stains, then what it looks like afterward.

 
Oil Baron works much faster, much more effectively, and more safely than products that contain enzymes which only disperse the petroleum, but don't eliminate the spill. When solvents are used on petroleum, the residue is still hazardous material with costly steps required for disposal.

That is not the case with Oil Baron, which ELIMINATES the petroleum spill quickly and safely. We'll be sharing a lot more about Oil Baron as the product roll-out gets going. But Husky believes this is a product the petroleum dispensing industry, the automotive repair market, and anyone that works with petroleum products has been waiting for.

Nearly 75 years later, I’m proud that our company has continued to adhere to their values while becoming the world’s premier designer, manufacturer and seller of service station delivery systems.  In my new role, I look forward to working with the sales team to intensify our level of focus, as we continue to meet and exceed our customer’s needs.”
