Mark Shaw: One Very Dry Demo

Mark Shaw demos Ultra-Ever Dry, a liquid-repellent coating that acts as an astonishingly powerful shield against water and water-based materials. At the nano level, the spray covers a surface with an umbrella of air so that water bounces right off. Watch for an exciting two-minute kicker.

Fire and Explosion Caused by Human Error and Equipment Failure

I’ve spent much of my 40+ year career in the petroleum and chemical industries. One might say I’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to accidents. Unfortunately, I’ve have firsthand experience with the loss of good friends and coworkers due to what I call the human factor.

The human factor is at work every second of every day in every type of business and personal setting. It’s when hard working, good people get careless while performing routine everyday tasks. For whatever reason, a procedure intended to protect personnel is intentionally bypassed or carelessly forgotten and in most instances it involves only one or two steps being bypassed or forgotten that allows all of the stars to line up, and then tragedy strikes without warning which in most cases lead to serious injury and sometimes death.

I’ve spent much of my career using technology to create iron clad solutions that overcome human error and equipment failure in hazardous types of operations found in every day businesses that we are all familiar with. One such business is the loading of fuel onto large tanker trucks that take fuel to the local gas station that all of us pump into our cars. One such iron clad solution developed by Frontline Environmental addresses the more than 1500 spills that happen every day throughout the United States in truck, marine and aviation fuel loading facilities. The GuardDog™ is a patented technology designed to overcome human error and equipment failure during the loading of fuel at high transfer rates of more than 10 gallons per second. In “real-time” GuardDog™ continuously monitors the fuel delivery equipment to determine if it is performing properly or not. If not, the GuardDog™ will take a preemptive action to prevent the spill accident within 750 milliseconds. The Department of Defense and the USAF determined GuardDog™ to be 100% effective in eliminating spills over a 12 month period during a case study and real world test conducted at Travis Air Force Base. Due to its success Travis AFB has since standardized on GuardDog™ and is protected 24/7 365 days a year from spills.

For more on GuardDog™ and other bullet proof solutions that protect life, the environment and assets give me a call at 707-331-3503.

OMNTEC: Automatic Tank Gauging and Leak Detection Systems

OEL8000II Tank Gauging and Leak Detection System:

The OEL8000II is a comprehensive tank-gauging and leak-detection system that can simultaneously monitor product levels, water levels, temperatures and leaks in up to 8 tanks. With advanced technology and enhanced features, the OEL8000II is suitable for a variety of gauging and leak-detection applications.

Leak and Level Detection: '

OMNTEC’s LU and LPD leak-detection and overfill-alarm systems provide continuous, accurate monitoring in a variety of applications. Typical applications are reservoirs, sumps, dry interstitial spaces and dispenser pans. These easy-to-install controllers alarm for in tank levels and leak conditions. The LU controllers are capable of accepting up to 9 sensors for high level and leak detection. The LPD controllers are capable of accepting up to 9 sensors for in tank levels and product distinguishing leak detection. The electro-optic sensors used with these controllers allow users to easily cycle all sensors through a simulated leak, with the press of a single button. This feature eliminates the need to remove the sensor from its location.
