The Safety and Security Benefits of a Bellows Transition Fitting

You’ve heard the adage, “if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Poly Processing believes this to be true 110% of the time when it comes to containment. Every single piece of a tank system needs to be completely secure to protect your workspace, your employees, the environment and the chemical being stored. Thus, when you install a tank-within-tank system like the SAFE-Tank with a sidewall fitting, it may be important to also install a bellows transition fitting.

Storing Liquid Ammonium Sulfate

Liquid ammonium sulfate (LAS) started as a liquid fertilizer that was applied to hard ground. Today, LAS has become widely accepted as a stable and effective source of ammonia for chloramination in wastewater treatment. Alternatives such as anhydrous or aqueous ammonia are hazardous, sometimes requiring pressurized storage tanks and special handling and safety procedures.

Proper Storage Protection for Your Diesel Exhaust Fluid

In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency mandated the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in diesel engines. In an SCR-equipped vehicle, the exhaust gas from the engine goes through a particulate filter to eliminate the soot and ash generated from burning diesel fuel.

The SCR system sprays diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) into the exhaust gas to help eliminate the NOx emissions in diesel engines. DEF is a combination of urea and deionized water, and the urea from the DEF and the exhaust gas react with a variety of metallic compounds to convert nitrogen dioxide and monoxide into nitrogen and water. 

It is critical that the diesel engine fluid stays pure. Impurities can cause the SCR system to stop, which will shut down the operation of the truck.

Poly Processing works with DEF manufacturers and distributors to provide reliable storage solutions that ensure their DEF stays 100% pure.
