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.

How To Store De-Icing Fluids Safely

Winter is approaching fast. With below freezing temperatures and snowstorms affecting millions of people each year, municipalities need to be ready to clear roadways and maintain equipment. De-icing fluid is used to break down ice and frost on roadway surfaces and aircraft.

The substance used for de-icing depends on its application, the amount of snowfall, the municipality’s preferences, and winter temperatures. A variety of chemicals are used in the de-icing process, including brine, magnesium chloride, propylene glycol, and ethylene glycol. Brine is the most popular of these chemicals, but it can damage vehicles or rebar on roadways.

The Latest Advances in Removing PFAS from Water

PFAS has made headlines recently and caused concern because these compounds have been detected in drinking water supplies across the country. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry has determined that PFAS accumulation in the human body can have adverse health effects, and in response, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set a drinking water lifetime health advisory limit of 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA and PFOS. These are some of the lowest limits ever established for a contaminant.

Storage Challenges of Wastewater Treatment Chemicals

Wastewater treatment requires more aggressive chemicals—and in larger amounts—than municipal drinking water treatment. As a result, it is vital to properly store the chemicals used in the wastewater treatment process.

Why Are Water Treatment Plants Converting from Chlorine Gas to Bleach?

There are several types of chlorine sources that water treatment plants can use: chlorine gas, liquid sodium hypochlorite, or onsite production. Chlorine gas can be more cost effective, but a growing number of states are converting to bulk sodium hypochlorite or bleach. If chlorine gas is more economical, why would water treatment plants convert to sodium hypochlorite?
