See us at the California CUPA Forum in San Francisco

If you are taking in the California CUPA Forum Annual Training Conference next week at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, you’ll want to be sure to take in a session at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, titled, Storage Tank Maintenance for Today’s New Fuels.

Tanknology’s Brad Hoffman, VP of Engineering and R&D, will be a speaker in the session, along with Wayne Geyer and Lorri Grainawi of the Steel Tank Institute.
Brad will be discussing PEI’s RP900 recommended UST Inspection and Maintenance practices and RP1200 protocol for Testing and Verification of Spill, Overfill, Leak Detection and Secondary Containment Equipment at UST Facilities; UST cleaning and removal methods; and sharing some actual video results from Tanknology’s TankCam® and PetroScope® video inspections of actual in-use USTs. Brad first shared some of these video clips at the National Tanks Conference in Denver last fall, and will be adding to them with new clips in this presentation at Cal-CUPA.

As a UST operator, it’s a session you won’t want to miss – 10 AM Wednesday in the Regency A room.

Be sure to also stop by and see us on the exhibit floor, where we will also have actual tank inspection video that you can view up close and personal. You will find us in Booth #30.

Three Tanknology executives named to PEI Committees

With the New Year came a new President of the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI). Phil Farrell, President of Double Check Company of Kansas City, MO, assumed the leadership of the industry’s largest association of companies that manufacture, distribute and service petroleum equipment.

Double Check Company is a strong partner of Tanknology, as one of our Master Alliance Partners (MAPs) in the U.S. We congratulate Phil on this new leadership role with PEI and know that the association is in good hands.

One of Phil’s first acts was to name members to PEI’s 22 various committees. Three Tanknology executives were among those named this week:
  • Brian Derge, Vice President of the Eastern Division, is a member of the Overfill, Release Detection and Release Prevention Equipment Testing Committee.
  • Brad Hoffman, Vice President of Research & Development is a member of the UST System Inspection and Maintenance Committee.
  • Eddie Campbell, Regional Manager of the Southeastern US, is a member of the Safety Committee.
We are pleased to have the opportunity for our executives to participate with PEI in these important industry committees.
