Newspaper Article from 1986 on Krueger Sentry Gauge

I was doing some spring cleaning and organizing, and I found a treasure trove of classic Krueger Sentry Gauge documents, articles, photos, etc…

I will be posting some of this stuff over the next few weeks/months.  Some of it dates all the way back to 1943.

First up is an old Newspaper Article from 1986, when we only had 2 full time employees and one part timer.

Industry News November 2012

Industry News- Petroleum Equipment, Safety, Regulations, Industry Trends, etc…

1- Keep Biodiesel Stable and Flowing

2- Check your Fuel Oil Tanks, take preventative measures

3- NFPA full list of codes

4- Changes to the Fire Pump Standards

5- Are EPA and DEP regulations on AST’s, UST’s, and related items hindering Economic Growth?

Add a liquid level gauge, overfill alarm, or both to your above ground storage tank and give yourself an easy/inexpensive layer of protection against spills and other accidents.

Fraud/Complaint Paymentonecorp and Unique Web Listing.com,LLC

Our AT&T Bill has had a monthly charge on it for $36.87 per month for some time now.  We just now picked up on it and have no idea what it is for.  This fraudulent charge is from a  combination of three companies.  Payment One Corp , Unique Web Listing, and AT&T.  I am including AT&T in the problem since they are the one billing us.  They claim that they have nothing to do with it, but if that is the case someone needs to explain to me why it is on their bill with their logo on the top.  AT&T needs to re-evaluate their billing process.

We have our phone service through AT&T and we advertise with AT&T.  That may all be ending now unless AT&T does something to make me feel better about doing business with them.

Check your next AT&T Bill, and look for the PaymentOneCorp charges:

Krueger Sentry Gauge 70th Anniversary

Krueger Sentry Gauge Founded in 1942:
  • Archie Comics were First Released in 1942
  • Casablanca and Bambie came out in 1942
  • Harrison Ford, Paul McCartney, and Jimi Hendrix were born in 1942
  • The first digital computer known as the Atanasoff-Berry Computer, or ABC, was conceptualized in 1937. In 1942, the invention came to fruition and was built at Iowa State University. John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry created this computer. It featured binary arithmetic, dual processors, regenerative memory and separate functions for computing and memory
  • On a personal note, when I started working for Krueger Gauge in 1994 at the age of 18, no one knew what the “intra-net” really was, and now Search Engine Optimization and social networking are my primary jobs.
  • Here is a funny video from 1994 that shows how far we have come in the last 18 years. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUs7iG1mNjI
In April, Krueger Sentry Gauge celebrated their 70th year of being in business, manufacturing liquid level mechanical gauges for the petroleum industry.
The company was founded during the upheaval and uncertainty of World War II and in this time of economic ups and downs the Krueger Gauge Family is proud to not only announce our 70th anniversary, but also re-state our policy on American Made products.  Not only is our gauge manufactured in Green Bay Wisconsin, nearly every component on our gauge is sourced from American Manufacturers.  We take pride in being American Made and will continue to take this hard stance on supporting our local economy. 

We would like to thank everyone who has made this milestone possible. It is truly a blessing to have customers and vendors that Krueger Sentry Gauge can rely and depend on for support.

Level Gauge Web Store Tutorial

Following up the announcement of our new web store, I would like to draw your attention to this video.  I go thru the process of ordering a custom liquid level gauge using our new store.   It is a short tutorial that shows the general functionality of the custom gauge configurator.

Link to our new level gauge store here.

New Krueger Sentry Gauge Webstore

The new web store is live.

http://level-gauges.ksentry.com/

This link takes you to the public store, which shows list pricing/end user pricing for our level gauges.  Wholesale customers / Distributors can call us for a special wholesale login which gives access to special pricing.   Now, you can fully configure a liquid level gauge through our store, regardless of how much customizing you need to do.

A quick walk thru:

  • On the first page, you see the 4 main categories.  Level, Leak, Overfill, and Parts.  For the sake of our demonstration, click on liquid level gauges.
  • On this page, you will see the 5 different gauges we offer for reading liquid level.  Click on the Therma Gauge.
  • On the product page, you have the choice between selecting pre configured gauges, or Configure Custom Gauge.  The pre configured gauges are common part numbers and then just some random stuff.  The Configure Custom Gauge link is the cool part, so lets start there.
  • On this page, you can select every gauge option that we have available for the gauge.  Certain options eliminate other options.  So if you select an option that conflicts with another option, the system will “grey out” or “change” what you are able to select.  (Example, max tank depth is usually 144 inches.  But if you select a gauge with stainless floats, the max tank depth is reduced to 120 inches.

Krueger Sentry Gauge Family Focus- Amy, Adam, and Ali Ambrosius

03-22-12- Hello, my name is Ali.  I am 14 months young and lovin it.  My mom is pushing for me to start acting like an adult, but I say why rush it.  They want me to start talking, but when you get everything you want just by point and whining I figure why bother.   Plus, every time I cry at night someone comes in and cuddles with me.  So I figure why not try it again tomorrow night.

I am a pretty active girl with lots of hobbies.  I play Paddy Cake, I dance, and I love to play outside in the snow as much as possible except on Sundays.  Because Sunday is when the Green Bay Packers play football and I love the Packers.  All in all though, my favorite thing to do is annoy my Ma and Pa.  I got them totally figured out.  I just go looking for the two loudest objects I can find, and bang them together.  Drives them bonkers.

I know some girls are picky eaters.  My mom is super picky, but not me.  I love those goldfish crackers, but I will eat just about anything you put in front me.  I even tried “Mussels” once.  Still not sure about those…

Broken Gauges? Order a Krueger Gauge with Gauge Guard

OSHA Cites Coomes Oil & Supply and Florida Rock & Tank Lines in August BP

Gas Station Explosion in St. Augustine

4:45 PM, Feb 21, 2012   |   0  comments

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration today announced Coomes Oil & Supply Inc. has been cited in August’s explosion at a BP gas station.

According to an OSHA news release, a delivery driver for Florida Rock & Tank Lines was refilling an above-ground gasoline storage tank that had a broken gauge.

The tank overflowed. Vapors then combined with heat from the running delivery truck to trigger the explosion.

The OSHA inspection found that the gas station and Florida Rock & Tank Lines refilled the tank despite the inoperable liquid level gauging system.

OSHA has proposed a $70,000 fine be leveled against Florida Rock & Tank Lines along with a citation for one willful violation.

This violation is for “failing to provide the delivery driver to determine if the storage tank had enough capacity for additional gasoline.”

A “willful violation” is one committed with intentional knowing or voluntary disregard for the law’s requirements, according to the release.

In addition to Florida Rock & Tank Lines, Coomes Oil & Supply has also been issued a citation by OSHA.  Coomes Oil & Supply has been cited for failing to provide employees and delivery drivers a mean to determine the gasoline levels in the above-ground storage tank, a “serious violation” according to OSHA.

Too often broken gauges are ignored for years, never being repaired or replaced, the underlying danger going unnoticed.  As the story above goes to prove, the danger is all to real.  Don’t ignore that broken gauge.

In order to prevent breakage and weathering to a gauge, order a Krueger Sentry Level Gauge with the optional inner Glass Calibration and Gauge Guard.  These two components, when combined, severely limit the possibility of weathering and breakage of your liquid level gauge.

Krueger Sentry Gauge Family Focus – Cody and Trenton

02-22-12- Hello, my  name is Trenton. My dada Cody Schmidt works for Krueger Sentry Gauge. I am 16 months old and I weigh in at 24lbs.  My favorite Movie is Toy Story 3,  but recently I watched Ice Age, and the dinosaurs were really neat.  I am still trying to decide if I liked them or not.  (Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but they were a little scary)

I love to climb up on the couch.  It is pretty high up.  So when I get up there I like to puff up my chest, hold up my hands, and say “Ta-dah”

The other day Dad got a new pet snake.  It is a Ball Python named Violet.  I think I like her, so I walked up to the tank and said “Snake, sssssss.”  As far as introductions with snakes go, I think it went pretty good.

My favorite foods are Bananas and Apples.  I run around the house asking for them “Nana, Apple”…  And as you can see in the picture above, birthday cake is pretty awesome too.  Can’t wait for birthday number two.  More cake, yippy…
