Krueger Liquid Level Gauge Glass Calibration

Solid Glass Calibration for Krueger Sentry Liquid Level Gauge

Krueger Sentry Gauge has added a new Option for the liquid level Therma Gauge.  The exposed calibration on top of the gauge is now available in an ALL GLASS OPTION.  Our new level gauge calibration is made of thick/durable glass.  This will make the gauge more durable when it is outside and exposed to the elements.  No more cracked, cloudy, warped, or discolored plastic tops.  This new glass gauge will hold up to virtually any amount of sun exposure and heat.

Order the new Solid Glass Calibration as either an add on option for your new gauges, or order the Solid Glass Repair Kit to upgrade your current gauge in the field.  Currently this new glass level  gauge is only available for the Krueger Sentry Therma Gauge model Type H (other models coming soon).

We hope to have the new product in hand and ready to supply to you by February 1st, 2015.  A small quantity of samples are available now to distributors upon request.

Maine heating oil dealer shows uncommon generosity

Heating Oil Tale Moves US to Generosity

from HeatingOil.com by Jackson Stone
Maine heating oil dealer Ike Libby touched the nation's heart after delivering heating oil to an elderly couple who could not afford to pay.

A newspaper story on a struggling heating oil dealer’s benevolence has sparked a national outpouring of generosity for cash-strapped oil heat customers, the Huffington Post reports.

Ike Libby runs Hometown Energy, a fuel oil delivery business in Dixfield, Maine. Like countless heating oil dealers around the country, Libby is no stranger to the hardship faced by many of his customers and the difficulties they face paying winter fuel oil bills.

When pensioner Robert Hartford tried to hand over the title to his 16-year-old Lincoln Town Car in exchange for heating oil to prevent him and his disabled wife from freezing, Libby filled their tank without payment, rather than seeing the elderly couple go cold.

But he never expected the outpouring of generosity that would follow.

The story appeared on the front page of Saturday’s New York Times and appears to have struck a chord with readers across the country, many of whom immediately wanted to help.

On Monday morning, when Libby went to work, the cards, checks and credit card donations started rolling in. They now total more than $100,000 in cash to help heat impoverished customers’ homes, the Lewiston Sun Journal reports.

“I didn’t expect this to happen,” he said. “You can’t even put it into words. America’s got a heartbeat and we are hearing it.”

One of the letters read: “A donation to Hometown Energy. Good luck, thanks for caring.” It was a check for $5000.

“We struggle as a business,” Libby told WCSH. I’m getting some credit for this. [But] I’ve just been trying to do my job.”

An emotional Libby said he had set up a trust account for the money to make sure it goes to the people who need it most. Despite a near-record mild winter, heating oil prices remain stubbornly high on strong export demand, fears of supply disruptions from refinery closures and volatile world oil markets.

Pennsylvania Aboveground Storage Tank Regulations

Inspectors from the state Department of Environmental Resources are ramping up efforts to find unregistered fuel storage tanks, as one local farmer discovered when he was recently fined by the DEP because he had not obtained a permit for his 8,000-gallon tank.

Why the increased scrutiny?

According to DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday, there was no one specific instance that sparked the agency’s actions to seek out unregistered fuel tanks.

“This is something that the department has been aware of for some time,” Sunday said, “and with the winter months coming up, we wanted to get everyone on board.”

The DEP’s effort, Sunday said, “is to make sure we register both in-ground and above-ground tanks that are not currently registered.”

So in October, DEP sent letters to 1,172 fuel oil providers across the state asking them to help find unregistered tanks. Fuel distributors are required to ask the tank owner to provide a DEP-issued registration certificate before any fuel (gasoline, diesel fuel or kerosene) can be placed in the tank.

“If the distributors deliver product to an unregistered storage tank, they are also liable for any damages” that may occur if fuel escapes from a leaky tank, Sunday said.

If DEP is not aware of unregistered tanks, it cannnot conduct routine inspections on them and the tanks could pose a threat to the environment if the tank or its pipes fail.

Pennsylvania DEP is ramping up it’s AST regulations.
First off, be sure your tank is registered:
Once your tank is registered, you need to be sure that you pass regular inspections.

Barrel Gauge – Now Available in All Stainless Steel Construction

The Liquid Level Barrel Gauge is now available in

All Stainless Steel Construction.

The Type B-Barrel Gauge can be purchased with all stainless steel wetted components. This includes the bushing, the wetted rods, and the floats.

In order to increase the level gauge’s compatibility with more aggressive liquids (including Caustics, DEF, E85, and more…) this gauge also comes standard with viton gaskets.  The internal piece of the calibration is made of glass.  This alternative gives the plastic calibration added resistance to internal fumes and all types of heat.

    DEF -Diesel Exhaust Fluid Level Gauges

    I have done some research, and I am proud to announce that the current Krueger Liquid Level Gauge product line will be fully compatible with the new DEF that will be hitting markets soon.  I recommend any one of the following three material configurations.

    • SSR – Stainless Steel Rods, the rest of the gauge is standard.  This is compatible, and the least expensive option.
    • AllSS – Stainless Rods, Stainless Floats, and a Stainless Bushing.  This DEF level gauge is a tank.  The top model of our gauges.
    • AllPlastic – Peek Rods, HDPE Float, PVC bushing.  This Diesel Exhaust Fluid Level gauge is extremely corrosion resistant and is fully compatible with DEF.
