DKB joins NESSARA

Posted by Kelly Burke on Jul 16, 2014 11:08:32 AM


We just got this in the mail - NESSARA, or the New England Service Station and Automotive Repair Association is a non profit group that works very hard on behalf of small, independent service stations, repair facilities, and similar companies in the industry to keep them informed of policy changes that can affect their business, and lobbies  against legislation that hurts small business' bottom lines.

Oil Eater comes in Second Place in Waste Min's 2013 Industrial Degreaser Ratings

Posted by John Presti on Apr 2, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Oil Eater product line

 

The Waste Minimization forum (wastemin.com) recently published its "2013 Industrial Degreaser Ratings" report. They tested the top 15 general purpose degreasers/cleaners, then ranked their performance, reported their pricing, and any hazard warnings relevant to the products. You can read their entire infographic on the study here: http://www.wastemin.com/discuss/index.php?threads/industrial-degreaser-performance-ratings-how-the-top-15-degreasers-stack-up.6/#.UzsDeKhdVRY  - they had some interesting results that challenge some conventional wisdom on what makes a good cleaner/degreaser - definitely worth the read.

The number two finisher in their study was Oil Eater Cleaner and Degreaser (which we're proud to be a distributor of). Even better, they came in at half the cost of the first place finisher. Oil Eater is water based, non hazardous cleaner that can be used on anything from gettin grease stains out of laundry to truck washing, to brake parts cleaning. In the Waste Min study, Oil Eater also produced less rust than a traditional solvent based degreaser.  

If you want to learn more about Oil Eater you can visit their website at www.oileater.com or if you'd like try it out, we do have limited free samples available. Give us a call or fill out the contact form to the right for more info or to get a free sample while supplies last.

Don't Forget to beat the DEF Increase!

Posted by Kelly Burke on Mar 26, 2013 2:15:00 PM

Just a reminder on beating the DEF increase coming April 1st......As you know, this is the time of year where we start seeing increases in the DEF market.  1/3 of DEF is comprised of Urea. The reason this time of year causes an uptick in DEF prices is that Urea's primary use is as fertilizer in the agricultural sector, and competition for urea reflects on the commodities market side, and that results in an increase in its cost.

It looks like the market went up in March anywhere from $.03 to $.05/gallon. Dennis K Burke will be holding current pricing until April 1, so dont forget to get those orders in this week! I will keep you informed for April and the other upcoming months in terms of what impact the Urea market will have on your DEF pricing.

Feel free to give me a call to discuss, 617-884-7800.  If you would like to place an order (or an additional order) before the month is out, you can do so with customer service at 617-884-7800 or by emailing [email protected]

November Lube News - Valvtect Diesel Guard Tank Maintenance

Posted by John Presti on Nov 1, 2012 10:56:00 AM

Pre-Winter Tank Maintenance Program

Up to 50% of all winter diesel vehicle breakdowns can be attributed to water and bacteria (bugs) being pumped from the main diesel storage tank into the vehicle. This can cause plugged fuel filters, equipment downtime and lost revenue.

THE DIESEL GUARD PROGRAM

The ValvTect Diesel Guard three-step pre-winter tank maintenance program is designed to keep your fleet up and running this winter by safely removing the two biggest causes of winter shutdowns; water (ice crystals) and bacteria.

 

STEP1.

PUMP OUT EXCESS WATER

Over time, water builds up in diesel storage tanks creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Even when entrained in a vehicle's diesel fuel, water will begin to freeze when the fuel temperature reaches 32º F., forming ice crystals that can plug fuel filters. First, pump out and properly disposed of excess water in your diesel storage tanks.

 

STEP 2.

CHEMICALLY REMOVE RESIDUAL WATER

After pumping, any remaining water is removed by treating the next two or three diesel fuel deliveries with Diesel Guard Tank Dri, a water dispersant and freeze point depressant. Diesel Guard Tank Dri is a non-alcohol water dispersant and deicer, formulated to safely remove a controlled amount of water from the diesel fuel's storage tank.

* Safely Removes Moisture

* Reduces the Freeze Point of Water

* Non-Alcohol and Non-Flammable

* One Gallon Treats 7,500 Gallons of Diesel Fuel

STEP 3.

KILL BACTERIA AND BIO-CONTAMINATION

Once all water is removed, "shock" treat the tank with BioGuard Micro-Biocide to kill bacteria and other bio-contamination. BioGuard is the industry's most effective biocide. Spare fuel dispenser filters should be on site to filter out dead bacteria after BioGuard treatment.

* Kills Bacteria and Algae

* Fast Acting

* Ultra Low Sulfur Compliant

* One Gallon Treats 2,500 Gallons of Diesel Fuel
