First-ever certified fuel storage bladders available

May 3, 2016

Certified Bladder Tanks

SEI Industries is the first company in the world to manufacture collapsible fuel tanks (bladders) that are certified to a national standard by an independent accredited third-party. This certification provides assurance to users that their temporary fuel storage tanks have been constructed to meet strict standards for material properties which, in turn, provides better environmental protection, longer service life and a reduced carbon footprint.

SEI’s King series of tanks – the Arctic King, Desert King and Jungle King – are now all certified by Intertek, to meet the CAN/CSA-B837-14 standard.

Certified secondary containment berms

SEI Industries’ Arctic-Shield berm liners are now Intertek-certified to meet the requirements of CAN/ULC-S668-12, making SEI the first company to manufacture a berm that meets this new standard.

What is CAN/ULC-S668-12?

CAN/ULC-S668-12 is the standard for liners used for secondary containment of above ground flammable and combustible liquid tanks. The standard sets forth minimum requirements for the material properties and performance of liners used for secondary containment under and around the area of tanks that are installed above ground for the storage of flammable and combustible liquids.

Drought conditions favor the use of a helicopter dip tank like the Heliwell

June 2, 2015

Heliwell helicopter dip tank

California’s wildfire crews face a unique situation – the need to conserve precious water while ensuring that an adequate supply is available for emergency response. With ocean saltwater not usable (due to corrosion of equipment), the crews must be able to access freshwater sources like rivers, reservoirs, lakes and even swimming pools. But, with low levels, access to these traditional sources can be difficult or even impossible.

Metal drums a poor choice for helicopter slinging

April 1, 2015

Double Drum collapsible fuel drum for helicopter slinging

For decades now, metal drums have been the most common method of transporting diesel and jet fuel by helicopter to remote sites such as the top of a mountain or deep into a wilderness area.

Unfortunately, drums are a poor choice considering they were never intended for this use and carry a number of inherent risks including injury to workers who have to handle the heavy drums on a daily basis and leaks that result from minor punctures. While these leaks may not be significant, when multiplied by the sheer number of drums in use, a substantial amount of fuel is being released into the surrounding environment every day from small leaks. On the positive side, none of this needs to occur any longer.

HPARS Now Available for Civilian Use

January 7, 2015

High Pressure Aviation Refueling System HPARS

Originally designed for use by military forces, SEI Industries’ High-Pressure Aviation Refueling System (HPARS) is now available for commercial use. The first company to purchase an HPARS has decided to use it in a mining application on Baffin Island in Canada’s far north.

Best defined as a durable, portable method of fueling and de-fueling jet fuel to and from aircraft and fuel tanker trucks, the HPARS uses a self-priming centrifugal pump driven by an electric motor with filtration provided by a horizontal filter separator (per API 1581 5th).

Superiority of Jungle King fuel storage bladders confirmed

SEI recently visited the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Bogue Field to inspect its 20,000 USG Jungle King collapsible fuel bladder that has been in service for 18 months. The tank had been supplied to the USMC for evaluation purposes.

World’s first standard for collapsible fuel tanks released

October 1, 2014

Arctic King tank sits inside protective berm

In July 2014, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) released the first edition of the CAN/CSA B-837 collapsible fabric storage tanks (bladders) regulation. This new standard represents the world’s first standard for collapsible bladder fuel storage tanks or pillow tanks.

For years, regulators, operators and manufacturers in Canada had no credible reference document that detailed the minimum requirements for the use of these storage bladders. This new standard provides industry with a reliable source of information to ensure that the use of collapsible fuel bladder tanks meets the challenges of Canada’s harsh arctic conditions which is where they are typically deployed.
