Transporting large quantities of fuel to remote sites is a challenge faced across the globe. Notably so in areas of Canada, where the terrain doesn’t allow for ground transport of fuels. And the same is true throughout the world.
Bulk transport of fuel had, until recently, been transported by flying oil drums to the location. Oil drums present a slew of negative effects for the environment, logistics, and economics. They have a high chance of spills and leaking. They can often be abandoned after use to avoid the cumbersome and costly destruction. They can often cause damage to the inside of crafts if they are not secured properly during flight. Once the fuel reaches its destination, the empty drums need to be flown back out of the site, effectively doubling the cost of fuel delivery.

SEI Industries chose the recent PDAC 2017 tradeshow to unveil its latest spill prevention product, the Spill Monkey. Offering a number of advantages over existing models, the Spill Money acts as a hydrocarbon capture device to prevent contaminates from a spill reaching the surrounding environment.
“With its patented filter media and unique design, Spill Monkey is a robust reliable guard for berms and a great barrier against oil and hydrocarbon contamination,” says Paul Reichard, SEI’s Remote Site/Environmental division manager.

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 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.

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.

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.

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).
