An Atlantic Pacific Transport Vehicle recently experienced a saddle tank rupture in a remote part of Newfoundland. All our vehicles are equipped with The RuptureSeal™ and thankfully on this day, the driver used the RuptureSeal™ to safely seal the rupture fast! There was no environmental impact and the driver was able to drive to a repair garage. The money saved on cleanup of this one incident, has more than paid for the RuptureSeal™ in all our vehicles. I recommend you carry the RuptureSeal™ in all your vehicles!
I first saw the RuptureSeal at FDIC in 2014. It’s a very simple and ingenious product! Glenn provided me a sample that I demonstrate during BIG RIG RESCUE training. All the folks are impressed. It JUST WORKS. And works well. I see a very bright future for this product.”
This happened a little over a year ago, when one of our barrels was pierced by a piece of equipment, and back then, we had absolutely no way of stopping such a leak, so we had to use a manual pump to transfer the liquid from the pierced barrel into a new one. Fortunately it was not a dangerous product, or else I cannot imagine what the consequences could have been, had we been dealing with a hydrocarbon or any other flammable substance.” Every week I receive an email focusing on health and safety and this one spiked my interest and curiosity. There was an ad for a product that had just been on the popular TV show “Dragons’ Den” that was intended to do just that, stop leaks quickly. I directly went to take a look at the demonstration video and see who I could buy this product from, to realize it had been on the market for quite some time already. I bought a 3 unit kit of a product called The RuptureSeal™. Now, we are definitely ready to avoid these types of accidents and prevent any major leaks from happening. I recommend this product to all companies who wish to be proactive in preserving the environment.”
The Salisbury Fire Rescue responded to an accident where a tractor trailer jackknifed and ruptured its 110 gallon saddle tank. Shortly after our arrival, we deployed the RuptureSeal™ in the rupture, quickly and easily sealing off the leak. We were very impressed how this devise worked, exactly how they said it would. It made the scene safer and prevented a much larger environmental catastrophe. I would recommend to anyone that have a potential for a hazardous spill, have the RuptureSeal™ in their spill kits”.
We definitely keep the product on all our trucks. A vehicle inbound to the airport was struck on the undercarriage, rupturing the fuel tank. As the vehicle slowed down and approached the airport, it became apparent it had sustained a serious leak. Our Firemen responded, got under the van and installed the RuptureSeal™, stopping the discharge immediately. We were amazed at how well it worked!
The potential to revolutionize the way companies deal with liquid spills. Earlier this year, Glenn Cox presented to me his invention the RuptureSeal™. I feel this device has the potential to revolutionize the way companies like mine deal with liquid spills - minimizing their impact on the environment and saving lives.
This is the best thing I have bought that I hope I never have to use. (after purchasing 650 RuptureSeal™ units to equip his fleet and terminal network)
We see the value in a product like yours, which made our purchasing decision easy. We were pleased to purchase the RuptureSeal™ kits for each of our Environment division's vehicles and marine vessels as a quick response to limiting releases to the environment.
We were called to a tractor trailer crash on July 2, 2014 where we discovered that a saddle tank was still leaking. We used the RuptureSeal™ to bring the leak to a small drip. I believe this is a tool that every towing and trucking company should have on hand to prevent or limit a spill when possible. The cost to clean up this spill was $42,000 - if the RuptureSeal™ would have been used earlier, the cost would have been much less!
Through a good maritime infrastructure, the largest tankers can moor with Maasvlakte Olie Terminal. Some 240 tankers carry in total between 35-40 million tons of oil a year. This is a third of the total supply of crude oil in Rotterdam. MOT aims at ensuring the health, safety, the protection of it's employees as well as preventing damage to the environment and property. The RuptureSeal™ is one way for us to help ensure life safety and environmental protection.
The product is very easy to deploy and training for staff minimal. Accuworx is an emergency response and haz mat contractor. We were deployed to a release of mixed liquid goods from drums and totes due to vandalism. The liquids varied from acids to bases. Accuworx vacuumed up the liquid and deployed 3 different sized RuptureSeal™ units to totes that would allow for collection of product later in the project.
This sure beats the other products. Our crews and I have used the RuptureSeal™ out in the field on several occasions and on countless training exercises. We have always had great success with the product and have rolled it out to our transport division and now they carry ”the kit“ on each unit.
One of the most effective leak sealing devices that I have ever seen - and after being on the fire department for a quarter of a century the times that I could have used this I can't begin to count.
