We are our own team. We build our trucks and engines with our own hands and rely on good products […]

A recent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) laboratory study suggests that “many” of the sump pumps for underground storage tanks at gas stations could corrode more rapidly than expected. NIST, a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce, duplicated conditions similar to those found around the sump pump for tank systems to determine the potential corrosion rate. The study “demonstrated severe corrosion rapidly eating through 1 millimeter of wall thickness per year on steel alloy samples exposed to ethanol and acetic acid vapors,” NIST said. “Gas stations may need to replace submersible pump casings, typically made of steel or cast iron, sooner than expected.” The laboratory study was prompted by recent reports from field inspectors in nine states suggesting there were “many” rapidly corroding gasoline storage tank components such as sump pumps, NIST said in an announcement. The incidents are “generally” linked to the use of […]
