environrecvEnvironmental Recovery Corporation processes a wide variety of non-hazardous waste materials generated by industries located in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S. This includes municipal/governmental clean-ups, runoffs, providing complete environmental remediation plus transport and transfer of hazardous waste materials to approved disposal facilities.

Environmental Recovery was seeking a complete gauging solution for a dozen vertical tanks at their facility containing various waste and contaminant solutions. These are used as part of the process to dewater and purify waste streams primarily through removal of solvents and oils. Our local distributor, KSE Corporation (King of Prussia, PA) recommended the KING-GAGE LP3 system for their application.

Downpipe (bubbler) sensors using the 738 LiquiSeal Purge Control were chosen for the primary transmitters as they do not require tank access for service and were a less expensive solution than other choices. All the tank capacity data were scaled from drawings supplied by the tank manufacturer. This system was largely installed by the customer with KSE supplying labor to commission the system and verify calibrations.

During start up, KSE discovered that downpipes were longer than installation notes indicated. They rectified this by measuring the actual reserve dimensions and updating the LP3 system with new iButton datapacks and a flash card reprogrammed by King. KSE also provided on site training on LP3 operation for the customer's personnel as well as preventative maintenance procedures. Environmental Recovery was very satisfied with the installation and now plans to expand the system by adding an additional (4) tanks this year.

Lancaster Oil Company, now doing business as Environmental Recovery Corporation of PA (, was started in 1988 as a waste water and waste oil treatment facility. The company provides tracking and records maintenance of its clients' waste streams according to EPA/DEP mandates from "cradle to grave".
