Opportunities and Solutions
A customer needed a few drums of fuel shipped to their sister company in Asia.
They soon were faced with the many complexities of shipping a fuel overseas.
They realized they needed assistance with the logistics and contacted Haltermann for help.
Haltermann Solutions™, having expertise with door-to-door shipments to anywhere on the globe,
coordinated shipping for our customer which, incidentally, wasn't even a Haltermann Solutions™ product.
A customer found that a key
specification parameter of a fuel
stored at their site had fallen
below desired levels. They were
hoping that the fuel could be
adjusted somehow in their tanks
and asked if Haltermann Solutions™ could
Instead of having to replace the fuel, Haltermann Solutions™ analyzed the
fuel and determined what was needed. Haltermann Solutions™ then
developed an additive package that the customer added to
their existing fuel to bring it in to back into desired levels and
within all aspects of the specification.
Through routine discussions with
one of our customers, we
determined that they were
experiencing a great deal of
inefficiency in unloading bulk
transports of fuel. This appeared
to cost them unnecessary time
and money. Haltermann Solutions™ offered
A Haltermann Solutions™ transportation representative visited the
customer site and provided recommendations for
modifications to the unloading station which included
containment measures which simplified the unloading process
and resulted in improved customer efficiencies and safety.
A customer received fuel in an
isotainer as a result of being
imported. The customer was
unfamiliar with unloading from this
type of transport container and
asked Haltermann Solutions™ for assistance.
A Haltermann Solutions™ transportation representative visited the
customer site and provided technical assistance and the
necessary hardware/fittings required for safe completion of
the fuel unloading process.
A customer had somehow
contaminated fuel in one of their
storage tanks. They were
observing erratic readings of one
of the key functional components
in the fuel. They realized the fuel
needed to be replaced.
Haltermann Solutions™ offered assistance.
At the customer's request, Haltermann Solutions™ coordinated the
contaminated fuel removal, tank flushing and replacement of
the contaminated fuel with fresh in-spec fuel.
A customer had utilized a variety
of fuels over the course of a
testing program. Having put so
many differing fuels in their tanks,
they were unsure of the quality of
fuel they had remaining.
The customer supplied Haltermann Solutions™ with samples from several
of their tanks. Haltermann Solutions™ then completed a detailed
analytical analysis of the fuels and reported the results to the
customer so they could determine the usability of the fuel in
North American specialty fuel
customers had to routinely import
Euro Stage IV and Euro Stage V
diesel fuels from Europe for their
certification testing. Available
domestic feed stocks did not allow
the manufacturing of this fuel
locally. The freight cost was
prohibitive but had to be paid by
Haltermann Solutions™ executed an exhaustive search of North American
suppliers for key blend stocks needed to make these
products. Haltermann Solutions™ success now allows us to
manufacture Euro Stage IV and V certification diesel fuels in
North America which saves customers the prohibitive cost of
freight they have historically incurred by importing these
Our customers on the West Coast
were incurring high freight costs
and long lead-times when
ordering small quantities of
Haltermann Solutions™ fuels. Shipping one or
two drums of fuel from Michigan to
the West Coast is relatively
To improve cost and service to our West Coast customers,
Haltermann Solutions™ established a distributor in California that ships
truck load quantities of drummed Haltermann Solutions™ fuels to their
warehouse and passes the freight savings along to our
customers. Further, West Coast customers now experience
much shorter lead times, as the distributor accommodates
next day delivery for the fuels they maintain in inventory.
A customer wanted to test one of
their off-shore market vehicles
with Brazilian cane ethanol
instead of U.S. corn ethanol to
make sure the vehicles were
being calibrated with materials
that would be available in that
Haltermann Solutions™ was able to supply our customer with Brazilian
ethanol needed for their testing program. Haltermann Solutions™
understands the complex tax laws in order to facilitate this
transaction and provide the fuel the customer needs.
A customer had an aviation
application in the Middle East and
was attempting to secure a turbine
fuel having high sulfur / low
lubricity. This fuel quality was
needed so that local testing would
model the fuel that would be
available locally in the Middle
Haltermann Solutions™ was able to develop a formulation that met the
challenging fuel specifications provided by the customer. The
product was able to be manufactured and meet an aggressive
timeline required by the customer.
A customer was in need of 31
different fuels for an ethanol
study. Exact specifications were
not available but the customer
knew generally what was
required. This required a complex
iterative process with the
customer requiring weekly
Haltermann Solutions™ moved from a standard price quote approach to
offering the customer a collaborative R&D approach.
Subsequently, all of the fuels were developed and
manufactured using a time and materials basis which allowed us to account for the exact time
needed by Haltermann Solutions™ specialists to make the fuels. The fuels
were delivered on-time and to the customer's satisfaction.
Only actual R&D costs incurred were charged to the
Our customers are in need of an
intake valve deposit fuel (IVD) for
industry-wide testing. They have
asked if Haltermann Solutions™ can develop
a fuel or an additive that would
result in a new IVD fuel.
Haltermann Solutions™ scientists developed a fuel additive that has
shown to be effective in the development of deposits on the
laboratory bench scale as verified by an independent testing
lab. Haltermann Solutions™ can incorporate this additive to the
customers' choice of fuel.
The hydrocarbon-based Rocket
Propellant community requested a
study on possible various routes
to produce RP-1 and RP-2 rocket
propellants. They wanted to
determine whether different routes
offered differences in propellant
Haltermann Solutions™ prepared hydrocarbon-based
samples using ten unique blends to meet RP-1 specs. Analyses were presented to the Rocket Fuel community at the
JANNAF meeting. This approach allows contingencies for
supply of RP-1 in the event of disruptions in supply of
individual blend stocks. The samples allow the
Rocket Fuel community to evaluate performance differences
in fuels made to RP-1 specification with differing
components and functional groups.
There is an industry-wide
mandate for the use of natural
occurring constituents (especially
sulfur) when blending certification
and reference fuels. This is a
challenge to manufacturers of
specialty fuels as available feed
streams are trending to steadily
lower amounts of these materials.
In response to this challenge, Haltermann Solutions™ secured sources of
raw materials streams able to satisfy the industry
requirements to provide natural occurring constituents.
Haltermann Solutions™ provides key process design in order to refine
these streams to meet industry needs.
Our customers often have needs
for "site-specific" unloading
activities and unique volume
requirements for one-time/specific
projects. Fuel volumes needed for
these tests also vary widely.
On an ongoing basis, Haltermann Solutions™ personnel supply technical
support and hardware enabling customers to move forward
with fuel projects. Unique fittings and off-loading technology is
routinely provided to customers in support of their projects.
Further, Haltermann Solutions™ provides necessary flexibility in logistics
to enable the customer to complete required test programs.
