EMI's facility, located in Kansas City, Kansas, was specifically designed to meet not only the environmental liability trail of spent/used transformer oil, but to meet federal and state standards regardless of volume. The facility consists of a 5,700 square foot office/shop building, 3,600 square foot dechlorination building, and an 18 tank, 300,000+ gallon concrete total containment dike area. On and off-loading concrete containment driveways adjoin the tank farm and treatment buildings.
Our facility accepts any quality of transformer oil below 50 ppm PCB. The waste streams are segregated within the facility and handled according to all Federal and State regulations.
EMI's transformer oil services combine a professional, quality control oriented staff with a state of the art facility to provide our clients with peace of mind concerning the handling of their used transformer oil. Whether the oil contains less than 2 ppm PCB or 49 ppm PCB, our facility and trained personnel will provide your company with the highest level of confidence that your environmental liability trail ends by utilizing EMI for transformer oil services.
All transformer oil brought into our facility is kept segregated by each transport load. Appropriate analysis reflecting silicone and PCB content, either provided by your firm or our independent laboratory will enable our personnel to correctly identify which segment of our facility will receive the oil. If the oil meets certain criteria it is run through our vacuum dehydrator and then filtered through our exclusive particulate filtration system before heading through our proprietary hydro-treatment system. Hydro-treating the oil removes contaminants and brings it back to virgin quality base oil. This oil is then stored in one of our 50,000 gallon finished oil tanks for shipment. Certain contaminants within transformer oil may prevent it from being hydro-treated. Those oils are treated in our dechlorination facility.
This facility consists of EPA and Kansas Department of Health & Environment permitted/approved equipment and technology for the effective destruction of PCBs in mineral oil using a Sodium metal reaction with the PCBs. This dechlorination facilty is kept totally separate from the rest of our operations and is located within a totally enclosed concrete dike containment building. All of the equipment and technology is state of the art and processes a finished product which effectively ends any liability trail associated with PCB's.
EMI operates its own transportation services with trucks that are specifically designed for handling one product, used transformer oil. EMI would be happy to schedule the regular pick-up of your oil, or a one-time short notice load. We pride ourselves with on-time service and will make every effort to assure you that your used oil situation will never be a problem.
Whether you are disposing of waste oil or buying base oil, EMI has the transportation capabilities you need.
EMI operates a fleet of transport trucks for the transportation needs of picking oil up or delivering oil to your facility. The power units are lease/contract operated, and the trailers are owned by EMI. We maintain the same power units and drivers throughout the year, In fact, most of the drivers have been exclusively with EMI for over 8 years. The drivers are trained and experienced in the draining of not only storage tanks, but field transformer units and substations themselves. The trailers are all equipped with the multitude of fittings necessary to complete any job and 125 feet of hose. Each unit has a specially designed pumping system for the handling of transformer oil. They are unique to the industry, and the most environmentally sound pumping system on any transport truck.
EMI lease operates railcar transportation for bulk pick-up and deliveries of oil. EMI has contracts with numerous rail carriers to facilitate movement of its railcars to any region of the United States. Our railcars range from 21,000 to 26,000 gallons, and can be loaded and unloaded from our spurs in Kansas City or the East Coast.
