Hernon Manufacturing’s Pipe Sealant Approved by TerraCair for DEF Equipment Suppliers List

Dripstop® 940, a containment-free anaerobically curing pipe sealant, has been added to TerraCairs’ list of approved DEF Equipment Suppliers who are compliant for use with DEF 

Sanford, FL., November 26, 2012 –Hernon Manufacturing, the innovator in adhesives, sealants and dispensing equipment, was recently awarded an approval for its Dripstop® 940 anaerobically curing pipe sealant from TerraCair, one of the largest manufacturers of DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) and urea in the United States. DEF is used with the catalytic converters for diesel engines made since 2010.

TerraCair publishes and distributes a DEF Equipment Suppliers list of approved companies who they have found to be contaminant- free and compliant with proper usage of DEF. Hernon Manufacturing’s Dripstop® 940, has been approved as a suitable pipe sealant for DEF technology and is now included on the list.

“As a result of a meeting with TerraCair representatives at the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) show last month, Hernon Manufacturing was given the proper direction and contacts to pursue the listing,” said Bob Sollien, Northeast Sales Representative for Hernon Manufacturing.

Dripstop® 940 also received the necessary approvals and exhibited 100% passing results from Intertek, which conducts thousands of automotive fuel and lubricant analytical tests each month. This testing confirmed that Dripstop® 940 was containment free to ISO-22241 standards and therefore compatible for DEF technology.

Dripstop® 940 can be used in the manufacturing of petroleum dispensing parts and equipment and during the installation of diesel and DEF dispensing systems. Dripstop® 940 has superior sealing, and has been specially formulated to be used with stainless steel pipe fittings and mild locking performance compared to tapes and non-hardening dopes.

Dripstop® 940 reduces costs by eliminating leakage and increasing the assembly line speed. It also eliminates waste in that there is no dripping or running. Additionally, because it is solvent free, it won't crack or shrink due to solvent evaporation.

Typical applications for Dripstop® 940 are: DEF bulk transfer stainless steel pipe fittings, fuel line fittings, plated flare fittings, pulp and paper mills, refinery piping, instrumentation fittings, waste treatment plants, textile equipment, piping for chlorine and caustic sodas, hydraulic line fittings, pneumatic line fittings, fluid connections, steam lines up to 250 psig and pipe plugs.

“We are pleased to be added to TerraCair’s DEF Equipment Suppliers list and to receive the national recognition as being a highly respected DEF manufacturer,” added Sollien.
