A little bit about my family:

I have a small but very close family. I just got married to my beautiful wife, Stephanie, on June 18, 2011. I look forward to having kids someday.

Did you know?

I used to play bass guitar, and I USED to be pretty good at it.

Green Bay Packers Quarterbacks -Training Camp-

Aaron Rodgers looks sharp, despite the lack of practice time this year.  He has to be considered among the leagues elite quarterbacks.  He is in the Drew Brees category, just above guys like Phillip Rivers and Matt Ryan, and just below guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.  The factor that really boosts him up is his age.  He is younger than Manning and Brady, thus if I was choosing a dream QB to lead my team I would choose Rodgers over anybody right now.

Matt Flynn is in the final year of his contract, and I suspect he will be somewhere else next year.  He has starting quarterback written all over him, someone will pay him starters money, and there is no way the Packers will be able to afford him as a back up.  Some have suggested trading him first, but after Rodgers suffered two concussions last season I would lean toward keeping him around as security against the possibility that Rodgers may miss some time again this season.

Graham Harrell is your typical third stringer.  He shows promise and is an excellent QB.  His physical limitations may preclude him from ever being an elite prospect, but he is a damn good football player with an excellent college resume.

I have only two concerns with this years crop of QB’s.  The first is Rodgers concussion history.  My concern there is more for him than the team.  The team can survive him missing a game or two, I just hope the problem does not linger and threaten the young man’s long term health.  The second is the lack of a developmental QB on the roster.  With Flynn set to leave this year, I would like see a QB on the practice squad.

Amy’s Baby Girl, Ali

A wonderful new addition to the Krueger Sentry Gauge Family.

Barrel Gauge – Now Available in All Stainless Steel Construction

The Liquid Level Barrel Gauge is now available in

All Stainless Steel Construction.

The Type B-Barrel Gauge can be purchased with all stainless steel wetted components. This includes the bushing, the wetted rods, and the floats.

In order to increase the level gauge’s compatibility with more aggressive liquids (including Caustics, DEF, E85, and more…) this gauge also comes standard with viton gaskets.  The internal piece of the calibration is made of glass.  This alternative gives the plastic calibration added resistance to internal fumes and all types of heat.

    Overfill Gauge Alarms – New Options Available.

    New models available for the Krueger Audible Overfill Prevention Alarms

    The Audible Alarm accessory for the Krueger Gauge line of products has become a hot selling item.  Able to provide audible overfill protection or audible low level warnings, it is a convenient and inexpensive solution.  In response to feedback, we are now offering the Overfill Gauge Alarm in several new configurations.  All of the configurations are available in both our remote mounted versions and direct mounted versions.

    • DAlarm-FL and RAlarm-FL : With this model, the audible fill alarm is replaced with a flashing light.  The flashing light will trigger with the magnetic sensor in the fill gauge and continues to flash until reset.
    • Dalarm-FL-TO & RAlarm-FL-TO : With this model, there is an audible alarm, a flashing light, and a time out feature.  When triggered, the alarm will sound for 20 seconds, then it will silence itself and chirp every few seconds.  The flashing light will go until reset.
    • DAlarm-DC-FL & RAlarm-DC-FL : This gauge alarm replaces the audible alarm with a set of dry contacts and a flashing light.  The light will flash until reset.
    • DAlarm-DC-FL-TO & RAlarm-DC-FL-TO : This version has dry contacts, audible alarm, flashing light, and a time out feature.  The alarm itself will shut off after 20 seconds and begin to chirp until reset.  The flashing light will go until reset as well.

    Remote Liquid Level Gauge Monitor- Extreme Tests

    LED At A Glance Remote Monitor – Liquid Level

    The LED At A Glance, a remote display accessory for the Krueger line of liquid level gauges, has been put through some rigorous weather tests and has passed with flying colors.

    Early in the winter season, we set up some liquid level gauges outside the shop mounted to some 55 gallon drums.  The wires for the remote level monitors were then run over to the wall and the LED At A Glance remote level gauge displays were then set up in exposed areas.

    LED At A Glance Remote Monitor – Liquid Level

    Luckily, (for our testing purposes anyway), we got hit with a major snow storm. (18 inches of snow, 20 below zero with windchill).

    Pictured above (the first picture) you can see the exposed remote display wire encased in ice.

    Pictured directly above, you can see how the remote liquid level monitor itself was totally buried in snow and then dug out.

    Although we do suggest placing a hood or some other sort protection over the level monitor, in all testing cases the remote liquid level monitor still worked great after the storm went through.

    Amy is a newly wed.

    Amy Filipiak has tied the knot.  She officially got hooked on October 9th, 2009.  The lucky guy is Adam Ambrosius.  So today I would like to officially say congratulations to Amy and Adam Ambrosius.  Otherwise known as Triple A.

    Only Amy would attempt to plan a wedding, go to college full time, and work almost full time all at the same time.  I have a hard time walking and chewing gum at the same time, I guess that is why she is so indispensable to me.  Thank you for all of your hard work Amy, and congratulations on your wedding day.

    Chemical Sight Gauge for more aggressive liquids

    Standard Krueger sight gauges are best known in the petroleum equipment industry for providing inexpensive yet reliable liquid level fill gauges for all types of tanks.  Yet with the growing amount of alternative fuels including bio diesel and E-85, we found it advantageous to create sight gauge packages that include all stainless steel or all plastic components.  This created an excellent side effect.

    Our sight gauges can now handle extremely aggressive chemicals including Sulfuric Acid and Hydrochloric Acid.  Some chemical sight gauge examples include:

      All stainless steel chemical fill gauge construction – E-85, Bio Diesel, Peroxide, Nitric Acid, Caustics, Calcium Chloride, KOH, and more.
    • All plastic chemical sight gauge construction – Peek Plastic Option – Phosphoric Acid, Hydrochloric Acid, Bleach, and more.
    • All plastic chemical fill gauge construction – Kynar Plastic Option – Chlorine, Sulfuric Acid, and more.

    Visit the Krueger Gauge website for more Fill Gauge options.
