(Dallas, TX. – October 7, 2011) StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Kelso Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: KLS)(OTCQX: KEOSF). The Company closed on October 6, 2011, at $0.564, trading in a fifty-two week range of $0.7386 – 0.1524.
Kelso reported yesterday that its wholly owned subsidiary Kelso Technologies (USA) Inc. has received a key project order for our AAR-approved 75PSI constant force spring pressure relief valve and a new 165PSI constant force spring pressure relief valve from one of the largest petroleum companies in the world. The project order is for a retrofit program for existing tank cars. The order is valued at approximately US$275,000 and is scheduled to be delivered over the next 15 months with shipments beginning immediately from their Bonham, Texas facility. This marks the initial implementation of the client’s adoption strategies for Kelso’s innovative products.
Kelso is currently marketing its external constant force pressure relief valves (“valves”) and the new Kelso Klincher™ (“KKS”) manway securement system (available in January 2012) to companies involved in the transport of hazardous materials such as asphalt, ethanol, propane, crude oil, oil shale, oil sand, sulfur, and liquid fertilizers. Discussions on specific engineering design criteria, testing requirements, retrofit strategies, production schedules and adoption strategies are ongoing with many customers at this time. This is a complex and time consuming process but an essential prerequisite to customers’ future adoption plans.
Due diligence reviews by prospective customers are confirming that the numerous benefits offered by Kelso’s products are attainable and sustainable in terms of regulatory compliance, environmental sensitivities, worker safety, reliability, longevity, efficiency and economic rewards.
This key purchase order is considered to be a milestone and confirmation that the Company’s marketing initiatives are making progress in the well-established and very conservative railroad industry. The Company will provide updates on sales growth in future news releases.
About Kelso Technologies
Kelso supplies innovative technologies aimed at the safe containment of hazardous materials during transport. Our primary goal is to have our technologies improve the safety industry workers and the environment while providing substantial returns on investment to our customers and investors worldwide.
The Company designs, engineers, markets, sells, produces and distributes a series of industrial products based on patented technologies including external constant force pressure relief valves and a new unique manway product. Both are designed to reduce the risk of environmental harm due to non-accidental events in the transportation of hazardous commodities in North America.
Kelso is focused on the full scale commercial business development of its proprietary technologies. With the eventual economic recovery in North America, the enforcement of more stringent United States and Canadian environmental regulations and the adverse effects of wear and tear on existing railroad fleets management expect that the railroad industry will rebound significantly. Management is confident that it can pursue a meaningful and profitable revenue stream from a market made up of new tank-car builders, major chemical shippers, repair shops and retrofitters. The Company will update, by way of news releases, progress reports in the future.
