    Hytek On Track To Raise Money For Worthy Cause

    We are taking part in the Revolve24 cycle challenge over the weekend of September 16th & 17th at the world famous Brands Hatch race circuit to raise money for St Clare Hospice, a local charity specialising in end of life care.


    Along with fellow Flowmax group company members IFC Inflow, Anglo Nordic & MechTronic, we are entering three mixed teams in the Revolve24 endurance event. The Flowmax group colleagues will cycle around the 3.9km track from midday on the 16th for a grueling 24 hours, through to midday the following day.


    The teams have arranged sponsorship on their jerseys from suppliers & would like to thank everyone for their kind donations, which will go directly to the charity.


    St Clare Hospice, based in Hastingwood just 20 minutes down the M11 from Hytek’s headquarters, provides care to those affected by life limiting illnesses & has a special link with the company. Hytek lost a much respected & popular colleague in 2013, when Peter Parker, succumbed to cancer having been part of the Hytek team for some 14 years.


    Peter & his family were looked after in his final days by the hospice so Hytek, with help from other group colleagues, continue to support this worthy cause.


    Clive Wellings, Hytek’s Research & Development manager, said: “St Clare Hospice helped our late colleague & friend Peter & his family immensely, so we’re delighted to contribute & help them continue their valuable work.”


    The teams are putting in the hard hours of training in readiness for the big weekend. If you would like to support them & help raise funds for their worthy cause, please use this link.

  • Hytek ALPHA Diesel Pump ATEX Certified

    Hytek ALPHA Diesel Pump ATEX Certified

    Hytek's Alpha diesel pumps have undergone a redesign to comply with the ATEX Directive.


    Hytek's quality & operational systems also had to be assessed & audited by the notified body to ensure that the company's manufacturing processes were carried out in accordance with the ATEX certification.


    During this process, Hytek's Quality System, accredited to ISO 9001, proved to be instrumental in the eventual successful completion of this stringent assessment process, at which point the pump EX Certificate was issued, as well as a Quality Assurance Notification, which gave Hytek the authority to manufacture & supply the ATEX Certified products.


    Hytek's ALPHA with integrated FC10 has also been ATEX Certified to dispense diesel.


  • Hytek Expand Test Measure/Proving Can Range

    Hytek Expand Test Measure/Proving Can Range

    Hytek have added 5 & 10 litre capacity models to join their existing 20 litre test measure can. The newcomers to the range are made to the same high standards that make the existing 20 litre model a durable & reliable choice.


    Like their bigger 20 litre brother, the new 5 & 10 litre models are made of tough & durable 304 stainless steel & can be used with various fuels such as diesel, biodiesel, petrol, kerosene & AdBlue®.


    Each model is available with a UK weights & measures certificate option to verify their accuracy to test fuel dispensing equipment to the accepted levels.


    Hytek’s Sales Director Andy Seal commented: “We’re very committed to listening & responding to our customers; there was a strong interest in smaller measuring can options hence the additions to the range.”


    With a scale in millilitres, the test measuring cans are designed to be easy to use; they all feature separate lifting & emptying handles, & include a clear & easy to read gauge.

    Hytek Released New Fuel & Lubrication Equipment Catalogue

    Hytek have released a new product catalogue featuring their latest product releases along with additions & revisions to existing ranges.

    Additions to Hyteks' existing ATEX products include the Hytek ALPHA & ALPHA Twin diesel pump range, & the ALPHA FC10 pump with integrated fuel management system, together with their tank alarm range.

  • Liquefied Natural Gas Station For Trucks Is A Germany First

    German energy firm Uniper & the Italian truck manufacturer Iveco have launched Germany’s first liquefied natural gas station (LNG) in Ulm.


    Iveco & Uniper will be positioned to advance the use of Liquefied Natural Gas in heavy-duty & long-haul transport. Uniper sells LNG fuel via the LIQVIS brand, whilst Iveco has developed the “Stralis LNG”, making them the first manufacturer able to offer a vehicle in Europe, capable of using LNG in heavy-duty & long-haul transport.


    Eckhardt Rümmler, Unipers’ Chief Operating Officer was quoted, “the construction of this fuelling station in Germany, represent a first, important step, in the development of innovative, environmentally friendly fuelling alternatives in long-haul transportation. Working in further partnerships, we want to build a fit-for-purpose network of LNG fuelling stations in Germany and selected neighbouring countries in the next few years. We are thus making an important contribution toward improving environmental performance and noise reduction in road transportation."

  • CO2 Monitoring Added To Fuel Management Systems

    CO2 Monitoring Added To Fuel Management Systems

     

    We now offer a CO2 emissions monitoring facility for our fuel management systems. It’s designed to help the transport industry respond effectively to increased government demands for achieving set emissions targets & provide accurate reporting of the amounts of CO2 produced by their vehicles.


    CO2 output readings have been added to the report structure of our web based FC10 & FC20 systems.


    The software is programmed to make a basic calculation based on a set amount of CO2 in one litre of diesel to show the CO2 emission in an extra two columns of the easy to read report - along with other data such as miles per gallon, distance covered & more. The CO2 emissions are shown in both CO2 KG & CO2g per km for each vehicle.


    Scott McClean in Technical Support commented: “This extra facility added to the already comprehensive fuel management functions is in response to customer demand.”


    Along with emissions targets, transport companies have to ensure their vehicles are ‘clean’ enough to enter low emissions zones enforced in larger built up areas such as London.


    “Customers told us they wanted quick & easy ways to provide the information demanded now by the government, & this reporting does that for them,” added Scott.


  • Hytek Wins Award For Work On Shell Project

    Hytek Wins Award For Work On Shell Project

    A collaborative project on behalf of global oil giants Shell has seen Hytek win an award from its co-collaborator Franklin Fueling Systems for outstanding project management.

     

    Hytek have been recognised as part of Franklin Fueling Systems global awards scheme, & their award covers a wide territory encompassing not just the UK but also Ireland, Scandinavia & the Baltics. Franklin Fueling Systems manager for these territories, Alex Boudry, presented Hytek with their award.

     

    Hytek’s Senior Technical Sales Advisor, Chris Barton, was delighted with the award: “It’s particularly pleasing to be officially recognised for work centring around a major brand like Shell."

     

    Franklin Fueling Systems produce UPP, a complete leak tight underground pipe & containment system made from high density polyethylene. Its longevity, toughness & flexibility has helped them secure a five year agreement with Shell to supply containment systems & forecourt hardware.

     

    One of the key reasons for Hytek being given this award was their ability to deliver reliably on commitments made for equipment supply. This was achieved by maintaining & monitoring daily stock levels; a feat helped by the company’s experience in project management & their modern 20,000 square feet Elsenham headquarters where they’re able to keep some 6,000 products in stock at all times.

     

    Sales Director, Andy Seal, commented: “It helps enormously that the whole company is housed under one roof rather than different departments having to liaise with people in different locations. It means we can communicate efficiently to meet the customer’s requirements and deliver on our promises.”
