December 2, 2015
By Marketwired News

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS–(Marketwired – Dec. 2, 2015) – Kelso Technologies Inc. (TSX:KLS)(NYSE MKT:KIQ) (“Kelso” or the “Company”) reports that it has launched an innovative solution that will help address the challenges associated with sealing material identification. In conjunction with our previously announced Strategic Alliance with Carolina Seal Inc., seals used in Company’s pressure relief valves (PRV) will incorporate a “Compound Authentication Procedure” (CAP). The CAP is believed to be the first and only such procedure for seals in the rail industry today.

Commencing in the first quarter of 2016, all seals used with the Kelso PRV will be individually etched with the pedigree compound and tracing numbers onto the non-sealing surface of the seal. This will provide an industry unique audit trail to ensure compliance with approved shipper specifications. The goal of CAP is to optimize safety and ensure accountability as it applies to products used in OEM seals, molded parts and after-market valve repair kits. 

Carolina Seal, Inc. is a privately owned company and founding member and partner in the Ride Tight® Program with VSP Technologies. Our combined engineering goals focus on products that are of the highest quality, compliant with existing regulations and deliver reliable high performance.

James R. Bond CEO of the Company comments that: “We are dedicated to designing high quality railway equipment solutions that are both safe and regulatory compliant. Although small in numbers, there are those in the industry who use non-compliant products and compounds to gain economic advantages. This is not a good proposition for society when dealing with the dangers of transporting hazardous materials. The new CAP initiative with Carolina Seal provides a strong compliance tool for regulators to utilize. We are pleased that Kelso continues to play a role in the betterment of railway safety through the development of new technology capabilities.”
