EP Minerals' Floor-Dry Oil Absorbent Cleans Up at the Racetrack

EP Minerals' Global Technical Services Director Larry Galberd and his team use EP Minerals' Floor-Dry Oil Absorbent to clean up fuel spills at the racetrack

It's time to check in on our resident racecar driver, Larry Galberd! EP Minerals' Floor-Dry, the #1 oil absorbent and spill clean up for the racetrack, is one of Larry's sponsors. 

If you'll recall from a previous blog post, EP Minerals’ Global Technical Services Director Larry Galberd leads a double life. By day, Larry could be anywhere in the world helping our diatomaceous earth or perlite filtration customers optimize their filtration processes and solve problems. By night and on weekends (and any other chance he gets) Larry is driving hell bent for leather at 140 mph for his Blew-By-You race car team in the ChumpCar Racing Series. Larry and his team are “sponsored” (I use that term loosely) by EP Minerals’ Floor-Dry absorbent, the #1 automobile oil spill cleanup product that can be found at all the major auto supply stores today.

Go Larry! And keep promoting Floor-Dry, the #1 oil absorbent at the racetrack!

Thanks to Emily Bell and VinePair for the tequila information.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! So you know that our diatomaceous earth filter aid filters the world's best beers, wines, whiskeys, brandys, sakes and a host of other alcoholic beverages, right? What about the world's largest producer of tequila? Yep, bingo. DE filters tequila, too. It's a great week to celebrate this made-in-Mexico drink, and learn a little about diatomaceous earth filtration and tequila.

How do you make the best beer? Is the ingredients? The hops, the malt, the barley? The recipe? The brewer? The fermenting process? Is it in how you store it?

Diatomaceous Earth insecticide, a bad year for bugs and National Help a Horse Day

brit1.jpgHappy bug free National Help a Horse Day!

From all the reports we’re seeing lately, this is another bad year for bugs. In the West, they say we will have more bugs because it was a fairly dry winter. In the East, they say we will have more bugs because it was a longer, wetter winter. Whatever. All I know is that I’m seeing an early bunch of ants, spiders, earwigs and flies at my house, and I hate bugs.

Unfortunately, I picked a hobby that is intrinsically associated with bugs. Horses! (fyi, that would be my 25-year-old retired dressage horse Brit in the photo.) This year I’m starting my bug killer mission early with my secret weapon – diatomaceous earth insecticide (DE). The DE insecticide is made from microscopic skeletons of prehistoric algae – diatoms - that simply dry out and slice up insects like a samurai swordsman!

And Giants, and Nats, Tigers, Angels and our hometown Reno Aces. I think I’ve covered all the favorite teams here in our office.

Picture this. A hot, sunny day. A perfectly clear swimming pool. A drink with an umbrella in your hand. Does it get any better than that? Well, maybe it does.

We've known for decades that diatomaceous earth (DE) swim pool filter powder produces the clearest, sparkling clean pools. But that powdery DE has also been known for being messy and hard to handle. That can put a damper on pool care. Who wants to clean up powdery white stuff around your beautiful swimming pool? Well, we took that problem to heart, and guess what? Problem solved! Our R&D team put on their super smart innovation hats and, voila - EP Minerals now has a patent-pending LOW DUST diatomaceous earth filter powder - CelaPool!
