First Snow of 2013


Here is a photo of our first snowfall of "autumn" at EPG a couple weeks ago. The snow has since melted away but reminds us that the Holiday Season is upon us. On behalf of everyone at EPG we'd like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

EPG or Equivalent - Is it Really Equal?

  EPG NW Series vs. Not Equal  Pitless Adapter

It's no accident that a large number of landfill projects today call for "EPG or equivalent" in the specifications.


We've worked diligently for many years to establish "best practices" with research, development, experience, and innovation. We take pride in our good reputation within the industry and being recognized in this manner. 


We also caution against the notion that there is an equivalent to EPG's equipment. The quality, reliability and longevity of EPG products is proven and not only stand on their own merits, but in comparison to numerous imitators and inferior designs.


The photos to the right are a great example of an imitator failing to deliver "or equal" quality and performance. The pump discharge adapter at the top of the first photo and shown closeup in the second leaked when put into service. This occurred due to the poor welds, inferior design, and lack of testing. Did this customer get what they paid for? What do you think? The second adapter is part of EPG's NW Series and performs as advertised. 


EPG understands that our customer's ultimate goal is to get maximum value without compromising performance. This is a philosophy we believe in as well, and it drives us to provide the best equipment and service in the industry.

Odor Control & Fugitive Gas Solutions 

Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares are widely used for odor and emission control at passive outlets, such as cap vents, leachate stations, or from gas outbreaks at the surface of active or closed landfill cells. Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares are typically used on landfill gas vents, wells, or leachate system cleanout lines to combust flammable gases.

Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares combust flammable gases at low ambient pressure without the need for blowers or external power.

LTL Biogas Flares are widely used for odor and emission control when vacuum assist is required, such as cap vents, leachate stations, or from gas outbreaks at the surface of active or closed landfill cells.

These units are ruggedly constructed for long life and feature solar-powered continuous ignition with very low maintenance requirements. Skid and trailer mounting options are available to adapt to any situation.
