TOKHEIM QUANTIUM ALTERNATIVE FUEL DISPENSERS
Initially established as Start Italiana, an exclusive distributor of equipment produced by primary international companies for the measurement of liquid level and flow in 1993, the ProGauge brand evolved and is now considered to be one of the leading providers of automatic tank gauge solutions, including a variety of magnetostrictive tank probes (both wired and wireless), consoles, and related software to measure and monitor fuel tank levels including the increasingly popular 3D laser tank calibration service. Focusing on the fuel retail and industrial market, measuring the level and temperature ofliquids such as solvents, heavy oils etc., ProGauge products and services are now sold or distributed in 195 countries, worldwide.

NOW AND THE FUTURE
We are dedicated to offering cleaner and more environmentally friendly ways to
power vehicles. To help contribute to a greener planet, we have invested in a broad range of products and solutions that support a variety of clean fuels, including LNG, H2, LPG, CNG and electricity, alongside conventional fuel dispensers that have a lower impact on the environment.
Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons produced from natural gas and oil extraction and from oil refining. It is automatically generated during the production of methane and during the refining process itself. LPG has has lower greenhouse gas emissions than other fossil fuels when measured on a total fuel cycle.
Synthetic - or carbon neutral - fuels use carbon monoxide captured during the manufacturing process, which can be used to produce a range of traditional fuels, making the resulting replica products much more eco-friendly.
Bio fuels are fuel that are derived from natural sources, such as plants, algae or animal waste, and therefore are considered a source of renewable energy. Examples of bio fuels include ethanol and biodiesel.
Fuel additives are available for both petrol and diesel powered vehicles and offer a wide range of benefits, including reducing the amount of emissions that are produced from the burning of fossil fuels.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), a fuel based primarily on methane, is the cleanest of all fossil fuels, as when burned, it releases carbon dioxide and water vapor into the atmosphere: the same compounds we exhale when we breathe, helping to reduce the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
Electricity is considered one of the cleanest ways to power modern cars. Electric vehicles are 100% eco-friendly and do not emit any harmful emissions or fume whilst you drive, making them the go-to choice for many environmentally-conscious motorists.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a non-toxic liquid, formed when natural gas is cooled down to -160°C/-260°F. This non-flammable liquid is 600 times smaller in volume than when in its gaseous state, and therefore it is both easier and safer to handle and ship. LNG is the cleanest fossil fuel. It is an excellent alternative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help combat global warning. Combined with proper site equipment, LNG can be boiled off in order to produce and deliver CNG at the same station.
Hydrogen is a zero carbon gas and the most abundant element in the universe. It can be produced via a number of methods, including solar and wind power or water electrolysis. Transport and distribution can be done via pipeline, high pressure tube trailer and liquified form. Within a fuel cell, compressed hydrogen (up to 700 bar), in contact with oxygen from the air, generates electricity for the car engine and produces only water as exhaust.
DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid)/ARLA helps convert harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) from diesel vehicle exhausts into water and nitrogen, considerably reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It is a harmless additive, which is stored in a dedicated tank on the vehicle and injected into the post-combustion exhaust stream. The solution is non-flammable and non-explosive and is classified as a transportable fluid with minimal risk.
