As a business owner it is painful when your customers say “I didn’t know you did that”.  During this great recessions our business has scaled back and although each year seems to get a little better we are nowhere near the production we had in 2007 and 2008.  So when some of your best and longest customers aren’t aware of products or services we offer it is extremely frustrating on the road of fiscal recovery.  I guess this is painful because it shows that our message is getting lost in the product offering we make to certain customers.

One such customer has had us hydrostatically pressure test valves for them for years.  They have been in our fabrication facility hundreds of times and they had no idea that we could weld and fabricate stainless steel piping.  This happens to be one of our many specialities as many other fabrication shops subcontract with us to provide stainless steel piping runs.  Our quality and value is higher and better than other shops can do in house.  Another customer had no idea we could build all types of pressure vessels and heat exchangers.  They had only ordered inlet separators from us thus, that’s all they thought we made.  Yet, we build refrigeration packages, cabin heaters, gas processing plants, distillation towers, chillers, filters, and just about anything else that has a midstream application.  In addition we build specialized skid mounted packages for prototyping and product development.

Precision Pipe is learning that we just because we offer many products it doesn’t mean that anyone knows about them.  Thus, we have started a new campaign of a quarterly news letter highlighting products we have built in the previous months.  Likewise we are supplementing our webpage with a link to our line card.  This will allow every email, quote, inquiry to have a direct link to our products and services.  We are hopeful we never hear “I didn’t know you did that” ever again.

Denver, CO – July 19, 2011 – We are thrilled to announce today the introduction of our groundbreaking liquid carbon dioxide based fabric and textile cleaning machine. CO2Nexus is a Denver, CO-based company dedicated to developing equipment and consumables that use liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) to clean fabrics and textiles. We are a spin-out of the premier worldwide CO2 R&D entity – FeyeCon Development & Implementation B.V. We are also pleased to announce our partnership with Denver-based Revolution Cleaners, who will field the first dry cleaning unit at their Denver plant.
Liquid CO2 – the same substance that puts the fizz in every carbonated beverage – has excellent solvent properties and is intrinsically sustainable, since it is in-exhaustible, cheap, non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable, and cannot spill into the soil or groundwater. Chemical based solvents currently used in the dry cleaning industry are being phased out and/or have health and liability risks. Water based laundering methods are taxing already severely depleted water resources, especially in the Western U.S.
The CO2 used in the CO2Nexus systems is recycled from existing industrial processes and as such is completely carbon neutral.
CO2Nexus will also field a system later this year targeting the industrial laundry market, in partnership with one of the largest U.S. based service providers in that market. Industrial laundry uses water as the primary cleaning solvent.
Richard Kinsman, CEO of CO2Nexus comments: “Chemical and water based dry cleaning and laundering methods have real consumer marketing and environmental-health liabilities that will only get worse. At the same time, the performance, operating costs, sustainability and consumer marketing benefits of CO2 are attractive and will continue to get better, which is why we believe it to be the best long term option. Our association with FeyeCon on the technology side, and with the primary service providers at the industry level assures us that we have both the scientific and practical basis to implement the technology.”
CO2Nexus will offer commercial units starting in Q1 of 2012.
Denver-based Precision Pipe & Vessel, LLC will serve as our manufacturing partner. Mr. Kinsman: “PPV has tremendous know-how and a real track record in gas processing equipment and components. They bring tremendous value to our organization and we are proud to be partnered with them.”
Edward Pizzarello of Revolution Cleaners confirms their involvement: “We’re excited to be able to install the first unit in our facility. Revolution Cleaners has been on the leading edge of CO2 cleaning in Denver for over 6 years. CO2 has been our only cleaning solvent, and we’re thrilled with the opportunity to move to the next generation of CO2 cleaning technology.”
State and federal agencies have established grant based incentives to encourage the adoption of CO2 based systems, beginning in CA. Other states are anticipated to follow.
