Since 1976, GLOBAL Energy has been exposed to cold weather operability of petroleum.
Established in Minnesota, Global Energy began working with owner-operators. Conversations took place between companies and fuel consumers on how temperature was leading to equipment failure which could pose a life-threatening situation.
Those conversations became a reality the winter of 1976 when an owner operator’s semi-truck fuel gelled and left the man with permanent physical damage due to frostbite and hypothermia. Experiences like these brought Global Energy where it is today.
In January 2007 CLEAN FIRE was introduced to the public and the trucking industry by Travis H. Eggerichs, Sr. The product continues to be manufactured for a wide range of diesel engines and applications, on and off-road.
Travis Eggerichs Sr. is involved in reviewing new mandated fuels in regards to the United States, as well as with the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Weights and Measures.
The primary goal of GLOBAL ENERGY RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INC., the parent of CLEAN FIRE, is to be proactive in knowing the requirements of Future fuels and understanding federal requirements of the United States Regulation of Emissions.
Winter of 1976
Fred Eggerichs (Husband and father of 3 boys) was stranded in South Dakota from fuel failure. Due to crystallization/waxing from the -20 degree weather. Changing the fuel filter he managed to spill fuel on his hands leaving him with permanent physical damage, frostbite, and hypothermia. Fred's hands were wrapped in bandages for 6 months. In those 6 months, one of the boys grew interested in the petroleum Industry.
During the mid-'80s Travis was involved with NHRA and NASCAR.
After years of testing, comparing engine wear patterns, stress oils, and fuels on nitro engines. Travis's areas of interest have been the fuel delivery system and internal chemical etchings to combustion modifications.
"There is a never-ending excitement when working with fuels."
