SpillX was developed by MPL Innovations who worked closely with the Advanced Manufacturing Institute at Kansas State University and Meggitt, a leader in aviation fueling products, to develop this patent pending locomotive fueling system.

MPL has served the rail industry for over 20 years with it's line of SolidStick™ solid polymer wheel flange lubricants and other solid lubricants.  MPL works closely with its customers to understand problems impacting the industry and address those problems through research and development and advanced engineering of new products.  SpillX is a direct result of this research and development.  The 2000 AAR recommended practice for fueling highlighed the need for an improved fueling system comprised of dry break connections, more reliable shut-offs, and increased fueling rates.

As a result, MPL spent over 5 years working with a diverse group of its customers to understand the needs and design a fueling system that was able to strike a balance between increased fueling rates and safety and a cost effective simple to install product.  The result is the SpillX locomotive fueling system.
