DEF Equipment

A commercial and industrial division of experienced companies can help with complete services and products that suit business needs. A small local delivery business may need a container and hose system that can be rolled out to trucks as fluid is required.

The Importance of the Right Exhaust Fluid

Diesel engines emit toxic gases that gasoline-powered engines do not. Traditionally, standards for emissions allowances were high enough that the problem could be remedied within the engine itself. In 2010, standards became too low for that solution to continue to be effective. A new solution had to be developed by vehicle manufacturers.

Preserving Fuel Economy

The addition of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system beyond the engine was a way to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy for diesel engines. A filter is used to trap major impurities. Another section of the system consists of diesel exhaust fluid to turn fumes to ammonia. The last step transforms the exhaust to nitrogen which leaves the vehicle as harmless water droplets.

The diesel exhaust fluid is not a fuel additive and needs to enter the vehicle via a separate tank. The purity of this fluid makes a significant difference in how much is needed. One of the purest fluids is BlueDEF made by PEAKHD. Twenty-three gallons will effectively lower emissions for up to seven-thousand miles. This is ideal for trucking and shipping fleets.

Bulk Management of Fluid

This fluid is odorless and non-toxic, so it can easily be washed from clothing, concrete, and other materials. One drawback is that exhaust fluid does have corrosive effects on some metals. Keeping the product pure requires special containers and equipment for storing, transferring, and pumping the fluid into trucks and heavy-duty diesel engine machinery. This can become a problem for fleet managers if they do have the right fluid or accessories.

A commercial and industrial division of experienced companies can help with complete services and products that suit business needs. A small local delivery business may need a container and hose system that can be rolled out to trucks as fluid is required. A large trucking business will benefit from an in-ground storage tank with a stationery pumping outlet. The variety of products and the opportunity to schedule fluid delivery at just in time intervals makes bulk management simple.

Heavy-Duty Oils

Motor oil in bulk is also available. Heavy-duty equipment and machinery often require a special weight for oil to keep the product from breaking down quickly. The right oil is essential to maintain the engines and moving parts. Assistance with selecting the right fluids for current fleets or machines is offered from professionals with knowledge backed by over forty-years of research, development, and innovation. Save time and money with products and services that keep engines performing at optimum efficiency.
