Hi folks- we have been on the streets of Houston quiet a bit this past couple of weeks, talking Diesel Exhaust Fluid, right here in our back yard.
What we have found is the continuous confusion about dispensing from closed loop systems. Now, our job here is to help you and our distributor network understand these options; so we felt it was important to reharsh this concept once again.
Our previous post dealt with what you have available as far as distribution channels. One way IBC totes, returnable/refillable, on site refilling, at a glance.
Why don’t we dig in a little deeper on the handling and dispensing of Diesel Exhaust Fluid with a closed loop systems.
What is a DEF closed loop system? Micromatic is the system that we use, it is now company policy that only closed loop systems are being sold with either drums or IBC totes. The pictures below will illustrate the diesel exhaust fluid closed loop system.
Ok, now what we have a better picture of what that system is. The following question came up: What do I need to make this system work for me on one way totes and refilling totes on site?
So, let’s take the first half of the question on one way DEF IBC Totes.
Say you are ready to serve one of your customer with an order of 330 gallons of Diesel Exhaust Fluid in an IBC Tote package. How are you going to create a closed loop system when that tote will eventually be swapped out for a new one?
Starting from the top and working down into the IBC tote, here is what you need: 1) SS coupler, 2) container valve (economical) 3)down tube (275 gal or 330 gal).
From the SS coupler, you will need to clamp your EPDM hose for your pump. We have these Micromatic parts in stock here in Houston, as well as the diesel exhaust fluid pump dispensers. Call us for more details at 281-377-5845 or email us for equipment information.
1 – Part #756-008B
2- Part# 755-003
3- Part#755-641/1245 g
When the DEF fluid is all used up, you can reuse the coupler on the new IBC coming in already filled with DEF.
The second part of the question deals with servicing your customers by providing on location re-filling. In other words, reuse the same tote by refilling on site. We will discuss this in detail on the next blog entry.
