The Top 3 must see Agriculture Industry DEF Systems

Timing is everything when it comes to agriculture. Some factors may be controlled but others such as the weather, we can only plan around. When a new product is introduced to the industry, there will be some who decide to use it and those who prefer to keep working in a traditional style. For those using any machinery that runs on diesel, diesel exhaust fluid is a necessity. Regulations on high-horsepower engines require the use of diesel exhaust fluid to reduce emission. When time is so valuable, it is imperative to buy the best DEF System for agricultural use.

The following DEF systems for agriculture use are all great. The idea is to be able to fill up the DEF tank of the different tractors and machines, which are in remote locations. It is important to notate that for an agricultural setting a tractor may use anywhere from 5 to 50 gallons of DEF per day.

All of the DEF systems for agricultural use presented bellow have been designed for rugged use in a location that does not necessarily have electricity access. When choosing the best option, remember to calculate your current and foreseen diesel exhaust fluid usage. This will determine the size of the unit which is required.

Pump Specs

The main difference between the pump of these systems is the type of pump; vane / diaphragm. Although different both types of pumps work well and are both designed to minimize noise generation.

GPM & Housing

The gallons per minute dispensed for these pumps will be too close to compare, and will likely be the same. Although I was not able to find any GPM specifications on Titan’s spec sheet, I can estimate it is a close number to the 7-9 GPMs. Housing for all three DEF system units is the same with an all poly construction.

Nozzle

The different types of configurations for nozzles are as follows: manual vs automatic, plastic vs stainless steel and with or without a meter. The top configuration you can get is an automatic stainless steel nozzle with a meter. With the basic manual nozzle, you will save some money but there can also be unwanted spills do to having to guess when the tank is full. A nozzle with automatic shut-off will save you the trouble of guessing and will stop once the tank is full. Plastic will also be less expensive but not as sturdy and durable as an all stainless steel nozzle. Noxguard’s P.O.D.S comes with a standard manual plastic nozzle, but it can be upgraded to a full stainless steel automatic nozzle with a meter for a small premium. From the information found online, I found that both Piusi and Titan use a nozzle  which is plastic with a stainless steel tip only.  Piusi’s portable basic model comes with no meter but can be upgraded to a nozzle with a meter. Titan’s unit does come with a meter and an automatic nozzle.

Hose

Dispense hose length can be an important feature for the different applications of a DEF system for agricultural use. It is important to take a look at the units that will need DEF to determine the length of the hose needed. Piusi’s comes with a 19.6 ft hose and Titan’s with a 20 ft hose , in the standard unit. The Noxguard P.O.D.S standard unit comes with a 13 ft hose, which can be upgraded to a longer hose if desired.

Tank Capacity

Similar to hose length, tank capacity needed depends on how much equipment you have and the DEF used per unit. Before deciding on which unit to purchase, calculate how many gallons of DEF your equipment uses per day/week or month. Also keep in mind how many times you would like to refill the tank. The Noxguard P.O.D.S and the Piusi Portable Tank have two sizes available, 55 and 53 gallons and 110 and 106 gallons respectively.  Titan has 4 sizes available, which provides flexibility and more options for the user.

Warranty 

If you purchase the Piusi Portable Tank or the Noxguard P.O.D.S a 2-year warranty will cover the equipment from manufacturers defects. Titan offers a 1-year warranty from the date of purchase. The limited warranty will not cover negligence, improper installation and or use.

Security 

All DEF systems come with a lockable lid, in order to secure the pump and its parts.

Noxguard Diesel Exhaust Fluid Mexico

Noxguard_DieselExhaustFluid_MexicoIf you follow us on social media or on our TransliquidTV page, you would have seen one of our posts about the new operations of Noxguard Diesel Exhaust Fluid Mexico.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Quality Assurance Program

When it comes to Diesel Exhaust Fluid not all companies are created equal. Usually you get what you pay for no matter what product or service you are dealing with. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is very strict quality wise, saving a few cents up front, could cost you thousands in repairs. Some manufacturers sell DEF in used packaging that has been washed, or even go to the extent of purchasing low grade raw materials. For this reason we created our NOXGUARD Diesel Exhaust Fluid Quality Assurance Program, to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.

What is the NOXGUARD Diesel Exhaust Fluid Quality Assurance Program?

via GIPHY

The Quality Assurance Program was established with the idea that each user of NOXGUARD DEF, can have access to our in house testing, this is our commitment to you.

The QAP consists of the following parts:

1. API CERTIFICATION

According to the API, Its Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Certification Program “is a voluntary program designed to certify and monitor the quality characteristics of diesel exhaust fluid intended of use in motor vehicles with diesel engines.” Noxguard DEF has demonstrated that it satisfies the requirements of the most recent and applicable edition of ISO 22241, by participating in this voluntary program.

You can find our API certification in the following link:  API Certificate    

2. NOXGUARD DEF Batch Track

Earlier this month we finished our DEF batch track page, an integral part of the Diesel Exhaust Fluid Quality Assurance Program (QAP). It had been a goal for us to be able to give every NOXGUARD user the ability to search for the blending date and specs of their product. Every bottle, drum , tote and bulk load that leaves the warehouse can be traced via our tracking page. We are the only DEF blender who has given complete access to in house testing results, we go above and beyond by third-party testing every single batch of DEF that leaves the warehouse.

Go ahead give it a try, we want to know what you think.

3. Certificate of Analysis ( COA )

 For those who want to go beyond the batch track, we can provide a Certificate of Analysis. Each certificate is specific to the customer requesting with details such as the PO and the gallons of DEF sent out. For some companies the COA is important, it is simply a more formal document than the report created in the DEF batch tracking page.

4. Dedicated tankers & seals

Last it is important to point out, part of the Quality Assurance Program is having dedicated tankers for bulk delivery with NOXGUARD numbered seals. When a bulk load of DEF is ordered, we load it in one of our dedicated tanks and use a numbered seal that gets confirmed by the customer upon delivery. The reason is to prevent any tampering of the product, the customer can be sure that the quality of the product has not been compromised during the shipping time. Dedicated tankers are an added measure to certify that the product maintains its standard of quality. There will always be a greater chance of product cross-contamination when a tank truck is filled with another liquid and then washed to deliver DEF. With NOXGUARD this is not a chance we are willing to take.

 

Noxguard fleet

We have worked hard to provide you the most information and transparency when it comes to the quality of our product. The QAP is just another tool we created for our customers, when buying NOXGUARD, you will know exactly when and how it was produced!

In our case not only will you get the best quality product but also a one of a kind customer service.
