Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Houston Texas- DEF Closed loop system

Ok so based on current feed back; we are starting this new short series on Diesel Exhaust Fluid and its options on handling, storage, equipment, and more.

On the previous post, we learned that in order to meet Tier 2 emission standards, vehicle and engine manufacturers, have developed a technology called (SCR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction for diesel engines. These engines now use diesel exhaust fluid to convert the oxides of nitrogen (NOx) into harmless nitrogen and water, pertty cool don’t you think?

So, currently one of the biggest concerns right now is contamination. So, let’s talk about the distributor cycle:

One way–> That means that you buy the IBC totes, you fill them, transport them to your customer, you dispense diesel exhaust fluid and finally dispose or recycle. Now, this can get costly as you start doing this over and over again in servicing your customer.

Returnable / Refillable–>  Again, you buy the totes, you fill them, transport them to your customer, you dispense diesel exhaust fluid, and return or refill.

On-site refilling–> Buy the IBC totes, fill them, transport to the customer, dispense diesel exhaust fluid and refill on location.

Now, storing diesel exhaust fluid in intermediate bulk sizes, the choices are as follows:

55 gallon drums: Poly drums

275 gallon IBC Totes: Blow molded

330 gallon IBC totes: Blow molded

Now that you have your options for containers and how to refill them; how do you keep Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) from being contaminated?

Transliquid’s internal policy is to sell Diesel Exhaust Fluid with closed loop systems only; you will not find open systems available through us.

Open and closed systems:

I don’t need to reinforce the fact that DEF purity is essential. So a critical system consideration in maintaining DEF quality, is the the type of system used. Let’s look:

Closed:->This system have a valve coupling system that seals the container opening on drums and totes (IBC) to prevent dirt, debris, bugs, etc…from entering the container and contaminating the diesel exhaust fluid within. The DEF inside the container is sealed and secure throughout the container life cycle.  If you have any more questions on this system, Email us.

micromtic_756-008BThis is a Micromatic closed loop coupler for illustration purposes only.

Open–>system containers are drums, totes (IBC) that do not contain a valve insert in the container’s bung opening.

Now both systems are approved for DEF, but again; Transliquid’s policy is to only sell closed loop system to help you avoid contamination.

Transliquid Technologies – thinking different.

UL 142 and Diesel Exhaust Fluid – a new package is born

The UL-142 above ground fuel tank, is the work horse of most of our customers, and in this case we took the UL 142 design to a higher level by adding a heavy duty industrial insulation for a liquid product that easily hardens under a lower temperature range; the challenge was to be able to keep it fluid while staying away from the cost of adding heaters.

On that same note; I have been recently asked about bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid and carbon steel storage tanks; and while initially the ISO 22241 standard for Diesel Exhaust Fluid calls for the incompatible approach with carbon steel tanks, there is now a new liner that we are offering through our group of partners that has been independently tested and proven to resist corrosion and does not contaminate Diesel Exhaust Fluid. This new epoxy internal liner can easily be applied into our cylindrical storage tanks for the bulk storage of Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

So, what you get is an above ground bulk storage tank that is heavily insulated; we know that heat plays a very important factor for the shelf life of DEF, coupled with a heating/cooling system, and an internal liner approved specifically for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). That is our new approach at delivering a quality, approved, and durable above ground storage solution that is still less expensive than a Stainless Steel tank but specifically tailored to meet the demands for the Diesel Exhaust Fluid market.
Enjoy the video and let us know what you think; your feed back is what lead us to develop this package.  Thank you !

How Diesel Exhaust Fluid works (video) – Houston Texas USA

Our good friends at SunCoast Resources posted a great video on how this awesome technology truly works. Diesel Exhaust Fluid here in Houston and abroad is picking up speed and Transliquid Technologies is excited to be involved with this changing technology.

Being able to reduce emissions to nearly zero is extreme, who would have imagined.  If you are driving a new truck with this new SCR technology, sound off here and let us know how you are liking your new engine.

 

P.S. Send us an email and ask us how you can get DEF delivered to you.

Piusi CUBE 70 & CUBE 56 – how diesel dispensers should think

Earlier this week I was talking to an international customer that had a need to track his diesel fuel consumption, and at the same time alleviate the need to forecast, and secure the availability of diesel fuel to their own fleet.  The conversation started with the Piusi CUBE 56 and Piusi CUBE 70 dispensers, both very capable of handling flow rates between 15-18 gallons per minute.

PIUSI Cube 70 & 56

These PIUSI CUBE pumps were developed for the distribution of Diesel fuel in a non-commercial application. Vehicles can be refuelled quickly and safety with CUBE fuel pumps. Options are available for measuring and recording the quantities dispensed.

The flow-meters mounted on CUBE pumps have sturdy mechanical readout systems whose reliability and easiness to use have been time proven over and over again.

After further discussing the topic deeper as to why this was important to them.  We found out that there was a very rooted problem; they lacked the ability to know how much and how many times their folk lift fleet of 75 units were stopping to refuel.
The current system did not allow them to track fuel dispensing, forecast fuel consumption, or even have a any security measures as to whom had access to the fuel. That conversation lead us to the PISUI CUBE 70 MC, with this dispenser our customer is going to be able to:

1.  control up to 50 users

2. and download data can into a PC both by means of the magnetic key and by cable connection.

3. Store data for the last 200 forklifts on its local memory

4. Accept vehicle registration numbers and odometer readings.

Call us to set up a demo or simply to ask questions; we look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your continued support.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid IBC Pumps Houston, Texas (video)

Hi folks, first of all thank you for all the emails with great questions. PIUSI has been offering DEF pumps in Europe since approximately 2004, and currently over 30,000 Diesel Exhaust Fluid pumps in service; I believe that says a lot.

PIUSI_DEF_PUMP-resized-600

Because of the great amount of questions and great response, we have put together a fun short video highlighting this DEF IBC Pump dispenser.  I personally like it because it is portable, AC power, you can easily move it to the next IBC tote, and it has a great proven record.

Anyway, enjoy the short video and leave us your comments; we always love to hear back from you.

By the way, we do plan on logging the service hours of the units already in service here in Houston.  If you are out of town, no worries; we can arrange shipping easily.

Visit our main page for Diesel Exhaust Fluid distribution and packaging here in Houston Texas.

 

Happy Friday everyone!
