DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID

WHAT IS DEF?
– Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is an organic, non-toxic compound made of highest purity components.
– DEF is carefully regulate by the American Petroleum Institute
– DEF helps to convert NOx into Nitrogen gas and water vapor. It is stable, colorless, odorless, and meets accepted international standards for
purity and composition

HOW MANY MILES WILL A TANK OF DEF LAST?
– 2.5 gallons of DEF will yield over 800 miles of travel
– You can drive from L.A. to Boston and back on less than a single 23-gallon tank of DEF (estimated usage rate is approximately 2% per gallon of fuel)

HOW WILL TEMPERATURE AFFECT DEF?
– At temperature below 12°F (at which DEF will freeze) trucks will be immediately operational until the DEF tank-thawing process is complete
– There is no concern regarding thermal stress with the plastic DEF tank. Tanks have been extensively tested in a variety of extreme climates
– DEF, when heated and maintained at a temperature above 120°F, will very slowly start to form small amount of ammonia. It would take over
two year at this constant temperature to convert DEF into levels of household ammonia

HOW DOES EST INC HANDLE DEF
– All DEF tanks and miting equipments are dedicated to diesel exhaust fluid production
– Handled & packaged to ISO 22241 standards for cleanliness & product integrity
– All DEF fluid is filtered as we package totes and drums to 1 micron cleanliness
– Filled drums and totes are segregated and quarantined until full lab-test results are returned

WHAT IS THE IMPACT ON ENGINE MATIENANCE
– With Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), engine maintenance intervals will remain the same as 2007 maintenance intervals, with one
additional service point: the DEF filter
– The DEF filter should only need to be changed every 200,000 miles and can be changed in minutes
– With SCR, engine components last longer due to less heat generated and fewer contaminants. The result is longer overall engine life

FACT:
One and a half teaspoons of salt combined with 4500 gallons of DEF is enough to poison an SCR catalyst.

DEF QUALITY TRAINING AND GUIDANCE:
DEF is probably the most difficult product you will ever have to deal with because of its sensitivity to contamination. The smallest bit of contamination may render your product inappropriate for use in your truck.
Product Purity is essential to the performance and working life of your treatment system. A problem with your after treatment system can run into tens of thousand of dollars in repair and downtime costs.
EST Inc Ultra Pure product is manufactured to the strictest industry specifications for DEF to help prolong catalyst life.
The nozzle and filling equipments are used to fill the vehicle tank and can be a major source of contamination. It must be wiped clean before each use.
EST Inc has taken extreme measures to ensure that the product you put into your truck meets ISO 22241; the DEF quality specification. Processes have been put into place to guard against possible contamination, so that the customer can rely that he is getting only the highest quality product per industry specifications. EST Inc uses storage and handling equipment dedicated to DEF.
DEF is non hazardous by DOT, and is not regulated by EPA. It is classified as a non-flammable by the fire department.
We recommend that all DEF containers are kept inside out of the elements.
The valve on the bottom of the tote needs to be accessible for refilling.
The only materials recommended for wetted areas are stainless steel and high-density polyethylene. Avoid carbon steel, iron, nickel, or copper.
DEF freezes below 12°F and looses shelf life when the average daily temperature the fluid is exposed to goes about 86°F.
