DEF dispensers require cold-weather care
Cold weather is here! One crucial aspect to consider ahead of winter is the functionality and reliability of dispensers with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and its proper handling during cold weather conditions.
DEF is a critical component for modern diesel engines, and its usage continues to grow across various industries. However, DEF can freeze at temperatures below 12°F (-11°C), potentially damaging your fuel dispensers, clogging lines, and reducing efficiency. Gilbarco DEF cold weather parts withstand extreme temperatures and ensure uninterrupted fueling.
DEF Heaters: A working DEF heater is crucial to ensuring your DEF dispenser stays up and running as they prevent DEF from freezing allowing a seamless fueling process.
DEF Diaphragms: Freezing temperatures can negatively impact the integrity of DEF diaphragms. DEF freezing can cause expansion, leading to diaphragm rupture or flexibility loss, affecting proper fluid dispensing.
Temperature Warning Systems: Our advanced temperature warning systems provide real-time alerts and notifications, ensuring you can monitor DEF temperature levels remotely and take necessary actions to avoid complications.
Gilbarco Veeder-Root's Catlow DEF Nozzles: These specialized nozzles feature materials and components made from cold weather-resistant material to maintain flow even in cold conditions as low as 40°F (4°C). Catlow’s DEF nozzle is cold-weather rated, the perfect choice for cold-weather locations.
Investing in these DEF cold weather parts now can safeguard your fuel dispensers and avoid costly repairs or downtime this winter. Ensuring the uninterrupted flow of DEF during winter will contribute to the smooth functioning of your operations, reducing any potential disruptions and maintaining the reliability of your diesel engines.
Contact your Distributor to find out if your DEF units are ready for cold weather and ensure they have sufficient stock to address failures quickly during the coming cold season. Now that winter is prepped for, you will be able to enjoy those much-needed summer BBQs free of worry!
