Hello Folks… We are back on this series and in case you landed on this entry first, it is probably a good idea to go and read part I of our series. Hit the link now.. BULK DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF) EQUIPMENT – WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO JUMP INTO BULK? PART I
In the first series, we focused on your bulk tank, its standard sizes, and how to fill and dispense when considering a bulk DEF tank storage system. Next, we are going to focus on your bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pump systems.
There are a few questions worth considering, so let’s tackle them.. let’s dive in by expanding with examples to give you a good visual.
Q1. Are you considering your future growth, and not just your immediate needs?
Q2. Are you needing a system that will be stationary for the bulk transfer of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF)?
Q3. Are you wanting more flexibility as you get going with your new bulk DEF pump transfer system, giving you room to grow?
These initial questions will serve as a catapult into the options available so that we can expand on them. Our hope is that this small guide can help you make good decisions on not only your immediate needs, but also to help you look into your future growth.
Enter the dedicated and stationary bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) equipment transfer system.
These systems are a robust solution and are geared towards hi-flow applications. These systems should be able to be configured from simple packages to more complex weights and measures approved packages, with different power sources available.
Why are these systems preferred? These systems are truly a work-horse, stationary, and super hi-flow ready. They are preferred because they will allow you to do the following functions:
1. If you are filling/reselling bulk quantities, these systems can be configured to push over 100 GPM.
2. They are capable of receiving dual hose reels, giving you bulk hi-flow through one reel and medium flow on the second reel for IBC Totes and 55 gal drums.
3. They are capable of being able to operate under different power sources, such as generators, gas driven pumps, as well as 220v, 240v, single phase, and 3 phase. All depending on what you may have available at your location.
So, if you are needing a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) bulk transfer system that can grow with you, provide you with impressive flow rates, and give you more options than a BMW CONNECT DRIVE SYSTEM, then this may be the package for you.
Enter total mobility for bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) equipment.
This option is all about giving you flexibility at your bulk tank set up as well as on the go. This is a great system for those of you that are wanting to cautiously jump into bulk DEF but need a single system that can accomplish a couple of functions, and do them remarkably well.
These packages will help you do the following:
1. Fill totes and drums from your bulk DEF tank.
2. Disconnect the unit from your bulk tank set up and carry it with you on the road to make deliveries.
3. You will be able to hide it in a small corner of your truck or warehouse, taking up minimal space.
4. You can configure these units as base units still pumping 25-30 gpm. These models are a great bargain and used in tote-to-tote transfer. Do not confuse entry level with less quality. These systems have the same heavy duty dolly as the more robust systems, so you are going to get the same dolly platform.
5. You can also configure these units to be at 45-50 gpm, and have truly become the best bang for your buck, period. This is the system that most customers desire when needing a single system that satisfies stationary needs as well giving you total mobility.
6. Lastly, if you are needing a weights and measures approved unit, the system is still capable if pumping 30-35 gpm. This unit is for those that are ready to take their delivery program to a new level, giving customers a printed receipt after every refill.
Summarizing… as you plan your new bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Equipment needs. Keep in mind the following:
1. Foot print available for your new bulk tank set up. (see part I of this series)
2. Equipment needs for future growth, not just for today.
3. Do you need something stationary that can handle hi-flow rates… or do you want a jack of all trades?
In the next entry, we are going to focus on actually transferring Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
Stay tuned for connections, accessories, and closed loop systems.
