Benecor DEF Mini-Bulk Systems Perfectly Designed for Fuel Islands

Trucking and diesel industry outlets are taking note of a new DEF product line aimed to make bulk dispensing a reality on a larger scale. It's from Benecor, a leading manufacturer of complete Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) systems and a Husky Corporation strategic alliance partner. Bulk Transporter, Discover DEF and Fleet Owner recently carried a news release on the new product line.
Benecor’s Mini-Bulk Standard Duty Series is available in three different sizes of DEF storage and dispensing capability. All are designed for use on standard fueling islands, with turnkey installation that allows fleet and retail customers to start pumping DEF quickly

“This is an exciting new product line that offers a truly unique solution,” said Husky Corporation Executive Vice President Brad Baker. “Benecor designed the Mini-Bulk Standard Duty Series based on feedback about what DEF customers need in terms of size, shape, footprint and cost.”

There are three sizes Mini-Bulk sizes: 750-gallon, 1,000-gallon or 1,500-gallon. And the 1,500-gallon version is the largest on-island DEF option on the market.
Standard-Duty Storage: Warm or cold weather storage applications
Standard-Duty Systems: Storage and dispensing for warm weather applications
Standard-Duty Plus Systems: Storage and dispensing in warm or cold weather

Because DEF freezes at 12˚F (-11˚C), the Standard-Duty Plus systems provide a unique optional package that will withstand even the harshest cold weather conditions.

“These products come at the right size and price-point to allow a large number of fleet, government, retail and unattended fueling site customers to capture the advantages of bulk DEF,” said Benecor President Brendan Foster. “With the number of vehicles that are required to use DEF constantly increasing, the Mini-Bulk series will make DEF bulk systems economically viable for increasing numbers of customers.”  

Benecor Mini-Bulk Standard Duty products are rugged fiberglass-based units that have been fully-tested to ensure years of trouble-free use. Benecor is the only manufacturer to use fiberglass construction, a material that is not affected by the corrosive nature of DEF. Benecor systems meet ISO 22241-3 & 4 standards for dispensing and storing DEF.

“We often say ‘When was the last time you saw a Corvette rust?’ when discussing the unique design benefits of Benecor DEF products,” Foster said. “There has been great feedback from producers and distributors about the Mini-Bulks series of products.” 

Urea-based DEF is sprayed into engine exhaust to breakdown nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from diesel engines equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. A recent Integer Research study found that a shift in the supply of DEF from jugs to bulk systems is driven by the rise in SCR-equipped engines in passenger vehicles, light-duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks, buses, off-road diesel engines (like agriculture and heavy construction equipment) and non-road diesel engines. The study estimated DEF demand would hit one billion gallons by 2019.

Customers will also find the added convenience of a streamlined ordering process that generates quotes for Benecor Mini-Bulk systems in real time.

“Ultimately our customers will experience not only better equipment but enhanced customer service as well,” Baker said.

Watch How the New Easy-to-Squeeze Fuel Lever Really Works

The innovative EZ Lever, the new easy-to-squeeze fuel nozzle lever from Husky Corporation, requires about half the force to begin dispensing fuel compared to a standard fuel nozzle lever. This short demonstration video shows how it operates and some of the design features that went into EZ Lever,

EZ Lever features a unique two-piece design to open the poppet, or main fuel nozzle valve, with approximately five pounds of force. Standard single-piece levers require 10 pounds of force or more to begin dispensing fuel. As a result, EZ Lever adheres to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. The design also permits exceptional fingertip control that allows purchases to be rounded off to the exact desired amount.
