NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Cummins Filtration is now offering smaller-sized diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) containers as well as dispensing equipment.
The company has expanded its Fleetguard DEF offerings to include 1-, 2.5- and 5-gallon containers as well as air and electric pump dispensing equipment, the company announced. Previously, the company only offered DEF in bulk or in 330-gallon, 275-gallon and 55-gallon totes and drums.
The new container sizes will allow drivers operating trucks with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to carry extra DEF along with them while on the road.
Meanwhile, Cummins Filtration says its DEF has been certified by the API. API certification is voluntary, and ensures the fluid meets high quality standards through the manufacturing process and all the way through the supply chain.
“Cummins has always been committed to providing high-quality products our customers can depend on,” said KC Hall, director of DEF business development. “Meeting the ISO specifications and adhering to the API certification process helps to reassure our customers that they have chosen a reliable DEF source with the consistent high quality controls required to optimize and protect their equipment investment.”
Customers running EPA2010 trucks with SCR will be able to purchase Fleetguard DEF through Cummins Filtration’s network of 20,000 locations and 8,000 retailers in North America, the company says. They’ll also be able to order DEF along with the filter and coolant products already offered by Cummins Filtration.
“When one considers the supplier administration and transportation costs of alternative DEF supply, we believe our freight-included DEF offering will be an attractive alternative for many of our delivery locations,” said Hall. “We can also offer dedicated, streamlined DEF shipments as desired by our customers and as the DEF consumption demand grows in the future.”
