What is diesel exhaust fluid? Diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF, is a non-hazardous fuel that optimizes combustion in your vehicle while decreasing the transmission of harmful pollutants. But there’s more to it than just that.
Here at Bradenton Fuel Oil, we are proud to offer diesel exhaust fluid for our customers. Since most of our customers come from construction, or farming and operate heavy machinery, diesel exhaust fluid makes the perfect resource.
What is Diesel Exhaust Fluid Anyway?
Diesel exhaust fluid is a non-hazardous fuel that optimizes combustion, enhances power and reduces the need for maintenance on your vehicle. This mixture of deionized water and synthetic urea is a great option for Bradenton construction crews or farmers, as its benefits alone make it a superb resource.
How It Works
Diesel exhaust fluid is stored in a tank on your vehicle, and it’s injected into the exhaust stream.
The components and makeup of DEF is 32.5 percent urea and 67.5 percent deionized water. Deionized water is water that has had all its mineral ions removed. DEF is a selective catalytic reducer, which essentially means that it aids in the reduction of toxins from diesel exhaust.
DEF aids in the conversion of nitrogen oxides into ammonia and carbon. This conversion reduces the transmission of harmful elements into the environment.
The solution is safe to handle and non-toxic. It can corrode some metals, which means that it needs to be stored and transported carefully (we got the transport part covered for you).
For storage, it is recommended that DEF is stored out of direct sunlight in a well-ventilated area, and in a dry, cool environment.
