DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF)
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is a non-toxic, high purity solution comprised of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water. Using this fluid in diesel-powered vehicles (such as trucks, buses, and tractors) helps to reduce the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted into the air by 90%. DEF is not a fuel additive and must be filled into the dedicated Diesel Exhaust Fluid tank on your diesel vehicle.
We have been providing Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) solutions to customers, distributors, and dealerships in the North American trucking market since 2009. With over 1,000,000 million gallons of bulk API certified Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) storage across North America, we're ready to meet your needs!
Our DEF is API Certified
The American Petroleum Institute (API) is the only national trade organization that certifies the quality of DEF to international standards and licenses manufacturers who consistently meet these standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The API Diesel Exhaust Fluid Certification Program is a voluntary program designed to certify and monitor DEF quality. API issues a seal to those manufacturers who are committed to quality and meet specific performance requirements. UltraPure® DEF is certified by API and proudly displays their seal on our packaging.
What this means to our customers:
- Provides rigorous monitoring of fluids in the marketplace
- Identifies brands meeting diesel engine manufacturer requirements
- Helps consumers easily recognize those brands

DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID CASE STUDIES
Read about real-life experiences using Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) from companies like yours in the industry. Learn what works best and what you should avoid!
OPEN VS. CLOSED SYSTEMS
While deciding between a closed or open system for your DEF, it's important to know the facts and be aware of what potential issues could arise.
DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID CONTAMINATION ISSUES
- Particle contamination is a leading cause of DEF issues.
- The most common cause of particle contamination is when the customer removes the cap or fills in a non-closed system.
- If the particulates make it into the trucks SCR system, a small filter in front of the doser will clog causing the truck to go into fault mode.
- 1-micron filters are used in Brenntag's system when we unload a tanker/rail car into our tanks when we fill totes or our tanker, AND when we pump off into the customer's tank.
- Particle contamination from the customer's tote or tank can block the 1-micron filter on the dispensing system causing the system to pump slow.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid Markets
ON-ROAD: AUTOMOTIVE & TRUCKING
In 2010, the EPA mandated that all diesel-powered vehicles must reduce their release of NOx emissions. The on-road sector was the first to be effected, which required all on-road vehicles manufactured beginning in 2010 must be equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) or Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system.
OFF-ROAD: AGRICULTURE & CONSTRUCTION
In 2008, the EPA implemented a new tier 4 emissions standard to reduce off-road diesel engine emission which successfully concluded in 2015. The new standard applies to all off-road diesel engines used in a wide range of construction, agricultural, and industrial equipment. Nitrogen (NOx) emission levels are said to be decreased by more than 90 percent.
RAIL & LOCOMOTIVES
In 2008, the EPA finalized the program to reduce diesel locomotive emissions where any locomotive engine manufactured in 2015 and later must comply with the new exhaust aftertreatment technology. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is used to reduce nitrogen (NOx) emissions, which are said to decrease as much as 80 percent.
The EPA regulations to reduce NOx emissions on all diesel powered engines also applies to newly manufactured marine equipment, as well as vessels that are remanufactured by their owners or operators. All vessels with 600 KW (804 HP) and above are phased in with the 2014 EPA Emissions Standards requiring vehicles to incorporate an exhaust aftertreatment technology.
