Clear Def BlueDEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Part No. DEF003/5166 Warranty  
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is one of the key elements of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) process used by Diesel Engine builders to meet EPA 2010 regulations. BlueDEF is a nontoxic solution of 67.5% purified water and 32.5% ultra pure automotive grade urea. BlueDEF is not a fuel or fuel additive. Instead, when injected into the exhaust stream and passed over a catalyst, BlueDEF helps convert NOx into nitrogen gas and water vapor - two harmless and natural components of the air we breathe. BlueDEF is stable, colorless and odorless, and meets ISO Standards 22241 for purity and composition and is an American Petroleum Institute (API) certified diesel exhaust fluid. These are the highest quality and safety standards in place to ensure optimum SCR performance. Making sure you do not run out of BlueDEF in a SCR equipped truck is simple - watch the DEF gauge, which is part of the diesel fuel gauge, for when it is time to refill. DEF is stored in a dedicated tank next to the fuel tank on the driver's side. The tanks range in size from 6 to 23 gallons depending on the truck's application. The DEF tank fill opening is designed to accommodate a DEF fill nozzle to ensure only DEF is put into the tank. A diesel fuel nozzle will not fit into the DEF tank opening. Our patented closed liquid dispensing system provides everything you need to effectively dispense your BlueDEF. In order for BlueDEF to work well, product integrity is critical and our dispensing systems are the only way to maintain this quality. These reusable systems are also cost effective by providing a significant savings over single-use containers. BlueDEF dispensing systems are available in configurations for fleet, retail and commercial applications. BlueDEF is key to helping improve fuel economy by up to five percent while simultaneously reducing exhaust emissions.

            A:

            Hi kip! Good question. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) has a shelf life of two years. However, this can be reduced if the fluid is exposed to direct sunlight or if the temperature of the DEF remains above 86°F (30°C) for sustained periods. Expectations for shelf life as defined by ISO Spec 22241-3 are the minimum expectations for shelf life when stored at constant temperatures. If stored
            between 10 and 90 deg F, shelf life will easily be one year. If the maximum temperature does not exceed approximately 75 deg F for an extended period of time, the shelf life will be two years.

            A:

            Hi JJ! Good question though, thanks for asking. This Diesel Exhaust Fluid begins freezing at 12° Fahrenheit (-11° Celsius). If DEF freezes, the engine will start and run properly (no de-rate or malfunctioning lights). A DEF tank heater will thaw the fluid for use and at no point will this affect the operation of the engine.

            I called the store and they typed that part # into their system and he pulled it out of stock and it is a 1 gallon container of Blue DEF. So I think the website has the wrong info.
