In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency issued strict regulations associated with the exhaust emissions standards for vehicles and heavy machinery. The Nashville based DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) supplier, Parman Energy is the only marketer with a dedicated Diesel Exhaust Fluid supply. Along with this service they have developed a useful guide for proper management and maintenance of DEF equipment.

“Not only do we sell and service DEF equipment, but we also design and install a large range of DEF storage and dispensing systems.

Higher regulations and standards on engine emissions handed down from the EPA have impacted several industries across the board from industrial applications to automotive dealers. These regulations have resulted in the development of new technologies such as DEF, which help decrease the levels of pollutants caused by diesel engines. As one of the leading providers of industrial lubrication services along with fuel and petroleum products in the Southeastern regions of the U.S., Parman Energy has provided guidelines for management of DEF supplies and equipment.

Diesel exhaust fluid is used in a process called exhaust gas recirculation or selective catalytic reduction (SCR). SCR helps reduce the amount of nitrogen oxides produced by diesel engines by breaking the material down into nitrogen and water. All science aside, this means engines will create less smog during on-the-road-operation and testing. Although DEF is used to create cleaner emissions it requires special handling to maintain high levels of quality and also to prevent its product integrity.

A division of Parman Energy, Williams Lubrication Equipment, adheres to very strict guidelines when servicing and installing DEF equipment. Williams Lubrication Equipment offers a wide selection of Poly Tanks and storage accessories specially designed for diesel exhaust fluid. The lubrication and petroleum professionals add that not only is it necessary to have the right equipment to store DEF but also knowledgeable DEF technicians with a strong understanding of how to handle and dispense the substance.

“All of the technicians at Williams Lubrication Equipment have gone through a rigorous training program,” stated Hutch Hockenberger, Vice President of Parman Energy. “Not only do we sell and service DEF equipment, but we also design and install a large range of DEF storage and dispensing systems. Our goal is to make certain whatever equipment you need keeps your business running smoothly.”

Parman Energy recommends businesses using DEF equipment pay close attention to the regular maintenance and cleanliness of the system. Improper use can result in damage to a vehicle or the SCR Catalyst System, decrease the quality of diesel exhaust fluid and cause harm to the environment. DEF technology is fairly new and there is a large amount of specialized information related to the proper storage and disposal of the fluid.
