Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Scorpion D.E.F. :
 
A mixture of 32.5% high purity urea,  67.5% DI water, that is designed specifically for use in SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) systems to reduce NOx emissions.
Urea is automotive grade. Product will not separate and must be manufactured, packaged, and handled to meet AUS032

Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid is injected into the exhaust. It works with the heat of the exhaust and a catalyst to convert NOx into Nitrogen and water vapour to be released harmlessly into the air we breathe.

Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid is API certified and meets ISO22241 specifications. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is non-toxic, non-flammable, colorless, non-hazardous, and very easy to use.

To get the most out of Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid the ideal storage temperature is between -5°c and 29°c. Shelf life is a function of Ambient Storage Temperature.  Expectations are defined in ISO 22241-3 when stored properly.

Scorpion Diesel Exhaust Fluid will degrade in time depending on temperature and exposure to sunlight. If the maximum temperature does not exceed approximately 22° c for an extended period of time the shelf life will be two years. 

•Drivers will have DEF indicator lights that are similar to a fuel tank in regards to the amount of product remaining in the on board tank.

•If empty the engine is throttled back. If water is put into the tank the engine will again be throttled back.

•If there is contamination the engine will yet again be throttled back.

•These systems are designed to operate in cold climates

How much does a truck use?

•It is expected that DEF consumption will be approximately 2% of the total diesel fuel consumed

Example A – Medium Duty – 10 avg gal size (10 fills)
50,000 miles annual at 10mpg fuel economy
Approx 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel needed
5,000 * 2% = 100 gallons of DEF/year

Example B – Heavy Duty – 20 avg gal size or (20 fills)
120,000 miles annual at 6mpg fuel economy
Approx 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel needed
20,000 * 2% = 400 gallons of DEF/year

Check Out This Example:

  • A truck with 7 mpg improves to 7.28-mpg fuel economy (4%)
  • That same truck drives 120,000 miles annually
  • Fuel Consumption goes from 17,143 gal to 16,484 gal
  • (659) Gallons less fuel used!
  • Assume diesel at $3.00/g = $1,977 savings
  • DEF consumption (2% of 16,484)
  • DEF cost $3.99/g * 330 gallons = $1,316
  • FUEL SAVINGS with annual DEF costs = $661 savings
