Dresser Wayne Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dispensers Allow for Quick and Easy DEF Bulk Filling  at Truck Stops and Large Fleet Sites

Dresser Wayne DEF dispensers now shipping in North America.

AUSTIN, Texas (March 17, 2010) – Dresser Wayne (, a global leader in vehicle energy dispensing technologies, today announced its Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispensers are available in North America. DEF is a key component of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which is being installed on 2010 diesel trucks. SCR lowers the amount of NOx released into the atmosphere from a diesel vehicle and helps users meet the 2010 EPA emission standards.

Dresser Wayne DEF dispensers are designed to increase motorist throughput and ease the transition to environmentally friendly technologies for high volume truck stops and fleet fueling facilities. These dispensers use a narrow 40-inch wide frame that can be flexibly configured with either left or right-hand hose cabinet position. The dispensers install easily onto existing diesel fuel islands and can be used with above ground or underground tanks.

A patent-pending heated hose and nozzle enclosure with automatic door operation provides easy access and ensures that the DEF fluid doesn’t freeze in cold climates. The automatic doors can be locked in the open position to allow easier access in warmer weather.

Tom Glahn, Director of Fleet Fueling Sales noted, “The biggest difference between a DEF dispenser and a fuel dispenser is, first and foremost, that the hydraulic components must be compatible with DEF to maintain the quality and purity of the product. Our hydraulic components have been successfully field tested in Europe for over five years.”

Glahn added, “Travel center managers expressed concerns about the reliability of hose retraction systems, which we took into account when designing this dispenser. Our unique design minimizes retractor use by making the first six feet of hose required for normal reach, tension free. An extra six feet of retractable hose is available for extended distances.” Dresser Wayne DEF dispensers offer the convenience of filling vehicle DEF and diesel tanks at the same island. This dispenser features weights and measures sealable meters for retail sales, a small footprint, an in-dispenser card reader option, and an interface to POS and fleet card systems, which enables seamless integration into existing operations.
