Gilbarco unveils new DEF dispenser

Christopher Goodfellow - 21 February 2011

Petroleum equipment supplier Gilbarco plans to debut its new Encore S Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispenser at the NATSO Show, 17-21 February, Lake Buena Vista, FL.

The new dispenser features a stainless steel mass flow meter to measure DEF. It is Weights & Measures approved and designed specifically to prevent DEF freezing and crystallization with a thermostat controlled, heated cabinet and specially designed optional hanging hardware, according to a statement from the company.

Chad Johnson, Marketing Manager at Gilbarco Veeder-Root, said: "Drivers clearly want the convenience of filling their diesel and DEF tanks from the same fueling position, anywhere on the island. Our unique design allows retailers to make the most of their forecourt space and allows for the card transaction to take place at a single fueling position, improving forecourt throughput."

NATSO, formerly known as the National Association of Truck Stop Operators, is a national trade group that represents more than 1,070 travel plazas and truck stops.
