Diesel Exhaust Fuel (DEF)

Pine Run is an experienced installer of Diesel Exhaust Fuel (DEF) fueling systems. Our company is one of the few installers in Pennsylvania with the expereince and background to install these complete systems.

As part of the Clean Air Act of 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated that all on-road diesel vehicles manufactured January 1, 2010 or later must reduce the harmful NOx emissions. The most widely accepted technology to comply with this regulation will be to inject DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) into the exhaust of vehicles using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. The chemical reaction between DEF and the exhaust eliminates the NOx, resulting in harmless nitrogen and water being released into our atmosphere. All diesel vehicles including most new diesel trucks, pickups, SUVs and vans are fitted with this technology and have a DEF tank that must be refilled regulary.

DEF product cannot be stored or dispensed using typical petroleum equipment. It is not compatible with carbon steel tanks or soft metals (iron, zinc, nickel, aluminum or copper). Fiberglass tanks and epoxy lined tanks have not been approved by the industry at this time. DEF is compatible with most plastic material (polyethylene and PVC), rubber and stainless steel (304 and 316) tanks.

Since DEF product integrity is critical to the SCR system it is important to utilize a company that is experienced in the installation of DEF systems.

"We are prepared to help current and new stations implement this technology" says Greg Dubas, President PIne Run Construction, "and as more truck stops and gasoline stations beging to offer DEF, we are looking at a future with more trucks including this cheaper additive that allowes diesel to burn cleanr with less impact on the environment:.

Pine Run construction has already completed DEF fueling facilities for customers like Pilot in Frystown, Pennsylvania and Sunoco in Jamesburg, New Jersey.
