Truckstop and travel plaza operators at the NATSO Show will see North Gilbarco’s fuel dispenser designed to offer diesel exhaust fluid and diesel at the same fueling position. The Gilbarco Encore S DEF + 1 dispenser makes its exhibition debut at the National Association of Truck Stop Operators (NATSO) Show Feb. 17-21 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Gilbarco says the new dispenser features a stainless-steel mass flow meter that measures DEF accurately and reliably and is Weights & Measures-approved. The dispenser is designed to prevent DEF freezing and crystallization with a thermostat-controlled heated cabinet and specially-designed optional hanging hardware. The hydraulics are stainless steel to protect against corrosion.
“Drivers clearly want the convenience of filling their diesel and DEF tanks from the same fueling position, anywhere on the island,” says Chad Johnson, marketing manager at Gilbarco Veeder-Root. ”Our 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.”
Gilbarco says the new fuel dispenser operates as an Ultra-Hi flow diesel master that can work with an Encore S diesel Ultra-Hi flow satellite unit on the other side of the truck to fill both diesel tanks simultaneously. The master also offers DEF.
