Founded in 1906, Balcrank is one of the world's first manufacturers of automotive products. Many of the methods and devices used in lubrication service today stem from the basic patents and innovations of Balcrank and its engineers.

Balcrank Corporation manufactures and supplies fluid dispensing equipment used in the automotive, commercial and industrial markets.  Their products are designed for automotive quick lube facilities, dealerships, fleet, and commercial vehicle applications.

From the beginning, Balcrank has been dedicated to providing customers with the best products for the ever-changing automotive and industrial markets. Today, Balcrank continues its rich history at the heart of the American automotive industry.

DEF Packages

True Blue Oil Dispense Systems

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

The EPA has mandated strict emission standards for diesel engines and the US Clean Air Act now regulates the removal of harmful pollutants caused by diesel engines. As the industry has responded, light and heavy-duty diesel vehicles and buses now burn fuel 90 percent cleaner.

Today, the EPA is focused on non-road diesel engines, including agricultural and construction equipment, aircraft, watercraft, and locomotives.

To meet these standards, vehicle and engine manufacturers have developed a technology called, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for diesel engines. This technology uses Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to convert the NOX into harmless nitrogen gas (N2) and water vapor (H2O).

Designed specifically to handle DEF, Balcrank's True Blue systems and packages assist to reduce vehicle emissions. Balcrank offers drum and tote system packages for dealerships, garages, fleets, and commercial facilities. These packages are designed to make DEF refills convenient for technicians and drivers.

“Open” and “Closed” Coupler Systems

A critical system consideration in maintaining DEF purity is the type of dispensing system used.

Closed system containers have a valve coupling system that seals the container opening on drums and totes, Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC), to prevent dirt, debris, bugs etc. from entering the container and contaminating the diesel exhaust fluid. Liquid in container system is sealed and secure, throughout container life cycle.

Open system containers are drums or totes (IBC) that do not contain a valve insert in the container’s bung opening, potentially allowing dirt, debris, bugs, etc. to enter the container and contaminate the diesel exhaust fluid.

DEF Packages do not include coupler systems. You must choose a coupler kit to create a complete system for your fluid distribution needs.

See the TrueBlue DEF Product Mini Catalog for more information.
