Benecor LLC unveiled what it calls the first urea dispenser for commercial and fleet applications at TMC's winter meeting last month. According to Brendan Foster, Benecor president, the dispenser is a key element in the Fenton, MI-based firm's approach to help the diesel market meet the EPA's mandates with solutions for the supply, storage and dispensing of the urea that is expected to be required for the operation of EPA-compliant diesel engines manufactured starting in 2010.

He says the dispenser “showcases a design concept for above-ground urea storage and for dispensing larger quantities of urea.” The dispenser features an insulated and heated design to ensure urea quality (as urea freezes at approximately 11 deg. F). In addition, the dispensers include over-fill protection, level sensors, leak sensors and telemetry features to track the on-board supply of urea.

Benecor offers two models. One is equipped with a commercial point-of-sale system for retail applications, such as truckstops, and the other is a fleet model geared for use at a fleet's own location.

The minimal installation cost of Benecor's dispensing system overcomes a major infrastructure/implementation challenge, states Foster. He said a 1,000-gal. system would cost $30,000 to $50,000 to install.
