The Hutchinson DEF (diesel emission fluid) heated hose uses positive temperature control technology or a conductive elastomer for the homogeneous method of uniform hose heating to de-ice frozen urea, AdBlue, or DEF for aftertreatment of exhaust NOx particulate. This technology allows for the same construction of hose independent of length and offers fail-safe operation by shutting itself off after reaching its desired level of heating. The technology also allows for reduced energy consumption and allows for longer length hoses, typical for off-highway vehicular equipment.
