Thunder_Creek_Diesel_DEF_Transfer_Tank_2[1]Thunder Creek Equipment released a combination diesel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) transfer tank for pickup trucks.

The combo tank provides 100 gallons of diesel and 18 gallons of DEF capacity. It fits into the bed of pickup trucks with both pumping systems concealed within its structure, the company said.

“We know that many equipment owners are still in the early stages of determining the best way to handle DEF in the field,” said Luke Van Wyk, national sales manager and owner, Thunder Creek Equipment. “This combination tank–which takes up a similar footprint as today’s pickup truck tanks–provides owners with an efficient and contained way of transporting both diesel and DEF out to the field in a design they are familiar with.”

The combo tank features a 100-gallon steel diesel tank, and an 18-gallon polyurethane DEF tank that can be substituted with a tank and pumping system for engine or hydraulic oil. Both fill nozzles, available in automatic or manual, are located on the driver side of the truck and extend out 10 feet from the tank.

An optional thermostatically controlled DEF heating system is available to ensures that the temperature of the DEF tank, pumps and hoses doesn’t dip below 25 degrees F. The 12-volt Webasto heating system runs off diesel from the tank.

Diesel is pumped at 15 gallons per minute through an industrial-grade 12-volt pump, while DEF is pumped at up to 10 gallons per minute.

The entire transfer tank and all of its components are concealed within a lockable, weather-sealed enclosure, and the option for diamond plate aluminum doors.
