Oilmen's Introduces 3rd Generation Truck Tank for Hauling DEF

We are excited to introduce our 3rd generation of insulated truck tank for hauling Diesel Exhaust Fluid.  This lastest design incorporates several years of experience and helpful feedback from our customers.

Freightliner DEF Truck Tank


Standard equipment for our unit includes insulated tank, insulated and heated cabinet, insulated and heated piping, and protected pumping equipment.  Our new 4000 gallon DEF truck tank has the ability to self-load from a large DEF bulk tank that is commonly used at a distributor’s facility, bulk plant, or railcar.  This feature has been added in response to trends that are developing in the way DEF is being handled throughout the supply chain.  (I'll talk more about that in a future post)

 Truck Tank for Diesel Exhaust Fluid

The newest generation truck tank has piping that allows the operator to bypass the hose reel for rapid metered deliveries.  This is a nice feature in the event that the tank (or other vessel) on the receiving end of the delivery is 1) of a large capacity and 2) is located near the truck. Since the longer hose on the reel can reduce flow rates, the bypass feature enables the operator to complete the delivery in a shorter amount of time.  Shorter delivery times are a big deal at busy truck stops when your truck is blocking a fuel lane. Also with Hours-Of-Service (HOS) Regulations it is more important than ever for operators to work as efficiently as possible.  This means selecting the right tools for the job.

Customers have requested that ladders be mounted on the driver-side or curb-side of the truck.  Our standard personnel ladder is now mounted at the rear of the tank, although we will still be offering side mounts of the ladder as an option (as long as we are able to work with the frame layout of the chassis you choose).  This allows for more flexibility at the loading rack.

Many of our customers are seeing demand for the product grow.  In some cases the DEF delivery units are seeing more hours of operation than traditional fuel and lubricant delivery equipment. Taking this into consideration we have improved the cabinet design for better accessibility to components for easier maintenance and prolonged equipment life.

We sincerely appreciate all of our customers that have supported us over these last few years as we have strived to introduce the most advanced, long-lasting DEF delivery equipment to our industry.

P.S.  The smooth uninterrupted side shell of the tank would make a great billboard to promote your business with a graphic wrap.
