Thunder Creek Equipment debuts new DEF saddle tank

Thunder Creek Equipment introduced a new industrial-grade DEF Saddle Tank at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis Wednesday.

The ISO-compliant portable DEF system – available in both 60- and 120-gallon capacities – is designed to be mounted to the frame rails of a truck chassis. The stainless steel DEF tank features a lockable, weather-sealed enclosure, a 12V sending unit with gauge, a locking fill cap and a skid base for mounting to the frame rails of a truck.

Luke Van Wyk, national sales manager and owner of Thunder Creek Equipment, says the new saddle tank provides a simple portable DEF handling solution that can be easily installed onto the frame rails of a truck chassis, allowing business owners to get clean DEF to wherever they need it.

The ISO 22241-compliant closed DEF system also features a lockable pump enclosure with an 8 GPM industrial-grade 12V DEF pump and a 20′ 3/4″ DEF hose with automatic shut-off nozzle. A 25-foot DEF hose reel is standard. The units also feature an interchangeable auto-trip nozzle and Micro-Matic Reusable Stainless Valve (RSV) fill coupler.

Available options include a digital DEF meter and swivel. The tanks can also be customized for northern climates with an optional Glycol DEF tank heater, a 120V DEF tank heater and a 120V pump enclosure heating blanket.
