The Best DEF Storage Equipment for Small Businesses

Small businesses that operate diesel vehicles need to have a way to store DEF. There are a number of different DEF storage options available, but not all of them are created equal. Some DEF storage equipment is better suited for small businesses than others. 

 

Types of DEF Storage Equipment

There are two main types of DEF storage equipment:

  • Portable DEF tanks: Portable DEF tanks are typically made of plastic or metal and are designed to be moved from one location to another. They are a good option for small businesses that have a few diesel vehicles and need to be able to store DEF on-site.
  • Bulk DEF tanks: Bulk DEF tanks are larger and more permanent than portable DEF tanks. They are typically made of steel and are designed to be installed in a fixed location. Bulk DEF tanks are a good option for small businesses that have a fleet of diesel vehicles and need to store large quantities of DEF.
 
Factors to Consider When Choosing DEF Storage Equipment

When choosing DEF storage equipment, there are a few factors that you need to consider, such as:

  • The size of your fleet: If you have a small fleet of diesel vehicles, you may only need a portable DEF tank. A tank with a capacity of 50 gallons may be sufficient. However, if you have a larger fleet, you may need a bulk DEF tank.
  • The amount of DEF you need to store: How much DEF do you need to store? If you only need to store a small amount, a portable DEF tank will suit your needs.
  • The climate in your area: If you live in a cold climate, you need to make sure that the DEF storage equipment you choose is insulated or has internal heating to prevent the DEF from freezing.
  • The cost of DEF storage equipment: DEF storage equipment can range in price from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Make sure you choose an option that fits your budget.

Based on the factors mentioned above, here are a few of the best DEF storage options for small businesses:

  • Portable DEF tank: The PDU-P is a portable DEF tank that is made of durable plastic (HDPE) and is UV and rust resistant. It comes in a 33, 53, 113, and 153g capacity and is easy to transport with integrated carry handles. For colder climates, the PDU-M comes heated in 60g and 100g.
 

 

  • Bulk DEF tank: The EasyTank – 500 Gallon is a bulk DEF tank that comes in two variations:  Northern (insulated) and Southern (non-insulated). Starting at a capacity of 500 gallons, it is designed to be installed in a fixed location. 
 

 The best DEF storage equipment for small businesses depends on the size of your fleet, the amount of DEF you need to store, the climate in your area, and your budget.
