Diesel Exhaust Fluid IBC Tank Information

DEF IBC totes are intermediate bulk containers with a pump and nozzle transfer equipment designed according to ISO 22241-3. They are engineered for the reusable storage and portable transport of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), also known as Aqueous Urea Solution (AUS 32). IBC Tanks provides DEF IBC tote transfer systems to suit portable applications with extensive DEF use in the transport, industrial, and agricultural industries. We offer DEF tote systems in 135 gallons, 275 gallons, 300 gallons, and 330 gallons, and in voltages from 12V, 110V, and 120V.

What is DEF?

DEF / AUS 32 is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, only slightly corrosive mixture of 32.5% urea and 67.5% deionized water used to breakdown pollutant nitrogen oxides generated during the combustion of diesel engine fuels as required by EPA regulations. IBC Tanks’ portable DEF tote transfer systems are fully compatible with DEF applications and suitable for long term storage.

Engineering of DEF IBC Totes

Diesel Exhaust Fluid totes are manufactured from food grade, virgin high density polyethylene (HDPE) resin, are ANSI / NSF 61 approved, and fabricated with UV, sunlight stabilizers to make them effective for extensive outdoor use. They are blow-molded from HDPE, producing a tank resistant to impact, puncture, and tearing. IBC DEF totes are protected and supported by a galvanized steel grid jacket. The steel cage resists rust and impact damage associated with normal operation and weather exposure.

These DEF IBCs are engineered for extended DEF storage while maintaining the strictest purity. They are designed to promote product stability and decrease crystallization issues associated with evaporation. Tote transfer pumps are designed to limit DEF pump cavitation and promote continuous operation.

DEF / AUS 32 approved portable tote transfer systems are designed for efficient transport, maneuverability, storage, and product filling and dispensing. They are DOT / UN 31HA1/Y permitted and labeled for various transportation methods. Our DEF IBC totes feature 4 way, cross directional access channels for pallet jack and forklift mobility. Tank walls are translucent for easy sight level gauging.

DEF Transfer Tote Specifications

IBC Tanks offers DEF IBC tote caddy systems with RPV top suction systems. They are available in 135 gallon volume capacity. Available voltages include 12 volt with direct current (DC) motors and 110 volt models with alternating current (AC) motors.

DEF transfer caddy systems are installed with a 10 – 15 GPM high flow pump, discharge hose with measurements 3/4″ by 20′, and stainless steel dispensing nozzle. Automatic or manual shut off nozzle models are available. The tank’s top inflow cap is a 6″, dual bung vented lid and MicroMatic RPV valve. These totes feature a recessed 2″ ball valve drain with camlock coupler compatibility.

DEF IBC Caged Tote Specifications

Galvanized steel caged DEF IBC totes are available in 275 gallon and 330 gallon volume capacities. Pumps are available in 12V and 120V models. For DEF transfer, these tote systems feature a 6.5 minute auto shut off 1700 RPM, 9 GPM pump with automatic stainless steel nozzle. The nozzle offers extended reach with a 20′ discharge hose. The system is fed by a 4′ tank suction hose to promote full fluid use. The tanks have a 6″ threaded and vented top fill, and a 2″ male camlock outlet valve. This DEF IBC tote transfer system has increased suction, fluid lift, and the built-in features to promote reliable, continuous duty operation.
