SPARTANBURG, S.C. — PARTANBURG, S.C. If you saw this Oilmen's Truck Tank on the road, it would be difficult to determine what makes it so special. The difference lies within. At first glance, you will see what looks like a standard multi-compartment aluminum tank mounted on a 2012 Freightliner M2 chassis, designed for hauling bulk lubricants.
However, the first compartment is lined with a proprietary epoxy lining that has been tested and approved for use with DEF and meets the ISO standards. As the product leaves this compartment, it passes through all ISO 22241-3 compatible components on its way to a tote, bulk tank, or another vehicle.
This third system — dedicated entirely to the DEF compartment — consists of a Weights & Measures meter, pumping system, hose reel, and 100 feet of DEF hose. It is capable of delivering DEF at flow rates of 80 GPM. In addition to the DEF system, there are systems for two families of bulk lubricants.
The tank has a total payload Oilmen’s has been testing the lining at their facility for over a year. After monitoring the condition of the lining and having observed no degradation in its quality, Oilmen’s is now offering the lining as an option only on new aluminum tanks.
