Western Global introduces new line of DEF storage solutions

Western Global says it designed the DEF Cube and Top Tote with a poly interior to reduce weight and cost.

Western Global, a manufacturer of fuel and fluid storage solutions, introduces two new diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) storage solutions, the DEF Cube and Top Tote, to its lineup. The DEF Cube is a stand-alone storage tank that’s aimed at large quantities of DEF. The Top Tote can be attached to the top of a TransCube Global fuel tank for a two-in-one diesel and DEF solution.

The DEF Cube

The DEF Cube has a blue, cube-shaped design and a capacity of 132 gallons. This can be situated next to on-site fuel storage tanks so operators can fill equipment with both fluids at the same time. This DEF storage tank has the same features of the TransCube Global, including four-way forklift pockets for easy transport, lockable compartments for enhanced security and a stackable design. Like the TransCube Global, the construction of the DEF Cube allows it to withstand the harshest environments such as remote construction jobsites or mining and quarry operations. The DEF Cube offers a plug-and-play solution upon arrival and is available throughout North America.

The Top Tote

The Top Tote has a low-profile design to keep the overall height below 6 feet to eliminate the use of ladder or harness to access the ports. This DEF storage solution has a capacity of 110 gallons and can attach to three models of TransCube Global fuel tanks—the 20TCG, 40TCG or 50TCG. This is a significant advancement for end users because it creates a two-in-one storage solution that holds both DEF and diesel at the same time, the company noted.

Additionally, Top Totes can be daisy-chained on the 40 and 50 TransCube Global to maintain the proportional relationship of approximately 10% of DEF per gallon of diesel, according to the company. The Top Tote also includes a reusable nylon Micro Matic RPV valve. This valve is designed to pair with RSV/RPV couplers to provide closed liquid transfer. Designed for use in DEF closed loop systems, the valve automatically closes once disconnected, keeping the fluid in the hose as well as sealing the Top Tote against contamination. Like the DEF Cube, the Top Tote comes preassembled so it’s ready as soon as it hits the jobsite.

DEF storage technology

The design of these solutions also provides integrated heating options for the DEF, with both systems capable of operating for extended run times in cold weather conditions.The adaptability of the pumping systems allows broad compatibility of both tanks with a full range of equipment.

Operations can choose from two pumping systems for their DEF storage tank—an AutoDEF Replenish system or a transfer pump with a nozzle. AutoDEF Replenish monitors the level of DEF in the equipment and automatically refills the fluid as needed. Western Global notes that this makes it a perfect fit for those looking to extend run time on a stationary pump or generator. On the other hand, those running equipment that moves throughout the jobsite will benefit more directly from the transfer pump with a nozzle.
