DEF Transfer System – DEF-PRO 5000/6000 – FAQ


How to get the best use of TECALEMIT’s DEF-Pro Hi-Flow Transfer Smart Packages

This is a question about our bulk Urea/Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) System transfer systems that recently came up and wanted to discuss in depth to shed some light on the subject.
Hello friends!!  When you are discussing a new project with a potential customer concerning the transfer of Diesel Exhaust Fluid /Urea with one of our systems; the  DEF PRO 6000™ or the DEF PRO 5000™ , it is imperative to understand the full scope of work.  For instance, the basics of the systems such as GPM’s, electric vs gas driven, length of hoses,etc., gives us only half the story.  Don’t get me wrong.. . that information is needed. However, with more complex projects, we need to look deeper and understand how the system will be ultimately used.
Let’s jump in! –  Let’s start by explaining the electrical basics of the DEF PRO 6000™  bulk urea / diesel exhaust fluid transfer system. The majority our systems are fitted with AC  pumps with either a 110v or 240v power requirement.  If you are considering placing one of our urea / diesel exhaust fluid skid systems on a delivery truck, making it work from a DC power supply source; then a few items will need to be looked at.  One of those items is the power electric cable, the gage, and length.  Why is this important?  Well, because the longer the electric cable powering up the system; the higher gauge it will need to be due to power losses.  This is one of many small items that need to be taken into account and therefore it is important to try understand the complete system scope. Moving on, if you find yourself at the point where an inverter needs to be in place to power up the urea transfer system; then you may want to look into a Pure Sine Inverter. We can start by answering, what is an inverter? An inverter is commonly known as a device whose main purpose is to convert DC power or Direct Current Power, typically found in batteries; into AC power or Alternating Current Power. So, what can you do with an inverter? Well, for starters the power that is stored in a battery for example; can be used to power up other devices that would typically require AC power.  Furthermore, we need to clarify that there are many types of inverters and the one that we are covering here is the Pure Sine Inverter.  Power from DC to AC can vary and we can explain this from a rough or choppy sine wave to a smooth sine wave.

The commonly found choppy sine wave modified inverter will generate a simple wave that when illustrated looks more square then the standard smooth pure sine wave.

 It is obviously more difficult to produce a smooth AC current than the standard modified sine inverter .  However, you can still power up most consumer electronic devices with a modified sine inverter.  It is a different story with industrial equipment, which we are about to learn.  It is different when you are being faced with sensitive and expensive devices.  If we take a look at the pump of the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)/ Urea transfer skid system, the first thing that will happen is that the pump will spike amperage at start up, and will rely on the smooth sine wave to start up and keep working properly.

So, in order to maximize energy output, it is important to select an inverter with these points in mind: A) Hi efficiency B) Low stand by losses C) High Surge Capacity  D) Low harmonic distortion.

One of the most apparent differences between a Modified Sine wave inverter and a Pure Sine Inverter., aside the  fact that a Pure Wave Since can operate sensitive electronic devices requiring high quality waveform with little harmonic distortion, is that they have an excellent high surge capacity.  What does that mean?  Simple, it means that they can exceed their rated wattage for a very short amount of time. This will help your pump motor to start without a hiccup, even while drawing up to six times its rated wattage during startup.

So, remember to understand the complete project scope and how the system is ultimately going to be used on the field.  Check with our internal technical team, and also check with your installation team; and don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions.  We will let our experienced team provide you the support for a smooth start up.

DEF Mini Bulk Storage Tank - DEF-Pro All in One

DEF PRO All in One™ DEF storage tank system- Part II


DEF Storage Tank Systems for any climate

We are back on the blog picking up the topic for the All In One™ DEF storage tank systems.

If you have not read the first entry, part I, we discussed the basic elements of what an All in One™ is. Part I illustrated a quick view of the options, a look behind the scenes on the manufacturing and assembly, and the people behind it. If you missed it, you can take a look at it here, click here.

So, what we’d like to do next is highlight the details to help you understand what each package consists of, along with accessories, and specialty items.  You see, we get a lot of questions on these topics so what a better way to share these questions here on this platform.  It’s just how we do things!!

To start, let me walk through how our customers begin the RFQ process.

There are two standard models, defined as the summer package and winter package. You will find some components associated with each package as a standard item; keep in mind that you decide what you need and how you want the package configured. In other words, we want to be flexible to accommodate exactly what you need.

Summer Package(s)

DEF mini bulk storage tank - southern unit

The DEF PRO All In One™ summer package is a fully assembled out of the box system used for the safe storage and handing of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).  We get questions about site assembly or any further electrical work need on these units.  These DEF storage tank packages are plug and plug, ready to go, simple and easy.  If you are on the southern belt, where we see snow every 15 years, then the summer package is for you.


  • Hornet W85 Hybrid pump
  • On/Off  Switch
  • Automatic nozzle
  • 15ft delivery hose
  • Flow meter
  • Powder-coated lockable cabinet

Now we get into what we all love to do….We listen to your needs and offer solutions. For instance, in this set up; the DEF PRO All In One™ needed a system that would help track users and vehicles. TECALEMIT’s Wonderbox (fluid inventory management system) was the perfect answer to help secure transactions.

These same principles applies in many levels here guys. Sure, you see many items that are featured on our website, our Pinterest Boards, Facebook, etc.. but what about those instances when you are needing something special, something that resides in your imagination; this is where our years of innovation experience comes into play.

DEF mini bulk storage tank

DEF Mini Bulk Storage Tank – DEF-PRO All In One


Forward thinking from TECALEMIT takes DEF mini bulk storage tanks to the next level

We are happy to share the following entry, highlighting the DEF mini bulk storage tanks, and the evolution of these DEF storage tanks from the early days.

As most of us know by now, DEF has matured in the last 12 months, jumping ahead from its supply distribution of 55 gal drums and IBC totes into mini bulk set ups. A jump that although was expected, it came sooner than anticipated.

Enter, the DEF Pro All In One™.  This is TECALEMIT’s answer to helping you graduate into the DEF mini bulk storage tank set up.  Conceptually designed a few years back, the DEF Pro All In One™ has matured well in the industry and caught a lot of attention from the early prototypes.  Fast forward to 2013; and the DEF PRO All In One™ has gained several upgrades and the customization options needed to maintain its leadership.

Early beginnings

First of all, let’s quickly explore the early beginnings.  Let’s be honest, the ROI on any of the industry early units was not there.  They were expensive and new to a market place that still had a lot of questions about the long term of DEF. The idea of the All In One was placed on the sketching board out of the necessity to give the masses an alternative.  This same thinking follows into the second generation of DEF PRO All In One’s… Give the customer the capability and the customization options bundled in a value package; aimed to help distributors make the jump to the market need of DEF mini bulk storage tanks.

The package has extended its range of capacities and accessories that you can add to satisfy the most demanding conditions, whether you happen to be in a northern climate or a southern climate; this DEF mini bulk storage tank system can help you achieve piece of mind.

Looking forward

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) will continue to mature and grow in the US and with our friends up in the North (Canada); along with this steady growth; TECALEMIT INC is making the commitment to continue to innovate and push the design elements of the existing models.  The success of the DEF Pro All In One™ has always been customer driven, listening to you has made this DEF mini bulk tank storage and dispense system a success.
