DEF Storage: Transitioning from Drums & Totes, to Tanks


TECALEMIT consistently seeks out opportunities to create and design systems that fill a gap in the market. We thrive on being known as innovators in the industry, providing first of its kind equipment solutions that allow a healthy ROI for customers. TECALEMIT’s DEF-Pro All In One Smart Packages are DEF mini bulk tank systems that combine this level of innovation, creativity, and most importantly, value.

TECALEMIT introduced the DEF-Pro All In One Smart Packages back in 2010 when Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) was brand new to the industry. Units offered in the market at that time were less than cost effective and didn’t provide enough value to maintain a healthy ROI. TECALEMIT saw this as an opportunity to design a value-driven solution that functioned well, met the ISO standards mandated, and shipped easily. What resulted from our efforts is the industry-known DEF-Pro All In One Smart Tank Packages, which are truly the best plug and play systems in the market even still today.


TECALEMIT offers the DEF-Pro All In One Smart Tank Packages in three varieties – Economy, Southern, and Northern. Depending on where you or your customer are physically located and the types of weather conditions experienced there, will help determine which version is best suited for you. If you’re located somewhere that experiences extreme winter temperatures, we offer a Northern packages that comes with tank insulation and a cabinet heater. On the flip side, if you’re located where the climate stays consistently warm for the better part of the year, such as down South in Florida, our Economy or Southern packages would be best suited for you. They don’t include the insulation and heater components because you won’t need them.

Transitioning from Drums & Totes to Tanks

Frequently, we are asked by customers how to know when is the right time to transition their customers from storing DEF in 55-gallon drums and 330-gallon IBC totes, to a mini bulk tanks. Something to consider is are you filling totes weekly? If so, determine how many gallons of DEF you’re dropping each time and outline what your margins are. This will help you determine how you can transition from refilling weekly, to instead refilling every 4-6 weeks. TECALEMIT DEF-Pro All In One Smart Tank Packages start at a 500-gallon tank capacity and increase from there to 800-gallon, 1000, 1150, 1500, 2100, and larger depending on your customer, their needs, and what application would fit best for them.
