Thunder Creek's DEF Solutions resolve the inconveniences that come with handling DEF. They are designed in a way to maintain the purity of the DEF and protect the machinery's SCR system.
Contaminated DEF:
• Increases DEF consumption in the equipment
• Loses its effectiveness to removing pollutants
• Can cause malfunctions with the SCR system
• Can cause the equipment engine to shut down
• Can damage equipment
• Can void a manufacturer’s equipment warranty

Thunder Creek strictly adheres to ISO standard 22241 to ensure the purity of DEF is maintained during handling, storage and transport. Learn more here: All About DEF

Filling your trailer’s DEF tank
To fill the DEF tank with the 2-in-1 pumping system:

Set the valve to “Fill”

Attach the quick-connect stainless steel Micro Matic® coupler to the DEF hose.

Connect the coupler to the stainless steel container valve on your IBC tote.

When activated, the DEF pump pulls fluid from the tote filling the trailer’s tank.
Dispensing DEF into tier 4 equipment
To dispense DEF from the trailer’s tank with the 2-in-1 pumping system:

Set the valve to “Empty”

Attach the auto-trip nozzle to the DEF hose

Insert the DEF nozzle into your equipment’s DEF tank

When activated the system pumps fluid from the trailer into your equipment

The Thunder Creek filling and dispensing process is simple and accomplished without exposing the DEF to any outside contaminates.

A LP gas heating system inside the front toolbox keeps the pumping systems from freezing. Thermostatically-controlled. Includes LP tank brackets and cover. LP tanks are not included.
