Western Global Offers Mobile Refuelers

Western Global is introducing Abbi fuel transport tanks to North America. Originally availalbe in the UK and Europe, the Abbi lines has been improved to better serve the rental industry, the company says.

Abbi mobile fuel tankThe Abbi mobile refueler is a trailer-mounted fuel storage tank, available iwht capacities raning from 264 to 790 gallons. It's double-walled and certified for safe storage and transport of fuel under UL, ULC and UN approvals.

Key features include: 

  • Secure, lockable equipment cabinet to enclose pumping and dispensing equipment
  • Direct access into the inner tank via access manway for cleaning and inspection
  • Mobile design with internal baffles for safe transportation
  • Forklift pockets for easy maneuvering.

The line includes the Abbi Blue model, a double-walled tank with dual compartments to store fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). To meet the challenge posed by DEF’s susceptibility to contamination, the Abbi Blue has a separate poly tank and pump cabinet for DEF, providing a closed environment for the fluid to be stored and eliminating the worry of cross contamination between fluids. With the introduction of Tier 4 machinery, construction and industrial operators are now faced with the challenge of having to safely transport and handle DEF. Using one mobile unit for both fuel and DEF provides greater efficiency in refueling equipment and less down time on the job site.

The release of this dual purpose unit will help rental companies minimize their risk when renting tier 4 machinery. Contaminated DEF can cause damage to equipment’s SCR system and engine, as well as void equipment warranties. Being able to offer a reliable and proven DEF solution to their customers can help to ensure they handle DEF properly and avoid unnecessary breakdowns.
