500 Gallon DOT Fuel Trailer Details
What sets this fuel trailer apart is its shape, construction, and additional pieces of equipment that allow it to be safe for transporting fuel on the open roads. The heavy-duty roll over cage keeps the inlet valve and fuel pump secure in the event of a rollover accident. Keeping in roadway compliance with a 500 gallon DOT fuel trailer is important in order to avoid costly fines. Other needed components of the trailer include heavy duty fenders to protect tires and electric brakes with a breakaway switch.
This 500 gallon DOT fuel trailer is blasted and powder coated with multiple color options that last a lifetime. The tank itself is set up with a single baffle system to prevent fuel surge. Fuel surge occurs when the trailer is in motion and the fuel moves forward and backward, putting stress on the 90-degree welds of a square-designed diesel fuel trailer. The DOT approved fuel trailer has a rounded design that allows fuel to roll up the sides. The single baffle system slows the movement of fuel by limiting the amount of surface area that it can travel.
