Specifications: Articulated Water Tank Trucks : WT25, WT30, WT35 and WT40

The Hydex WT Series Water Tank has been designed for maximum visibility and the lowest centre of gravity. Constructed of minimum A36 ASTM prime steel plate and with a capacity of up to 8000 gallons (30240 litres), the front and rear bulkheads are welded 100% inside and out for superior tank strength.

Multiple rows of flanged baffling in both transverse and longitudinal directions offer superior stability whilst the volume vent system prevents air entrapment during flood loading.

The inspection entry portal at the rear allows for easy access to the interior of the tank through a 24” (609mm) hatch. The mounting is a factory-like installation complete with rear pin mounts, sub-frame cushion blocks and retainer coil springs allowing better tank alignment to the chassis.

The controls are operated by hydraulically operated rocker switches located in the operator’s compartment.

The tank’s lighting consists of sealed LED 24V stop and tail light.

The spray equipment comprises a hydraulically-driven pedestal mounted pump capable of up to 1500 GPM; the rear spray bar has up to 3 fully adjustable spray heads with individual cab operated controls and two spray heads mounted on the front of the tank spray to the side. A gravity flow distributor rear spray with in cab control on and off allows for gravity flow application in lieu of running the hydraulic pump and can be used as emergency back-up.

The interior is coated 100% with anti-corrosion coating and the outside painted in standard yellow with HYDEX branding. The entire system is leak tested prior to shipping.
