What is AdBlue ?
Adblue is a vehicle operating fluid for new engine technology. It is based on a high purity urea solution, therefore it is not a fuel nor is it mixed with fuel. If you have a machine/vehicle that requires AdBlue you will need to dispense this product into a separate tank which will be located on the vehicle, identified by its blue cap.
Why do i need Adblue?
Over the past 15 years exhaust emission limits have been lowered to help reduce the amount of harmful toxic gas that is released into the atmosphere.
How does it work?
SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) is now fitted in most new machinery and vehicles. These vehicles require a re-agent known as AdBlue to be sprayed into the exhaust system.
AdBlue is used to create a chemicle reaction in the catalyst so that NOx gassed are converted to harmless steam and nitrogen, which are emitted from the exaust pipe.
