AdBlue – 32,5% high purity urea solution. (32,5% urea and 67,5% demineralized water)
AdBlue reduces emissions of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) in vehicles equipped with SCR technology. This liquid is injected into the flow of exhaust gases. This begins a chemical reaction which removes the polluting oxides of nitrogen (NOx), converting them into harmless water and nitrogen in a process known as Selective Catalytic Reduction, or SCR for short.
AdBlue is harmless for the environment and health. It is non-flammable and non-explosive. The consumption of AdBlue ranges between 4% to 5% of diesel oil consumption, depending on the engine type ( Euro IV or Euro V). One of polish companies produces AdBlue under the brand name NOXy™.
In trucks, AdBlue consumption is between 4%-10% of fuel consumption. In commercial cars it’s much less – about 1.5Litres of the liquid for every 100km on the road. This means you will fill your AdBlue tank much less frequently than your tank for diesel.
AdBlue system (SCR) in trucks must be efficient if you don’t want power to be limited.
AdBlue doesn’t like very low or high temperatures so the idea of using it in our climate is somewhat courageous.
Also, SCR system consists of numerous elements which can break down. Ecology has its price!
Once the system is damaged it must be repaired. It’s also possible to stimulate AdBlue to work properly by using emulator. Thanks to such solution there’s no need to exchange the following components:
- AdBlue pump
- temperature sensor
- NOx sensor
- AdBlue level sensor
- pressure sensor
- vehicle doesn’t take AdBlue liquid
- SCR elements don’t have to be repaired or exchanged
- vehicle doesn’t enter emergency mode
