AdBlue® (DEF) helps to reduce the amount of harmful nitrogen oxides found in the vehicles’ emissions. AdBlue emissions control equipment cleans exhaust gases helping cars to comply with the new EU6 exhaust emissions regulations.
AdBlue is appearing in more and more cars, including VW, Skoda, Seat, BMW and Mercedes; as more vehicles comply with the Euro 6 diesel standard the use of AdBlue is likely to increase. Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), commonly referred to as AdBlue in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and standardised as ISO 22241, is a solution composed of 32.5% urea and 67.5% demineralised water. It is non-toxic, colourless, odourless and non-flammable. AdBlue is injected into the engine’s exhaust gases by the ‘BlueTEC’ system and in the resulting chemical reaction, the nitrogen oxides in the exhaust are converted into harmless nitrogen and water vapour. It is a consumable used in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in order to lower the concentration of nitrogen oxides in the exhaust emissions from diesel engines.
We have a section in our website devoted exclusively to Adblue handling.
