What is AdBlue®?

AdBlue® is a high purity operating fluid, used in the emissions removal systems of diesel engine vehicles and equipment. AdBlue® is a colourless, non-toxic mixture of urea and de-ionised water.

The AdBlue® is stored in a tank on the vehicle and from there dosed automatically by the ECU directly into the exhaust gas at a rate in relation to the amount of Nitrous Oxides (NOx) being produced by the engine.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

What is AdBlue® used for?

AdBlue is used to make sure diesel fuelled cars and heavy vehicles are compliant with environmental standards.

 

Adding AdBlue to your SCR system helps maintain legal emission limits. You can face large fines if your vehicle does not adhere to these regulations.

 

If your business uses heavy goods or industrial vehicles like tractors, trucks or buses, you will need to use AdBlue to negate the harmful effects of Nitrogen Oxide emissions.

AdBlue® specification

The technical name for AdBlue is AUS32. It is 1/3 aqueous urea solution and 2/3 deionized water. Before a vehicle’s exhaust can expel any nitrogen oxide into the air, AdBlue is sprayed onto these harmful gases through the SCR system, which then turns them into harmless emissions. Whilst often referred to as a diesel fuel additive, AdBlue is actually added to the exhaust fumes and not the diesel itself, meaning it is not technically an additive.

TECHNICAL

How does it work?

AdBlue® is a high purity operating fluid, used in the emissions removal systems of diesel engine vehicles and equipment. AdBlue® is a colourless, non-toxic mixture of urea and de-ionised water.

The AdBlue® is stored in a tank on the vehicle and from there dosed automatically by the ECU directly into the exhaust gas at a rate in relation to the amount of Nitrous Oxides (NOx) being produced by the engine.

Following mixing, the AdBlue® and exhaust gas mixture passes into a catalyst system where a chemical reaction takes place converting the NOx to harmless Nitrogen and Water, which are then expelled from the end of the exhaust.

During the reaction the AdBlue® is consumed and needs to be replaced by refilling the tank periodically. AdBlue® consumption is related to engine load, engine size, travelling terrain and temperature.
