Fuelogic provide a nationwide service of high quality AdBlue products to all types of commercial customers in a variety of sizes, ranging from small 20L packs, 1000L IBC through to large bulks.
AdBlue is needed to meet legal emission standards to improve public health and reduce the UK’s overall emissions footprint.
Beyond the legal requirements of its usage, AdBlue also helps to reduce the number of harmful pollutants released from diesel-engine vehicles.
So what is AdBlue® exactly?
Chemically speaking, AdBlue® is a 32.5% solution of Urea in purified water, also known as a high purity operating fluid used in the emissions removal of diesel engine vehicles.
AdBlue® is stored in a tank on the vehicle and is 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.
After mixing, the exhaust gas and AdBlue® mixture passes into a catalyst system where a chemical reaction happens, 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 size, engine load, temperature and travelling terrain.
AdBlue is needed to meet legal emission standards to improve public health and reduce the UK’s overall emissions footprint. Beyond the legal requirements of its usage, AdBlue also helps to reduce the number of harmful pollutants released from diesel-engine vehicles.
This, of course, is beneficial for any business aiming to reduce its own carbon footprint, as well as helping to protect the environment. Here at Crown Oil, we’re doing all we can to reduce our own carbon footprint.
As the UK’s largest sole contributor of greenhouse gases, it’s no surprise that the transport sector is under increasing pressure to reduce pollution levels.
What does AdBlue® do?
AdBlue®, The pure diesel exhaust fluid
Since January 1st 2005, new HGVs sold in Europe have been required to comply with the Euro 4 emissions standard, which halves the emissions limit permitted under Euro 3. This is a drastic reduction in Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and soot particles in lorry and bus exhaust fumes.
Euro 5 is a stricter standard and was introduced in 2009, and in order to meet the environmental requirements of Euro 4 and 5 on polluting HGV emissions, the vast majority of manufactures have chosen Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to reduce their nitrogen oxide emissions. This involves incorporating the urea into an aqueous solution called Adblue.
What are the advantages?
Thanks to the use of Adblue in a vehicle’s exhaust system, around 85% of nitrogen oxide is converted into water vapour and harmless oxides. When fuel prices are high, this is a weighty argument, and provides an additional asset when it comes to protecting the environment as it reduces CO2 emissions.
A secure investment in order to meet future anti-pollution standards.
Selective Catalytic Reduction works throughout Europe with varying qualities of diesel fuel.
Designed to last as long as your vehicle, SCR doesn't require any maintenance.
No impact on frequency of maintenance and oil changes.
Reduces fuel consumption: a lorry using Selective Catalytic Reduction technology burns between 2% and 5% less fuel than a similar model without SCR technology...
