The chemical characteristics of AdBlue require special storage and handling equipment. AdBlue storage systems can be manufactured from 1350 litres up to a capacity of 15000 litres, plus all our AdBlue tanks incorporate specialised AdBlue pumps suitable for aqueous solution, and are manufactured to fulfil the highest demands of quality, stability and longevity. Fuel Storage Systems will be pleased to offer advice and consultation with regards to bespoke Adblue installations.
To comply with Euro 6 regulations, most new diesel-powered vehicles built since 2006 use SCR technology to inject tiny quantities of AdBlue into the vehicles exhaust. When this solution combines with exhaust emissions, it produces harmless nitrogen and oxygen by breaking down the harmful mono-nitrogen oxides in diesel exhausts. This technology has been used in busses and HGV'S for a long time, so its effectiveness has been proven and its reliability is better than ever.
AdBlue is a non-toxic liquid that’s colourless in appearance and is a solution of water and urea – a substance found in urine. In AdBlue, the urea is exceptionally pure and is of a greater grade than that used in cosmetics, glue or fertilisers. Similarly, the water is de-mineralised, which is far cleaner than water from the tap.When purchasing AdBlue, you should check it meets the correct standards, so look for the ISO 22241 number on the packaging. This could also appear as ISO-22241-1, ISO-22241-2, ISO-22241-3. This will ensure the AdBlue doesn’t damage your car’s SCR catalyst – a costly repair. Assuming your AdBlue meets these specifications, one brand of AdBlue should be pretty much the same as another, in the same way that diesel fuel is fundamentally the same from one retailer to another.
