AdBlue Ready For Delivery

Since the implementation of the Euro IV engine specifications in 2006, Ford Fuels has been supplying the transport industry with the AdBlue® needed in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engines to help reduce their Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions.

Learn more about AdBlue...What is AdBlue?

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is a technique used to clean up diesel emissions. Exhaust gases can be treated with AdBlue to remove harmful pollutants, including nitrogen oxides (NOx), of which nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is the most harmful.

AdBlue is a colourless liquid made up of high purity urea and deionised water, and vehicles with SCR technology will have a separate tank filled with it.

Unlike diesel or petrol it is not injected into the engine,instead it is released into part of the vehicle’s exhaust. When heated in the exhaust, it decomposes into ammonia and CO₂. The NOx from the engine exhaust reacts inside the catalyst with the ammonia and the harmful NOx molecules in the exhaust are converted to harmless nitrogen. In fact, AdBlue® can reduce your NOx emissions by up to 90%!

AdBlue is a registered trademark owned by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), which ensures standards are maintained.

Learn more about AdBlue...Do I Need AdBlue?

All trucks and buses registered after October 2006 must be Euro 4, 5 & 6 compliant and must require AdBlue.

Since January 2011 all new agricultural vehicles fitted with “Stage 111B / TIER 4 interim & TIER 5” engines have required the use of AdBlue®.

Stage 111B / TIER 4 interim &/TIER 5;calls for a reduction of particulate matter (PM) by no less than 90% and of Nitrogen Oxides (NOX emission by 50% compared to Stage 111A / TIER 3 levels.

We store AdBlue across the majority of our depots so it is ready to deliver to avoid your business from running out.

Learn more about AdBlue...How Does AdBlue Work?

When combined with SCR technology, AdBlue converts nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from Diesel engines into harmless nitrogen and water vapour non-polluting components already present in the atmosphere.

A THREE-STEP PROCESS:
1/ AdBlue is injected into the exhaust pipe upstream of the SCR catalyst.

2/ Urea, from the AdBlue, breaks down into Ammonia when exposed to hot exhaust gases.

3/ Nitrogen Oxide from the engine is converted to nitrogen (a harmless gas, the main component of the air we breathe) and to water vapour, through the chemical reaction with the Ammonia in the SCR catalyst.

AdBlue – Frequently Asked Questions

What is Adblue?

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is a technique used to clean up diesel emissions. Exhaust gases can be treated with AdBlue to remove harmful pollutants, including nitrogen oxides (NOx), of which nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is the most harmful.

AdBlue is a colourless liquid made up of high purity urea and deionised water, and vehicles with SCR technology will have a separate tank filled with it.

Unlike diesel or petrol it is not injected into the engine,instead it is released into part of the vehicle’s exhaust. When heated in the exhaust, it decomposes into ammonia and CO₂. The NOx from the engine exhaust reacts inside the catalyst with the ammonia and the harmful NOx molecules in the exhaust are converted to harmless nitrogen. In fact, AdBlue® can reduce your NOx emissions by up to 90%!

AdBlue is a registered trademark owned by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), which ensures standards are maintained.

What is AdBlue made of?

AdBlue is essentially a solution of water and urea (a substance found in urine). However, in AdBlue, the urea is exceptionally pure and is of a high grade. The water used is deionised, so is vastly cleaner than water you would get from a tap. AdBlue is a non-toxic liquid that is also colourless in appearance, not blue as most people assume.

Can I use water instead of AdBlue?

No! Even though AdBlue is made up mostly of deionised water, you cannot use water as a replacement. All AdBlue products meet specific standards, so it is essential that you do not use any other products as they could damage your vehicles SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system resulting in expensive repairs and warranty violations.

Can a driver refill their AdBlue themselves?

Yes it is possible to refill a tank of AdBlue yourself.

How do I clean up an AdBlue spillage?

Any spillages of AdBlue should be washed away with water.

How do I top up my car’s AdBlue?

The majority of AdBlue tank filler spouts are located adjacent to the diesel spout. In most cases they will have a blue cap to help distinguish them. The vehicles handbook should tell you its location.

What happens if your car runs out of AdBlue?

The engine wouldn’t cut out the same as it would if you ran out of fuel, however the AdBlue is integral to diesel vehicles. This means your vehicle treats it like fuel and won’t run properly without it.

If you ignore the warning light and the AdBlue runs out the vehicle’s performance will be adversely affected (the vehicle does this to prevent any potential damage to the system occurring). Once you turn the engine off it will not restart if the AdBlue has run out.

Most vehicles will display a warning light on the dashboard when the AdBlue is running low.

 

How often does AdBlue need topping up?

The amount of AdBlue used depends on the type of driving being done and the number of miles covered.

What do I do when the AdBlue warning light goes on?

The Warning Light is there to tell you that you are running low on AdBlue. The vehicles information display screen will flash up warnings, the same as if your fuel was low. Failing to act on these warnings will result in the vehicle refusing to start until the AdBlue tank is filled.

What should I do if I put diesel in the AdBlue tank?

Don’t start the engine; call your breakdown service provider to get the tank drained. If you start the engine, you could damage the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and AdBlue injection systems and they may then have to be replaced.

What should I do if I put AdBlue in the diesel tank?

Don’t start the engine; you will risk writing off the engine and fuel system. Call a breakdown company or misfuelling service provider and get the fuel tank emptied and flushed out.

Does AdBlue affect fuel consumption?

No data has suggested that AdBlue has any adverse effects on fuel consumption.

Add blue is the miss spelling of the brand name AdBlue.
