WHY USE AD BLUE?
A new vehicle or machine is an expensive investment so to keep it operating optimally and earning money is of vital importance.
Ad Blue is dosed into a catalyst system, it is necessary to limit the presence of certain elements and compounds which can block the active sites on the catalyst.
Such blockage can reduce the efficiency of the system, ultimately causing the pollutant levels to rise outside of the preset limits in the vehicle ECU, leading to power limitation until the problem is resolved and possibly needing replacement of the catalyst.
In addition, blockage of the catalyst can lead to undesirable back pressure in the engine, leading to reduced fuel economy.
Elements that can cause problems include those found commonly in tap water such as Calcium and Magnesium which can cause a build up of scale, similar to the type found in a kettle, iron or boiler.
This scale cannot be cleaned from the catalyst and is why it is important to never fill tap water into the AdBlue tank.
Ad Blue is used to remove harmful Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions from the exhaust gas of diesel engines which are fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after treatment systems.
