AdBlue® is a clear and colourless liquid with high purity. Its chemical name is aqueous urea solution 32.5% by weight and its commercial name is automotive grade urea solution.
AdBlue® is produced from the concentration stage of the urea manufacturing process. A stream of 80% urea solution is taken, which is mixed in a static mixer with another stream of demineralised water of high purity. This guarantees quality in accordance with very strict specifications contained in ISO 22241.
SCR technology requires a continuous supply of AdBlue®, 32.5% urea solution of maximum quality, as a reducing agent.
AdBlue® is classified in the lowest risk category of transportable fluids. It is not combustible, nor is it mixed with the fuel. It is transported in a separate tank in the vehicle. Like diesel, AdBlue® can be refuelled at service stations (whether public or owned by the customer). If AdBlue® is spilled on your hands, simply wash them with water.
It is estimated that the consumption of AdBlue® in industrial vehicles represents 5% of the total diesel consumption and 1% in the case of passenger cars.
The use of contaminated or poor quality AdBlue® can lead to costly breakdowns in your vehicle’s catalytic converter. The trademark AdBlue® is owned
by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), which guarantees that all the quality specifications contained in ISO 22241 are met.
Be sure to only purchase a product bearing the AdBlue® name along with the registered trademark (®) on the label for your vehicle. Fertiberia AdBlue® is guaranteed to contain all the quality required for its use in SCR technology.
