Use of SCR Fluid (AdBlue®)

SCR System (Selective Catalytic Reduction) is a system integrated into vehicles as a necessity for exhaust emissions in new-generation diesel engines. This system is designed to prevent the release of harmful nitrogen oxide gases from the exhaust gas generated by the combustion in the machine.

Vehicles with an SCR system have a separate tank other than the fuel tank. The lid of this tank is blue to prevent confusion. SCR fluid should be added through this blue lid at certain intervals. The vehicle's relevant warning sign warns the driver when an addition needs to be made. The SCR system is generally effective at high engine revolutions. It is not cycled in a closed system as engine lubricant is not consumed.

After the warning lamp comes on, the engine usually protects itself, depending on the vehicle's make and model. While this is based on the complete stop and non-starting of the car in some brands, some brands only limit the vehicle's engine speed, and the car cannot reach a certain rate. In this process, water is added to the system instead of SCR liquid to extinguish the warning light, and adding different liquids will cause the system to break down and clog. In addition, since there is a sensor on the system that usually measures the amount of urea in the solution, you must use the right solution and quality product.

Ideal SCR fluid should be prepared with 32.5% urea and the remainder (62.5%) deionized water (or its derivatives). The urea in its content should be suitable for industrial, that is, automotive. AdBlue® is a registered SCR fluid brand of the VDA (German Automotive Industry Association). In line with the information mentioned above, the use of AdBlue is very important for both environmental health and your vehicle.
