The AdBlue Cap article oN as below:

Publish Date: 26.04.12

A new product has been unveiled on the UK aftermarket, which protects the AdBlue tanks on HGVs from potential diesel contamination.

Contamination of the AdBlue system is an increasing problem for truck manufacturers and truck operators alike.

In order to comply with new emission standards the automotive industry decided to introduce SCR technology to diesel powered vehicles. SCR stands for Selective Catalytic Reduction, which transforms harmful exhaust gases into naturally occurring substances. As well known in the diesel car and van sectors, mis-fuelling is easily done and now the truck industry has its own problem of diesel contamination in the AdBlue tank.

It takes just a small amount of diesel in the AdBlue tank to turn an efficient truck into a nightmare breakdown scenario with repair bills reaching into the thousands.

AdBlue Cap, from aide automotive is a retro fitted anti mis-fuelling cap, which has a built-in mechanism, which only opens when the AdBlue nozzle is inserted (manual fill or magnetic pumped nozzles).

With the AdBlue Cap, a diesel pump nozzle cannot be entered into the tank, and diesel residue in the nozzle will run off through drain holes. Also the AdBlue Cap will prevent any debris from entering the AdBlue tank.

The AdBlue Cap is available in two sizes: 58 (Mercedes, DAF, MAN) & 77mm (Volvo, Scania, Renault, Iveco, Hino)
