The Most Economical Way To Buy AdBlue® For Commercial Vehicles
Diesel engines still play an important role in the commercial vehicles sector, which is why the demand for AdBlue, a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), has grown exponentially in recent years. AdBlue is a fluid that helps to reduce emissions in diesel engines and ensure companies are complying with environmental regulations. In this blog post, we will discuss the most economical ways to buy AdBlue for commercial vehicles.
What is AdBlue?
AdBlue is a urea-based solution that is injected into the exhaust system of diesel vehicles to reduce the level of harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions they produce. Most modern diesel commercial vehicles are equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems that require the use of AdBlue. This system injects AdBlue into the exhaust gases, causing a chemical reaction that converts NOx into harmless nitrogen and water vapour.
Purchasing and storage options for AdBlue
It goes without saying, but the higher quantity of AdBlue you buy, the lower the cost you’ll pay per litre. As such, you may find it cheaper to look into sourcing your own supplies of AdBlue instead of relying on filling stations all of the time.
The good news is that there are a number of affordable AdBlue commercial fuel solutions available, including:
IBC (Intermediate Bulk Containers)
An IBC is a large, reusable container that can store up to 1000 litres of AdBlue on your premises. It’s a cost-effective solution for businesses that need AdBlue delivered on a regular basis. At QUS, all of our AdBlue IBCs are compatible with CDS coupler attachments (top empty) and gravity feed (base empty) pipework. However, it’s worth noting that a forklift is required to unload the IBC when it is delivered.
Bulk delivery is ideal for businesses that require large quantities of AdBlue. As AdBlue bulk suppliers, QUS offers AdBlue delivery nationwide via road tankers. The fuel can be pumped straight into your tank as long as a Todo dry-break coupling is fitted. What’s more, all deliveries are metered off, meaning you only pay for what you receive.
If a vehicle operator only requires a small amount of AdBlue, then the 210L drums available from QUS are a suitable solution. The drums can be easily fitted with a pump to dispense the AdBlue, meaning a minimal amount of equipment is required to empty out the drum. What’s more, they take up very little space, which is ideal if you don’t have a lot of storage capacity.
AdBlue storage tanks are a great option for businesses that require large quantities of AdBlue and have room to house them on-site. Offering protection against weather and impact, the tanks have to be bunded to meet UK regulations. However, they are usually available in capacities of up to 10,000 litres.
