Air1® promote the importance of quality AdBlue®

With the implementation of Euro VI in 2014, Air1 will be promoting the importance of quality AdBlue and contamination issues at the show this year.

With many more vehicles now adopting SCR technology, it is imperative that truck and van owners have confidence in the source of their AdBlue and that full traceability to the point of manufacture is assured.

Visitors to the show this year will have the chance to see a commercial vehicle’s catalyst on display on the Air1 stand in hall 4, stand 4G60.

The catalyst has been sectioned so that drivers, hauliers, transport managers and any visitors to the show can see exactly how fine and delicate a catalyst really is and why it is imperative that quality AdBlue is used and careful measures are taken to avoid contamination of the catalyst. Most vehicle engine manufacturers will not accept warranty claims if a low quality “AdBlue type fluid” or AdBlue that has been modified has been used, ultimately resulting in costly repairs and vehicle downtime.

Since the implementation of Euro 6 for cars and vans, many LCV’s now also require AdBlue to meet emission legislation. So, as well as promoting the importance of quality AdBlue at the show, Air1 will be displaying a van on their stand this year to represent this sector.

Since the implementation of AdBlue into these vehicles, it has become apparent that there are some issues and knowledge gaps with AdBlue in the van market and the assumption that a vehicle can be topped up at an annual service is not realistic for any commercially driven vehicle. Air1 will have experts available during the 3-day-event to assist with any questions or queries around AdBlue in the LCV sector.

In conjunction with supporting any LCV AdBlue queries, the van on the Air1 stand will also serve to promote how Air1’s in-house engineering and bespoke design service will help keep your fleet running.

Visit Air1 at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2015 in hall 4, stand 4G60, to speak to members of the Air1 team who will be on hand to discuss any AdBlue queries or questions you may have .
