What is and why use Adblue? Volvo Adblue Pumps for Trucks.
Local governments throughout the world and Europe have set strict NOx limits for diesel engines to ensure compliance with emission zone standards. Typically, urea based chemicals, better known as Adblue, are injected directly into the exhaust system to assist in the reduction of the emissions.
AdBlue is a clear mixture of demineralised water and pure urea (32.5%) and is also referred to as Diesel Exhaust Fluid or AUS 32. It is designed to reduce harmful emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from diesel vehicles to non-hazardous gases, in order to comply with more stringent emission standards.
What are the most common Adblue problems or issues?
Adblue elements are very susceptible to failure if misuse occurs or they are not serviced in line with manufacturers recommendations. The Adblue system common failures include using out of date Adblue, cross contamination from various input stations and not following recommended service intervals.
Where are Adblue pumps located on a truck or bus?
In contrast to a truck, where pumps are located closer to the exhaust system towards the second axle, the pumps of a bus/coach would be located at the rear of the vehicle near the exhaust system.
What happens if the Volvo Adblue Pumps system fails?
For the system to function effectively, these units must be maintained and the fluid must be free from contaminants. Failure of a system can be very costly for an operator. It is possible that misuse of the system can cause premature failure of the dosing modules and injectors.
Failures of Adblue pumps are common in the commercial vehicle and public transport sectors. A lack of maintenance of the systems causes most failures, as it can cause crystallisation problems, which also cause the system to malfunction. There can also be communication failures, oil, coolant or fuel contamination, blowing fuses, water ingress, a variety of intermittent faults, various sensor faults, fault codes in the units, and damaged connectors and pins.
