What is AdBlue® and which Japy pumps are compatible with it?

This decontaminating product, composed of urea and demineralised water, helps to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by transforming them via a chemical reaction into nitrogen and water vapour.

Now being used by the wider public, the means of transferring AdBlue® have become a recurring issue.

What are the characteristics and regulations concerning AdBlue®?

AdBlue® is made up of 32.5% urea and 67.5% demineralised water, and is used in the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) process that helps to reduce the production of nitrogen oxides in the exhaust systems of vehicles by up to 85%. Although it is non-toxic, AdBlue is a corrosive liquid that must be handled carefully and must not be allowed to come in direct contact with some materials such as iron or aluminium.

Although it is not classified as a dangerous product by the international transportation codes, the chemical composition of AdBlue® requires that certain precautions be taken. Wearing gloves and a device for protecting one’s respiratory tract, compliant with the safety standards, is recommended when handling this product. Hence, it is essential to opt for a reliable and high-quality transfer pump to accomplish your project under the best possible conditions.

A few physical characteristics of AdBlue®:

  • State: liquid,
  • Colour: colourless,
  • Flammability: non-flammable,
