This technology reduces the environmental impact in diesel German group is now displayed in a work where the operation of the system is explained, the advantages and also the way it is implemented in different designs.
The AdBlue technology is one of those used by Volkswagen in reducing the emissions of its diesel cars, achieving this improvement through a set of processes that are carried out within the engine itself. This system uses an additive with its own name AdBlue created based on urea and demineralized water, having a tank itself and can be purchased in various locations.
This video is explained how this technology can, through the Catalytic Reduction Catalyst, improve the environmental performance of Volkswagen models, a process that occurs in the automobile exhaust system. When the combustion gases reach this point (after passing the turbo) receive AdBlue mixture directly, initiating a chemical process that converts nitrogen oxide (NOx) into water and nitrogen.
This system uses various sensors to always provide the perfect amount of AdBlue to perform this chemical reaction and other situations that Volkswagen had attention was the fact that this additive freeze below 11 Celsius, which is why the tank has its own system heating. Although the consumption of AdBlue depends on the car’s weight and handling characteristics, the German manufacturer states that on average is spent 1.5 liters of this product per thousand kilometers. Another concern is the fact that the vehicle should have, necessarily, always AdBlue in the tank, a warning is displayed when the existing amount allows only 3500 kilometers later being given a new reminder when it comes to 1000 kilometers.
