AdBlue is a fluid that is introduced to a vehicle’s exhaust system in an attempt to reduce the nitrous oxide emissions that the vehicle expels. The makeup of AdBlue is a mixture of urea and deionised water. When the much more stringent Euro 6 standards were introduced back in 2016, Adblue became the go-to solution for helping diesel vehicles meet those new regulations by easily lowering emissions.
For fleet operators with onsite fuelling facilities, the need to store and dispense AdBlue next to their diesel installations has become quite the norm. With AdBlue prices being much more varied than diesel, it is important for customers to research the market before making any commitments. The price per litre can still be as low as 40 pence or way over £1 depending on the quantity brought and method of delivery, so the need to manage the usage across any sized fleet is very important.
Merridale have designed and developed the MX-P DEF AdBlue pump which not only boasts the same hard-wearing stainless steel housing as the rest of their MX range but the pump is also 100% compatible with Merridale fuel management systems so that every drop is accounted for.
This coupled with Merridale’s latest FuelWorks web-based software that is capable of running automatic FORS & emissions reports, gives the user peace of mind that they are taking complete control of their fuel management process as well as fulfilling specific environmental obligations.
The Merridale MX-P DEF AdBlue pump is available as a stand-alone pump or as an MX-I with fuel management built into it. It can also be included as part of a TWIN unit so the customer can have diesel and AdBlue dispensing capacity in the same place, at the same time.
Merridale can also supply the AdBlue storage tanks to suit the customer’s individual needs along with contents probes and Merridale tank management systems to monitor the tank stock.
