In order to meet Emission Standards, new diesel powered plant equipment require a fluid called AdBlue™ to reduce the harmful Nitrous Oxides present in their diesel emissions. AdBlue™ is commonly mistaken as a fuel additive, when actually it should not be mixed with diesel at all and is dispensed into a completely different tank.
For many plant operators, AdBlue™ is still relatively new and filling up the vehicle with both diesel and AdBlue™ is not yet second nature. Unfortunately this is where the problem lies – accidentally miss-filling AdBlue™ into the diesel tank is a costly mistake to make! It can corrode the pipework and components of the fuel system, resulting in thousands of pounds worth of damage as well as having to pay a professional to drain the tank and flush out the system.
Centre Tank Services offer a simple solution in the form of the nozzle used to dispense the AdBlue™. The Piusi SB325 AdBlue™ nozzle, which will be showcased at PLANTWORX Construction Show 6th-8th June 2017, is available with a magnetic miss-filling spout. Thanks to its magnetic spout, the AdBlue™ nozzle will only release fluid into a fill point that has a partnering magnetic adaptor inserted into it. With a magnetic adaptor fitted in the AdBlue™ fill point only, the AdBlue™ nozzle can physically not dispense into the diesel tank as there is no partner magnet to open the magnetic spout. The accidental filling of AdBlue™ into the diesel tank is therefore avoided!
To meet ISO standards, most new AdBlue™ using vehicles and plant machinery already have a magnetic collar inserted into the AdBlue™ fill point at manufacturing stage. If you don’t think your machinery already has a magnetic collar fitted, a retrofit magnetic fill point adaptor is available to buy alongside the miss-filling nozzle.
Want to save yourself potentially thousands of pounds in plant repair costs? Simply change your standard AdBlue™ nozzle to the SB325 nozzle with magnetic miss-filling spout!
