The Australian Trucking Association is flashing its headlights to warn of a worsening situation with supplies of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) throughout the country.
“Contractors and trucking firms and smaller operators were using 20L and 200L containers with an overriding concern for contamination,” said Sebco director Ed Harrison.
All modern tractor and higher powered truck engines are now believed to be using AdBlue as an additive to reduce emissions, including John Deere which recently changed its engine configurations. Fonterra’s tanker fleet is believed to be using it.
To avoid confusion Sebco has chosen a colour scheme for the AdBlue tanks that is a reverse of the colours of the diesel tanks: a blue container with a grey lid signals AdBlue.
“Major damage can be caused to truck and tractor engines if AdBlue accidently enters the diesel system.”
All AdBlue dispensing stations have electric pumps, either mains operated or with 12V rechargeable batteries and have electronic fuel level indicators with optional measuring and reporting options.
The pumps are designed to pump Ad-
Blue which has different resins and consistency from diesel and pumps slower for the reduced volumes.
The AdBlue dispensing stations come in three sizes; 1300L, 2300L and 4750L, priced from $6300 to $16000 excluding GST.
