Storage of AdBlue

AdBlue® should be stored out of direct sunlight between -6°C and 25°C in a clean and sealed container or dispensing unit. Storing it in the wrong equipment may result in costly damage to your vehicle due to contamination, which can result in SCR-catalyst replacement and downtime.

Storage Requirements

Environment:

Check local legislation for environmental requirements. Some countries require a bunted AdBlue® storage tank when you are storing AdBlue® or an anti-spill container under the IBC or drums. Contact local authorities for further information on storage requirements.

AdBlue® Suitable materials:

AdBlue® can only be stored in high density Polyethylene, polypropylene or stainless steel containers. Suitable materials for piping, insulation and sealing:

  • Polyisobutylene (synthetic rubber), free of additives – (for seals and hoses)
  • PFA, PVDF & PTFE (teflon) free of additives (for sheet – lining for chemical equipment/support rings, seals)
  • Copolymers of (P)VDF and HFP (viton), free of additives – (for the insulation of electrical wires & seals/o-rings)

Do not use corrosive materials like copper, nickel, zinc, mild iron or aluminum. You can check the entire list in the ISO 22241 recommendations.

All materials used by GreenChem meet the AdBlue® requirements and all experience gained since the start of AdBlue® are implemented in the GreenChem AdBlue® products and available for you.
