The preservability of AdBlue®
AdBlue® can be stored in specific containers. Indeed, with its corrosive effects on certain materials, it is necessary to make sure that the equipment is well adapted to the use.
AdBlue® should ideally be stored within a temperature range of 0 ° – 30 ° C, and kept in a dark place. It must be properly sealed when not in use. AdBlue® can freeze at temperatures below -11 ° C; Therefore, it is important to store it in storage areas that respect these constraints. In case AdBlue® freezes, you can always reuse it when it thaws out. Indeed, a physical change does not impair its qualities.
The storage area must be clean and free of dust to avoid any contamination, especially when a vehicle is filled with AdBlue®.
Can I store AdBlue® on site for my fleet of diesel cars?
It is possible to buy AdBlue® in bulk and store it to save in maintenance costs. Several distributors of AdBlue® offer to install storage solutions like tanks and barrels.
On the market, some fuel distributors such as Total are beginning to install connected tanks for their business customers. These connected tanks enable fleet managers to refill automatically.
Stella, a fuel distributor for hauliers, offers tanks to truck fleet managers.
