Adblue systems have been quite a buzz lately. Even the big manufacturing companies like Renault, MAN, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Iveco, etc., have begun to design one.
Moreover, it is necessary to install an Adblue converter system as it has been mandated by the EURO environmental standards of the European Union.
What are Adblue emulators, and why do you need one?
Before Adblue emulators, Adblue liquids were used. Adblue liquids, when injected into the exhaust setup of a vehicle, significantly depreciate the levels of toxicity of the vehicle emissions. This is a necessary action to take under the European environmental standards.
However, this system of injecting Adblue liquids could not work properly with heavy vehicles like buses or trucks. As these vehicles are under constant speculation by the government, they needed a device that could override SCR and exhaust in times of emergency, and that’s when the Adblue emulator came.
Adblue emulators worked specifically for every vehicle and even reduced the overall cost of maintenance expenditures.
- Replacing Adblue fluids with Adblue emulators saves around 5 percent of the annual fuel consumption. And for vehicles like trucks that have high mileage, this 5 percent reduction could be a huge amount.
- Moreover, there are lots of poor-quality Adblue liquids in the market. Using cheap quality liquids could jeopardize the SCR system as well as the metering module of the vehicle.
This is the reason why Adblue emulators were a much-needed innovation in the vehicle market.
Benefits of an Adblue Emulator
The most obvious benefit of an Adblue emulator is the savings (both time and money) it extends.
So let us delve a little deeper into the advantages they offer and why almost every logistic brand prefers them over the Adblue liquids. Here is a list of benefits an Adblue emulator offers:
1) Reduce the cost of SCR repairs or replacements
The prices of SCR systems of trucks rise high. In fact, without intricate insurance coverage, an SCR system replacement can cost you more than a thousand pounds. A full-fledged replacement can cost you around 6500 pounds or more if the damages are severe. Even the minor repairs take around 800 pounds, pump replacements can go as high as 2500 pounds. And a control unit exchange can charge upto 1500 pounds altogether.
Moreover, these replacements do not guarantee that your vehicle will function smoothly in the long run. This is because replacing essential components like SCR systems can cause compatibility imbalance.
2) Steps up in times of emergency
In times of SCR failure, the Adblue emulator perfectly imitates the SCR and keeps the vehicle intact. This could help you drive to your nearby service station without any problems.
Moreover, this imitation prevents your car from a major breakdown and saves fuel, and prevents power loss.
Therefore, an Adblue emulator would never abandon you in times of emergency. Instead, it will have your back during those times.
Legal norms associated with the Adblue emulator
It is essential to specify that some regions prohibit the use of Adblue emulators. Therefore, before using them, it would be best to analyze the environmental laws to confirm their legal status.
