What Is Diesel Exhaust Fluid and Is It Safe for Farm Tractors?

October 28, 2010 at 8:48 AMRing Power
describes what diesel exhaust fluid is and its safety aspects.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), also knows as AdBlue, is a non-hazardous, high-purity, colorless solution containing 32.5% automotive grade urea. The rest is de-ionized water. diesel exhaust fluidThe automotive grade urea is made up of ammonia and carbon dioxide just like other urea products. The difference is that DEF has all impurities removed that could interfere with AGCO and Challenger’s e3™ System. DEF is available at all Ring Power locations selling e3-equipped products, many truck stops (such as Pilot, Travel America, Flying J, and Loves), and truck dealerships. The list of available outlets is growing daily.
Urea has many uses. It’s used as an artificial fertilizer and is found in cosmetics and other products. It’s manufactured to ISO and SAE standards. Facilities that comply with these standards are inspected and certified by the American Petroleum Institute to ensure the highest quality product.
DEF is non-toxic, non-hazardous, and requires no special permits or licenses. Tier 3 e3 agricultural tractors will use up to 3% of DEF as compared to diesel fuel consumption. Even with a small 8-gallon tank, that is roughly one DEF for two fuel fills.

Manufactured to ISO Standards
    – 67.5% Automotive Grade Urea
    – 32.5% De-ionized Water
Non-Toxic and Non-Hazardous
Only Slightly Corrosive
Consumption Rate
    – 3% of Diesel Use
    – Roughly 1 Tank per 2 Diesel Tanks

Farm Tractors Use SCR to Meet Tier IV Regulations: How does it work?

September 17, 2010 at 9:55 AMRing Power

This blog post is a continuation of how Challenger farm tractors are meeting the Environmental Protection Agency's new Tier IV interim regulation for offroad machinery, which begins January 1, 2011. Growers are in need of a balanced solution, investment versus operating costs. Challenger's brand of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), called e3, proposes to help meet these challenges with higher fuel savings and fewer particulate matter, all without a loss of power, and in some instances more power.

So what exactly is SCR? And how does it work?how does scr work?

Selective Catalytic Reduction, or SCR, was first introduced in the 1970’s to power plants burning fossil fuels to reduce their nitrogen oxides (NOx) outputs. This technology continued to grow through the 1980’s and is now commonplace. SCR is a multi-stage chemical reaction that efficiently reduces the amount of Nox. The system is simple, consisting of a tank to hold the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), a metering mechanism, an injector, and the SCR catalyst. The metering device communicates with the engine ECU to determine how much DEF to inject. The DEF is inject into the hot diesel exhaust stream after it leaves the turbo charger. The fluid evaporates, freeing ammonia (NH3), and the ammonia reacts with the Nox to form a new molecule. That compound then passes through the SCR catalyst to be broken down into water, H2O and nitrogen (N2).

► Selective Catalytic Reduction
    – Chemical process used in industry and on-road markets

    – Drastic reduction of NOx

► SCR uses:
    – Combination of hardware, software & diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) - Urea

► After-treatment
    – Benefits customers
