Yara’s Air1 team give you easy to follow guidelines on the Diesel Exhaust Fluid do’s and don’ts of using Diesel Exhaust Fluid. Print them off and attach to your Diesel Exhaust Fluid containers, or workshop bulletin board.
No foreign matter, in solid or liquid form should be added to the containers
When you top off your Diesel Exhaust Fluid tank you should never need to use other equipment such as funnels, jugs or diesel equipment to refill your vehicle as the Diesel Exhaust Fluid containers usually contain nozzles to help you dispense easily.
When handling small quantities of Diesel Exhaust Fluid, protective clothing is not required. However, you may prefer to wear gloves to prevent sensitive skin conditions. To ensure your SCR system continues to perform effectively and is protected from the risk of damage you need to follow some simple rules to prevent your Diesel Exhaust Fluid being compromised. It is very important that no other product is added to your Diesel Exhaust Fluid, including tap water, as it may damage your SCR components.
Contaminated Diesel Exhaust Fluid or inferior quality [(ie does not meet standards set in ISO 22241 (ISO-22241-1, ISO-22241-2, ISO-22241-3)] may cause detectable damage to the vehicle’s SCR system.
This will have the following consequences:
Yara uses raw materials that are ‘prime produced’ for its Air1 branded Diesel Exhaust Fluid, which ensures the quality is uncompromised and meets ISO 22241 (ISO-22241-1, ISO-22241-2, ISO-22241-3).
Note: The vehicle is designed to prevent Diesel Exhaust Fluid from freezing onboard.
