Having the right tools for the job is important if you want to be able to offer your customers a high-quality level of service. CV Dealer takes a look at some of the products and equipment you should consider investing in, and where you can find them.
Prevalent in heavy commercial operators’ and dealers’ premises for some while, AdBlue solution is becoming increasingly commonplace throughout the commercial vehicle world as van dealers experience its use in light commercials for the first time at Euro 6. The liquid is injected into the exhaust gases of modern diesel engines as a post combustion process to reduce the percentage of harmful gases present in the vehicle emissions.
What dealers should appreciate is that AdBlue is very susceptible to contamination from both foreign matter and incorrect material selection.
Sealey stocks a comprehensive range of AdBlue equipment which is specifically designed to meet the demands of dispensing AdBlue correctly and safely. Items include AdBlue delivery nozzles, retrievers and pumps.
