Maintenance and repair of Denoxtronic systems in commercial vehicles

Five generations of the exhaust gas treatment and dosing system Denoxtronic were installed in a large proportion of diesel vehicles throughout the last 18 years.  This system injects the urea-water solution AdBlue into the exhaust stream and converts, in combination with the SCR catalytic converter, harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen. Around 12 million systems are in operation worldwide in trucks, construction and agricultural machinery. They are also used in stationary systems with diesel generators.
