Indian Oil signs agreement with Cummins Technologies for bulk dispensing of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) for BSVI vehicles
In the new emission era of BS-VI, all diesel engines would require to control NOx emissions by the use of a diesel exhaust fluid. To meet this requirement, Indian Oil has signed an agreement with Cummins Technologies India Pvt Limited for bulk dispensing of IndianOil's diesel exhaust fluid, branded as IOC ClearBlue.This exhaust fluid will be used in their advanced engines with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) systems.Mr. Subimal Mondal, Executive Director (Lubes), Indian Oil, and Mrs Anjali Pandey, Vice President (Engine Business Unit and Component Business), Cummins India, signed the agreement at Mumbai on January 17 2020.
Referring to the collaboration, Subimal Mondal said, IOC ClearBlue is recommended for use in all diesel vehicles that have Cummins engines or any other engines with Cummins SCR technology.IOC ClearBlue adheres to the highest quality standards by meeting IOC 22241 and AdBlue certification.
Anjali Pandey, Vice President, Cummins India said, At Cummins, we understand the need of the market. With this initiative, IndianOil's innovation in a diesel exhaust fluid - IOC ClearBlue - delivers superior results that ensure emissions controls.
India will shift to BS-VI from April 1st 2020. Following this change, the automakers are making several technical changes in diesel vehicles such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR), provision for fitting diesel particulate filter and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The SCR systems shall require DEF, an aqueous urea solution, for effective reduction in NOx emissions. Diesel Exhuast Fluid (DEF) is a high purity liquid composed of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water.It helps to reduce the amount of air pollution by lowering the Nox concentration in the diesel exhaust.
Going with the global trends, the bulk dispensing of DEF offers better cost viability to truck and bus owners as compared to packed products. With a proper technical understanding of the Cummins combined with the bulk dispensing IndianOil, the customers will get a world-class product for their vehicles.
