It is very easy to store and handle AdBlue because it is a non-hazardous or dangerous liquid.
How to store AdBlue
AdBlue should ideally be stored within a temperature range between 0 and 30°C, and kept protected from direct sunlight. It should be properly sealed when it is not being used. It is possible for AdBlue to freeze at -11°C, so it is important that you use a storage area that is not below this temperature. If AdBlue has frozen, it can be reused when it has thawed as it will return to its original state.
The storage area must be clean and free from dust to avoid any contamination, especially when a vehicle is being filled with AdBlue.
If buying packaged AdBlue we will deliver AdBlue to you in sealed packs. If the storage instructions are followed, then AdBlue can be stored for up to a year. If you need to store AdBlue for longer or in difficult conditions, eg a combine harvester then it is best to drain the AdBlue first or to analyse the AdBlue to ensure it remains within the specification needed.
How to handle AdBlue
Do not use old diesel or oil containers to transfer AdBlue into the tank. Any non-dedicated equipment can contaminate AdBlue. Even very small quantities of fuel/oil/lubricant can damage your SCR system.
When you refill with AdBlue, there is no need to wear protective clothing. However, we recommend that you wear gloves to prevent irritation to sensitive skin. Please read the safety data sheet on AdBlue when you handle large quantities of AdBlue.
