PCL introduces the Horn Tecalemit Pump for AdBlue

When William Cleary bought a new tractor for his farm, Curraghmore, in Nenagh Tipperary it came with a modern emissions control system which necessitated the purchase of a new pump.

In addition to the normal fuel tank, the CASE IH 125 EP tractor houses a smaller tank to hold AdBlue liquid, which the system requires. So Mr Cleary searched the internet for a suitable AdBlue pump and came across the HORN TECALEMIT HORNET W85 H Inox Drum Pump.

AdBlue is a solution of high-purity urea in de-mineralized water that is clear, non-toxic and safe to handle. AdBlue is not a fuel or a fuel additive but is used to reduce Co2 emissions from exhaust gases of commercial diesel vehicles. AdBlue is stored in separate tank on the vehicle. Although non-toxic and safe to handle, should the liquid become in contact with air it will start to crystallize and it is the crystals that are corrosive to ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Therefore a dedicated pump capable of remaining unaffected by the corrosive properties of Ad-Blue was required to fill the tank.

"The HORN TECALEMIT HORNET W85 H Inox Drum Pump was specified as being suitable and seemed to be a quality unit," said Mr Cleary. "So I ordered it online from Germany complete with filling hose and safety filling nozzle. I was contacted the next day by distributor Murphy Engineers Ltd to confirm delivery times, and received a follow-up call from the supplier, PCL Business Development Manager Gareth McGuigan to confirm that the unit had left Germany.

"I am very happy with the pump. It is a well made quality unit and should last a long time. It means I can fill my vehicles up from a barrel of AdBlue on the farm, and it's a good investment as any other means of filling the tank is open to contamination which could cause expensive damage to the tractor."

PCL services the agricultural market with solutions for dispensing systems for oil or diesel fuel storage tanks. Products from the HORN TECALEMIT range include: the TMS III oil management system; the HORNET G 40 & G 50 DC Drum Pump range; the HDM eco family of fuel management systems; the TankQuick fuel extraction product; the 80 Kombi used oil collector; and the HORNET W 85 H INOX pump from the AdBlue range as recommended by Mr Cleary.
