Automotive Grade Urea used to manufacture AdBlue is produced from natural gas. The current conflict with Ukraine/Russia and subsequent sanctions imposed, have caused the price of natural gas to soar and has again reached a record high.European Urea manufacturers have already started to take the decision to implement either plant shutdowns or reduce production because the cost of production is too high. This in turn has led to the cost of urea and therefore AdBlue once again rising in price.

Upgrading your Gravity Hose Kit – Manual Rotary AdBlue® Pump

When first purchasing one of our AdBlue® IBC’s or AdBlue® starter kits, many of our customers will choose our basicAdBlue® Starter kit which contains a 1000 litre IBC and a Gravity Hose.

The Gravity hose kit is an efficient and inexpensive way to dispense AdBlue® from your IBC, but there are a couple of considerations to be made regarding its usage.

As the name suggests a gravity hose kit works on ‘gravity’, that means that once the  AdBlue® IBC level falls below a certain height the IBC will need to be raised up in order for the liquid to dispense. Some people do this by putting the IBC onto a secure platform eg, strong pallets.

A gravity hose can also be an issue if the tank of the vehicle (eg a big tractor) you are re-filling is higher than the IBC. Of course you could dispense it into (clean) AdBlue® containers, which can be a bit of a fuss if you are doing it regularly and sort of defeats the object a bit.

The high quality  Puisi Rotary IBC Pump Kit is directly mounted onto the bars of the IBC and has the following features.

  • Self Priming rotary hand pump with stainless steel outer casing on an IBC bracket
  • Sturdy and durable solution for dispensing AdBlue® from an IBC
  • Designed for fitting to lower IBC bars when the IBC is on a bund
  • Fits round and squared bar IBC’s
  • Smooth operation thanks to its rolling handle grip and quality construction
  • 3 metre delivery hose and plastic and stainless steel swivel spout with on/off valve

The current price (as of 6th March 2018) is £239.99 ex VAT – product code CTS1027 and is available for next day delivery.
