ContiTech improves SCR Lines
Second generation with heatable quick connectors
Selective catalytic reduction technology (SCR) is employed in diesel engines to transform harmful nitrogen oxide (Nox) into steam and nitrogen with the help of a urea solution. The heated high-performance hoses developed by ContiTech specially for this purpose on EPDM basis transport the urea reliably to where it's needed and ensure that the aqueous urea solution does not freeze at low temperatures.
Alongside these tried-and-tested lines, the company has now launched a second-generation SCR hose line on the market. It is equipped with heated quick connectors with optimized bonding, guaranteeing that the medium always thaws, right up to the connection. Two types of bonding are available: a PUR overmold for the entire connector or a modular system. ContiTech also offers three hose types: the previous standard solution; an advanced, higher-quality rubber hose with butylin layer; and a plastic solution.
