Gentech International Ltd and Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co.,Ltd. announce SCR combined quality and Level Sensor.

Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co., LTD (Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan; President: Yoshihiko Takebayashi) and Gentech International Ltd (Headquartered in Girvan, UK; Managing Director Angela Simkins) have reached an agreement to supply SCR Combined Sensors utilized in the DEF/AdBlue® tanks of diesel powered commercial vehicles with SCR emissions systems. Mitsui’s urea quality sensor, named Senfoa®, has been integrated into Gentech’s level sensor which is mounted in the top of the DEF/AdBlue® tanks on commercial vehicles. The relationship between Gentech and Mitsui will be advantageous to OEM’s as they will be able buy a combined module that will handle DEF/AdBlue® tank quality and level requirements.

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is an exhaust after treatment method used with diesel engines to reduce NOx emissions. The SCR system relies on the injection of an aqueous urea solution into the exhaust stream in order to facilitate the reduction of NOx emissions. This aqueous urea solution (32.5% urea and 67.5% demineralised water by weight) is called Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) in North America and is called AdBlue® in other parts of the world. The quality of DEF and AdBlue® is strictly defined by ISO and DIN standards.

Senfoa® Capabilities
The EPA 2010, JP 09, and Euro VI emission legislations all address the importance of DEF/AdBlue® with their OBD requirements. Mitsui’s Senfoa® is able to satisfy all pertinent OBD requirements. Senfoa® detects and communicates the actual urea concentration percentage of the DEF/AdBlue®. This allows Senfoa® to easily discover illegally diluted DEF/AdBlue®. Senfoa® also detects and communicates instances when non-DEF/AdBlue® liquids are intentionally (or unintentionally) added to the tank.

Mitsui Experience
Mitsui was the world’s first manufacturer of urea quality sensors for heavy duty trucks, starting in 2004, with the Japanese market.

Gentech International Ltd
Gentech provides sensing solutions globally and has nearly 40 years experience in the truck, bus, and off-highway markets and relationships with many key OEM’s. Head office is in the UK with sales offices and world wide distribution.

In response to customer requirements the level sensor currently supplied will now be offered with an integral quality sensor requiring no further modification of the tank, assisting customers to move forward as smoothly as possible to meet challenging deadlines.
