Heating cables for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) tubes

SCR Adblue®
To make vehicles Euro6 compliant, AdBlue® or DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) are used to reduce NOx emissions in the exhaust gases of diesel powered vehicles in order to meet the stringent environmental legislation. Adblue® freezes at -11°C and therefore needs to be heated in cold conditions.
Bekaert offers an extensive range of heating cables for SCR Adblue® tubes and tanks:

  • Bekinox® VN: Stainless steel microfilaments that allow direct contact with AdBlue®
  • Bekiflex®: Steel core with an outer layer of nickel, zinc or copper
  • Bekiflex® Hx: Helix cables with a hybrid structure combining a textile core and conductive wires - new -
