How Does Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® Work?

BlueTEC® diesel works differently than the standard diesel engines you’re used to driving in Riverside. Here’s how Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® works:

  1. A diesel oxidation catalyst reduces carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons before being released into the atmosphere.
  2. A nitrogen oxide trap continues the process by removing nitrogen.
  3. A particle filter traps soot particles, then burns them off when the filter’s full.
  4. A Selective Catalytic Reduction catalytic converter changes any remaining nitrogen oxide to harmless nitrogen and water.

A variable-vane turbocharger makes for more powerful combustion. At the end of the process, AdBlue® liquid solution helps convert the nitrogen oxide to nitrogen and water. This process leads to an engine with a less harmful amount of emissions that still has ample power and torque. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC® diesel van has the power to manage a heavy payload with ease without leaving the same amount of earth-unfriendly exhaust as a cargo van with a gas engine.
