... How Urea SCR Systems Work
Urea SCR cleans the exhaust after combustion. The urea solution is held in a separate storage tank and injected as a fine mist
into the hot exhaust gases. The heat breaks the urea down into ammoniathe actual NOx-reducing agent. Through a catalytic converter, the ammonia breaks...
