As an AdBlue® Pump, the Ezi-action® Drumpump is the way forward for safe, reliable manual dispensing of AdBlue® into diesel vehicles. Already proven for AdBlue® dispensing in Australasia and North America, the resistance of the Ezi-action® Drumpumps to the acidic urea component of AdBlue® is being valued on and around the farm in UK, Ireland and Europe.
This feature is unique to NZ Pump Company and differentiates Ezi-action® Drumpumps as the leading AdBlue® Pump for manual dispensing.
Chosen by JCB as their AdBlue® hand pump.
After rigourous testing and in field studies the Ezi-action® 25/5 Drumpump has been chosen by JCB, a world leader in construction machinery, backhoe loader and telescopic handler manufacturing. JCB valued the proven performance of Ezi-action® Drum pumps in acids and the high quality of pump manufacture providing assurance that the purity of JCB AdBlue® would not be compromised during dispensing.
JCB Action Pumps are supplied alongside the new and exclusive JCB AdBlue® range.
Farmers and AdBlue® dealers in Britain tell us that Ezi-action® Drumpumps are the only hand pumps they have used that can cope with AdBlue. We are proud that as an AdBlue® Pump, Ezi-action® Drumpumps, do not give up. They have told us that other pumps including lever and syphon pumps rapidly deteriorate with acidic AdBlue®.
There are reliable electric pump options. However they are pricey and cost about £500 to £1000 +.
Ezi-action® Drum pumps are cost effective. They last for years.
Ezi-action® Drum pumps, as an AdBlue Pump, are unique as they are fully serviceable and can be rinsed inside the shaft of the pump ensuring a clean pump free of contaminants.
Proven Around the World
They are proven for dispensing AdBlue® around the world including in USA and Australasia.
"We have several customers using your pump for AdBlue in both 200litre drums and 1000l IBC with great success and finding them extremely reliable. Your pumps have replaced in some cases rotary hand pumps that have failed in a very short time. With your products we have no issues at all. The users of these pumps have been very impressed with the pump having the adaptor fittings to suit different drums and spare seals that to date have not been required. For our purposes of dispensing AdBlue your hand pumps are very efficient and reliable, and the price is extremely competitive making you our only supplier of pumps."

ADBlue ® FACT SHEET
WHAT IS AdBlue®? : AdBlue® is a trade name for AUS32 – an aqueous urea solution of about 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-inonised and demineralised water. It is injected into the exhaust gases and, as it passes through a catalytic converter, it prompts a chemical reaction that converts nitrogen oxide (NOx) into nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour.
WHY IS AdBlue® ON THE FARM? : Since 2005, legislation on diesel vehicles in the UK & Ireland and in the rest of Europe demands a drastic reduction of NOx emissions. Vehicle manufacturers, and first and foremost those of large goods vehicles including tractor manufactures, have had to re-think the exhaust system on their vehicles. More and more diesel cars, tractors and other off-road vehicles are also now equipped with the SCR system in the exhaust.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A VEHICLE RUNS OUT OF AdBlue®? : If a driver continues to ignore the AdBlue gauge and warning lamp, the tank will run dry. The vehicle’s NOx emissions levels will soar, and then the next time the vehicle is started, its power output will be significantly downrated as the empty tank and increased emissions are registered by the vehicle’s ECU. The loss of power is very noticeable to the driver. Power will be restored when the system is refilled, but the ‘event’ will be recorded on the vehicle’s ECU, and be visible to manufacturer’s service technicians.
WHAT ARE THE RULES ON THE FARM IN UK AND EUROPE for AdBlue®: The new rules apply to all engines with power outputs over 100hp, including cover tractors, combines, self-propelled foragers and sprayers. With stocks of the previous engine models dwindling, most manufacturers are now introducing complete new ranges to comply with the legislation. AdBlue® is fast becoming one of the most common chemicals on the farms.
