SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) Emissions System, what sensor do I need?

An SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system is a system installed on diesel vehicles to reduce harmful Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions. It works by injecting an automotive grade urea, or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) through a specially designed catalyst, into the exhaust stream of a diesel engine. The Diesel Exhaust Fluid sets off a chemical reaction... Read more
