Is brake flushing really necessary?
SEGA Brake Fluids DOT 3 / DOT 4 ; wwww.segalub.com
If you're like most drivers, you don't think about your brakes until they stop working (and hopefully you're not careening down a mountain road when this happens). But, if you're smart, you'll take good care of your brakes. You'll replace the pads and resurface the rotors as needed. Still, when your mechanic recommends that you get your brake system flushed, do you think you should you do it or save the cash?
Braking systems aren't indestructible. Parts, like the rubber in the valves in the master cylinder, calipers and wheel cylinders deteriorate. All the nasty little bits that flake off end up in your brake fluid. Plus, the fluid itself can get old and worn out. Moisture can also get in the system. That leads to rust, which leads to more nasty bits in your brake fluid. All this adds up to a brake system with compromised effectiveness and decreased stopping power.
Think of it this way: You wouldn't skip changing your car's engine oil, right? It's the lifeblood of your engine, and when it gets contaminated by impurities, you put the entire engine at risk. It's the same with brake fluid. Let it get dirty and you won't be able to stop as well. So while it may not seem like a big deal when you're standing at the service desk and the mechanic asks if you want him to flush your brakes, but when you're careening down that mountain road, you'll understand why it's an important part of vehicle maintenance.
A good rule of thumb is to have your brakes flushed about every 30,000 miles (48,280 kilometers) or so. Note that brake flushing and bleeding the brakes are two different procedures. Brake flushing involves removing all the brake fluid from the system and getting all-new, clean fluid inside. Brake bleeding just means removing enough brake fluid to get air bubbles out of the brake lines. So, make sure you get your brakes flushed regularly.
And, if you ever notice your car or truck has decreased stopping power, have it inspected by a certified mechanic right away -- even if you're not planning a drive in the mountains.

SEGA® AdBlue is a solution of urea (32.5%)
in water (67.5%) and is injected into the exhaust gas stream, where it reacts
with NOx to form harmless Nitrogen and water vapor. As an extra advantage, SCR
equipped trucks use less fuel thanks to the better engine timing, which is
necessary for the SCR system.
SEGA® AdBlueis kept in a separate tank in the
truck and should never be mixed with diesel fuel. Always keep the solution
clean from dirt and dust and be aware that it freezes at -11°C, but is usable
SEGA® AdBlue is essential for the cleansing and
reduction of harmful emissions and is injected into the exhaust gasses before
they enter the atmosphere. It is stored safely within a separate tank on
the vehicle, and is specifically measured and applied by spraying into the
exhaust manifold, reacting with the gasses within it, creating the cleansing
and catalytic effect. SEGA® AdBlue consumption is typically around 3% – 5% of
the diesel consumption for a typical vehicle, dependent of loading weight and
other relative factors.
Importance of Handling & Storing SEGA® AdBlue
By upholding and complying with the relevant
guidelines, SEGA® AdBlue will perform its role to the highest
standards but due to nature of the product it is easy to compromise the overall
Such things include handling and storage to name the
most prevalent types of misuse and it is not uncommon for vehicle manufacturers
to fail to support warranties if this type of misuse has occurred.
The two most important things to remember when
handling and storing SEGA® AdBlue is the storage temperature, which should
never fall below -11°C and secondly to prevent any foreign objects from coming
into contact with the solution causing contamination.
Providing it is stored correctly and is free from
contamination, it is widely accepted that SEGA® AdBluehas a shelf
life of 12 months.
To conclude, SEGA® AdBlue is a
fundamental resource for many modes of transport and is so important
it has been made an essential regulation that requires strict adherence
and governance. It is neither a fuel or a fuel additive, but a high
purity urea solution that must be used in a dedicated tank on your vehicle.
SEGA® AdBlue is harmless, non-flammable and
non-explosive. It is classified as a transportable fluid with minimal
risk. If you ever spill SEGA® AdBlue on your hands, simply wash
them thoroughly with water.
