GoClear

As well as supporting New Zealand farmers, Ballance also supplies products to a range of industrial businesses.

Keeping Our Air Clean

GoClear Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is an exhaust system additive and scrubbing agent that reduces nitric oxide (NOX) emissions in modern diesel engines. GoClear is used by lean burn engines which are equipped with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction).

SCR has become the preferred emissions reduction technology for nearly all diesel vehicles including trucks, buses, cars and off highway equipment required to adhere to global emission standards. Euro 4 and Euro 5 emission standards can be met with either the older process of exhaust gas circulation (EGR) or SCR technology, while Euro 6 standards requires the use of SCR to achieve the lower limits of NOX allowable. Off-road vehicles required to adhere to Stage IV / Tier 4 emission standards are using SCR. New maritime heavy fuel engines which are also ‘lean burn’ are also starting to utilise SCR.

Guaranteed Quality, Guaranteed Supply

Major engine manufacturers use SCR systems to control the release of harmful NOX gases in exhaust fumes from lean burn diesel engines. SCR systems comprise a catalyst, an ultra-pure liquid urea solution, and the hot exhaust gas. Injecting the urea solution into the hot exhaust gas in the presence of the catalyst causes the harmful NOx gas in the exhaust to be converted to harmless nitrogen gas and water vapour. To ensure the SCR system remains effective, it is essential to use a high-quality, purpose-made urea solution. GoClear meets all of the quality requirements for SCR systems. Made with locally produced urea and ultra-pure demineralised water, GoClear is manufactured to ISO 22241 standards. Furthermore, because it is made at a facility dedicated to producing urea, supply is guaranteed. On-site storage tanks mean that GoClear is always available, even when the plant is undergoing scheduled maintenance.
 

Manufacturing

The manufacture of GoClear is carried out at New Zealand's only ammonia-urea manufacturing plant located in Kapuni, Taranaki. GoClear is proudly made in New Zealand, negating the additional freight component and associated environmental footprint that comes with imported products. The product is made by taking aqueous urea solution upstream from the granulator and mixing this with ultra-pure demineralised water, thereby achieving a nominal 32.5% urea solution. Stringent quality testing is then undertaken for purity analysis of each batch. Once approved, each batch of GoClear is coded for distribution to ensure full traceability.

World Class

IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand) are New Zealand’s premier accreditation body. IANZ accreditation is independent and globally recognised. IANZ accredited organisations undergo rigorous and regular assessment of all areas of their accredited technical operations, ensuring test and examination results and inspection reports are reliable. 

Every batch of GoClear is tested by Ballance to ensure it complies with the International ISO22241 Standard.

Gaining accreditation by IANZ means organisations and customers have independent assurance of:

• Ballance’s competent and experienced staff.
• The integrity of materials and calibrated equipment.
• Technical validity of Ballance's testing methods.
• Internal and external quality control checks.

IANZ accreditation is an assurance that Ballance operates effective quality processes and recognises their technical competence as world class.
