With Stage V becoming effective in 2019, FPT Industrial presented its off-road portfolio highlights suitable for this emission regulation at EIMA International (International Exhibition of Machinery for Agriculture and Gardening in Bologna, November 7-11, Hall 15, Stand B113).
FPT Industrial is prepared to comply with Stage V with its expertise and advanced technologies, delivering outstanding solutions for different sizes of agriculture applications and power units.
For an effortless transition to the Stage V models, FPT Industrial is using its second generation innovative, patented High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction after-treatment system (HI-eSCR 2). This technology allows the engine to achieve uprated standards avoiding Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and maintaining fuel economy, power and torque density. The HI-eSCR 2 also maintains the compactness of the solution due to its integrated particle filter on the SCR.
At EIMA 2018, FPT Industrial showcased the N67 Stage V, which has 13% higher performance comparied to the previous Stage IV model, with power and torque density up to 15% more than the competitors’ average, and up to 3% less fluid consumption versus the competition.
Part of the NEF family, which has sold more than 1.7 million engines since 2001, N67 is a 6.7-liter 6-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 354hp. The improvements on the Stage V version also extend to the service intervals, which are up to 1,200 hours – double the time of the predecessor model. The cooling and after-treatment system is 10% smaller than the competitors’ average, considering engines with the same architecture and displacement.
To deliver truly easy compliance with Stage V, FPT Industrial has developed ‘PowerPack’, a smart installation solution that encloses all key after-treatment components into a single package, providing straightforward installation of the N67 on Industrial Power Units (IPU).
Required components for the installation, such as DOC, SCR-on-filter, AdBlue injection system, sensors and manifolds, are included in the solution and, therefore, avoid the need for a¡ dedicated exhaust system design. The compact pack also offers FPT Industrial’s prevalidated architecture for fluid dynamics, manifold layout and sensor positioning.
For increased installation flexibility, the PowerPack can come engine mounted, as a ready– touse solution, or as a loose pack to allow OEMs to design their own layout. In both cases, all electrical signals and connections are managed by a single cable for fast and reliable linking to the engine and machine electronic management system. Moreover, the solutions have a wide variety of options that can be customized to fit a large range of applications.
F34 Stage V
The F34Stage V is also featured on FPT’s stand. The 3.4 liter, 4-cylinder engine delivers maximum power of 55Kw and maximum torque of 424 Nm.
For compliance with Stage V regulations, the F34 adopts a DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) + DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) after-treatment system, without requiring the installation of the SCR module.
Customers can rely on the F34 for agricultural and industrial applications, such as hydraulic power units, manure and dewatering pump units, water jet and blaster units, cable reel units, wood chippers and grinders, conveyors, rock crushers and concrete pumps. In view of these, the product is equipped with options specifically designed for Power Unit applications to preserve reliability, ensure quick load response, provide easy access for maintenance and reduce operating costs.
