Hatz Launching New Common Rail Diesel
German diesel engine manufacturer Hatz will use Bauma 2013, the world’s biggest equipment and engine show, to announce what is probably the company’s biggest news in years — the launch of an all-new industrial diesel engine. The first of the new H-series engine family is a four-cylinder common rail liquid-cooled diesel that will be available for sale in 2014, the company said.
The 2.0 L engine is equipped with a Bosch common rail fuel system that delivers injection pressures in excess of 26,000 psi (1800 bar) and combined with the optimized combustion system, enables the engine to operate without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). Maximum power is 75 hp (56 kW) with a maximum torque of 177 lb. ft. (240 Nm), which is available at speeds as low as 1600 rpm, Hatz said.
The company has also reported low fuel consumption and service intervals as long as 500 hours, thanks mainly to a 1.8 gal. (7 L) oil sump and maintenance-free hydraulic valve train.
