Perkins To Display Stage 4/Tier 4 Final Lineup
Ahead of the introduction of further EU Stage 4 and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations, Perkins is showcasing its complete line up of Stage 4/Tier 4 final engines up to 225 kW (300 hp) at the 2013 bauma exhibition.
The new compact four cylinder 854F-E34TA will spearhead the range on show, which will comprise engines from the company’s 400 and 1200 Series as well. The new model incorporates specially optimized selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology for the first time. This is packaged separately from the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) module, giving OEMs greater installation flexibility in the engine bay, the company said. Space saving is further enhanced through the absence of a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
Performance from the 854F-E34TA has been boosted to 90 kW (121 hp) while the 8% improvement in specific fuel consumption (SFC) gained at Stage 3b/Tier 4 Interim has been retained, Perkins said.
Alongside the 854F-E34TA, models on display include the single turbo 1206F-E70TA, which offers up to 151 kW (202 hp) at 2200 rpm with maximum torque of 870 Nm at 1400 rpm. Perkins has packaged the DOC/DPF canister and SCR system into one integrated module, which can be positioned remotely in a machine chassis or directly on top of the engine.
Also on show at Bauma is the single turbo aftercooled 1204F-E44TA, which produces 110 kW (147 hp) and is designed to deliver improved fuel economy while offering great power and torque. The range is completed by the 404F-22, a four cylinder, 2.2 L naturally aspirated diesel that produces 36.4 kW (48.8 hp) at 3000 rpm and 143 Nm of torque at 1800 rpm.
Perkins is in Hall A4 Booth 316.
