Tenneco To Supply ’07 Aftertreatment To International For Medium-Duty

Posted on January 25, 2006

Tenneco announced that it was awarded a contract with International Truck and Engine Corp. to supply exhaust aftertreatment systems for International’s entire line of medium-duty diesel vehicles with International engines, launching in 2007. The contract is Tenneco’s first in North America for diesel emission control technologies for the medium duty commercial vehicle segment.

Tenneco will provide International’s vehicles with complete exhaust aftertreatment systems, including the diesel particulate filter (DPF) and the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). The new exhaust system also features air gap pipe, designed to work together with other components to provide enhanced thermal efficiency and help improve fuel economy, along with a new hanging system which utilizes technology from Tenneco’s Clevite Elastomer division.

The development and engineering for International Truck and Engine Corporation is being done at Tenneco’s engineering center in Grass Lake, Mich., and production will take place at its exhaust manufacturing facility in Seward, Neb.
