Cummins Reveals Euro 6 Technology

Posted on March 28, 2012

Cummins has revealed its technology path to move its established ISB four- and six-cylinder products to Euro 6 emissions regulations in 2013. The engines will use a combination of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and variable geometry turbocharging allied with a new aftertreatment system which incorporates a diesel particulate filter (DPF) with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR).

At an event at its Darlington, England, plant, Cummins unveiled the next generation of its four-cylinder ISB4.5 engine for Euro 6 for trucks and buses. The company said the engine makes a “significant leap forward” for Euro 6 by merging the benefits of the Euro 5 product with the recently launched ISF3.8 engine and its EPA 2010 emissions technologies. Cummins also took the wraps off the next generation of the ISB6.7Euro 6 engine for trucks and coaches.
