If you’ve heard about the new 2011 Tier 4A engine emissions requirements, you’ve probably heard mention of Diesel Exhaust Fluid aka DEF. But, you might not know a whole lot about it. Below, we’ll shed some light on DEF.
What is DEF and when will I need it?
DEF – a stable, non-toxic solution made of synthetic urea and deionized water – is a key ingredient for the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment process being utilized in model year 2011 and beyond Case IH high horsepower tractors. In combination with proven Case IH engines, this technology will improve engine power and responsiveness, fuel economy, and overall durability for Case IH Steiger®, Magnum™, and Puma™ tractors, while helping them meet 2011 EPA emissions regulations.
By now, you’ve probably heard about the new federal regulations mandating cleaner, more efficient engines beginning in 2011. Maybe you’ve even heard some acronyms like SCR and CEGR and wondered what it means to you.
Listen up, class is in session!
Tier 4 emissions regulation was created to crack down on air pollutants – primarily particulate matter, which we know as soot, or unburned fuel, and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted as a by-product of an engine’s internal combustion process. Doing this requires the addition of an exhaust after-treatment system, such as Cooled Exhaust Gas Regeneration (CEGR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). (more…)
It’s a constant challenge – more and more demand for food, fiber, and fuel and less and less farmland to grow it on. To succeed, producers like you need equipment that delivers the most – from planting through harvest. And, you’ll need support from experts who put your needs first.
