Leo Bose, Case IH North American Commercial Training Manager, provides this guest blog post on Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. Case IH is the only company to meet 2014
Tier 4 B/Final engine emissions standards using SCR-only technology. Bose’s comments follow.
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is an engine exhaust after treatment that works outside the engine, rather than the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems or hybrid systems that combine both EGR and SCR, and directly impacts engine design and performance.
Case IH SCR-only systems have been found to have a number of benefits besides simplicity and superior emissions reduction. They help reduce the need for oil changes and cut fuel consumption compared to previous-generation emissions systems. These kinds of changes can make a positive economic impact over time.
Our SCR-only technology system is protected with eight patents. We work with the proprietary SCR-only system from Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) to obtain a very high NOx conversion efficiency. We have used it from the start, so our customers are comfortable with the solution and don’t have to switch or add complexity to get emissions controls to the Tier 4 B/Final standards level.
While it’s important to comply with new emissions standards, we also want to deliver long-term value to our customers. SCR-only engines allow us to deliver that value. Case IH engines by FPT feature some of the highest levels of power per liter, while maintaining industry-leading fuel efficiency.
Our customers who have used the Tier 4A systems have been extremely pleased. SCR-only technology delivers everything agricultural operators need, and it respects the needs of the environment as well.
Case IH is committed to helping our customers Be Ready to meet the demands of the future by providing them with superior efficiency and performance. To learn more about Case IH SCR-only technology, watch this video, visit www.caseih.com or see your local dealer.
