With 18 new models, Case IH is the first and only agricultural equipment manufacturer to use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology alone to meet strict Tier 4 Final emissions standards.
“Achieving the Tier 4 Final standard was a colossal challenge, but Case IH has had fewer challenges than most because we determined early on that our patented SCR solution was the right choice and haven’t had to change direction,” says Kyle Russell, Case IH Senior Director of Marketing. “Since we got it right from the start, we’ve been able to meet the standard while still developing class-leading horsepower and efficiency in multiple equipment lines.”
The Case IH FPT SCR-only solution treats the exhaust flow downstream and after the combustion process from the engine, so the engine can generate maximum power without adding any complexity or compromising efficiency. There are no additional emissions systems or operational changes from Case IH Tier 4A to Tier 4 Final equipment.
Thanks to eight patents, the Case IH Tier 4 B solution delivers 95 percent NOx conversion efficiency. Competitive SCR systems provide only 80-85 percent efficiency and require a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and/or exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Many EGR engines also require shortened or additional maintenance intervals for oil changes and filter regeneration.
The next generation of Case IH FPT engines continues to offer the industry’s longest oil change intervals at 600 hours, minimal service requirements and more reliability thanks to lower exposure to soot and carbon in that is put back into the engine.
Case IH is a proven leader in SCR technology, with 35,000 engines with 17 million-plus operating hours in North America alone. Case IH FPT engines lead the industry in horsepower, efficiency and simplicity.
The Case IH Efficient Power family is all equipped with this proven high-horsepower, fuel-efficient, simple solution, boasting added power and new features to address producer needs.
