Pioneer in powertrain technology, FPT Industrial will showcase its agricultural solutions at Agritechnica on November 12 to 16, 2013 in Hanover, Germany, including its new R22 engine.

FPT Industrial’s off-road lineup spans five engine families, from 2.2 to 20.1 liters with power outputs from 33 to 606 kW. The latest addition, the R22, will be launched at Agritechnica. It has been developed with long-term partner VM Motori S.p.A. and furthers FPT Industrial’s customer offering as it enters the low-displacement agricultural and construction sector.

Providing 33 to 52 kW and up to 250 Nm of torque, the compact and efficient three-cylinder, 2.2 liter engine meets Tier 4 Final/Stage IIIB emission regulations. Suitable for machinery with a gross weight of 1.6 to 3.1 tonnes, the R22 includes technology such as Common Rail fuel injection and a turbocharger with aftercooler and Waste Gate. Exacting customer requirements are met with FPT Industrial’s personalization options, while it also delivers service intervals of up to 600 hours.

Further examples of the company’s diverse Tier 4 Final/Stage IV product range will be on show through the class-leading 4.5 liter N45 and 6.7 liter N67, offering up to 129 kW and 230 kW respectively. The Cursor 13 will also be on display. Producing between 316 and 515 kW, it has been developed to deliver high specific power outputs while keeping fuel consumption and running costs low in heavy-duty applications, such as tractors and combines.

To comply with Tier 4 Final/Stage IV, the NEF and Cursor Series engines are equipped with FPT Industrial’s innovative High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) technology, which has NOx conversion efficiency higher than 95% and will also be on display at Agritechnica.

HI-eSCR represents the latest breakthrough in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which was pioneered by FPT Industrial at its Research & Development Center in Arbon, Switzerland. Initially addressing Tier 4 Interim diesel engine emission regulations introduced in 2011, SCR technology has been proven in over 350,000 units and continues FPT Industrial’s tradition of innovation, dating back to 1903.

The R22 engine

Developed with long-time partner VM Motori S.p.A. at its Cento plant in Italy to FPT Industrial’s standards, the R22 marks FPT’s entry to the low displacement off-road sector.

Main R22 features and benefits:

  • Most compact engine of its segment
  • Single-side service
  • Service intervals of up to 600 hours
  • Meets Tier 4 Final/Stage IIIB emission regulations
  • Suitable for machinery with a gross weight of 1.6 to 3.1 tonnes
  • The use of hydraulic tappets and an ‘Antiphone’ insulated sheet metal front cover minimizes engine noise, improving the end user’s working environment
  • A wide scope of customization possibilities including fan, alternator and transmission interface options, different starter motor and power take-off positions

F5 Series (3.2 to 3.4 liters)

Featuring a customer-orientated design, the F5 Series stands out for low operating costs and easy maintenance thanks to single-side service, and is available in both a 3.2 and 3.4 liter versions.

Irrigation power units

As part of its lineup for agricultural applications, FPT offers also a series of power units, especially suited for use in irrigation pumps. The European Stage IIIA line-up is powered by three engine families (F5, NEF and Cursor) from 3.2 to 12.9-liters with power outputs from 55 to 375 kW. These engines are equipped with options specifically designed for Irrigation Pump applications in order to preserve reliability, easy access for maintainability and for reducing at maximum operating costs with the guarantee of a product assembled directly from the engine manufacturer.

The F32 power unit (Tier 3/Stage IIIA) will be on display at Agritechnica. Featuring proven and reliable technology, the 3.2-liter F32 engine is ideal for continuous duty applications. Equipped with mechanical rotary injection pump, the F32 for power unit applications is available with power ratings from 55 to 65 kW. The power units equipped with F32, best sellers with the 55 kW version among whole FPT Industrial power units line-up, are best in class for oil interval change (up to 600 hours).

NEF Series engines (4.5 to 6.7 liters)

Setting the standard in its class, NEF engines offer high-performance, reliable, cost-effective and compact solutions to power a wide variety of agricultural and construction equipment applications.

FPT Industrial’s HI-eSCR for off-road applications

With a focus on maximizing combustion efficiency and reducing particulate matter production to meet regulations, the HI-eSCR solution avoids Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and thereby the need of DPF filter. This aftertreatment system enables engines to be compliant with Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emission regulations achieving a NOx conversion efficiency of more than 95%.

Main HI-eSCR system components are:

  • Supply Module
  • AdBlue dosing module.
  • Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
  • AdBlue mixer
  • Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
  • Clean Up Catalyst (CUC)

Patents established during development include:

  • ‘Closed’ loop control for precise AdBlue dosing
  • Adaptive dosing system based on NOx and ammonia sensors
  • Thermally insulated high-turbulence mixing
  • Enhanced exhaust gas temperature control

The main advantages for customers can be summarized in:

  • No EGR and no DPF result in higher fuel efficiency, lower operating costs and better packaging complexity
  • Long maintenance intervals (up to 600 hours, depending on the application)
  • Increased vehicle productivity due to better transient response
  • No complex turbochargers solutions required to be in line with competitors’ performance
  • Lean technology improving durability and reliability
  • No additional cooling system requirements, considering both radiator dimensions or fan drive
