Cummins debuts engines ready for 2010

Posted on October 7, 2008

[IMAGE]2010-MidRange-Aftertreatment.jpg[/IMAGE] Cummins Inc. debuted diesel, diesel-electric hybrid and natural gas technologies all designed to meet the near-zero 2010 emissions standards at the APTA Expo on Tuesday.


"We’re delighted to continue to offer this wide portfolio of options to meet the 2010 emissions standards,” said Tom Hodek, Cummins’ GM. “Cummins is committed to providing products with the right technology and an extensive and capable service network to stand behind them.”  

In 2010 Cummins will offer its midrange diesel engines with the same base architecture as its current line, with the addition of the Cummins Aftertreatment System to meet the upcoming emissions standards.

Meanwhile, Cummins’ ISB and ISL engines will feature enhancements, which include cooled EGR, High Pressure Common Rail fuel system, Variable Geometry Turbocharger, filtration and electronic controls. The Cummins Aftertreatment System will include Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology for the reduction of Nox, in addition to the Particulate Filters that were introduced in 2007.  

Cummins’ ISL G engine from Cummins Westport, which already meets 2010 emissions, will remain a strong product for the company, while its diesel-electric hybrid engines will also add SCR.
