Integrated Emissions Control system configuration improves application integration
John Deere Power Systems debuted its newest Integrated Emissions Control system configuration at the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG trade show in Las Vegas. Configured with an inline aftertreatment device, the system is designed to offer greater packaging and integration flexibility to both internal John Deere and OEM customer applications.
“As we review the specific application needs of our internal partners and OEM customers alike, we continuously look for strategies that help improve application integration,” said John Piasecki, director of marketing, sales and customer support for John Deere Power Systems. “Our ability to tailor the configuration of our Integrated Emissions Control system allows us to accommodate increasingly complex packaging requirements while meeting the expanding complexity in world emissions standards.”
The new John Deere Integrated Emissions Control system uses an inline aftertreatment device that contains a diesel particulate filter (DPF), diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, achieving Final Tier 4 and Stage V emission levels. John Deere initially plans to offer the system in two sizes for the new 13.6L engine and is designed to be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
“Application integration was a fundamental driver for the development of an inline aftertreatment device for use in our Integrated Emissions Control system configurations. The device’s scalable design will benefit our internal John Deere partners, as well as our OEM customers, by offering them a streamlined solution in a more compact package,” said Piasecki.
John Deere designed its inline aftertreatment device with an enhanced diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) management system efficiency and performance. In addition, enhanced interface points ease application integration and reduce leak paths, connection points and heat loss,providing more robust aftertreatment performance.
“In its various configurations, the John Deere Integrated Emissions Control system represents continual technology optimization. It achieves Final Tier 4 and Stage V emissions compliance, and delivers the power, performance, ease of operation, fluid efficiency, reliability, durability and economical operating cost customers expect from John Deere,” added Piasecki.
All John Deere Integrated Emissions Control systems are exclusively designed to meet the specific demands of off-highway applications in the given power categories. With multiple configurations now available, John Deere has made it a goal to improve overall packaging and offer various packaging options for the Integrated Emissions Control system.
