FPT Industrial reaches 350,000 engines equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

Niels Tholen - 10 June 2013

FPT reported on 4 June it had hit a milestone of having installed 350,000 Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units on FPT diesel engines.

Since the introduction of Euro IV and Euro V regulations in Europe in 2005, FPT has used SCR technology as its sole aftertreatment system. The technology was also employed in meeting EU Stage III B and IV as well as U.S. EPA Tier 4A/4B off-road requirements.

The technology was developed at FPT Industrial's R&D facility in Arbon, Switzerland in 1991 and has since been adapted to FPT's HI-eSCR technology which improves combustion efficiency.

Massimo Siracusa, FPT Industrial Vice President of Product Engineering, said: "SCR has been a big part of our history of technical innovations, and today it is used in many of our engines. The technology continues to improve, as evidenced by the introduction of HI-eSCR, and the production of our 350,000th unit with SCR."
