JCB Power Systems unveils Tier 4 Final emissions solution at CONEXPO

Rebecca Hayward - 12 March 2014

JCB Power Systems exhibited its Tier 4 Final emissions solution for the EcoMAX engines at the CONEXPO trade show event which took place in Las Vegas, during 4-8 March 2014.

The engines use a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) solution which is contained in one canister. The SCR catalyst is incorporated into a single exhaust silencer which replaces the existing exhaust box in most cases, thus it is referred to as a 'one can' emissions solution.

JCB's EcoMAX engines utilise combustion technology and the 4.4 litre and 4.8 litre engines meet the required standards without the use of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The EcoMAX engines have been recalibrated for Tier 4 Final emissions legislation which the company claims has resulted in a 5% fuel saving compared to previous models.

The Tier 4 Final emissions standards for non-road vehicles, effective from 1 January 2014 require emissions of NOx and Particulate Matter (PM) to be reduced by approximately 90%.
