CUMMINS HIGHLIGHTS LOW-EMISSIONS LEADERSHIP AT WORLD AG EXPO14 February 2017 for TULARE, California
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) showcases its emissions leadership at the World Ag Expo through Feb. 16 by highlighting proven U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Final engine and aftertreatment technologies - but that's not all. For the first time in the North American agriculture market, Cummins debuts the next generation of ultra-clean engines, which will be available beginning in 2019. Designed to meet European Union (EU) Stage V emissions regulations, they offer distinct advantages to North American manufacturers.

Visitors to the Cummins booth (M6/M8) will see multiple Tier 4 Final power solutions. As many customers in the agriculture business undergo the transition to Tier 4 Final, Cummins is dedicated to being a stronger partner than ever, through unrivaled engineering support from start to finish. Cummins views itself as a true business partner to each of its customers, and is dedicated to providing value through customized products and expert system integration, followed up with 24/7/265 support through 1-800-CUMMINS™ (1-800-286-6467).
Visitors to the Cummins booth will also get the chance to see a next-generation B4.5™ engine. The 4-cylinder engine achieves a remarkable increase in power and torque, enabling significant opportunities for OEMs to downsize engine package size, and reduce costs.
"Although the Stage V regulations do not affect North America, our Stage V engines will be certified for Tier 4 Final so that we can offer the significant product and technology enhancements to agriculture equipment manufacturers from 2019 on," said Jim Branner, OEM Account Manager - Cummins Off-Highway Business. "This next generation of products will appeal to every OEM looking for significantly improved performance with lower installation costs for Tier 4 Final. They will be able to benefit from lower running costs, lower weight and easier installation."
Also in the booth will be Cummins latest aftertreatment system for Stage V - the Single Module™. With leading combustion and air-handling technology the Single Module allows the 2019 engines to be Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)-free. The system combines a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and urea-dosing technologies in one unit, providing up to 50 percent reduction in envelope size and 30 percent reduction in weight compared with earlier products.
- The "fit-and-forget" system is capable of removing emissions almost entirely by
- passive regeneration, with no impact on equipment operation, and requiring no operator interface or intervention.
"With those substantial performance gains, our new generation of Tier 4 Final/Stage V engines will deliver more from a smaller, lighter package," Branner said. "Customers will see over 10 percent more power and almost 20 percent more torque than the engines' predecessors while using less fuel."
