New Components Provide Robust, Reliable Urea Storage And Detection Capabilities For Off-Highway Applications
LAS VEGAS (March 5, 2014) – Cummins Emission Solutions, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc. (CMI:NYSE), today introduced its recently launched EcoFit Urea Tanks and Lines to the North American construction market, providing customers the added convenience and increased integration benefits of a fully packaged aftertreatment system for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
The EcoFit Urea Tanks and Lines portfolio provides a range of urea tanks with header unit assemblies containing intelligence for monitoring and maintaining accurate urea level, temperature and urea quality, as well as a wide range of urea lines to meet installation needs for many applications and engine platforms.
A key component of EcoFit Urea Tanks is the specialized urea quality sensor, designed to detect and monitor the correct urea liquid composition, allowing the system to function at peak performance. The robust sensing technology has been designed with the required vibration durability to withstand rough terrain environments and steep gradients. Built-in filtration capabilities improve the system’s reliability, capturing any foreign debris that may enter the urea holding chamber.
A range of electrically heated pressure, suction and throttle line lengths from 0.5 to 3.0 meters are available, in addition to four initial tank capacities of 5, 10, 15 or 30 U.S.
“As we strive to provide the best available aftertreatment offering to our customers, the ability to provide fundamental componentry hand in hand with our proven aftertreatment technology establishes an all-encompassing system ideal for the construction market,” said Marina Savelli, General Manager – Global Off-Highway Business for Cummins Emission Solutions. “Our EcoFit Urea Tanks and Lines product offering carries the benefits of easier installation and added flexibility, to adapt across a wide range of space-constrained equipment,” added Savelli.
EcoFit UL2 Liquid-Only Urea Dosing System
Continuing to bring added ease and benefits to our customers, the new urea tanks and lines complement the EcoFit UL2 Liquid-Only Urea Dosing System by offering an end-to-end, full-system package with robust characteristics across a wide variety of construction equipment.
Benefiting the off-highway market, the EcoFit UL2 proprietary design offers reduction of droplet size to as low as 24 microns SMD, promoting improved oxides of nitrogen (NOx) conversion efficiency for applications lacking onboard air. EcoFit UL2 is the only liquid-only dosing system in the market offering freeze-robustness in its design, and improved reliability, as urea is continually present within the unit to prevent crystallization and clogging.
Easier integration and improved flexibility benefits can be found in the system’s extended urea transfer line lengths of up to 15 meters, allowing the distance between the supply and dosing unit to be chosen more freely, without affecting controls technology.
EcoFit Aftertreatment Solutions
Keeping focus on the off-highway equipment demands for Tier 4 Final integration, Cummins Emission Solutions has leveraged its proven experience and technology to bring innovative aftertreatment solutions to the forefront, highlighting increased durability and decreased space claim. The aftertreatment architectures showcased at CONEXPO, including EcoFit Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs), EcoFit Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Systems and EcoFit Ultra-Low Emission Systems, illustrate dependable product technology for any engine platform in any environment.
