Cummins reveals Tier 4 final QSX15 engine
With this higher PM filtration efficiency, the engine combustion can be formulated to increase power density and lower fuel consumption. The integration of SCR into the exhaust aftertreatment allows the CPF to reduce the frequency and duration of active regenerations below 1 percent of equipment operating time, creating a virtually full-time passive device.
The Tier 4 Final QSX15 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011 is showcased as a fully integrated power unit manufactured by Cummins Power Products. The self-contained unit carries forward the same packaging size from Tier 3 to Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 Final.
This package-proof capability is enabled as the QSX15 and QSX11.9 engines for Tier 4 Final 2014 will be almost identical to the QSX engines introduced to meet Tier 4 Interim in 2011. This ability to move forward to meet the near-zero emissions standards is pre-designed into the existing engine platform, with no significant change to engine system architecture.
The QSX engines retain a single Cummins Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT), avoiding the complexity of needing two turbochargers to achieve this level of power output.
