Perkins has expanded its industrial engine range with the addition of the 2400 Series at EU Stage V. Focused on delivering power density and performance, the 12.5 litre engine will be capable of power up to 430 kW (577 hp) and 2640 Nm torque.
The Perkins® 2400 Series, which is being shown for the first time at Agritechnica 2017, will utilise advance technologies including a compact aftertreatment, non-EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) air system and the latest electronics - controlling all engine and aftertreatment systems with a single engine mounted control module - to provide high performance characteristics while lowering customer’s cost of ownership.
Perkins design technology and high-efficiency SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) are the key enablers for a combined DPF/SCR (Diesel Particulate Filter) and DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) aftertreatment. Designed for transparent thermal management, the aftertreatment requires no operator interaction and has no impact on machine performance. The small package size and flexible mounting options will lower the cost of installation and are ideal for the agricultural and construction sectors.
The 2400 Series is designed to meet Stage V and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final. In addition, Perkins will be certifying all existing Stage IV/Tier 4 Final products in its 9-18 litre range to meet Stage V. With DPF technologies already in place, only minimal changes will be made to the DPF core to meet the emission standards. All products in this range – 1700 Series, 2200 Series, 2400 Series, 2500 Series and 2800 Series – will offer dual certification for Stage V and Tier 4 Final, providing customers with robust, global engine and aftertreatment solutions.
“To address the diverse requirements of a global emissions landscape, we’ve taken a customer’s approach. From Stage III/Tier 3 equivalent to Stage V/Tier 4 Final, we offer reliable, high performance engines across common core platforms, focused on reducing their cost to install and operate,” said James Schnuriger, Perkins product marketing manager for 9-13 litre engines.
