Perkins: The power behind your EU Stage V machine

Perkins - The power behind your EU Stage V machine

From 2019, EU Stage V will be phased in for off-highway diesel and mobile electric power engines across the full power range.

Through ongoing collaboration with Perkins, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will be able to meet the Stage V emissions standards while producing a new generation of machines that match end users’ demands for value, innovation and performance.

At Stage V, Perkins will offer a complete range of engines from 0.5 to 18.1 litres, delivering powers from 8.8 to 470 kW (12 to 630 hp). Our flexibility to meet individual customer requirements, ensures OEMs will obtain the value and performance they require from their engine supplier.

Proven Stage V capability

Perkins’ proven Stage V technologies include common rail fuel systems, selective catalytic reduction (SCR), diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) and diesel particulate filters (DPF).

Since Stage IIIB, machine developers and end users worldwide have taken advantage of our transparent DPF regeneration capabilities, proven across our 1200 Series platform.

Now in its second generation, we make DPF integration easier, as our Stage V engines continue to use a regeneration process that runs automatically without machine or operator interruption. This means machine duty cycles and workload are never affected and user productivity is always maintained.

With you at every stage

Through our Technical Integration Workshops (TIWs) we collaborate with OEMs on a one-to-one basis, exploring business strategies and aligning engine specifications to meet customers’ tailored requirements.

Our modular engine concept also gives OEMs a broad variety of options with a high degree of customisation, while driving down costs.

Full range engine provider

A global engine partner to OEMs, Perkins supports customer needs with a full portfolio of industrial engines. At Agritechnica 2017 Perkins is showcasing many of its Stage V engines including:

  • Perkins® Syncro 2.2 litre Our 2.2 litre has undergone a further upgrade to meet Stage V, with 10 percent more power and 29 percent more torque, compared to the previous Stage model. The engine is a perfect solution for OEMs looking for a reliable power source in the smallest possible package. It will be supplied with a DOC and DPF aftertreatment and does not require any SCR.

As with all Perkins engines, the engine will be offered with a wide range of factory configurable options to make the installation engineering task as easy as possible.

  • Perkins Syncro 3.6 litre - Perkins has designed a new 4 cylinder 3.6 litre engine, specifically to support the compact agricultural tractor market. The Perkins Syncro 3.6 litre, common rail engine, meets global emission standards including Stage V / U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final.

The engine offers powers up to 100 kW (134 hp) with up to 500 Nm of torque, and is compatible with most modern off-highway transmissions. It also includes a number of special features to meet the needs of agricultural tractors, where the engine forms part of the structure of the machine.

Engine features such as a 4 valve head and vertical injector offer an efficient combustion system, enabling Perkins to keep the size of the radiator pack down and help tractor manufacturers to design machines with good visibility.

The engine’s modular design ensures the 3.6 litre model can easily be integrated into existing – and future – generations of tractors and other agricultural equipment. 

Perkins 1204 – Perkins is introducing a new high-power variant of the Perkins 1204 range. Delivering up to 150 kW (202 hp) it provides customers with additional downsizing opportunities and will reduce the total cost of installation. The 4 cylinder models will meet Stage V / Tier 4 Final emission standards.

The compact yet powerful 4.4 litre allows OEMs to downsize without compromising on performance. With no change in aftertreatment size from the previous Stage / Tier offering and a reduced cooling package size, OEMs will be able to easily integrate the single and series turbo options into their equipment with minimum re-engineering. 

Offering robust and proven aftertreatment technology solutions, OEMs will see up to a 5 percent improvement in specific fuel consumption compared to the previous Stage / Tier 1204 engines, as well as an increase in torque of 10 percent, helping to reduce the total cost of ownership.

  • Perkins 1700 Series - A new industrial 9.3 litre engine, the 6 cylinder is a turbocharged aftercooled unit with direct injection and a fully electronic control system designed to meet Stage V / Tier 4 Final. With a power range of 250-340 kW (335-456 hp) it’s the ideal choice for hard-working agricultural applications, and delivers optimal performance in the harshest working environments.

  • Perkins 2400 Series - Perkins has expanded its industrial engine range with the addition of the 2400 Series at Stage V / Tier 4 Final. 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 compact aftertreatment and flexible mounting options will provide high performance characteristics while lowering customer’s cost of ownership and installation, making it ideal for the agricultural sector.

Adding value by design

“We deliver the very best customer value while ensuring our customers achieve the latest emission standards,” said Matthew Nurse, product manager at Perkins. “From initial concept through to tailored aftermarket solutions, OEMs can be sure of industry-leading technology and services designed for their business and applications.”
