As part of the overall process the company worked in collaboration with Perkins and Secodi, Perkins French distributor, to explore the challenges surrounding the installation of the required EU Stage IIIB engines – Perkins 4 cylinder 1204E-E44TA and 6 cylinder 1206E-E66TA models.
Despite the constraints of the narrow machine architecture, imposed by having to straddle the vines, there was sufficient clearance above the engine to have the compact aftertreatment mounted on top. Working with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools, the optimum solution was found whereby the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) and for changeover the DOC and selective catalytic reduction (SCR), could be installed and integrated within the existing machine lines. Importantly Pellenc was able to maintain the compact size of the harvester through this work.
