Market-leading power in new Perkins models

Market-leading power in new Perkins models

Perkins newest 9 and 13 litre industrial engines, the 1700 and 2400 Series meet the latest emission standards with market leading power in a compact, lightweight engine with field-proven aftertreatment technologies.

Perkins is dedicated to driving innovation forward in support of our customers. Our engines evolve to mirror the changing needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with updates and improvements to keep them at the leading edge of performance and reliability.

Our newest products in the 9-13 litre range, the 1700 and 2400 Series families, are designed with a common goal, excellent power density that results in lower installation and ownership costs while meeting EU Stage V and other global emission standards.

The 1706J is the star of Perkins® 1700 Series range, a powerful, compact and robust family that leverages a proven 9.3 litre core engine. It’s a 6-cylinder model that features market-leading power of 250 to 340 kW (335 to 456 hp) and torque density in a lightweight engine system, and was the first Perkins engine to be certified to Stage V.

“We had the 1706J at Bauma in 2016 as a concept,” said James Schnuriger, Perkins product marketing manager for 9-13 litre engines. “Now it’s a mature product and has been in production for more than a year.” 

Technology that delivers

Thanks to the most recent design advances, including an updated common rail fuel system, patented aftertreatment technology and removal of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), the 1706J delivers outstanding power density (up to 36 kW/L). Its aftertreatment system is compact and lightweight (96 kg) and is offered as engine mounted from the factory to reduce design, installation and validation costs or can be remote mounted in a number of configurations where more flexibility is needed.

“We’ve designed it to support OEMs downsizing engine platforms on machines such as air compressors, hydraulic excavators and rock crushers/screeners without sacrificing performance or reliability,” said James.

OEMs planning to sell similarly-powered machines in different territories will find it easy to install the Perkins® 1706D as an alternative. This model meets UN ECE R96 Stage IIIA equivalent emissions standards without the use of aftertreatment, sharing a common core engine and machine interfaces with the 1706J.

Market-leading power

The 12.5-litre Perkins® 2406J engine is making its Bauma debut this year. James said: “We unveiled it in November 2017 but it’s already nearing production; the order book is open and we expect to ship the first certified production engines by this summer.”

The 6-cylinder, 12.5 litre 2406J builds on the success of the Perkins® 1706J, using similar technologies to achieve market-leading power of 430 kW (577 hp). This engine is capable of torque and response only previously achievable in our 15 litre platform – at 32 percent lower system weight.

“We want our engines to help make every customer more successful,” said James. “Working with Perkins reinforces the power of collaboration.

“Our component and system experts have worked closely with our customers to prove the engine and aftertreatment will exceed expectations for performance and durability, whether they are digging at high altitude and low temperatures or crushing rock in desert temperatures and dirty conditions.

“With fully configurable products and the support of Perkins engineers, OEMs can realise a reduced cost of installing engines in their machines. Perkins engines are simple to integrate whether OEMs are upgrading or downsizing. High performance includes meeting the most demanding emissions standards around the world. Both the 1706J and 2406J are truly global solutions, certified to EU Stage V, U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, Japan 2014 and Korea Tier 4 Final on common hardware and label.

“The Perkins brand stands for reliable, robust power and is your guarantee of excellence.”

The 1706J and 2406J utilise complementary aftertreatment technology. Compact and lightweight, it is offered as engine mounted from the factory to reduce design, installation and validation costs or it can be remote mounted in several configurations where more flexibility is needed.

The 1706J was the first Perkins engine to be certified to Stage V.
