Cummins debuts EcoFit emission solutions

Cummins Emission Solutions, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., introduced the first of its next generation of ultra-high efficiency aftertreatment systems, the EcoFit Single Module, at MATS.

The EcoFit Single Module is designed to be up to 60% smaller and 40% lighter compared to the EPA 2013 solution it supersedes, all while improving emissions reduction performance, according to the company. The smaller size enables better heat management and retention for improved fuel economy capability, while the simple single-pass exhaust flow design delivers low back pressure, meeting the needs of end-user customers.

The simpler, innovative packaging allows for fewer variations, offering OEM system integration benefits, while providing end-user customers with a more robust and reliable aftertreatment system. This new solution, which will meet GHG and fuel efficiency standards for EPA 2017, specifically addresses the needs of medium- and heavy-duty engine customers in low emissions markets, Cummins said.

“We are very proud to announce this groundbreaking platform and believe it is a game changer in the commercial vehicle aftertreatment market,” said John Carroll, general manager—global on-highway business. “This product uses innovations in catalyst and urea dosing technologies unique to Cummins Emissions Solutions to deliver an ideal solution in the market.”

“We’ve achieved incredible results with this product through an entirely new engineering approach to aftertreatment systems,” Carroll continued. “Historically, aftertreatment systems have been designed to meet emissions requirements; however, we’ve approached the development of this system to meet our customer needs first, while also meeting emissions standards and maintaining product integrity. We designed a product that will not only meet, but also exceed customer expectations.”

Advancements in catalyst technologies have allowed the diesel particulate filter to have a bigger ash capacity, permitting for increased time between maintenance events and minimal operator intervention. Improvements in NOx reduction capabilities in the selective catalytic reduction system have been enabled by the use of the EcoFit UL2 liquid-only urea dosing system.

This product allows Cummins Emission Solutions customers to operate the optimal engine and aftertreatment system with minimal impact to their operations, added the company.
