FPT Industrial presents latest construction power solutions at Intermat 2015



Innovative powertrain manufacturer FPT Industrial will display its latest solutions for construction applications at Intermat, to be held at Paris-Nord Villepinte – France, next April 20 – 25.

FPT’s range for the construction sector is very broad, spanning from 33 to 570 kW, lately revamped with a state-of-the-art engine, the Cursor 16 for heavy duty applications, winner of prestigious title of DIESEL OF THE YEAR ® 2014, recognized by the Italian magazine “Diesel”.

FPT Industrial will be present at Intermat in Hall 5B, Stand L041, with experts on hand to discuss the company’s solutions for the construction market and future perspectives in the powertrain sector.

R22 and Cursor 16 engines: FPT’s smallest and biggest solutions for the world of construction

At the bottom of FPT’s range, the customisable R22 engine, developed in partnership with Italian VM Motori, features Common Rail fuel injection and a fixed geometry turbocharger with after-cooler and waste gate valve. Assuring service intervals up to 600 hours, the engine is able to comply with Tier 4B/Stage IIIB emission regulations thanks to an FPT Industrial’s maintenance-free after-treatment solution, specifically developed to achieve emission levels required for power outputs below 56 kW. This solution adopts a combination of Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Partial Flow Filter (PFF), canned in an integrated converter.

The Partial Flow Filter (PFF) oxidises particulate matter (PM) that is regenerated passively by nitrogen dioxide (NO2) when the engine is operating at normal temperatures of over 240°C. However, if running at lower temperatures, unlike diesel particulate filter (DPF) widely used in engines under 56 kW, a PFF will not clog with PM avoiding any backpressure increase. To ensure a perfect PM conversion in all conditions the filter has been combined with a unique engine management system designed by FPT Industrial’s Research & Development Centre in Arbon, Switzerland.

The R22 is suitable mainly for construction machineries such as skid steer loaders and mini excavators.

As FPT’s flagship engine, the Cursor 16 delivers 18-litre performance in a 13-litre package and offers best in class power and torque density, rated and max power as well as service intervals.

Compliant to Tier 4B/Stage IV emissions standards thanks to the patented HI-eSCR system, the engine delivers power outputs of up to 570 kW with maximum torque of 3,320 Nm at 1,500 rpm in its single stage version and up to 630 kW with maximum torque of 3,500 Nm at 1,400 rpm when available in its double stage version.

The Cursor 16 is the first FPT Industrial engine to adopt a Compact Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder head; this high performance material provides high thermal and mechanical resistance. Combustion is optimized by the use of steel pistons, creating high peak cylinder pressure and, as a result, high power density and low Particular Matter (PM) output. Combustion optimisation is furthered with a FPT-developed double re-entrant combustion bowl, two different turbulent vortexes within the bowl allow for the accurate control of fuel and air mix to maximise performance and minimise emissions, while ensuring no residual fuel is left on the cylinder lining.

The engine features a third generation Common Rail system, of up to 2,200 bar under cover, allowing a precise control of the injection process. Meanwhile, the Cursor 16’s ball bearing turbo charger with waste gate further increases engine efficiency.

The Cursor 16 is specifically suitable for large construction and material handling equipment, such as wheel loaders, excavators, cranes and dumpers.

Both R22 and Cursor 16 will be present on FPT’s stand at Intermat.

Other FPT’s engines on show

At Intermat 2015, FPT Industrial will also display its N67 engine for medium duty applications.

With a maximum output of 210 kW (286 hp) and a performance curve providing full torque of 1,143 Nm @ 1,500 rpm, constant output and required power delivery is guaranteed for a wide rpm range. This makes it easy to save fuel while working at a low engine speed and maximum torque, or to work at rated speed with a full reserve.

The NEF engine meets the stringent requirements for Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emission regulations through urea-based High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction (HI-eSCR), avoiding the use of either Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) or Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

The N67 also features second-generation Common Rail fuel injection technology, charge air cooling and fixed geometry turbocharger with waste gate valve.

Thanks to these features, the engine delivers top performance in load response, torque and power with minimal fuel consumption, while assuring leading efficiency, robustness and reliability.

FPT Industrial’s Power Generation offering

At Intermat 2015, FPT Industrial will also show its Power Generation offer, represented by a 100 kVA soundproof genset powered by an N45 unit.

FPT soundproof generators offer an extremely compact layout, characterised by easily accessible maintenance points and dust and water-proof doors; they guarantee lower running costs in continuous operating power, best in class oil intervals (up to 600 hours) and are specially designed to operate in extreme climate conditions.

FPT Industrial’s power generation offering includes G-drives, standard and rental gensets, covering the main applications, such as emergency services and self-generation, and special groups, plants and after sales services.

Engines powering the line-up include F32, NEF and Cursor series powerplants, ranging from 30 to 500 kVA. A variety of customization options are available, including open or closed power sets equipped with sub-frames, electrical machinery and control panels.

With environmental initiatives a priority for FPT Industrial, the genset offering complies with emission regulations without compromising its outstanding performance.
